Stephanie Marie Chizik Editor-in-Chief W e just ran an online- only article for CoatingsPro about a rooftop coating project at an airport. Obviously, the waterproofi ng of the substrate was important to protect the buildings and inhabitants — both people and planes — from the environment. But at this location, the client also paid particular attention to the appear- ance of the fi nished system. It makes complete sense: Most, if not all, of the people going inside those airport buildings would also be looking down on them from up above. It's an interesting idea. As someone working in this sect of the coatings industry (or roofi ng indus- try, depending on how you look at it), you know the importance of the system's ability to do its job, and you also get to have a unique viewpoint of that work. But what if everyone saw your rooftop work at its best angle? Coatings and Beyond In this roof coating-specifi c supple- ment, we're sharing a high-level overview. It's a view from the top! As always, we start with the roundup. is includes all things that you may need to consider: roof coatings, access, safety, spray polyurethane foam (SPF), associa- tions, etc. It's that 1,000-foot (304.8 m) view of the topic. at starts on page 8. Another article in this annual supplement is written by the Spray Foam Coalition. at covers why SPF should be considered as a solution in areas where storms are prevalent. Hail storms can wreak havoc on certain systems. Head to pages 28–29 to fi nd that article. e third article in this supple- ment covers four steps to inspect a client's roof (pages 32–33). Be sure to do the research before starting in on the surface prep. Challenges at Heights Coating jobs are tricky enough. ere are access considerations, coordina- tion with other trades or the client, moisture, mixtures, and all kinds of parts and pieces. Add heights and working outside with the elements, as it is with coating projects up top, and you've got the recipe for quite the challenge. With this annual Roof Coatings supplement, whether you're new to the industry or a seasoned professional, hopefully you are able to glean a nugget or two of information to do your job more effi ciently, safely, and profi tably.
