#2

the sloped roofing product is a synthetic slate, you can tell by the bends in the caps. nice replica though. the low sloped one is unclear. Do you take these pics from a helicopter cerb?


#3

Lamarite or ecostar

One ply mopped down? Too far, but it sure is wrinkly.


#4

#2 is a peel and stick.


#5

Are you serious? It looks like a hack temp job.


#6

Aaron, you would be correct. The first photo is of Tamko’s Lamarite. Very good my man. Now, how about the second photo? If nobody gets it after awhile, I post a different photo of the same roof.


#7

Can you zoom it in a little?


#8

First on looks like slate floor tile to me.


#9

Here’s the best I can do without making it too easy.

Ah, it looks like I’ve stumped the panel with photo #2. Any last guesses before I post the answer?

Here is one last look at the membrane in question:

#11

Is this product supposed to be mopped down? Is it normally used in this application?

Where the F— is roofboss? :slight_smile:


#12

Yes, it is supposed to be mopped down, though this particular crew didn’t do such a great job of installing the membrane. FWIW, I also do not like this particular membrane, and think it is a waste of money.


#13

Well, I dunno. Looks like a Grace IWS to me, and that aint supposed to be mopped down.

Whatever it is, it doesn’t look watertight.

Also like the debris and crap laying about. Safety first :frowning:


#14

It looks like either Grace 3000 or FR 40 butyl membrane. Does not look very good though.


#15

Well, apparently I’ve stumped the panel, and roofboss isn’t even going to try and give ya’ any help Aaron. So, the answer to what kind of membrane was shown in photo #2:

It is a CTEM (Coal-Tar Elastomeric Membrane) roof membrane, as sold by Hyload. Personally, I wouldn’t ever recommend the product any more than I would a Garland, Hickman or Tremco roof. It just isn’t worth the extra money, and I don’t think you can justify the added expense. If you put the CTEM membrane over a 20-year asphalt BUR roof, you still have a 20-year roof system.


#16

looks like someone cut epdm into 3’ strips and started to mop it…and mixed jack daniels into that 2 liter of coke!! and i assume if thats what they did then this would be the accurate result. :smiley:


#17

Alright, cerb, roofboss aint answering…what is it? And why is it so open-looking?

What Tremco product were you referring to. I ask because I installed a standing seam galvanized steel roof by Tremco like 7 years ago and so far no problems. I never even heard of Tremco before that or since. Is there something wrong with the system I installed? Just curious, my ears perked up like a german shephard :smiley:


#19

There is nothing wrong with Tremco. I like their sealants just fine, but like Garland and Hickman, their BURs are overpriced. Don’t know about their metal roofs.


#20

I guess you missed the earlier post. It is a CTEM roof, and I wouldn’t use it on my dogs house FWIW. That is not to say it is a bad product, I just don’t have any use for it.
