Everest Systems recently launched ECO-LEVEL, a fast cure and extremely durable self-leveling repair compound for the elimination of ponding areas on aged flat roofs. The compound was designed in response to common building and roof complications caused by long durations of ponding water and costly measures for mitigating the problem areas. ECO-LEVEL can be applied on multiple locations on a roof including areas around drains, skylight curbs, vents and HVAC curbs on a variety of substrates. 

Due to its unique formula, ECO-LEVEL is easy to use, dries quickly, has a self-leveling effect and can even repair existing roof blisters and defects. ECO-LEVEL is excellent for preventing water buildup behind air conditioners and vents on sloped metal roofs. ECO-LEVEL can be used on its own on recessed problem areas or in conjunction with EVERTHIX, a fibrous bulking agent from Everest used for additional reinforcement. Together the products make a great solution for the installation of roof crickets.

“The market has been waiting for a durable and self-leveling solution for roof ponds for a long time,” says John Linnell, Owner of Everest Systems. “We’ve spent years listening to our contractors and developing unique technologies that weren’t offered in the marketplace.”

The company advises to simply follow the preparation and application instructions stated on the technical data sheet. This involves a plan of fully mixing the product, pouring it in place within the 25-minute pot life, followed by allowing two hours of curing. The product must be topcoated after exceeding the cure time. The company recommends consulting an Everest technical representative to determine the appropriate topcoat product for the project.
