Project Solution

Sikalastic® RoofPro, was chosen as the solution based upon its dynamic performance capabilities and the 20 year warranty that Liquid Plastics provided. Surface preparation consisted of removal of the oldcoatings from the balcony decks and sun decks. The prepared decks were then treated with the Sikalastic® RoofPro System. An embedment coat of Sikalastic® RoofPro was rolled onto the prepared surfaces followed by laying precut lengths of Sika® Reemat Premium reinforcing scrim into the wet coating and embedded. An intermediate coat of the Sikalastic® RoofPro was then rolled onto the embedment coat followed by an additional application of Sikalastic® RoofPro in a special color, sprinkled with 20/30 grit quartz and back rolled to encapsulate the quartz. The Sikalastic® RoofPro System provided an outstanding long term waterproofing solution for the customer.
