Many businesses operate in environments that cannot be disrupted during installation. Installing one of our AcryPly or AcryShield roof coating systems not only provides a fully adhered, seamless, watertight membrane, but this system is spray applied meaning there is no nailing, drilling or screwing required. This ensures minimal noise disruption and no dust or debris to come loose inside the building. 

Case Studies

TriVascular Inc installed one of NCC’s roof coating systems to their clean room facility and they were extremely satisfied with the outcome. TriVascular is a medical device manufacturer that operates in a clean room environment. It would cost them up to $100K per day to shut down their operation and if any dust, debris or water enters the room, it would compromise the sterile environment requiring a four-day re-certify before operations could continue. This extremely sensitive situation was still able receive a new roof coating system without shutting down or compromising their facility.

Kaiser Permanente has been another company that requires absolutely no disruptions or closures during installation. Their medical centers are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and are unable to shut down for a week or so to install a new roof. The AcryShiled SPF Roofing System was successfully installed on their South Bay Medical Center without disruption operations or their patients. Kaiser was provided with a 20-year warranty to their newly insulated and sound dampening watertight roofing system. Click here to read the “Kaiser Permanente Case History”.

The Arden Fair Mall is another company that had a severely aged and leaking roof that required extensive roof repair but could not afford to disrupt operations or close during installation. This 255,000 square foot mall needed a new roof while avoiding a costly tear off. Retail operations could not experience loud noises, debris from over head or any distractions to occupants and mall patrons. They received the AcryPly Roof Restoration System, which provided an extremely durable, waterproof roofing system with substantial energy savings all while the mall conducted business as usual.

Why We Love Re Roofing (And You Should, Too!)

Re Roofing saves money

Adding a roof coating system to restore your existing aged or failing roof is 50-70% less costly than a tradition roof replacement. Roof coating systems do not require you to close your business during application, allowing you to conduct business as usual and create sales during the installation phases.

Re Roofing saves time

Installing a roof coating system is much less labor intensive as a roof tear-off. A roof tear-off requires tearing off the existing roof substrate, gathering and removing the old roof from the site to a landfill, and then following up with the new construction to build the new roof. These stages require business closures and ideal weather conditions. Installing a roof coating system is minimally disruptive - no seams welding, drilling or nailing is done during installation and no odors or harsh chemicals are used to apply the coating system. It is sprayed on in stages ranging from 3 steps to 5 steps depending on the roof coating system you choose. There are even products such as the AcryShield Quick Set base and top coats, that allow you to apply the coating system during times of light rain and heavy dew – minimizing certain weather related delays.

Re Roofing is Sustainable and Environmentally Friendly

Landfills in America are overly congested. We as a Nation are constantly trying to “recycle”, “reuse” and “go green”. Restoring your existing roof opposed to tearing it off, disposing of it and starting new, is an excellent way to recycling and reusing your current building materials. Many AcryShield roof coatings are LEED compliant for sustainable sites, energy and atmosphere, and materials and resources. AcryShield also has a line of roof coatings that product ZERO VOC’s or volatile organic content – check them out! Many roof coating systems are renewable down 10 to 15 years after the first roof coating system is installed. This allows you to avoid a roof replacement/tear-off indefinitely!

Re Roofing is the Obvious Choice

It is no wonder why we believe re roofing is the best choice for fixing your aged or leaking commercial roof. With money and time savings, as well as, environmental benefits, roof restoration systems are the most ideal. To find out if you can benefit from one of these systems, contact us today!

Flat Roof Repair – Options for Solving Your Roofing Issues

Posted by Nicole Gale on Thu, Aug 21, 2014 @ 09:00 AM

singleply_beforeWhen it comes to low slope or flat roof repair there are several options you can choose from ranging from patchwork to total roof replacement.  Roof coatings systems fall somewhere in the middle of those two spectrums for both cost and time but provide you with a fully restored, brand new, leak-free roof substrate that extends the lifespan of your roof while lowering roof maintenance costs.

Patchwork is an option that can provide a temporary solution to your leaking roof while you figure out what your long term plan is going to be. Although patchwork is a do-it-yourself method, it is recommended that you do your research and call different roofing contractors or manufacturers to learn about the long-term consequences of using different materials to patch your leaking areas. Several materials such as aluminum roof coating and silicone roof coating can be difficult to coat over in the future. This can prohibit a cost-effective roof coating system from being installed and potentially force you to do a costly and timely roof replacement instead.

singleply_afterRoof replacement is ideal when you have exhausted all other roofing options. Often times, you can avoid a roof replacement by installing a roof restoration system directly on top of your failing or leaking roof. For obvious reasons such as lengthy tear-off and installation phases, costly roof replacement stages, business closures and landfill waste and fee’s, roof replacement should be a last resort option. Always contact a roof coating professional to get a second opinion to determine if your roof can be restored – more than often, it can be!

Roof restoration systems are 50-70% cheaper than a roof replacement and provide a durable and superior option for flat roof repair. These systems allow your business to function as normal with minimal disruption during installation, they can be applied over roofs with one or two previous roofs installed – building codes prohibit the installation of a third roof to be installed on a building due to weight-bearing limitations; however, a roof coating system does not apply to this code and can allow you to restore your existing roof without a tear-off.  Roof restoration systems are spray applied providing a seamless, monolithic substrate that fully coats and covers your specific roof with all of its unique curves, pipes, equipment and other characteristics.

Additional benefits of roof restoration include:

  • Sustainable
  • Energy Savings
  • Fully Adhered
  • Reduced Roof Maintenance
  • Protection Against Harmful UV Rays
  • Greater Employee Comfort & Productivity
  • Environmentally Friendly
  • Seamless Waterproofing
  • Renewable
  • 10-15-20 Year Warranty Options Available
