  1. Can you identify the low-sloped roofing product?

the sloped roofing product is a synthetic slate, you can tell by the bends in the caps. nice replica though. the low sloped one is unclear. Do you take these pics from a helicopter cerb?

Lamarite or ecostar

One ply mopped down? Too far, but it sure is wrinkly.

#2 is a peel and stick.

Are you serious? It looks like a hack temp job.

Aaron, you would be correct. The first photo is of Tamko’s Lamarite. Very good my man. Now, how about the second photo? If nobody gets it after awhile, I post a different photo of the same roof.

Can you zoom it in a little?

First on looks like slate floor tile to me.

Here’s the best I can do without making it too easy.

Ah, it looks like I’ve stumped the panel with photo #2. Any last guesses before I post the answer?

Here is one last look at the membrane in question:

Is this product supposed to be mopped down? Is it normally used in this application?

Where the F— is roofboss? :slight_smile:

Yes, it is supposed to be mopped down, though this particular crew didn’t do such a great job of installing the membrane. FWIW, I also do not like this particular membrane, and think it is a waste of money.

Well, I dunno. Looks like a Grace IWS to me, and that aint supposed to be mopped down.

Whatever it is, it doesn’t look watertight.

Also like the debris and crap laying about. Safety first :frowning:

It looks like either Grace 3000 or FR 40 butyl membrane. Does not look very good though.

Well, apparently I’ve stumped the panel, and roofboss isn’t even going to try and give ya’ any help Aaron. So, the answer to what kind of membrane was shown in photo #2:

It is a CTEM (Coal-Tar Elastomeric Membrane) roof membrane, as sold by Hyload. Personally, I wouldn’t ever recommend the product any more than I would a Garland, Hickman or Tremco roof. It just isn’t worth the extra money, and I don’t think you can justify the added expense. If you put the CTEM membrane over a 20-year asphalt BUR roof, you still have a 20-year roof system.

looks like someone cut epdm into 3’ strips and started to mop it…and mixed jack daniels into that 2 liter of coke!! and i assume if thats what they did then this would be the accurate result. :smiley:

Alright, cerb, roofboss aint answering…what is it? And why is it so open-looking?

What Tremco product were you referring to. I ask because I installed a standing seam galvanized steel roof by Tremco like 7 years ago and so far no problems. I never even heard of Tremco before that or since. Is there something wrong with the system I installed? Just curious, my ears perked up like a german shephard :smiley:

There is nothing wrong with Tremco. I like their sealants just fine, but like Garland and Hickman, their BURs are overpriced. Don’t know about their metal roofs.

I guess you missed the earlier post. It is a CTEM roof, and I wouldn’t use it on my dogs house FWIW. That is not to say it is a bad product, I just don’t have any use for it.
