CH#256 - Carlsbad, CA Asphalt Shingle Roof

 

 

Carlsbad, CA Asphalt Shingle Roof

 

 

The Challenge:

The roof of this California home was badly leaking and already had three layers of asphalt shingles.  The worn and leaky roof condition impacted both the interior and exterior environment.  Heavy mold and mildew growth on the inside of the home was affecting the family's health; and the debris from the eroding asphalt shingles washed from the rooftop during rainstorms - both a source of and a pathway for zinc and lead contaminated runoff in urban environments.

 

                  

The above photos show the badly worn top roof layers and pine needles from overhanging branches that carpet the roof.

Below, GLOBAL Encasement, Inc.'s RoofCoat creates a new Green, Renewable, Sustainable, 20 Year surface.  No need for removal, disposal or replacing the three layers of shingles.

This new roof is sustainable to last at least 20 years and renewable so at the end of its useful service life, RoofCoat can be reapplied, cross- link bonding with itself giving another 20 years of service life.

Results:

GLOBAL Encasement, Inc.'s Energy Star Rated solar reflective RoofCoat was chosen as a logical and simple solution. The leaky roof could not be cleaned by standard pressure washing so the first step was to sweep the loose debris then lock down the remaining dust and tack the surface with Global Encasement, Inc.’s MPE™ Multi-Purpose Encapsulant. RoofCoat was then roller-applied to the recommended 20 year 32 mil Dry Film Thickness.

The good thing about the old roof was the R Value – the insulation factor – and that was combined with all the positive qualities of Global Encasement, Inc.’s coatings – resurfacing the old roof and creating a green, environmentally friendly, solar reflective, energy and money saving new roof.

This new roof is sustainable to last at least 20 years and renewable so at the end of its useful service life, RoofCoat can be reapplied, cross- link bonding with itself giving another 20 years of service life.
