Pitched Rolled Roof

Application Instructions


Power wash the surface to remove all dirt and debris and be sure it is completely dry before the coating application. 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.

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. Click Here for Specifications


Step 1: Prime the surface with Blue Max®. If silver coating is on surface, prime at the rate of 1 gallon per 100 sq. ft. If the roof is badly deteriorated, old and leaking, prime with Blue Max® at the rate of 2 gallons per 100 sq. ft.

(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 Blue Max®.

Step 2: Finish with Maximum-Stretch® at the rate of 2 gallons per 100 sq. ft. or a similar Ames® product.

Low temperatures, high humidity and evening and morning dew will require increased drying/curing time.
