How do you know if a product you’re installing on a customer’s roof is really waterproof? Will you have to repair a failed installation or have you been dealing with these failed types of installations already? In this episode of “Field Tested”, SureCoat Innovator Jesse Martinson details the importance of perm rating, an essential waterproofing tool that’s not widely known.

Jesse has witnessed many failed projects relating to poor perm ratings. It’s time to listen in and boost your business by waterproofing the right way.
