Clean and Prepare the Roof
Read all label instructions before beginning.
Always run a test patch first in an inconspicuous area,
to ensure that proper adhesion and drying occurs and the
product works to your satisfaction. Be sure surfaces are
clean and dry before the coating application. All
major cracks, joints and seams should be caulked with Blue
Max trowel-grade liquid rubber. Do not use a silicone caulk. Follow
seam taping instructions. Mask all sensitive areas before
Seam Tape & Prime the Roof Surface
It is important to seam tape all joints
and cracks to avoid future cracking and leaking. Use Ames'
Peel & Stick Seam tape (PS250, PS450, PS650) to seam
tape flashing to wood; wood to wood; concrete to wood; metal
to wood; brick to wood; etc. Apply around flashings, windows
and cracks in the walls. Refer to Ames Seam Tape label for
application instructions. Do not use fiberglass or asphalt
impregnated seam tape.
