Ames Liquid Applied Seamless Monolithic Reinforced Membrane Roofing & Roof Repair System
Written by Tim Simpson, Quality Assurance and Quality Control Manager, Maintenance Coatings Inspector
A simple workaround for the weak spots created by seams and joints in a roofing system is to have no seams at all. In a monolithic membrane system, liquid materials are applied in bonded layers to provide a fully gap-free roof surface.
Ames Monolithic Seamless Reinforced Membrane Roofs are superior in that roof components are combined at the project site and liquid-applied for a custom fit to the building’s roof. What results is a fully adhered protective membrane that seals out all moisture, eliminating roof leaks and the costly upkeep otherwise associated with non-monolithic systems. Periodic maintenance of this Ames Liquid Applied Roof System can extend the life of the roof for decades.
The Ames Liquid Applied Seamless Monolithic Reinforced Membrane Roofing & Roof Repair Systems are made up of chemically bonded multiple wet applied layers of elastomeric coatings and reinforcing membrane. This monolithic membrane includes Ames Maximum Stretch UV Stable Reflective Topcoats, Ames Elasto-Barrier Waterproofing Elastomeric Basecoat, Ames Seam Tape and Ames Reinforcing Fabric. All components become an integral part of the monolithic membrane. The installed product has excellent adhesion to the existing roof deck substrate.
Ames Research feels that – given the choice in fabrication of a reinforced membrane in our manufacturing facility, then delivering it to projects in rolls, and finally seaming all the pieces together, it is preferable to deliver the materials in a liquid state along with all the reinforcing accessories to the project. Applicators then install the Seamless Monolithic Reinforced Membrane tightly adhered to your roof substrate.
Ames® Maximum-Stretch® is a flexible, high-quality rubberized acrylic elastomeric coating with reflective properties blended especially for restoration of aged and deteriorated roofs. It has been designed specifically for waterproofing and maintaining many types of existing roofs & roof substrates. Maximum Stretch is used as a stand-alone roof coating and as a topcoat in our multi-layer Roof Coating Membrane Systems.
The finished product is a flexible, high-quality rubberized acrylic elastomeric coating with reflective properties blended especially for restoration of aged and deteriorated roofs.
