    Default Roofing Identification

    Can anyone provide a way to identify this roofing system in a report? Its on a domed roof over a hotel. It appears to be a spray-on insulation, covered with a membrane (I can't tell if it's old, stiff rubber or felt), which appears to have been painted over with a roofing paint.

    I need to give it some kind of name in my report, but I'm not sure what.

    I'd defer to a dermatologist.

    Oh... you wanted a helpful answer?

    Looks like deteriorated Gacoflex or a similar elastomeric coating.

    Yah, that too. I think it dates back to the 60's. It's looks better than I did at that age, but it's still not pretty.

    Thanks Jerry. I knew it was a spray foam. I wsn't sure of the protective covering, or if the entire system had a particular name. The links help. Thanks again.
