Maintaining a Clean Roof During Installation (The Easy Way)
When it comes to presenting a new roof that looks new, there are three options:
- Careful Installation – An obvious answer that is often easier said than done. Best practices such as ensuring any remaining debris is removed from the roof and surrounding area and keeping boots/shoes clean can help prevent tracking any dirt onto the new membrane. But ensuring any other trades accessing the rooftop during installation follow the same protocol can be difficult and it can be nearly impossible to keep re-roof projects clean— especially those which involved tearing off a modified bitumen or BUR system.
- Pressure Washing – Following the project’s completion, returning with an approved cleaning solution, or following specified pressure washing procedures, can get that new roof looking new again. But this involves hoses, generators, managing wastewater, and costly time and labor.
- APEEL™ Protective Film – The newest option to maintaining a clean rooftop during installation, APEEL is simply a thin, protective film that is factory applied to the membrane. Available on TPO, PVC, and KEE HP, membrane with APEEL Protective Film is ordered, installed, and then the film is easily removed following installation, preserving the new roof’s cleanliness and reflectivity.
