Project Type

Re-roof existing construction, eliminate leaks, repair extensive hail damage.

Conditions and Challenges: A surprise hail storm caused extensive damage to the roof, requiring an immediate solution, including plugging several new water intrusions into tenant spaces. Adding complexity to the project, the building is nearly 100% occupied, requiring crews to work around tenant needs and privacy.

Solution

After some initial consultation, The Muller Company tapped Highland Commercial Roofing for the job. “They took the time to explain their RainShield system,” says Muller Senior Property Manager Tiffany Laughlin, “which we hadn’t known anything about prior to the job.” The RainShield® Seamless Single-Ply System uses superior waterproofing grade asphalts and a highly reflective elastomeric acrylic surfacing, reinforced throughout with a super tough polyester mat, to provide a permanent, seamless, high-performance roofing system guaranteed not to leak for at least 15 years. What’s more, the bright white surface of the RainShield system provides “cool roof” benefits of greater reflectivity and lower heating and cooling loads.

Results

Although it had been in good repair prior to the storm, the existing built-up roof system had miles of seams that would eventually leak. RainShield provided The Muller Company with several solutions in one simple and inexpensive system. By eliminating seams, sealing all of the storm damage and providing a flexible cool-roof surface, RainShield gave the building a new lease on life. “The whole process was seamless,” explains Lauchlan, “the project was completed on schedule and the whole crew was very professional. We couldn’t have been more pleased with the outcome.”

Wrap-up

All roofing systems eventually reach the end of their useful service life and when they do, the effort, expense and hassle of continuing maintenance far exceeds the cost of roof replacement. Roof replacement can also be expensive, but the RainShield® Seamless Roofing System provides building owners a cost-effective alternative with over 70 years of proven success in the field. The RainShield system can cost less than half that of a BUR, TPO or PVC replacement and is available with an Unconditional Leak-Free Full Guarantee for up to 25 years.
