    • Active manufacturing facility, complete tear off would have forced them to shut down production
    • Part of the building had very bad condensation issues due to the rising heat from the block kiln
    • Multiple leaks
    • Fasteners were rusting
  • Solution
    • Manufacturing was not paused at all
    • We pressure washed the entire roof, applied SPF foam over 18,000 feet of the area that had condensation problems.
    • Caulked all fasteners
    • Applied Conklin Benchmark basecoat and fabric at all the metal seams that did not get SPF
    • Applied Benchmark basecoat on new SPF
    • Applied Puma XL topcoat over the entire roof
  •  Benefits
    • Building is leak free
    • Increased R Value significantly
    • Puma XL white top coat decreases the roof temps in summer, lower cooling costs
    • 18 year non pro-rated warranty
    • Eliminated condensation issues by applying the foam. By insulating from the top down, this eliminated cold metal temps and hot air from the kiln colliding and causing condensation.
    • Facilities manager said he had leaks everywhere, after we were done, the building is totally dry.
