Cleaning an Old Asphalt Flat RoofSteven Dickinson
New flat roofing systems today fall into three categories:
- New sheet roofing materials such as EPDM’s (rubbersheets), TPO’s (vinyl sheets).
- Liquid roofing systems
- Old Asphalts and torch on felts (Tar-based)
Stripping the old system can work out expensive not only to the property owner but to the enviroment as the materials will all go to land fill when dumped.
In the video I show you how we clean the top surface of an old asphalt roof and start the process of capping the old roof with one of the new liquid roofing systems the new SD650 roofing system from 3m.
