All roofs are exposed to severe and relentless forces: the sun’s heat and UV rays, thermal shock, building movement and ponded water all contribute to roof deterioration.

Every rainfall brings forth new leaks which can ruin inventory, stop production, destroy records, damage furnishings and create safety hazards.

WHEN SHOULD A MAINTENANCE SYSTEM BE APPLIED?

It is important to apply a maintenance system before the roofing membrane loses its flexibility, usually within 5 to 10 years depending on prevailing temperatures, sun exposure and roof drainage. A mineral-surfaced cap sheet roof should have a reflective coating applied immediately upon installation, or soon thereafter.

With planned maintenance and periodic renewal of the reflective coating on the maintenance systems, roof life can be extended indefinitely. This can more than DOUBLE the life of the roof.

HENRY ROOF MAINTENANCE SYSTEMS

  • PolyMulsion TM Systems combine odorless, solvent-free, spray-applied asphalt emulsion with one or two plies of strong and resilient polyester reinforcement.
  • Cold-Ap R Systems combine spray-applied asphalt roof cement with one or two plies of strong and resilient polyester reinforcement.
  • Monolithic TM Surfacing provides a thick, waterproof, seamless, spray-applied layer of asphalt emulsion reinforced with chopped fiberglass.
  • Henry maintenance systems are topped with an elastomeric or aluminum reflective coating or granules to reflect the sun’s UV rays and heat.
