Does your building require special installation requirements such as a clean room environment or a facility that is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and you are unsure how to solve your roof repair with those circumstances? Roof coating systems provide an excellent solution for these situations and others that are similar.
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.
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”.

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.

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!
