Nobody likes a leaky roof, especially when it gets in the way of business operations. Learn how Gaco was able to help a plumbing company in Boynton Beach, Florida, fix their leaking roof with a roof foam and solvent-free silicone coating system.
The main roof was a 3:12 metal roof with leaks throughout the warehouse. The main issue throughout the building, however, was over the offices. This roof was a lower slope, 1:12 trapezoidal metal panel roof. With the harsh South Florida rain, the water would back up under the metal crimp and leak into the office space.
The Gaco Area Manager along with the local Gaco Licensed Applicator, Rodemeyer Roofing, worked together to develop the scope of work for the repairs. They decided GacoRoofFoam insulation and a GacoFlex silicone coating would work best. They also determined that GacoFlex S20, one of our solvent-free silicone roof coatings, would be sufficient for the main warehouse’s steep slope roof section, but would specify the foam at a 1.5” thickness in two passes prior to the coating on the office space.
South Florida sees a lot of rain. Using GacoRoofFoam and GacoFlex silicone as a waterproofing top-coat ensured that all gaps, cracks, and crevices would be supported and covered to prevent leaks. Rodemeyer Roofing also used additional GacoRoofFoam for supplemental waterproofing over the offices. GacoRoofFoam provides a wide range of benefits including:
Creating a monolithic roof system over the offices was essential to daily operations. The damage the water was causing in the office space was costing a lot of money to repair, not to mention disruption of daily operations.
The building is not only dry with zero leaks reported, but the company is enjoying the added R-Value of the foam, reflectivity of the silicone coating, along with UV protection from harsh Florida rays.
