As one of the leading manufacturers in the roofing industry, GAF provides solutions for virtually any commercial roofing situation. HydroStop® PremiumCoat® Roof System solves the problem that most flat roofs have: keeping it well-preserved. The following video provides an overview of the HydroStop PremiumCoat Roof System installation process.
The HydroStop PremiumCoat Roof System is intended to be installed on existing single-ply, built-up roofing (BUR), structural concrete and metal roofs. While it can also be used on newly installed roofs, it works best on roofs that have settled on the substrate. In addition to creating a weatherproof seal, the HydroStop PremiumCoat Roof System can add features the original roof might lack, such as reflectivity and wind resistance.
The HydroStop PremiumCoat Roof System is a liquid-applied product, which means the commercial roofing system should be thoroughly cleaned and dried, with structural issues addressed, before installation can begin. If the property is due for a roof replacement, a GAF-certified contractor has to inspect the property to make sure it’s suitable for use with the HydroStop PremiumCoat Roof System. An adhesion test will be performed to determine the type of primer needed.
As detailed in the video, HydroStop PremiumCoat Roof System is installed in three stages:
A layer of primer will be applied to the cleaned and dried roof, and allowed to dry. The primer is colored green to allow installers easily find missed spots.
Hydrostop Foundation Coat and Fabric work like flashing and will be applied to joints, transitions, curbs, drains and where the roof plane meets a wall. The fabric will reinforce the liquid foundation coat. Hydrostop Foundation is colored a different shade of green for easy visual identification. This layer needs to be dry and walkable before proceeding with the next step.
HydroStop Finish will be applied using either a brush roller or a paint sprayer. This layer is colored white for two reasons: it helps the installer ensure a complete coat, and it adds reflectivity to the roof. A final quality inspection will be conducted before the roof is pronounced complete.
If installed correctly, the HydroStop PremiumCoat Roof System can extend an existing roof’s lifespan, improve its durability and reduce building cooling costs.
