If you find yourself applying coatings in the winter, here are some helpful hints to help you have a successful project:

1. Use a base coat such as Super Elasto Barrier, and top coat with a reflective coating such as Maximum Stretch.

2. Our coatings will be able to absorb and accept a small amount of water when they are being applied, but it is best you make sure an area is totally dry before you start applying coating. This will result in the best adhesion to the surface.

3. As always, patch test the surface to make sure the product works to your satisfaction before you move forward with the entire roof.

4. Check the weather. If there is a good chance of precipitation in the forcast, hold off on coating until there is a break.

5. Start in the morning so the coating is allowed to cure doing the warmest part of the day.
