Island Style Roof System
The Island Style Roof was developed in an effort to adapt the outstanding and durable performance of commercial roof membranes for use on sloped roofs. The solution was to create a profile that would be aesthetically pleasing and still be appropriate for applying the membrane. In addition, the design needed to be resistant to ever increasing tropical storms and hurricanes. They partnered with National Gypsum® to include their PermaBase® roof cover boards in creating a pleasing profile.
By overlapping courses of PermaBase a stepped pattern is created that bears a resemblance to a common roof design that originated in Bermuda, thus the name Island Style Roof. The fluid applied roof membranes are easily installed directly to the stepped boards. The seamless and durable membrane ensures leak-free performance while maintaining an attractive appearance.
The entire system is designed to withstand the most severe hurricane force winds and wind driven rain allowing the Island Style Roof to be used in the most vulnerable environments along the coasts and in island settings.
Features & Benefits
The Island Style Roof has been designed and tested to perform in hurricane conditions. The roof is approved for use in the High Velocity Hurricane Zone (HVHZ) in accordance with the Florida Building Code, 6th Edition (2017). The testing was able to create an uplift pressure of 300 psf (pounds per square foot) before the structural framing started to break apart. This uplift pressure varies with different building structures but equates to wind speeds of over 240 MPH. A properly installed Island Style Roof should be able to withstand a Category 5 hurricane which produces sustained wind speeds of greater than 155 MPH.
PermaBase lightweight cementitious roof boards provide a sound surface for the Acrylabs membrane. The boards are moisture and rot resistant and provide great impact strength. PermaBase also contributes to the superior fire resistance of the Island Style Roof assembly. The Island Style Roof has been tested and approved with a Class A Fire Rating.
The liquid applied roof systems are applied in multiple coats with fabric reinforcement embedded between coats. Applied as a liquid, the roof membrane conforms perfectly to all shapes and geometries including the stepped profile of the Island Style Roof. The resulting membrane is totally seamless and prevents water and wind penetration under most any conditions. The roof membrane cannot blow off or lose pieces like a shingle roof. The fully adhered membrane cannot be peeled back in high winds like a metal or single ply roof. The same components of the liquid applied membrane used across the field of the roof are used to create tight, fully adhered flashings at all roof penetrations. There are no clamps, boots or other flashing accessories that can be damaged or admit water during severe weather.
Most building materials break down in the presence of sunlight. UV exposure will degrade the best tiles, shingles or other asphaltic roofing. The membrane covering the Island Style Roof system is a 100% acrylic formulation and is UV resistant. Even over many years, the surface shows little or no effects from UV exposure.
The Island Style Roof is so stable that it can be renewed every ten or fifteen years with a single maintenance coat. This means that the roof is sustainable and there should be no need to tear it off or replace it for the life of the building. Some building owners even take the opportunity to change the color of the finish when recoating.
