Flat Roofs with Adequate Drainage

Flat Roof Solutions Slide Show

The Ames® Company specializes in the making of specialty rubber and plastic coatings that extend the life of roof surfaces. These products stretch with the surface and form a waterproof membrane that seals and protects your roof.

Before beginning any project, read all instruction labels. 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.

Ames premium elastomeric products are Waterbase, VOC-free, Environmentally Friendly, and Clean easily with Water.

How to Repair a Flat Roof

How to fix flat roofs with Ames roof coatings is really a simple process even for the “do it yourselfer”. The first thing you should do is to power wash the entire surface area of the roof, which will remove most of the loose material. Use caution, so as not to damage any interior areas due to roof leakage that are inside the building. Fill any large cracks and crevices with mortar. Install adequate drains to drain flat roofs.

Peel & Stick, self-adhesive contouring seam tape

Seam tape all cracks larger than one-eighth of an inch with Ames Peel & Stick Seam Tape. This tape comes in 2 inch, 4 inch, and 6 inch widths by 50-foot rolls. This rubber tape contours easily to the surface and will stick with remarkable adhesion to the surface. Once applied the seam tape will be difficult to remove.
