Farha Roofing got the call to come out and inspect an 80,000 square foot shopping center type facility. The owner explained that the Single-ply, EPDM, roof was out of warranty and starting to leak. Farha Roofing found that in addition to leakage there was also some ponding water, making SEALGUARD VFI-990 SILICONE an excellent choice.
Farha Roofing chose to use a Volatile Free, Inc. Roofing solution. This included:
1. VFI-#11 Water Based Epoxy Primer
2. VFI-Butyl Tape
3. SEALGUARD VFI-990 SILICONE
First, Farha Roofing thoroughly cleaned the EPDM roof. Second, they applied the VFI-#11 Water Based Epoxy Primer for the best adhesion. Third, Farha used Butyl Tape to seal seams, termination and penetrations that needed extra reinforcement. Last, they spray applied SEALGUARD VFI-990 SILICONE to complete the project.
This system stopped all leaks, restored integrity to the roof and saved the business a costly tear off.
VFI-#11 Water Epoxy Primer is a general purpose, two component, water based, epoxy primer. It provides excellent adhesion and superior strength to most metal, mod bit/BUR, single-ply, concrete and wood.
