Re: gaco verses elastomeric


i was told by the rep that i could roll it on or use a notched trowel. i know rolling it on would go a lot faster and be able to control it at the edges of the roof better.

Re: gaco verses elastomeric


The sprayer is good for medium & big jobs for 100 and more i wouldn't get buckets , 50 galons drums that's where you save money on material and labor doing it . It's like single ply robots there expensive. But if you get good jobs it's worthy. Www.roofmaster.com have them for sale .
