  • Opportunity to reinforce trouble spots like drains, penetrations and waterways with polyester reinforcing fabric.
  • The system added many more years of service life to the existing roof membrane.

Learn More About Coating Over  Aged  Single-Plies "One of our best jobs for the year was on Westinghouse Drive in Fremont, CA where we restored an old TPO roof system. The building owner was convinced he needed to tear off the old TPO system and install a new one. National Coatings was able to provide us with case studies demonstrating that a restored TPO roof would result in a more robust and less expensive roof system. The AcryShield A502 had perfect adhesion to the failing TPO. We also avoided the exposure of a torn off roof on a 93,000 square foot building. Thanks so much to Tom Absher (NCC Sales Rep) and Missy DeLaTorre (NCC Customer Service and Business Development Manager)!" - Scott Siemer, President of Just Leaks, Inc.
