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: 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.

Step 2: Prime with two to three coats of 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 Elasto-Barrier®.

Step 3: Finish with one to two coats of Maximum-Stretch® or a similar Ames® product.

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