Project Summary

The subject facility had been leaking for years. Multiple tenants, whose dry goods inventories had been damaged under the constant threat of moisture intrusion demanded that the owner replace the roof or they would not renew their leases. Owner’s budget demanded a light-weight solution that would fit a budget that was 30 – 40% less than the cost of other re-roof systems.
America West turned to Highland Commercial Roofing to apply our RainShield® seamless single-ply roofing system over their existing EPDM roof. The RainShield® system, reinforced with a super tough polyester mat, uses superior waterproofing grade asphalts and highly reflective elastomeric acrylic surfacing to create a seamless, waterproof, highly reflective membrane that provides a permanent, seamless, high-performance roofing system guaranteed not to leak… ever!
Existing roof included several miles of seams, all of which were eliminated by the installation of the RainShield® system, with the added benefit of forming a reflective Cool-Roof surface, which lowered America West’s utility bills considerably and qualified them for new tax benefits and rebates. The entire project was accomplished in just 20 working days, with no disruption of the tenants’ business activities.
