We typically recommend that you install fabric and coating around all roof penetrations (pipes, vents, skylights, etc.). We also recommend the same over the perimeter flashing to prevent wind uplift. Both of these steps should be done prior to the above installation steps for each type of roof.

White Lava is used to waterproof and protect existing and new roof substrates, including built-up, metal, modified bitumen capsheets, asphalt shingles, and wood roof decks. When installed per manufacturer’s instructions, it is a permanently renewable, totally waterproof, and highly heat reflective roof system. In the standard “White” color, the heat reflectivity is about 85%. This can be extended up to 93% reflectivity by adding an additional coat of our Iradium IR finish. Other colors are available if “White” is not desired, the lighter colors being the better reflectors.

White Lava Roof Coating can be applied by brush, roller, and airless spray equipment. Full material and material/labor warranties are available through licensed applicators that have been trained in the proper application of the system.

White Lava has the best reflectivity in the stock white color. However, a wide-range of color selections can be tinted into the coating. We have the assortment below to choose from or we can match the color of your choice. Light to medium tones can be tinted into White Lava. If darker colors are needed, our Tropical Roofshield can be tinted from Deep to Accent tones.
