Case History of Lihue Airport in Kauai, HI
Size: approximately 146,875 SF
System: National Coatings AcryShield® Restoration System
Lihue Airport, located on the Island of Kauai, had an aged metal roof with several leaks. One of their biggest challenges was they needed a roof system that would restore their roof while allowing them to continue normal, day-to-day operations. This airport is the primary airport on Kauai and the main gateway for visitors, so there could be no business disruptions or closures during the application process. The airport is open 24/7 and is occupied throughout the day and evening.
The AcryShield Restoration System (ARM) was selected as the ideal building material to get the job done with the least amount of disruptions. They chose to change the color of the existing roofs to a custom color, deep jungle green, to match the vibrant and beautiful green scenery surrounding the airport. National Coatings color specialists are able to color match the roof coatings to meet the specific needs of their clients; in this case, Lihue Airport was very happy with the outcome.
