Cuyahoga City Hall, located in Cuyahoga Falls, is one of Garland's latest projects to use our R-Mer Loc panels to fully restore its roof. This 38,000 square-foot project with 57 different roof facets was in dire need of restoration. Its original shingle roof was deteriorating as some shingles were cracking, blowing off, and melting to the concrete deck below. In this video, we run through how R-Mer Loc panels help restore this roof and give it a beautiful architecturally sound design.

57 Unique Roof Facets. One Unique Partnership.

Poor ventilation across the multi-faceted roof of the historic City Hall in Cuyahoga Falls, OH, meant that existing shingles were melting to the concrete deck below. To address this challenge, and also create a new modern aesthetic for the building, Garland Territory Manager Matt McGonigal recommended a switch to metal roofing.

Historic Courthouse Looks Forward and Minimizes Construction Waste

Botetourt County, Virginia, is nestled between the Blue Ridge and Appalachian Mountain ranges, near Roanoke. Early in our nation’s history, as settlement expanded westward, Botetourt County played a significant role, with its borders stretching into what is today West Virginia, Ohio, and Kentucky. While today the County sits entirely within Virginia, when it came time to address an aging roof on its main courthouse, Botetourt County took a much larger view, thinking about the entire planet.

To help steward their resources, Botetourt County entrusted Virginia-area Garland rep Brian Foley. Brian and the Garland team helped them find a solution that minimized waste and embodied the concept that the most sustainable roof is the one you don’t have to replace.

San Fransico City Hall Project Photos-465

"The People's Palace" Restores Its Roof - Without Stopping Events

San Francisco City Hall was constructed in 1915 as the seat of government for the City and County of San Francisco. Over the years, the building has transcended its original bureaucratic usage, becoming known as “The People’s Palace.” Today, San Francisco City Hall hosts hundreds of events each year, including weddings, galas, dinners, and all manner of celebrations.

So when it came time for a large scale roofing project, the facilities team at San Francisco City Hall knew they had more than the governmental employees to consider. Emerging from the Covid 19 pandemic, and all of the celebrations that had already been postponed, this project could not disrupt planned events, and needed to preserve and enhance the historic building’s famous aesthetics.

Sustainable solutions

Whether it's UV-reflective roof coatings proven to lower the temperature both inside the building and at street level, restoration systems that reduce landfill waste, membranes that include 8 tires' worth of recycled crumb rubber in a single batch, or smog-reducing granules that actually clean the air of harmful particulates, we're constantly pushing to see what's possible for your community and our planet.

Our sustainable innovation never comes at the expense of watertight performance, though, because "There's nothing greener than a roof that lasts.™"
