Polyglass Roof Coatings: Tools & Equipment

Polyglass is a leader in manufacturing, roofing, and waterproofing materials, with a range of products and coatings that can extend a roof’s lifespan. When tackling the application of a roof coating, however, it’s not just the materials that have to be high-quality. It’s also vital to use the correct tools for the job.

Installing or re-roofing a building’s roof can include various processes, and not all of them will require the same tools. When installing any Polyglass roofing system, always use only high-quality tools. Using the proper tools will make the application process easier and faster.

Tools & equipment for applying roof coatings

When applying Polyglass roof coating products, a few essential tools are required:

  • Roofing hammer
  • High-quality pair of shears
  • Tape measure
  • Stiff broom
  • Solid plastic core roller covers
  • All-purpose brushes
  • Spraying tools

If properly cleaned, tools used for acrylic and other water-based products can be used the next day again.

Safety considerations

Regardless of what kind of Polyglass roofing system or roof coating you’re applying, there are a couple of safety considerations to keep in mind during installation:

  • Always observe Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) safe roofing practices and local building safety codes.
  • Safety gloves, eye protection, and a harness are required at all times during installation. Overalls are also recommended to be worn when applying Polyglass roof coatings.
  • When applying roof coatings, make sure that there is adequate ventilation.
