New Mobile App Provides Aerial Roof Measurement Services

CoreLogic SkyMeasure AppCoreLogic launched its mobile application for SkyMeasure, a residential and commercial aerial roof measurement service. According to the company, the mobile application uses the same advanced geocoding technology as the desktop version, while also increasing access for roofing and insurance professionals to ParcelPoint, the CoreLogic proprietary property parcel database.

The mobile extension of SkyMeasure is designed to further enhance the ease and convenience of accessing roofing data on a real-time basis for those in the industry who spend a majority of their time in the field, especially since reports can be generated quickly and on-the-go, delivering results in as little as three hours. In addition to offering property measurement reports and status updates, the mobile application also provides historical property measurement data. The mobile application is free with in-app purchase options, and is available for both Apple and Android devices. 

“Combining the vast CoreLogic parcel-level data with our precise geocoding technology in this new SkyMeasure mobile app will greatly improve efficiency and convenience for industry professionals who are rarely sitting at a desk,” says Andrew Zickell, senior director of strategic business intelligence for CoreLogic. “With fingertip access, roofing and property measurement data, powered by the largest parcel database in the country, professionals will be able to produce more accurate and timely assessments.” 

According to the company, connecting parcel boundaries provided by ParcelPoint to aerial-based property measurements like SkyMeasure provides a more comprehensive view of all structures on a given parcel of land, resulting in more accurate assessments for roofing repair and replacement.CoreLogic Roof Report

Edge Metal Profile Reduces Material Costs

The EclipsEdge edge metal profile is not fastened to the horizontal surface of the roof, so there are no fasteners to seal with membrane flashing.

The EclipsEdge edge metal profile is not fastened to the horizontal surface of the roof, so there are no fasteners to seal with membrane flashing.

EclipsEdge edge metal profile from Mule-Hide Products Co. makes installing raised roof edges, gravel stops and full coping caps in single-ply roofing systems easier while also reducing material costs.

A two-part design, with a base and a top cover, makes EclipsEdge versatile and helps eliminate entire steps often required in traditional installations. The profile can be used in TPO, EPDM and PVC roofing systems and is not sensitive to membrane thickness.

EclipsEdge is not fastened to the horizontal surface of the roof, so there are no fasteners to seal with membrane flashing. There is no need to install a continuous clip when the face dimension exceeds 4 inches. The ends of the top cover are notched for overlapping, eliminating the need for joint covers.

Using the EclipsEdge provides the same aesthetics from the ground as traditional coping cap installations while using a fraction of the metal. It also eliminates the need to measure and fabricate copings, and then return to the jobsite to complete the job.

Fastener holes are pre-punched for installation. EclipsEdge can be installed using battery-operated equipment.

EclipsEdge complies with ANSI/SPRI ES-1, “Wind Design Standard for Edge Systems Used with Low Slope Roofing Systems.”

EclipsEdge is available in prefinished steel, aluminum, stainless steel and bonderized steel. The standard base is fabricated from 22-gauge GALVALUME Plus steel or .050-gauge aluminum. The cover is available in 24-gauge GALVALUME with mill or Kynar finish, 24-gauge stainless steel or .040-gauge aluminum in mil or Kynar finish. All covers measuring 9- to 13-inches are fabricated with aluminum.

Self-Adhering Modified Bitumen Membrane Offers High Reflectivity, Ease of Installation

Polyfresko G SAPolyfresko G SA is a highly reflective, granular surfaced APP modified bitumen roofing membrane meant for self-adhering applications. It is constructed with a high-performance polyester reinforcement providing exceptional tensile strength and dimensional stability. The product is manufactured by Polyglass U.S.A., Inc. using the company’s patented ADESO dual-compound self-adhesive technology. Polyfresko G SA features patented FASTLap for granule-free roll ends, as well as SEALLap, a factory-applied adhesive treatment at the membrane overlap for easy installation. Polyfresko G SA has a highly reflective granular surface and features patented CURE Technology-a thin film that is applied during the manufacturing process resulting in a roof surface resistant to granule loss and discoloration. Bright white, Polyfresko G SA membrane has shown after accelerated weathering that it maintains its reflectivity and white appearance. It is listed with the Cool Roof Ratings Council with an initial SRI of 96 and is California Title 24 compliant.

Shingle Starter Material Is Non-porous

SBS Shingle Starter is a SBS modified starter strip coated on both sides with SBS rubberized asphalt compound and surfaced with black ceramic granules.

SBS Shingle Starter is a SBS modified starter strip coated on both sides with SBS rubberized asphalt compound and surfaced with black ceramic granules.

MB Technology’s SBS Shingle Starter is a premium SBS modified starter strip completely coated on both sides with SBS rubberized asphalt compound and surfaced with black ceramic granules. The SBS rubberized membrane provides a flexible starter roll and, because it’s non-porous, it provides a watertight membrane by itself. The fiberglass-reinforced product is used for eave and rake starter material for composition roofing. It is used with minimum 3/8-inch head roofing nails, fastened 12 inches on center and at 4 to 6 inches above the edge of the roof or as required by the shingle manufacturer.

Insulation Alternative Receives Patent

Rich-E-Board provides an insulation alternative for the commercial roofing market.

Rich-E-Board provides an insulation alternative for the commercial roofing market.

Rich-E-Board is an insulated composite panel system created by R-50 Systems to provide an insulation alternative for the commercial roofing market. While conventional insulation requires a thickness of 15 inches to reach an R-value of 50, Rich-E-Board achieves the same result at just 1 1/2-inches thick. Rich-E-Board can be installed on most roof deck types and can support all conventional low-slope roof systems. The product recently received a patent for its proprietary Vacuum Insulated Panel—two polymeric foam cover boards that sandwich the panel—and the adhesive ribbons that bind the boards and panel together. Rich-E-Board is cut-to-spec and lightweight, as well as mold and fire resistant.

Reflective Granulated Cap Sheet Is for BUR Systems

The reflective granulated cap sheet may be used as a cap or flashing sheet in built-up roof systems.

The reflective granulated cap sheet may be used as a cap or flashing sheet in built-up roof systems.

Johns Manville has introduced a highly reflective granulated cap sheet called GlasKap CR G, which may be used as a cap or flashing sheet in built-up roof systems. The CR G membranes are surfaced with white reflective minerals and can be installed using standard granulated cap sheet installation methods. GlasKap CR G joins the larger offering of JM cool roof membrane solutions. These products are approved by FM Global and UL. They are also listed with CRRC and meet current Title 24 requirements. GlasKap CR G provides an additional option for customers who want a reflective cap sheet as part of a reliable BUR system.

Ensure Blister-free Installation of EPDM Bonding Adhesive

EPDM x-23 Low-VOC Bonding Adhesive boosts roofing crew productivity while helping ensure blister-free installations of EPDM roofing systems.

EPDM x-23 Low-VOC Bonding Adhesive boosts roofing crew productivity while helping ensure blister-free installations of EPDM roofing systems.

With its fast flash-off, easy application and extended open time, EPDM x-23 Low-VOC Bonding Adhesive from Mule-Hide Products Co. boosts roofing crew productivity while helping ensure blister-free installations of EPDM roofing systems. The adhesive quickly creates a strong bond between EPDM membranes and a variety of porous and non-porous substrates. It is easily applied using a 9-inch medium nap roller. An extended open time—the period after flash-off during which the adhesive film remains tacky—makes EPDM x-23 Low-VOC Bonding Adhesive a good choice when working with larger EPDM sheets. It also allows sheets to be left open longer, enabling more solvent to escape and further reducing the potential for blistering.
