Contractor Corey Wants You to Know Scuppers
This month's video shows a thorough way to fully detail around scuppers. Start by ensuring that the roof around the scupper is clean, then apply primer followed by base coat (using a brush or roller). Cut your fabric (preferably PERMAFAB) to the appropriate size and lay it in on all four sides, including inside the scupper. Smooth out any wrinkles and fully encapsulate the fabric with more base coat. Watch this month's video here and don't forget to subscribe to Corey's Channel!

This video covers the correct installation techniques, materials and tools used to successfully install IKO's ShieldBase specialty cover board for low slope roof applications. IKO ShieldBase 180 Specialty Cover Board is a composite of IKOThermTM CoverShieldTM polyiso insulation that is factory laminated to a 180-gram polyester reinforced SBS modified bitumen base sheet. The dual selvage self-adhering edges of the product allow easy joining of the base to the adjacent ShieldBase 180 boards. This allows for a quick application of the roofing system’s base layer. An excellent choice for recover applications, ShieldBase 180 reduces the dead weight load of the roofing system.

Wall flashings come in many types and sizes, and the AlphaGuard BIO fluid applied system can detail them all. Clean and prime the roof first, then apply the base coat evenly to the roof after the primer cures. Cut, then embed the fabric, preferably PERMAFAB, and smooth it out. In four to eight hours, you can apply another layer of base coat to fit the flashing into the roof field. Besides working well with Tremco Roofing’s AlphaGuard BIO NR fluid applied roofing system, this process is also effective with other fluid applied systems.
