Special Project Circumstances: After the Silicone Roof Restoration System was installed, more than 1,000 solar panels were installed on the roof. Our customer understood that maintaining a roof with all the equipment on it would be very tough in the future, so they needed a roofing system that is low maintenance and going to last a long time.
Condition/Problem: The EPDM roof was failing due to age and weathering, causing multiple leaks throughout the roof field and along a wall to roof connection. Before installation of the Silicone Roof Restoration System, SBS repaired the leaks and started our process to restore the roof.
Solution: Completely sweep, remove debris, and power wash the entire roof to prepare the roof for the application of the Gaco Silicone Roof Restoration System. Identified problem areas as well as 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 Gaco S2000 was applied to the entire roof field. Given the necessary amount of time to cure, we returned to apply secondary touch up at areas we felt were needed.
Result: A seamless, white reflective, Energy Star rated, silicone system that will last more than 20 years.
