Protection for your roof
As technology has improved, new systems to coat and protect roofs have advanced. These low-slope roof coatings bring three main advantages:
- They are seamless and so minimize any opportunity for failure and leaks at seams
- They are easy to repair and maintain with simple touch up of damaged areas if required
- They provide a great environmental advantage as they apply over the existing roofing and do not require full removal of existing coating.
The H.R.MacMillan Planetarium roof was remediated by Remdal using the Neogard direct-bond roof coating system, which is a moisture-cured urethane seamless roof system. This unique product uses the moisture in the air as a catalyst to cure and harden the coating. The finish is not only light reflective, but extremely durable and resistant to high winds, hail, and environment conditions meaning fewer repairs and leaks.
Remdal is a licensed installer of Neogard products, and we worked closely with the manufacturer for quality assurance during this project. Our work onsite began with extensive preparation and cleaning, followed by application of a bonding primer and intermediate coats. The final coating application was a white finish, which is Energy Star compliant, solar reflecting, and can provide energy savings.
