I am sure that you have seen the 'caulk' around all the penetrations in
your roof begins to 'crack'. Most DIY (do-it-yourself) owners pick up a tube of
Silicone. Strangely enough this is the worst product you could use (explained
manufacturers use a free flowing rubberized product to set and seal all the
penetrations in the roof, air vent fans, plumbing vents, Sat dish, refrigerator
vent, etc. This is the same kind of material used in car windshields. Referred
to as PID or Polyisobutylene. It is great to work with when setting because is
flows and conforms. Unfortunately over time, the elements cause its surface to
shrink, appearing as a crack in the surface. If you dig down though, you will
see that the crack don't usually go to far into the material, but in another 10
years it will continue deeper because it is now exposed.
Some PID product manufacturers
make repair PID material in a standard caulk tube, and tell you to clean and
fill each crack, which to me doesn't really solve the problem for the
surrounding area. We use a heavy, fiber reinforced, moisture curing, liquid
product to be poured over the entire seam, filling any shrinkage cracks and
protecting the rest of the old surface.
Our complete roof re-seal starts
by cleaning the roof cap to side wall joint of existing sealant, Then we
pressure wash the entire roof. Next, all the existing PID rubber seams are
cleaned, first scrubbing with soap and water, then a wipe down with a solvent.
The roof to side wall seam is also wiped down. A bead of UV inhibited Adhesive
Sealant (not silicone) is run completely around the circumference of the roof at
the side wall. Then the fiber reinforced, moisture curing, liquid is poured over
each original PID rubber seal of all the roof penetrations. These materials at
NOT fast curing, and need to sit for at least 24 hours to 'skin' over, and will
continue to cure over time, well cured in 5-7 days. We love both these products
because they stick to just about anything, even if damp with water, with no
added cleaning or primer necessary.
