Roofing Panels – Many of our Green Roofers will be happy to know that Porous Pave now offers roofing panels, sold in squares. The benefits to these panels are ease of removal in the off chance that there is a leak somewhere on the roof. Instead of having to cut into a poured application Porous Pave, Green Roof installers only need to lift the panels to check for issues below.
Use electrical pipes instead of wood boards on screed applications. Electrical piping cleans easier and has a more exact measurement. Wood creates splinters, absorbs the vegetable oil used to prevent sticking and also may need to be cut to be an exact measurement.
Use GREEN Palmolive and water to coat your hand and bull floats. We are finding that the chemicals in Green Palmolive (Original) have the same non-stick properties of vegetable oil. Furthermore, the water mixed with the soap encourages Porous Pave to cure properly and quickly. You get a faster completion period and less sloughing over time. It is important to still use vegetable oil to coat all other tools, as you do not want to introduce H2O moisture into the mixing process.
