Applying Butyl Liquid Rubber
The size of your roof will determine the method of application. Generally, for roofs of less than 5000 sq. ft, a squeegee and roller should be used. You will need: an electric drill (a cordless drill will be ineffective), a long handle rubber squeegee, a 1/4-inch nap roller and zylene or mineral spirits for clean-up. For larger jobs over 5000 sq. ft, assuming you have the equipment, you will want to consider an airless sprayer. Below are the specifics:
