4. Detailed Application Instructions

Products can be applied with a paint brush, a push broom, a low nap roller with a long handle or a Commercial Airless Sprayer. For larger commercial jobs. We recommend using a commercial grade airless sprayer. Graco, Bulldog or Titan brands work well. Call for specifications..   

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. Large cracks may be filled with a sandable filler. Follow seam taping instructions. Mask all sensitive areas before starting.

1) Remove loose dirt, moss, and debris from the roof surface and power wash. Be sure that the surface is clean and dry before starting application of product.

*(Optional) Ames Super Primer may be needed if the surface is deteriorated or has a hard to stick surface such as aluminum or silver roof coating. Apply Super Primer at the rate of 1 gallon per 200 square feet.

(2) Prime with two to three coats of Super Elasto-Barrier until roof surface is smooth and sealed.

(Optional) Ames’ Peel & Stick Seam Tape may be needed for any splits, tears, separated seams, vents, as well as penetrations. Apply Seam Tape over dried Super Elasto-Barrier.

(3) Finish with one to two coats of Maximum-Stretch or a similar Ames product as needed to complete application. The minimum application of Super Elasto Barrier and Maximum Stretch is 2 gal/100 sq. ft. for each product.
