B. RESPONSIBILITY FOR PERFORMANCE:
If the requirements of the construction documents negate or restrict the specified performance, or if a conflict or ambiguity exists in the construction documents, the contractor must request a clarification of any discrepancies before proceeding with the work.
C. PRE-INSTALLATION CONFERENCE:
Before starting the work specified herein, a pre-installation conference shall be held to discuss all aspects of the project. The following parties shall be in attendance:
1. Applicator's field representative or roofing foreman
2. Manufacturer's technical representative and affected adjacent trades
3. Owner's representative
D. MANUFACTURER'S TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE:
Provide a representative to attend the pre-installation conference, and review existing conditions and application procedures at project startup and periodically during the progression of the project.
All work including disposal of materials shall be in compliance with applicable local building codes.
Deliver clearly labeled, undamaged materials in the manufacturer's unopened containers.
B. TIMING AND COORDINATION:
Deliver materials to allow for minimum storage time at the project site. Coordinate delivery with the scheduled time of installation.
Store materials in a clean dry location, protected from weather and abuse.
A. EXAMINATION OF EXISTING CONDITIONS:
Contractor shall examine existing conditions affecting this work and shall report all unsatisfactory conditions to the proper authority and will not proceed until these conditions have been corrected. Commencing work implies acceptance of existing conditions as satisfactory to the outcome of this work.
All products used in the coating assembly must be furnished, specified, or approved in writing by Coatings International Roofing Systems. Products not supplied by Coatings International will not be covered by Coatings International Roofing Systems' warranty.
The manufacturer shall warrant the specified work from the date of completion for the length of the specified warranty against becoming unserviceable from either nonconforming materials or workmanship.
Defects shall include, but not be limited to, the following:
1. Peeling, cracking, blistering, alligatoring, or releasing from the substrate
2. Excessive chalking or dusting
3. Leakage of water into the building
Urethane coatings typically contain organic solvents and as such can be toxic and flammable. Work only in fully ventilated areas. Do not smoke when using these products or use near sparks, heat, or any open flames. Read and follow the Tough Stuff Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS). All waste materials including empty pails must be removed from the site by the applicator and taken to a landfill authorized to receive such materials.
Urethanes and primers will require proper mixing before application as follows:
|UR2100,UR2650||Four minutes (two part)|
|UP70||Four minutes (two part - five minute digest after mixing)|
|AC5000, AC5600, AC5900, UR1600, UR1700, UR1800||Two minute|
Remove dirt and foreign material detrimental to adhesion or application of roofing. Use CL404 cleaner diluted 20:1 with water. On heavy dirt or grease, apply full strength. Broom scrub the soap solution on the membrane to loosen oxidation and dirt and rinse with a minimum 2500 pi water blaster. If there are algae growing on the surface, the cleaning must include bleach in the washing of the substrate.
B. WET ROOFING REPLACEMENT:
Locate wet insulation and remove. Replace with new insulation to match the existing roof level. Leave room at the top for 1/2” OSB to face the repair. Space joints 1/8” to leave room for expansion. The width of the plywood will be related to wind uplift requirements.
After installing the plywood, finish as follows:
Prime with AC5600 at 1 gallon/100 square feet whenever surface to be coated does not have a base coat with liner.
A. SPLITS & CUTS:
All splits must be repaired with the polyester liner.
B. FISH MOUTHS:
All blisters must be cut open, dried out, and resealed.
Apply polyester reinforcement on areas of significant movement.
Round projections, machine legs, sign posts, guide wire straps, inside and outside corners, etc. can be flashed using the D200 powder additive mixed into the urethane to create a mastic mixture. The mastic mixture is also used to create cants and as a joint filler.
Mastic Mixing Ratios:
|USAGE||RATIO OF D200 TO URETHANE|
|Light brush / spray||30%|
A field liner is typically installed over the entire smooth roof.
Apply additional layers of the urethane at 1.5 galons/square with optional aggregate. Aggregate can be added into the mixture or broadcast into the wet material.
Place vents 5’ from outside walls every 50’ and at all inside and outside corners. Cut membrane and insulation to primary roof or to deck. Fill hole in insulation with crumbled insulation that was cut out. Place a triple bead of mastic (see Section 2.07) on the base of the vent and set vent centered over hole. Finish edge of vent with additional caulking and tool into place.
