This 141,000 square foot facility houses manufacturing offices, packaging and shipping from one location adjacent to the Salt Lake International Airport. Since this was a huge black flat roof, or “EPDM” roof, this was an ideal candidate for our seamless flat roofing system. Both the General and Facilities Management teams understood the value of this type of system when compared to others. In fact, their own estimates put their TOTAL costs as being FULLY RECOUPED by the air conditioning cost savings ALONE in just 8.5 years at today’s rates – THAT WILL INCLUDE a RATE REDUCTION in their “peak” electrical charges (common in such larger facilities).
This basically adds up to it being essentially a free roof, followed by a rich ROI! The simple fact is that electricity is going to be more and more expensive each and every year to come. Be prepared to pay these ever increasing utility costs -or learn to use new technologies by choosing ”cool roof” options, many of which do or will have additional tax advantages on top of the energy savings. Further, there will come a day when running your A/C units may be regulated and/or even curtailed because of limited peak supply or pollution concerns.
Furthermore, there really are bragging rights that come from using 777′s “cool roof” options, so advertise your forward thinking choice, letting your customers know that you ‘had the guts to go green’! On top of all these logical benefits, NOBODY can ignore or refute the reality that this seamless flat roof weighs in at nearly 80 mills thick! No other affordable roofing option even comes close. Finally, it’s infinitely repairable, sustainable – with tax advantages! – and the warranty renewal feature also is very attractive and unique.
’777′ Coatings Corporation is the largest elastomeric contractor in the inter-mountain west, with offices throughout this nation. Only representing the absolute best products, such as silicone roofing, higher quality TPO roofs and the premier “IB Systems” PVC roof.
Don’t be deceived by the “me too” claims! This is a difficult process and we have seen only failure when using unqualified and inexperienced contractors or the hundreds of small “liquid roofing” manufacturing companies with questionable size, background and ethics. ‘777′ Coatings had to wait for years, first proving ourselves and finally, being fully vetted to qualify us to represent the superior silicone roof covering systems, along with multiple chemistries and disciplines. Please keep this in mind when considering your options.
