i have a 1 year old flat roof , and yes it still leaks. it is a torch down rubber roof, i need to aluminum coat the roof, was wondering what the difference between fibered vs non fiber roof coats. i can't seem to find much info on the subject.

Torch down rubber,..????? !!

Can you supply a photo ?

Putting the wrong coating on the wrong product can lead to product failure. There are agents and solvents involved.

it id described in the contract as a granulated rubber roof. and before you tell me to contact the roofer, they are now out of buisness, something i understand is common. they used a propane torch to the back of the roofing material to adhear it to the substrate.

This is my third attempt for this site to recognize that I AM LOGGED IN and better finally post my reply !!

It sounds like Modified Bituman, a vulcanized, roll roofing, air tight system many companies have their own version of.

It is not RUBBER in any way. It is basically cured asphalt on the surface, layed on top of a fiberglass matting, with un-cured asphalt on the back to heat-bond to the substrate and laps. Flashings and edges are key to it`s effectiveness. It can be cold applied. Aluminum is not an acceptable flashing metal for heat application. Other similar products can be mistaken and ruined when heated. It can be damaged by overheating (visible). It comes in smooth and granulated. It can be coated with all asphalt compatable coatings (includeing driveway seal).

If you could post a few photos I could examine, I`ll go over coatings and prossess better.

it is called a granulated rubber roof, rubber may just be an easy way for them to say what it is. i'll try and get some pics online in a few days.
