Description
    CROSS-REFERENCE TO RELATED APPLICATION
  • [0001]
    This application claims the benefit of U.S. Provisional Application No. 60/446,277, filed Feb. 11, 2003, and U.S. Provisional Application No. 60/446,283, filed Feb. 11, 2003, the entire disclosure and contents of which are hereby incorporated by reference.
  • BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
  • [0002]
    The present invention relates generally to covering membranes for building structures.
  • [0003]
    Roofing membranes, are currently applied to roof decks by gluing the membrane to the substrate to be used as an insulation layer or underlayment of a roofing deck using either a water-based adhesive or an solvent-based adhesive that is applied to a roofing membrane at the site of the roofing installation. However, current methods of applying water-based adhesives or solvent-based adhesives “on-site” result in several problems. For example, the application of a roofing membrane with a water-based adhesive is time consuming and may only be applied in limited climatic conditions. A solvent-based adhesive requires care in determining the state of the adhesive to avoid over drying and attempting to adhere the roofing membrane while the adhesive is still wet. Also, solvent-based adhesives have volatile organic component (VOC) problems and may be very flammable, causing safety issues.
  • [0004]
    In addition, using a thermoplastic material for roofing membranes may require an expensive adhesive.
  • [0005]
    To join two roofing membranes that have been adhered to a roof substrate, usually hot air is used to weld seams where the two membranes overlap. The seam welds are usually formed using hot air welders that typically cost several thousands of dollars, making the installation of conventional roofing systems quite expensive, even for professional installers.
  • SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
  • [0006]
    The present invention overcomes the shortcomings of prior methods by providing covering membranes, such as roofing membranes, that may employ a relatively inexpensive adhesive to bond the roofing membrane to a building structure such as a roof substrate. In a preferred embodiment, the present invention provides a covering membrane that may be installed easily and quickly by a non-professional without special tools.
  • [0007]
    According to a first broad aspect of the present invention, there is provided a covering product comprising: a membrane comprising a thermoplastic; a fabric layer attached to a lower side of the membrane, the fabric layer being comprised of a fabric material; and an adhesive covering at least a portion of a lower side of the fabric layer for allowing the covering product to be adhered to a building structure.
  • [0008]
    According to second broad aspect of the invention, there is provided a method for mounting at least one membrane on a building structure comprising the following steps: (a) providing building structure; and (b) adhering a first membrane on the building structure by using a first adhesive coated on a first fabric layer bonded to the first membrane, the first fabric layer being comprised of a first fabric material.
  • [0009]

  • [0035]
    By employing a fabric layer bonded to a thermoplastic membrane, the covering product of the present invention is able to employ cheaper adhesives than would be necessary if the roofing membrane was adhered to a roof substrate directly. For example, several relatively cheap adhesives will not bond to a thermoplastic membrane. Other adhesives will react with some types of thermoplastic membranes thereby weakening the adhesives. Other adhesives may react with the monomeric plasticizer present in a PVC roofing membrane. Additionally, the fabric layer also allows lesser amounts of many types of adhesives to be used to adhere a membrane to a roof substrate due to the way that the surface of the fabric material interacts with the surface of the roof substrate. For example, when a roof substrate has a rough surface, a fleece or other type of fabric layer is able to more easily conform to the surface of the roof substrate than a thermoplastic membrane is able to conform to the surface of the roof substrate by itself. Furthermore, a fabric layer is able to provide protection to the membrane from any residual asphalt present on a roof substrate.

  • [0050]
    Although only a few ways of bonding an overlapping exposed section of a roofing membrane to an upper side of an overlapped roofing membrane are shown in the drawing figures and described above, other methods of joining two roofing membranes may be used. For example, instead of directly hot air welding an overlapping exposed section of one roofing membrane to an overlapped section of another roofing membrane, a hot melt adhesive may be applied to the underside of the overlapping section or the upper side of the overlapped section by spraying or knife coating methods. A hot melt adhesive layer may also be co-extruded with a roofing membrane in the region of the exposed section of the roofing membrane.
  • [0051]
    In other alternative embodiments, a transfer adhesives, an solvent based adhesive, or a water based adhesive may be applied to the underside of the overlapping section or the upper side of the overlapped section by traditional adhesive coating methods.
  • [0052]
    In another alternative embodiment, an overlapping section of one roofing membrane may be chemically welded to an overlapped section of a second roofing membrane using known techniques.
  • [0053]
    Although for convenience, the covering product of the present invention is only described above as being applied from above to a horizontal surface or from below to a curved surface, the covering product may also be used on slanted surfaces, such as slanted or peaked roofs, vertical surfaces, such as walls, chimneys, etc., curved surfaces such as culverts, or contoured surfaces, such as terra cotta roofs, or may be applied from below to horizontal and vertical surfaces such as roof overhangs or various curved or contoured surfaces.
  • [0054]
    The membrane of the present invention may be colored to be less noticeable when applied to a building structure.
  • [0055]
    Also, although only a few types of building structures are depicted as being covered in the embodiments of the present invention described above and illustrated in the drawings, the covering products of the present invention may be used on a variety of building structures.
  • [0056]
    Although the present invention has been fully described in conjunction with the preferred embodiment thereof with reference to the accompanying drawings, it is to be understood that various changes and modifications may be apparent to those skilled in the art. Such changes and modifications are to be understood as included within the scope of the present invention as defined by the appended claims, unless they depart therefrom.
