Endlap on a Fabric-Surfaced Underlayment

By | Polyglass, Uncategorized | No Comments

How to Install an Endlap on a Fabric-Surfaced Underlayment

Our goal is to help you with all your installation efforts. Watch our tips from Polyglass Roofing Experts. To help ensure a proper seal, underlayment products with a polyester fabric surface require a little extra attention during installation. In this step-by-step video, Polyglass technical expert Scott Hilliard demonstrates the proper way to install an endlap detail on one of our most popular steep slope underlayment products, PolyStick® TU Plus, using an approved mastic like PG 500 or PolyPlus® 50.

When to Use This Installation Method

This installation method should be used any time the self-adhering side of a steep slope underlayment comes in contact with the fabric surface — such as an endlap, hip, ridge, or valley. In addition to steep slope applications, this method is also approved for low slope underlayment products with fabric or granule surfaces. This installation method is not necessary for underlayment products with smooth surface films (such as Polystick® MTS Plus).

Velociflex Features & Benefits

A Velociflex roofing system is highlighted by two plies of modified bitumen membranes. The base sheet is “loose-laid” and mechanically attached in the side laps, which allows for fast and efficient installation.

Anatomy of a Velociflex System

  • Highly Reflective ‘Kool Roof’ Options: Velociflex systems using a Polyfresko G cap sheet comply with the 2016 Title 24 Part 6 Cool Roof Requirements and are ENERGY STAR® Certified.
  • Long-Term Performance: As a redundant, multi-ply, modified bitumen roof system reinforced with high strength polyester, Velociflex is great for new roofing, re-roofing, and recovery systems.
  • Tested & Certified: UL Classified for use in Class A roofs, as listed in the latest UL “Roofing Materials and Systems Directory”, and Florida Building Code approved.
  • Watertight System: A Velociflex system acts as a temporary roof once base sheet seams are heat welded.
  • Self Venting System: The “loose-laid” base sheet reduces the chances of blistering from substrate to membrane.
  • Economical: With a base sheet fastened in the seam only, you can reduce material and labor costs.

Calculate the Amount of Coating Needed for a Metal Roof

By | Florida Roofing, Polyglass | No Comments

Do You Need to Know How to Calculate the Amount of Coating Needed for a Metal Roof?

Polyglass has the answer! To calculate how much liquid roof coating is required for your project, you must multiple the roof’s surface area by either 1.2 or 1.3 — the number will depend on the specific roof profile.

Simple to understand, explain, support and believe in! Even better — all of these benefits are now available to our architect, engineer, consultant and contractor base with the quality of our products! Click the image above for an installation video.

The density of the fasteners installed on the side lap of the base ply along with the specific Polyglass product being used shapes the ultimate negative uplift capabilities. Along with the assembly design from the deck up, the cap ply bonding method is used to shape and determine the negative uplift capabilities. All methods of attaching the cap ply (APP & SBS) are available depending on the negative uplift desired. Torch, Asphalt, Cold Applied, and Self-Adhered.
