          7.Refer to the Uniflex Technical Memo - RE: Moisture Survey Requirements.
 
          B.Based on inspection and testing, make a roof plan to show all areas of water intrusion, ponding water, wet insulation, and any deteriorated or damaged decking or other materials.
 
          C.Verify a minimum roof slope of 1/4 inch per foot and that roof drains are clean and in good working order.
 
          D.Prior to application of coating system, perform adhesion testing over substrates including previously coated and non-coated roof membranes.
          1.Follow industry approved method for field adhesion test methods. The minimum test patch size is to be one square foot.
          2.Allow roof coating to cure for a minimum of 72 hours prior to conducting peel test.
