Special Project Circumstances: The height and location presented a unique challenge when loading the roof. We were able to get this done without a crane, ruining landscape, or disrupting traffic or hotel guests. In addition, we had to be able to work around the equipment on the roof.
Condition/Problem: The roof was failing due to age and weathering, causing multiple leaks throughout the field of the roof and along a wall to roof connection. Before install, we repaired these leaks and started our hotel roof restoration process.
Solution: Completely swept, removed debris, and power washed the entire roof to prepare the roof for the application of Gaco Western’s silicone system. Problem areas were identified and repaired, plus all penetrations and seams were reinforced. After given the proper amount of time to cure, we then applied our primer to the field membrane. Then the PGE-988 was applied to the entire field of the roof. Given the necessary amount of time to cure, we returned to apply secondary touch up at areas we thought were needed.
Result: A seamless, white reflective, Energy Star rated, silicon system that will last more than 20 years.
