Resort Property (Mexico)
Project Overview:

Project involved 7 Buildings of which 6 were typical and one slightly larger. Roofs were approx. 5500 square feet. Total square footage of the project was 50,000. Buildings are 8 years old and due to Existing single ply Torch on failure and substrate failure, all roofs were removed and new concrete poured to accept EPDM product. Proper slopes were incorporated in new roof design including proper drainage and scupper installations. Project is located 30 miles North Of Manzanillo Mexico on the west coast. Units are on the Ocean and subjected to high humidity, sea salt and heavy rains in July to October especially. A six man crew was required as they worked in pairs to complete tasks. AC enclosures and penetrations were started 1 hour before rollers were started. Crews were coordinated to work areas together to keep materials fresh. Pails were mixed as they were required. Total time from start to finish was 4.5 hours. No thinners were used and rollers and applications were performed as per manufacturers instructions.

Note crews were experienced in torch on applications and painting as they are part of our full time maintenance crew during the years. EPDM materials was fairly easy to work with. We adjusted our application based on temperature expectations and humidity forecasts. We started early in the mornings and were usually completed around 11:00 A.M. We mixed the pails as we required them, as we found as the day heated up in Mexico, the application time was allowing us approx. 1 hour before we were noticing tacking.

There was major prep to the buildings and once prep was 100% to our satisfaction, the EPDM was very easy to install.

As I have used other products in the past, I am very impressed with the EPDM product for its apparent quality. The end product is very solid and appears to have strong adhesion. We had minor bubbling , however as gases dissipated the bubbles settled down. I have asked our manager to take pictures of the complex to try to get most of the buildings in one picture.

Good morning Guys Adam here from Best Western!

We just wanted to say thank you for these great products. We had been having roof leaks on an EPDM roof which were previously, a very temporarily fixed with FlexSeal. After we applied the primer / liquid rubber solution to these areas the leaks stopped, and the rubber is adhering very well to the existing roof. We have also attached before and after pictures for you to use as you wish, as well as for the complimentary $25 AMEX card offer we saw on the receipt.

Thanks again!

I work at a paper mill In Franklin Virginia, which at the start was a small lumber mill. In the later part of 1930 it became a paper mill. So a lot of the buildings here are flat roofs. Most have been upgraded to either vinyl or rubber membrane style roofs. As a planner, I have had the option to try various products on repairs to these roofs. To little or no avail have I been very successful till now. Price has never been of much importance to me, However results are vital.

After trying numerous products claiming long lasting results, I found many of your competitors claims untrue. I have read your products specifications, uses, and applications. Seemingly so, I wanted to use EPDM COATINGS a try. I had a small project. A membrane on a high traffic roof. Had sagging issues from standing water. A few small sections where the vinyl/rubber has torn and separated.

With minimal effort, following the specific instructions for the application of the EPDM LIQUID RUBBER was applied. The results, lets just say I placed my second order of EPDM LIQUID RUBBER today. This coating in my own personal opinion is worth the money you spend. I am pleased with the results. This coating is holding up very well on this high traffic roof. Carts roll over the repairs, people walk over the repairs. We just had three days of thunderstorms in a row. Where all the other products I have tried failed. EPDM LIQUID RUBBER has held true to their claims. It really works.

Hi, guys sorry I did forget to take pictures (I am 64 years young :-) I was applying liquid RV roof around the air conditioner and nearby roof sections on our 1994 Fleetwood Montara.

I purchased a total of three (3) gallons and then the primer on Aug 6 and Sept 7 ( item number 200965125152 ).

Note that some of the old elastomeric roofing has completely peeled off (blackish area) down to the original rubber roof. Plus there are more than a dozen patches scattered around. I wanted to make the roof look more like a roof and less like a ratty old quilt, and MORE IMPORTANTLY, I wanted to stop all the leaks. SUCCESS on all fronts!!

Sirs,

Last week I applied some of your liquid rubber coating to the rubber membrane roof on our facility. We are not doing a full roof coating at this time, but we are using the liquid rubber to solve some leak problems.

I must say that your product is as easy to work with as your website indicates. We spent a few hours removing gravel and then cleaning the area to be coated. After the area was dry, the liquid was mixed with the catalyst and then applied using both paint brushes and rollers. For those interested, the consistency of the liquid rubber is almost exactly that of marshmallow Fluff. It looks the same and has the same texture, and is just as sticky as Marshmallow Fluff! However, the liquid rubber went down very easily, both by brush and with the rollers. The job was quick and simple. And the next rain will tell us if we have finally resolved the roof leaks.

My only disappointment was in the butyl tape. We found that very difficult to get good adhesion to the roof. Those areas that were very flat accepted the butyl tape much better than any area with even a slight amount of texture or unevenness to the surface. And I really do not understand why the butyl tape has adhesive on both sides. I think it would have gone down much easier if the adhesive had only been on one side.

However, that is a minor complaint. Overall I am very happy with your product. I am attaching a couple of pictures of areas before and after application of the liquid rubber. 24 hours before the "BEFORE" pictures, each of these areas was covered in 2" to 3" of gravel. The hardest part of the job was moving the gravel away from the areas which we planned to coat.

Thank you for an excellent product.

Our roof if now complete. As you know this was a two year project. We have a 25,000 ft roof with numerous other coatings on it. 25% built up with at least 4 coats of elastomeric and 25% metal with a Dicor product that we kept reapplying and the other 50% original metal. We tackled the first two parts using your proflex primer and then the liquid epdm rubber. After two years it passed with flying colors we did the job ourselves so I am sure it took longer than it needed but we were extremely relieved and a little surprised that the roof did not leak the first winter after application. Normally that is when we encounter our leaks due to the expansion and contraction of the metal against the coatings. You sales manager will remember me for sure because I was highly skeptical with yet another product claiming to end all roof leaks and also that yours was not so reasonable. To any customers reading this here is a valuable money lesson I learned; if you need brain surgery find the best doctor you do not want to repeat that operation. This is true for my roof for years we kept spending money on top of money for cheap coatings not to mention my staff time up on the roof. This liquid epdm is not cheap but after my lesson do you really want a CHEAP roof product? I basically spend $1.28 per square foot with this product and over the past 5 years over $5.75 with the other products. Hope this helps those out there with the same situation we were in. Sorry guys I did promise pictures but we can not seem to find them.

My initial feedback is that the stuff is excellent. A real money saver for me as the leaking roof on my 1985 Coachman was making the RV nearly unusable. It did thicken a bit faster than I thought, and it hasn't rained on the roof yet, so my glowing review is only preliminary. So, at this point your product is batting a thousand. My motorhome is 23' long and /- 10' wide, but one gallon nearly covered the entire roof, which was leaking like a head wound. I'll take a few pics of the uncovered portion and the covered end, then send them to you. The product may have added years of life to a very old RV.
