Belzona Facts:

Customer had spent much time and effort trying to make rolled roofing product work. Belzona 3111 was easier to apply on this irregular shape. The sealing of this planter allowed the highly visible area to maintain aesthetics with use of this planter and prevented water damage and slip hazards on the floor below, saving great expense. Planter box still in use over a decade later.
