High-rise Energy Efficient Silicone Roof Restoration
A great alternative to roof replacement is an energy efficient silicone roof restoration. This project is an example of how successful a silicone restoration can be both cost effective and energy efficient. In addition, this project was selected as a winner in the 2016 Spotlight Trophy for the Advancement of Roofing Awards (S.T.A.R.) in the sustainability category.
S.T.A.R.—Spotlight Trophy for the Advancement of Roofing is an awards program designed by the Florida Roofing and Sheet Metal Contractors Association (FRSA) to recognize members’ unique and outstanding projects completed in the state of Florida.
Here’s what makes this project unique and award worthy:
December 2015, the Property Manager of BellaMare Condominium (a 31 story high-rise in Miami) met with us on numerous occasions to discuss their aging, flat roofs. Taking into consideration the amount of roof top units (RTU’s), other equipment (pipes, plumbing, water lines, chillers, etc), roof condition, economic value and environmental sustainability, we recommended an energy efficient silicone roof restoration as an alternative to an entire roof replacement.
An energy efficient silicone roof restoration can increase roof performance by reflecting sunlight, keeping the building cooler, and reducing air conditioning and energy costs—making it a sustainable, environmentally friendly solution. Additionally, a silicone roof restoration performs extremely well under ponding water conditions, adheres to most substrates which saves on the expense of roof removal and landfill waste and contamination. It is also perfect for properties with an excess of RTU’s and other equipment as it is monolithic and all the penetrations can be flashed with the same silicone and fabric to reinforce.
In essence, through an energy efficient silicone roof restoration the roof was restored and The Henry Company and Florida Quality Roofing gave BellaMare and additional 10 more useful, protective years, in which the buildings will also benefit from a cooler, more energy-efficient environment.
Additionally, we have recommended an annual maintenance plan to protect the investment of the new silicone roof and extra years of life.
An energy efficient silicone roof restoration is a great option, however, not all roofs or properties qualify, to learn more about your options contact us today at 305-306-7663.
I have had the pleasure of working with German Duarte, Owner of Florida Quality Roofing, since the fall of 2015. This relationship began with a new roof system on the 4th floor of a 31 story condominium building. We met bi-weekly with their staff and had weekly updates on our project. In addition to this project we also awarded this company with a 10- year silicone coating on our main roof. This project began in January 2016 and was completed by the end of February 2016. This company took the necessary steps to ensure the success and warranty of each project completed. It has been a pleasure to work with such a professional company and I would highly recommend this company to any business or condominium. Thanks to our relationship, we have been able to complete these projects without going over budget and all projects came in on time.
