Rust Is No Match for Inland Coatings & the City of Richmond, BC
Scope of Project
17,238 sq.ft. metal roof
Severe rusting issues with multiple leaks and pinholes
Penetrations: 3 stacks and 7 vents
Goals for Completion
Full roof restoration utilizing Inland Coatings products and a 10-year system warranty provided.
The City of Richmond, British Columbia, had a significant dilemma as a 20-plus year metal building had developed numerous problems, including loose seams/fasteners, leaks, pinholes, and a high degree of rust. One option presented was to do a complete tear-off and disposal, which is disruptive and was going to be out of their budget. As the roof itself was structurally sound, an Inland Coatings sales representative, teamed up with a local contractor and formulated a plan of attack. The result was a 10-Year Warranted System that provided a substantial cost saving (under budget) to the City of Richmond.
With the scope of work provided, Cascade went to work in an easy 4-step process:
Power wash roof and utilize wire brushing, as needed, to bring to tight rust finish. Before proceeding, the roof was free of dirt, debris and completely dry.
Prep the surface area including sealing fasteners, addressing horizontal & vertical seams along with penetrations.
Optimized Series Coating System: Once prep was completed, Inland’s RC2013-M corrosion resistant metal base-coat and RC2014-T Bright White top-coat were applied at 1.25 gallons per 100 square feet, respectively.
Clean up with mineral spirits
