Oklahoma Corrections Facility Upgrades Entire Building Envelope

Corrections facilities face unique challenges when leaks occur. It's not easy or practical to relocate inmates and facilities. Operations are 24/7 and can't pause for a construction project. And security is paramount. These challenges were compounded for Sherriff Andy Simmons in Muskogee County, Oklahoma, who identified a pressing need to address leaks coming not just from the roof of the county's aging jail, but from the walls.

While the roof is the area of the building most vulnerable to water intrusion, a comprehensive approach to waterproofing covers the entire building envelope, including the walls. Garland Territory Managers Josh Rhodes and Steve Schaad, together with local contractor Crawford Roofing, undertook the ambitious project to create a leak free environment for Sherriff Simmons and his staff.

"It's not a's an actual fix."

Sherriff Andy Simmons knew that his facility, built in 1986, had significant issues with water intrusion that needed to be addressed. Garland Territory Managers Josh Rhodes and Steve Schaad created a plan that included a flood coat of USDA Bio-Preferred product Green-Lock Plus with a gravel surfacing; Garland's CPR Elastomeric coating to restore a section of metal roofing; and two coats of Tuff-Coat Elastomeric Damp Proofer on the walls in Cadet Grey specified by the County.
