A 20-year-old roof with water intrusion needed a fix with minimal disruption. A building shutdown for a roof replacement was out of the question for this medical device manufacturer. Garland's solution, was a fluid-applied restoration system that extended the roof life for another 20 years Abiomed

Protecting Critical Manufacturing Equipment from Leaks

For growing manufacturers, investments in equipment and staff can often outpace needed facility improvements, creating risk of damage in the event of a leak. See how this New England-based manufacturer of medical devices made the proactive decision to restore a section of roof that was protecting some of their most critical equipment inside.

High-Tech Manufacturer Restores Leak-Free Environment

Coorstek is a leading manufacturer of proprietary ceramics formulations used in a host of industries from semiconductors to aerospace. The facilities team at Coorstek’s Hillsborough, OR site was perplexed by recurrent leaks across their 70,000 square foot roof. While these leaks were at risk of impacting day to-day operations if left unchecked, the Coorstek team also could not take on the larger disruption of a full roof replacement. Garland territory managers Travis Cox and Brendan Hargrave looked for a potential solution that could tackle the “repeat offender” leaks, without embarking on a full-scale tearoff.

Garland Keeps Work Flowing For Leading Glass Packaging Manufacturer

Since most roof leaks begin slowly, it can be tempting to postpone repair or replacement out of concern that the solution will be even more disruptive than the problem. For that reason, the roof leaks at Saint-Gobain's glass container manufacturing facility in Madera, CA, were already severe when Garland representative, Richard Jones, was asked to inspect them. Contractor, Dan Mather of Fresno Roofing, who would eventually handle the necessary re-roofing project, describes the condition of the roof like this: "The mechanically attached EPDM with adhesive seams was leaking badly, with splits in the angles, pipe boots, and membrane. The leaks were over a production area where they make glass containers for wine, and they were disrupting the workflow below. When Garland invited us to bid on the project, our challenge was to put on a new roof without further interruption to the manufacturing work."

Lower Total Cost of Ownership

As a business, we've been around since 1895, so we know the pressure to contain costs, especially costs related to your facility. When you patrtner with Garland, you're shortening the value chain for your project, which means more of your budget goes toward a quality roofing installation. In return, you get a strong, watertight roofing system that can last as much as twice as long as a typical single-ply membrane.
