Basic Layout

Step 1: Deck Preparation All loose gravel, dirt and debris are removed and disposed of. any blister's, splits or other defects in substrate are repaired.
Step 2: Foam Insulation A seamless blanket of three pound density polyurethane foam is spray-applied to the properly prepared, dry deck. The foam is installed to a minimum thickness of one inch, with additional thinkness used in low spots or where additional insulation is desired.
Step 3: Silicone Membrane The silicone coating is spray-applied in two separate contrasting color coats at a minimum thickness of 15 dry mils.
Step 4: Roofing Granules An optional layer of ceramic coated roofing granules may be applied in the topcoat befor it cures. The roofing granules are used to enhance aesthetics, minimize dirt pick-up/discoloration, provide a non-skid surface, increase foot traffic resistance or may be required to meet U.L. Class A requirements at steeper slopes on certain urethane foams.
