Greg/Lenny, and Gang,
I am very impressed with your product. Our roof had severe leaks before. Obviously as a car dealer with a showroom we were very concerned that nothing had fixed them to date. We purchased your product and applied it earlier this year. We were very concerned last week as the remaining storm from hurricane/Tropical storm Ian just came through dropping over 2 inches of rain during that period. Happy to say the building is dry. Not one leak!
Initially our seams were the issue but decided to coat the entire roof while we were doing the project. SeamTight was applied to the seams, and we embedded the poly fabric into the seams let dry and then came back and coating the entire roof with the Liquid Butyl Rubber. Our AC areas were really bad, so we coated around those first with the SeamTight. Was very impressed with the way that the product self-leveled. We had tried the traditional products from the local stores. Elastomerics and acrylics but they did not hold up after a couple years plus most required primers. We considered silicone but when we found that it attracts dirt and looses it UV after a few years we continued our search. We tested your product on our 2nd floor area last year before we decided to coat the roof. It is true on the site what it says once this is down you are not peeling this up. Expecting to do our other roof next year that one is about 22,000 sq ft.
Thanks, Terry, for submitting in your photos
We had a continual leak that plagued us for the last three years we tried other products but after several rains the leak always come back. This was a roof that was applied with an elastomeric coating about 18 months ago and started to peal in certain areas. We first took epdm coatings suggestion and reinforced the seams with their seam tape prior to applying our Liquid Butly Rubber. We also caulked around the joints with their Butyl MS Caulk and let dry overnight. The next day we applied the BLR at a rate of 50 sq ft per gallon. It was very clear from the beginning that this was a very different type of product. We had plenty time to work with it and it was very easy to apply. Much thicker that the last two products we used, and as we rolled the product, we could see the roller marks disappear and what remained was a very nice seamless membrane. I really looked like someone put a 400 sq ft single sheet of rubber on the roof. I was very confident at the time we applied the product that the seams will hold since the product adhered very well.
It has now been about a year, and we have yet to have a leak. Love the fact that there was no primer needed. The other brands after I told them we had an elastomeric said we needed a primer and two coats of their topcoat. Great tech support as well. I had called in a few times, and they picked up the phone and were there to assist. We will be a customer again. Already told our neighbor who I think already bought from you guys.
Existing EPDM roof was leaking. No visible signs of the leak. Prep work consisted of application of SeamTight along the seams prior to the application of the Liquid BUTYL Rubber. Product was applied at the rate of 230-250 sq ft per 5-gallon pail. Here are some photos of the job we did with your product. Thanks !

Thank you for your product. It turned out to be all you said it was and more. Now I am thinking about using on my new deck on my cabin in the Sequia mountain range.
These pictures (attached files) show you the 355 sq. ft. deck before application and after. The deck was covered with role roofing (which leaked). You can see that I applied a few gallons of cheap white elastomeric patch mostly to level it out where the roofing overlapped and then top-coated it with your Butyl Liquid Rubber. More than satisfied with the outcome and the ease of use. This house is nestled on a hillside which is approximately 15 miles inland from the ocean.
I received the gallon of our product today, thank you. I just wanted to let you guys know, if you do not already, your product works EXTREMELY well for sound deadening on plastic. We have tried different products but found our solution. I am not sure exactly what kind of plastic it is (pictures attached). They are the covers for my bike. I applied one really thin coat, let it cure over night, then applied a coat approximately 5 - 7 mm, and then just let it sit for two days.
It got rid of all the rattling (vibration noise) in those covers.
Its awesome! Thanks again.
Hi Lenny, I recently ordered and used the product to reseal my roof and it worked out extremely well. See attached pictures. We used your seam sealer around the sides and on some of the seams that my neighbor put down and that stuff is the bomb. It really made a nicely prepared surface for the butyl liquid rubber. Yours was the best product all around after reviewing your site in detail. I am an engineer so when I saw it was ASTM certified that sold me. I will be telling my colleagues
Thanks, Jeff Stuecklen
Here the previously sent email with photos of product usage. If I could still get the $25 promotional rebate. I used your product and it worked beautifully! If I can do it, (a 62-year old lady) anyone can do it.
A roofer had said it would take $5000- $8000 to replace the patio roof in order to stop the leaking because it was not installed properly. I do agree that it will eventually need a new roof over it or replaced but wanted to extend its life until the entire house roof is replaced. My neighbor also will be buying from your company. You folks were very patient with me I did ask a lot of questions.
I followed your steps carefully and we had rain - NO leaks First time in a long time! Not a drop when before it was coming in from 2 of the seams.

Here are some before during and after pictures of our roof. As you can see the seams were really bad. We applied the tape around the perimeter and then applied the Butyl Liquid Rubber. It is now about 6 months since the application and it turned out great. The product did everything it said it would. Excellent support staff as well.
Customer has an existing epdm roof that was giving them problems for years. They decided to coat both underneath and on top of the epdm roof. In addition they ran the butyl tape down along the seams prior to the application of the Butyl Liquid Rubber. We followed up with the customer 15 day later. They told us three days ago a storm went thru and this was the first time they did not need a bucked inside their warehouse. What was interesting is that the water leak occurred approximately 25 feet away from where it was getting into the building.
Hello all at EPDM coatings
Well it fixed the leak never found out where it was but finally leakproof one coat of the Butyl Liquid Rubber
