leaking roof deck


The Challenge: 

This office building in New York City had water intrusion from the second floor roof deck that was seeping around the drains and penetrating into the floors below. They needed a proven solution for an immediate fix that would solve the leaking problem. The contractor was asked to provide an effective, long-lasting solution.

  • GREEN and Environmentally Advanced Solution

GLOBAL Encasement, Inc.’s Energy Star Compliant RoofCoat system was chosen - designed to waterproof and protect the roof and the building's occupants. GEI Fabric (polyester scrim) and Energy Star® RoofCoat were used to create a long lasting, renewable, durable and seamless membrane to prevent leaking, decay, and add weather/waterproofing. The roof is now solar/heat reflective, offering immediate and tremendous energy savings. The 20-year life cycle of this renewable system is sustainable and benefits the building owner with substantial reductions in exterior roof maintenance costs as well as the interior surfaces that were subjected to water damage.
