Posted November 16, 2018 07:59:51 A new kind of roofing tile can be made by combining two existing tiles.
That way, it can be reused and reused again.
“There are a lot of roofers in the world that don’t really understand how to use tile roof tiles,” said Richard Sauter, president and CEO of Sauters Roofing.
“This is the best way to do that.”
Sauten is a board member of the Redmond Roofing Association, which works to make roofing more environmentally friendly and recyclable.
Sauterman is a graduate of the University of Michigan and has worked with roofing manufacturers to create a range of roof tiles that are both easy to use and durable.
They can be used on buildings and homes, with the addition of water and moisture-absorbing foam.
“I can’t tell you how many times we’ve had to use these tile roofers, because we’ve been able to reuse them,” Sautermans said.
“If we’re going to be able to make a new kind, it has to be recyclible and sustainable.”
To make it, he and his team of engineers had to figure out how to make it using materials that can be readily recycled.
In the process, they found the perfect combination of water-repellent foam and water-absorbers.
The foam absorbs water while the water-soluble elements absorb moisture.
They also used an advanced hydrophobic coating that blocks water-borne bacteria from damaging the tile.
This helps keep the tiles from cracking and also helps the materials last longer.
The tile is then covered with a waterproof polymer.
Sauts’ team also worked with an adhesive-free material called Teflon that is less likely to peel and break, which makes it more durable and environmentally friendly.
“You can apply it on the tiles, and the tiles will hold the water,” Sauts said.
The team also developed a foam coating that is very strong, which they can apply to any surface, not just the roof.
“It doesn’t require any additional chemicals or special equipment,” Sauners said.
With a few key elements, Sauternes team has made the tile a new way to make building roofs.
Sauner said that most roofing products today are made from a mixture of a plastic that can peel easily, a coating, a paint that can’t adhere to the roof surface, and a plastic cap.
With this new foam coating, the entire tile is a waterproof foam that doesn’t peel and is impervious to water.
It also can withstand high temperatures and heavy rain.
The new roofing material is a new roof tile, and it’s available in three different sizes, ranging from 1 foot to 5 feet in height.
Santsons team has tested the new tile in a number of tests, and he said that it was able to absorb up to 70 percent of water on a single tile.
Sarens team is now looking at the materials and building materials suppliers for possible use cases.
“Right now, we’re only looking at roofing materials,” Sanser said.
Saves money, reduces greenhouse gas emissions, reduces the need for new building materials and could even help reduce the cost of roof replacement in the future.
