Ram ColdTarr® Plus can often be a great solution for roof maintenance and restoration applications. It is also occasionally used in special reroofing applications that require the unique properties and benefits offered by this product.
Ram ColdTar Plus is suitable for use on all types of bitumen roofs, coal tar pitch, asphalt, SBS and APP modified bitumens. Ram ColdTar Plus is not recommended for use on urethane foam or single ply roofs such as EPDM, PVC, and TPO.
Roof Restoration - A Ram ColdTar Plus roof restoration captures the remaining value in existing membrane systems, mends deficiencies and fuses a new waterproofing membrane and surfacing with the existing membrane. The cost can be as much as 60% less than typical reroofing procedures.
Considered as a maintenance procedure rather than a new roof system, this process is less restricted by most building codes and may avoid the tax burden of a 30 year depreciation schedule when considered as a maintenance procedure, written off in the year of the expense. Check with your tax advisor.
Ram ColdTar Plus roof restoration projects are eligible for a Barrett water-tightness warranty for up to 10 years.
Roof Maintenance - Ram ColdTar is commonly used for a variety of maintenance procedures for increased longevity of existing roofs such as
- Recoating weathered roof areas
- Re-attach gravel surfacing
- Re-granulate worn granular surfacing
- Recoat worn areas due to water ponding
- Seal hard to identify roof leaks
- A repair compound for membrane roof curb renovations
Reroofing Applications - Used in a 3 or 4 ply configuration, a Ram ColdTar Plus built-up roofing membrane can be installed over most popular deck and insulation systems. When installed in accordance with Barrett specifications, a Ram ColdTar Plus membrane system can be warranted for up to 20 years.
