“Roofers’ Choice” was determined by the product that received the most reader inquiries from the July/August 2014 issue’s “Materials & Gadgets” section.
The Garland Co. Inc. recently introduced its CPR System, a highly reflective, low-odor, synthetic liquid rubber membrane designed to waterproof and restore existing metal roof and wall panel systems, delaying costly roof replacement and improving the overall performance of the roof system.This lightweight, multi-layer waterproofing system will only add one-fifth of a pound per square foot to existing roof systems when completed, eliminating the time and cost associated with engineering a new roof system. The CPR System provides resistance to UV damage and deterioration caused by weathering by forming a rubber-like monolithic membrane over the entire surface. It is designed for application to properly prepared stainless steel, galvanized metals, Galvalume-coated metals, copper, aluminum and Kynar-coated metal roof systems.
According to Tom Stuewe, a Garland product manager: “The CPR System is the answer for building owners or facility managers who don’t have the budget for a replacement but need to extend the life of their roof system. The ease of application makes it ideal for in-house maintenance use, and its cold-process, low-odor formulation allows restoration projects to proceed with minimal disruptions to building operations and occupants.”
The CPR System is available in brush-or-trowel-grade versions and can be easily applied over sloped, contoured surfaces. When properly installed and maintained, this system can provide an additional 10 to 15 years of service life.
