Roof Details and Waterproofing

Share

RESISTO LASTOBOND PRO HT-N and HT-S eave protection membranes are perfect solutions for high-performance and efficient waterproofing of eaves and roof details.

Tools Required

  • Membrane roller
  • Utility knife
  • Tape measure

Products required

  • LASTOBOND PRO HT-N or HT-S eave protection membranes
  • EXTERIOR PRIMER

Application Conditions

The minimum application temperatures of the RESISTO LASTOBOND PRO eave protection membrane are 40 °F (4.5 °C) for the HT-N version and 50 °F (10 °C) for the HT-S version. It is important to condition the membranes at a temperature of at least 50 °F (10 °C) before installation.

Substrate

The substrate must be clean, sound and in good condition. Make sure there are no nails or screws protruding from the surface.

  • Plywood
  • Oriented strand board (OSB), rough side up
  • Asphaltic panels (RESISTOBOARD)

Installation of LASTOBOND PRO HT-N or HT-S MEMBRANES

LASTOBOND PRO is installed as a reinforcement on the entire perimeter of the roof and in the most at-risk areas, such as ridges, valleys, hips, and upstands.

Apply the membrane on a clean, dry surface. With some substrates, the RESISTO PRIMER can be used to increase adhesion. Note: RESISTO H2O PRIMER is not compatible with RESISTOBOARD asphaltic panels.

Position the membrane parallel to the edge of the roof, leaving an excess of about 3 in (8 cm) on the edge where the gutter will be installed.

 

 

Remove the protective film on a 4 in (10 cm) surface.

Adhere the membrane, then remove the protective film.

Apply pressure on the membrane using a metal or hard rubber roller for stronger adhesion.

To apply a membrane over one metre in width, or to butt joint two pieces, an overlap of 3 in (8 cm) is required.

EDGE FLASHING installation

After installing the metal flashing on the edge, install a REDZONE membrane strip of at least 4 in (10 cm) in width by overlapping it on the flashing and membrane already installed at the perimeter.

Roof details

The use of the RESISTO PRIMER is required for this step.

 

Upstands (walls and chimneys)

Install a gusset (previously cut piece of membrane).

Cut the membrane to obtain a width of 8 in (20 cm).

Adhere the membrane: 4 in (10 cm) will be adhered to the roof surface and 4 in (10 cm) to the upstand. Always start from the base of the upstand and end at the top.

Follow the illustrations for the next steps.

Circular outlets

Attach the counterflashing and its metal deck to the roof surface.

Install a LASTOBOND PRO membrane piece by cutting a circular opening in the middle of it. The membrane must exceed the diameter of the outlet by 2 in (5 cm). For a steel decking, the membrane should exceed 4 in (10 cm).

If it is not possible to install the membrane piece this way, proceed using two pieces that will overlap 3 in (8 cm).
