Resort Property (Mexico)
Project Overview:

Project involved 7 Buildings of which 6 were typical and one slightly larger. Roofs were approx. 5500 square feet. Total square footage of the project was 50,000. Buildings are 8 years old and due to Existing single ply Torch on failure and substrate failure, all roofs were removed and new concrete poured to accept EPDM product. Proper slopes were incorporated in new roof design including proper drainage and scupper installations. Project is located 30 miles North Of Manzanillo Mexico on the west coast. Units are on the Ocean and subjected to high humidity, sea salt and heavy rains in July to October especially. A six man crew was required as they worked in pairs to complete tasks. AC enclosures and penetrations were started 1 hour before rollers were started. Crews were coordinated to work areas together to keep materials fresh. Pails were mixed as they were required. Total time from start to finish was 4.5 hours. No thinners were used and rollers and applications were performed as per manufacturers instructions.

Note crews were experienced in torch on applications and painting as they are part of our full time maintenance crew during the years. EPDM materials was fairly easy to work with. We adjusted our application based on temperature expectations and humidity forecasts. We started early in the mornings and were usually completed around 11:00 A.M. We mixed the pails as we required them, as we found as the day heated up in Mexico, the application time was allowing us approx. 1 hour before we were noticing tacking.

There was major prep to the buildings and once prep was 100% to our satisfaction, the EPDM was very easy to install.

As I have used other products in the past, I am very impressed with the EPDM product for its apparent quality. The end product is very solid and appears to have strong adhesion. We had minor bubbling , however as gases dissipated the bubbles settled down. I have asked our manager to take pictures of the complex to try to get most of the buildings in one picture.

      Overall, I am impressed with the results I obtained in using Liquid RV roof on my trailer. It was MUCH easier than replacing the membrane with new, and seems to have repaired my leaking roof, extending the life of my RV, as at some point, the cost of reroofing would exceed the RV’s value. Thanks in advance!

      My roof was in bad shape. I cleaned it and kept after it a few times a year. We bought the RV used, and there were signs of neglect when we bought it. It had been obviously sitting in the sun for an extended period of time without any care or maintenance. I was about to buy a sheet of EPDM and forego the labor intensive and very expensive task of replacing the sheet roof. Then I saw a video on Youtube for Liquid EPDM. So the research began. “This… Read more

      I was able to quickly find the 2 pictures I took after I patched the roof. I will continue to look for the before pictures, We have a flat roof with a channel down the middle that leads into a drain pipe system that has been our weak point area all along. Then we installed a sky light which was like adding gasoline to a fire. For years I was blaming the sky light that we installed. We even replaced portions of the sky light and sealed around it many… Read more

      The epdm rubber roof was easy to work with. I am very pleased after having a leaky roof that will be good for many years to come. Roof had mold on it so we first killed the mold with Clorox and water and scrubbed I down and then cleaned the roof with Dawn dish detergent. Attached are the before and after pictures. ThanksRick M.
