Early Water Resistance

Early Water Resistance

In July of 2002, we received a call of some urgency from a firm who handles maintenance for all Canadian military facilities. They were wanting to complete a small project of approximately 14,000 square feet by the end of the year. This required prompt attention as the window of acceptable weather conditions was rapidly closing.

Inland enlisted the aid of a local construction specialist in Newfoundland. He knew that Inland Rubber Coating products could be used in a wider range of temperatures than most coatings, which became very relevant to this project. The specialist coordinated all parties to complete the project smoothly and in a timely and satisfactory manner under cool and windy conditions.

This project was a pre-engineered building housing a base facility including a recreation hall and bowling alley. The roof is a through panel screw fastened system of standing seam configuration.

The factory painted finish, although somewhat abraded and scratched from snow and ice removal was in generally good condition. An area of concern and ongoing problems was a through-the-roof air handler of approximately four by six feet in size. A temporary “cricket” had been fashioned of foam insulation, OSB and vinyl tarps. This was removed and a permanent solution was installed.

All seams, fasteners and penetrations were addressed with Inland’s RC-2250 and RPM mesh. Two field coats of Inland’s RC-2000 grey completed the job.
