Want More Info? Download our FREE  Metal Coatings  Guide  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. 

A roof maintenance system 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. Lihue Airport was very happy with the outcome. (Click here for more information on colored coatings)

The roof coating system provided the Lihue Airport with superior waterproofing, excellent reinforcement for seams, a leak-free and monolithic roof membrane, and most importantly - there was no business closure or disruptions!

E.M. Hundley Hardware Company's building was an aging metal roof system, over twenty years old, that was revealing inconsistent nuisance leaks to the interior sales floor. IRC specified a National Coatings' AcryShield Roof Restoration System consisting of a localized, reinforced, two-coat, 100% acrylic elastomeric custom color coating system with polyester fabric reinforcement at all metal panel end joints.

"National Coatings makes this approach feasible not only with excellent coating products but also with the wide range of accessory products from rust-inhibitive primers to individual butyl caps to encapsulate the existing panel fasterners."

- Project Manager, Mr. Rob Worthing
