Coryell takes on the challenge of a tricky-to-deal-with, high-slope roof and an owner’s hope to preserve architectural style . . . Gabbart Communications had a leaking metal roof with a high slope and limited access. Gabbart wanted the building’s architectural style and aesthetics preserved in the repair process. Furthermore, Gabbart had turned the upstairs into a wedding/reception venue. They dealt with extreme heat in the summer and extreme cold in the winter. They asked the Coryell team to help with 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. This 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. This preserved 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 and the need for aesthetic preservation!
