Elastomeric coating systems seem to work best in drier, less humid climate zones. They also work well when urethane foam is sprayed on the interior of our 3 /4″ exterior plywood and elastomeric is used on the exterior of the plywood.
ROOF MATE is a water-based, high solids elastomeric coating utilizing the latest advances in acrylic technology. Premium quality acrylic resins are combined with reinforcing laminar pigments, an effective biocide package and non-migrating fire retardants, resulting in superior durability, weatherproofing, ultraviolet resistance, algae/mildew resistance and fire retardancy.
ROOF MATE is a highly reflective, permanently flexible “breathing” membrane, allowing moisture vapor from the substrate or building interior to escape while remaining impervious to mass water penetration from the exterior.
Roof Mate has great performance qualities, with a 226 per cent elongation rate (even at freezing temperatures) and an ultimate tensile breaking strength of 224 pounds per square inch. This material does not crack – it stretches.
Our dome joint (between the exterior panels) does not move in an earthquake or if the foundation shifts. Our dome is not a loose, flexing structure. Our wood domes do “absorb” movement. Roof Mate easily handles the minor movement from temperature extremes.
Roof Mate applied to our 3/4″ plywood exterior dome panel can take hail impact and debris scrapes. Severe cutting of the skin can be easily repaired by recoating.
These rubberized roof coatings are applied as a liquid with a thickness of 25 to 45 mils. They can be applied with a roller or spray equipment. Our ventilated dome shell and touch-sanded plywood surface are the perfect match to these coatings systems. Colors can be custom mixed to match anything. If you choose this roofing system, we can provide “flush” mounted custom skylights (extra charge) and create a very unique dome look.
Material costs vary from $200/sq to $250/sq. ($2.00 – $2.50 per square foot. $21.50 – $27.00 per square meter) for 45 mil. thick coating. Thinner coatings can be applied at less initial cost but would require top coat recoating sooner.

United Cleaning Concentrate
United Cleaning Concentrate is a highly effective cleaning agent that, when combined with water, penetrates the existing coating or substrate and allows contaminants to be flushed from the surface. UCC performs at a very high level, with cleaning and pore-penetrating capabilities far exceeding most products available today.
Because United Cleaning Concentrate is 100% biodegradable and non-toxic, it can be washed off the surface without any harmful effects to the environment or ground vegetation.
- For optimum results, United Cleaning Concentrate should be diluted at a 1 to 10 ratio with water. Accordingly, 5-gallons (19 liters) should be mixed with 50-gallons (189 liters) of water in a 55-gallon (209 liter) drum.
- Apply the diluted cleaning solution to the substrate under low pressure at the rate of 150 to 200 sq. ft. per gallon (3.7 to 4.9 m2/l). Allow the solution to stand for a minimum of 15 minutes.
- For best results, rinse the surface with water under high pressure, utilizing either conventional spray or pressure washing equipment.
|1 gallon pail||$65 / pail|
|5 gallon pail $60 / Gal.||$300 / pail|
No extra shipping charges if shipped in semi-truck with dome order. Western United States areas may be shipped direct from the manufacturer at little or no additional costs. Because these materials should not freeze, some shipping limitations apply in Winter.
