Fill in any deep cavities, taper off the bevel both sides from the central hump on the house roof, and rough areas around roof edge perimeter and form new covings at the base of the square concrete plinths.
Apply Easygum bitumen/rubber compound by squeege and/or broom, at the rate of 0.83m2 per litre (approx average 2mm thick) to a smooth a finish as possible and then allow to dry 48 hours.
Install Easygum lamination, Base coat at 2.5m2/litre, followed by embedding 300gram/m2 chopped strand fibreglass into base coat, followed by another coat of Easygum at 2.5m2/litre. Allow to dry 24 hours.
Apply two further coats of Easygum at increasing coverage rate.
Finish with 2 coats of Jaydex Enviroflect Aluminium for UV protective finish.
