Gabbart Communications contacted Coryell Roofing to deal with a leaking metal roof with a high slope and limited access. As the picture shows, the building had originally functioned as a church, and among the other concerns, Gabbart wanted the building’s architectural style and aesthetics preserved. Furthermore, Gabbart had turned the upstairs into a wedding/reception venue, and they dealt with extreme heat in the summer and extreme cold in the winter; they needed the Coryell team to address these temperature issues in the reroofing process.
The team installed 3.5 inches of insulation to give an added 20 R-Value and create a more comfortable climate for the upstairs wedding/reception venue. They then applied a 50 mil Duro-Last membrane over the entire building, which contributed as well to indoor temperature control and stopped the leaks. Lastly, the team used a special Duro-Last edge product that gave a watertight seal while remaining above the parapet wall to preserve the natural beauty of the gray stone trim above the red brick wall. The Coryell team brought all they had to the table as they tackled reroofing this high-sloped roof with limited access.
