Self Adhered Commercial Roofing
Self-adhered roofing systems are the wave of the future. No screw guns, no kettles, no torches, no more five gallon pails of adhesive. The only down fall is that they will not work when installed by less skilled applicators. For a commercial roof replacement you will need to contract your local roofing professional.
Self adhered roofing products eliminate worries about maintaining proper liquid adhesive coverage on the job site. These roof systems have taken a lot of application variables out of the equation by using factory applied adhesives. The speed of installation is surprisingly quick.

Proper alignment of the sheets is critical to seam integrity. Maintaining proper pressure during installation is critical. Application of the membrane in low temperatures may compromise adhesion. Moisture on the substrate from rain or dew can contribute to poor adhesion of the membrane.
These membranes address many industry concerns, including labor shortages.
