During a recent webinar, an attendee asked the following roof material question:
Most of our buildings are over 50 years old with many changes in plane on the surface. Most are BUR with mineral cap sheets. What would be a better system when replaced?
Our answer: When it comes to a replacement system we recommend that you first focus on the solution, as the purpose of the membrane is to protect that solution. There are many options afforded you when using a KEE membrane to solve the issues. Flexibility and versatility are needed to traverse multiple planes and I assume multiple deck types. You may also have circumstance where you can just cover the existing cap sheets. I would recommend that you enlist the services of one of our representatives for a free inspection and analysis.
But let’s go back a minute; understanding the technologies behind your roofing material and how those technologies withstand common threats to roof performance is crucial. Before you select a roofing material for your new roof, use this chart to understand the pros and cons of how each material measures up against threats for failure.
