Specifying Fluid-Applied Coatings in Roofing Project Design (Print Course)

Choosing a liquid roofing product involves an understanding of the project and surface application needs. Application of a one or two coat liquid-applied roof membrane and a roof membrane with a weatherable topcoat can be considered in a roofing application.

As a building professional, it is worthwhile to consider the physical properties of liquid-applied roof coatings with and without reinforcement, as the physical properties can help determine what products are best suited to a specific application.

Affordable and Low-Maintenance Dark Windows

In the past, darker window frames were limited to painted wood, aluminum, aluminum-clad, or composite material frames due to the higher price point. Affordable, low-maintenance materials such as vinyl were limited to white and tan because of the colors’ low reflectivity and resistance to heat build-up from sun exposure. However, advances in vinyl pigments and new, thermal-resistant paints now provide architects with a wider array of dark colored window material options that are more affordable. This course will explore the basic aesthetics and trends of dark colors and provide a detailed discussion of choosing available dark window styles.
