eichler_house_case_study.pdf

An innovative approach to pre-fabbed roofing incorporating panels of ISO insulation laminated to USG’s gypsum based roof cover board, Securock, with WetSuit One-Part. The panels were sprayed with a 60 mil WetSuit membrane, stacked on pallets, and dropped shipped to the job site. The panels were simply laid out over the roof deck, butted up, cut where needed, and mechanically fastened with a dab of sealant under the fastener plate. The seams were then stripped in with our reinforcement fabric, Invisilink, and saturated with WetSuit One-Part. Finally, the whole roof received a coat of 20 dry mil high quality acrylic elastomeric. Unfortunately, pictures of the last two steps were not provided.

Green Bay Packaging’s 20 year old EPDM roof system was falling apart at the seams, literally. The glued seams were opening up and allowing water to enter the system. They were also experiencing punctures in the EPDM in heavy traffic areas. GBP was faced with tearing off and replacing the EPDM roof system that would cost them approximately $918,000. WetSuit provided them an option to recover the worst EPDM areas with a fluid applied, monolithic 60 mil rubber membrane, which has superior properties when compared to installing a new EPDM, TPO or PVC membrane.

pdf Roofing Case Study: Lincoln Mercury Dealership Popular

The dealership’s panelled metal roof had been leaking for decades and a tear off, hot applied, or VOC fluid system were not options due to the inhabited office space below. Years of foot traffic had left many dents in the metal ribs that had rusted and cracked open allowing water direct access to the interior. WetSuit’s monolithic membrane provided a continual fully adhered seal to the metal while the membrane’s instant high build allowed the cracked dents, open seams, and fastener voids to be custom sprayed thicker. Top coated with a sustainable white acrylic, the roof became extremely energy efficient by reflecting the hot Texas sun and high emissivity of the metal.

pdf Roofing Case Study: Navy Air Station, Lemoore Popular

The hospital roof at the Navy Air Force base in Lemoore, California was approaching the end of its service life. Forward thinking architects on base took a proactive approach in line with J.F.K’s philosophy that “the time to fix your roof, is when it is not leaking,” and restored the roof with the WetSuit system before leaking ever began. The 80 mil WetSuit base provided dynamic waterproofing while the 40 mil white elastomeric, twice the industry standard for thickness, ensures years of reflectivity and energy savings in one of California’s hottest climates. Because of the occupants in the hospital, the water based, no VOC system, did not produce odors or safety concerns, and the install moved quietly along. We thank NAS Lemoore for specifying the WetSuit system!

The greatly anticipated Salmon Creek Environmental Center had a goal to become the first California public K-8 school to obtain a LEED Gold Certification. The water based, no VOC Wetsuit membrane was chosen to aid in the establishment of LEED points, but also to meet the demands inherent in the architecturally free flowing roof design. 100 dry mils of WetSuit was specified as well as 40 dry mils of the high quality white elastomeric, Eco-Therm, as a topcoat. The fluid applied membrane was installed directly to the plywood surface. Spray foam insulation was applied between the joists in the ceiling. The flat roof section will be a green roof planted with cuttings started by the students.
