GACO Waterproofing Professional Installation Walk-Through
If you’re looking to install GACO Waterproofing in Orange County California, Horizon Roofing has the experience to get it done right. Here’s a general walkthrough of how the process works:
We start by thoroughly cleaning the roof surface. Our professionals will use a putty knife or spatula to remove any dirt, debris, or loose material. Once the surface is clean, we allow it to dry completely before proceeding to the next step.
Using a measuring tape, we’ll measure and mark the desired width and length of GacoFlex product. We cut the material to size using scissors, taking care to create clean, straight cuts.
Using a caulk gun, we apply the GacoFlex to the surface, taking care to smooth it into place as we go. If necessary, we use a paintbrush or roller to help spread the material evenly. We allow the GacoFlex to dry completely before proceeding.
Once the GacoFlex is dry, our team applies a generous amount of GacoRoof to the surface, using a paintbrush or roller to spread it evenly. Each section needs to overlap by at least 2 inches. Finally, we allow the GacoRoof to dry completely before walking on or using the roof surface.
They are preferred over other systems because of longer life cycles, greater installation safety in high pedestrian traffic areas, cost-effectiveness, renewability, and ease of maintenance.
Every roofing system has three basic components- waterproofing, reinforcement, and reflectivity. The combined performance of these components dictates reliability and longevity for any roofing system.
Cool-Roof systems employ the highest performing product in each category to provide the longest lasting commercial roofing system available. Cool-Roofs are not subjected to the extreme punishment from daily thermo-cycling that other roofing systems are exposed to. In fact, a Cool-Roof cannot heat to a temperature more than 15% higher than the ambient temperature. Cool-Roof systems could be sustained well beyond the useful life of the building, and in many cases they have.
In the photo below, you see we have power washed the roof with eco-friendly detergent to get a clean surface for a proper bond.
The next photo shows we have prepped all seams with adhesive tape.
In the following photo, you will see a Cool-Roof we installed. You will notice a difference in coating color, just to be sure there are two heavy coats for a final product.
