The Challenge:

Maintenance Personnel at Kadena, the largest air base in the world, were concerned that the Only Option for the Severely Deteriorated Roof of this Hangar Would Be Removal and Replacement of the Roof Itself. GLOBAL Encasement, Inc. Proposed a Second and extremely Cost Effective Option, Encasement of the Deteriorating Roof with RoofCoat.

A UL Listed, Class A Fire Rated RoofCoatEncasement System was Designed for the Roof. First the Roof was Pressure Washed and Cleaned Using PremeClean. All the Rust and Corrosion On the Roof was Halted Using R.I.P.™ Rust Inhibiting Primer. Small Holes Found On the Roof were Addressed Using GEI Seam Tape. A First Coat of RoofCoat was Applied Revealing Any Cracks in the Roof. These Cracks were Caulked Using 100% Acrylic Caulk.
