Verify desk/substrate openings, curbs, and protrusions through deck/substrate, woof cant strips and reglets are in place and solidly set.
3.
Verify deck/substrate is structurally supported secure, and sound.
4.
The contractor shall determine the condition of the existing structural deck/substrate. Defects in the deck or substrate shall be corrected before new waterproofing work commences. Areas of deteriorated deck/substrate, porous or other affected materials must be removed and replaced with new to match existing.
5.
Verify that roof substrate is securely attached and watertight before starting with the application of the restoration/coating system.
6.
Remove unused pipes and vent stacks, fill holes with similar roofing assembly to existing.
7.
Prepare flashing substrates as required for application of new waterproofing membrane flashings.
8.
Inspect substrates, and correct defects before application of new waterproofing. Fill surface voids greater than 1/8 inch (3.2 mm) wide with an acceptable fill material.
9.
Remove all loose aggregate, dirt, dust and foreign debris by vacuum, washing, sweeping or power blower in order for the applied materials to adhere positively to the substrate in an acceptable manner. Areas of heavier dirt, dried mud or contamination may require washing. Use appropriate cleaning method necessary to achieve clean surface.
10.
Remove ponded water, snow, frost and/or ice from the work substrate prior to installing new waterproofing materials.
11.
The final substrate for waterproofing shall be clean, dry, free of loose, spalled or weak material including coatings, mineral aggregate and flood coat/gravel surfacing, oil, grease, contaminants, abrupt changes in level, waterproofing agents, curing compounds and free of projections which could damage membrane materials.
12.
Verify that weather conditions meet manufacturer requirements.
 
** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** Delete methods for preparing substrates not required.
 
B.
Substrate: Existing EPDM, TPO, PVC, or Metal.
1.
Apply a 12" x 12" test patch of the acrylic coating system prior to full roof surface installation to ensure adequate adhesion.
C.

FIELD QUALITY CONTROL
A.
Provide on-the-job inspections, technical assistance and material application guidance as may be necessary to complete roofing material application in accordance with Tropical Roofing Products warranty requirements.
B.
Inspect completed coating system and correct all defects to meet the specification and/or warranty requirements.
C.
Arrange manufacturer inspection of the completed coating system and repair any defects identified.
D.
Take photographs of representative roof areas, including detail work before work commences, after the surface has been properly prepared, after all flashing and detail work has been performed, and after the application of the coating membrane.
3.7
REPAIRS
A.
Transparent or Thin Areas: If areas appear to be undercoated, recoating may be needed to ensure final thickness to meet the Tropical Roofing Products specifications Total Dry Mils.
B.
Delamination:
1.
Verify that all coated areas appear to be fully adhered to the substrate. A visual inspection looking for typical signs of poor adhesion such as flaking, blistering etc. should be made. Re-priming and/or recoating will be required if such areas are apparent.
2.
Delamination is caused when water-based coatings freeze, or solvent entrapment in solvent based coatings occurs. The coating surface may exhibit extreme wrinkles, small blisters and may have loss of adhesion. These areas will not "self-heal" and must be removed, power washed and a new coating must be applied.
C.
Pin Holing: Certain job or site conditions may result in pin holing or out gassing during curing or cause pin holes in the substrate. Again, a visual inspection looking for typical signs of out gassing such as excessive pockmarks, pinholes etc.
D.
Texture Finish: Heavy patterns, blistering, "skinning," etc. may appear in the final finish. These may be indicators that the coat is too thick, a build-up has occurred or another application problem. Check with Tropical Roofing Products Technical Representative for remedial advice.
E.
Damaged or punctured membrane: Cut, clean, and dry damaged area. Repair per manufacturer instructions.
