Proper roof preparation is essential for successful coating application.
We recommend that these application suggestions be used as a guideline for applying Snow Roof Systems products. Please remember, these are only suggestions. Product durability depends upon surface preparation and sufficient material usage for thickness. Always run a test patch first, in an inconspicuous area, to ensure proper adhesion and drying.
There are literally hundreds of different types of roof applications and situations. The majority of these roofing systems can be saved and the life extended dramatically when properly coated. For product information or technical assistance, explore this web site, or contact us.
Weather & Drying Guidelines
Snow Roof Systems products are best applied between 50°
to 90°F (10° to 32°C) on warm dry surfaces. Apply when the
streets are dry, the sun is in the sky, and no inclement weather is in
the forecast. Dries in 2-8 hours, depending on thickness of application
and weather; cures in 24 hours. Low temperatures, high humidity, and evening
and morning dew will require increased drying/curing time.
Depending upon the roughness of surface, preparation, and specific application, Snow Roof Systems products may require one or more of the following:
Roof Maintenance Systems Simplified
