The Ames Research Laboratories office has been going through some repairs. We have been in this building for over 30 years (Wow!) so it’s time to give it a little love. A lot of our projects utilize our coatings and products, but we wanted to share this one with you. Follow along in this series as resident handy man John puts on his floppy hat and fixes our roof.

The roof needed to be repaired first. John removed old, problem wood and replaced it with new plywood before applying coating. Preparation is key, and applying our coating to a well prepped roof will ensure you get the most out of it.

The plywood and surrounding roof were then coated with a base layer of Super Elasto Barrier. This part of the roof gets especially large volumes of water in rainy seasons, so the base coat of Super Elasto Barrier helps really protect the roof from water damage and helps the top coat adhere to the surface better.
