About Us

Commercial Construction Services:

We do everything from concrete foundations to construction of commercial buildings, including roofing, masonry work, and metal buildings. This includes new construction, restoration, and major & minor repairs.

Commercial Roofing Maintenance:

We work with several manufacturers of white 100% acrylic elastomeric, ceramic, urethane, epoxy, polyurethane, silicone based, and aluminum roof coatings for metal, single-ply membranes, and built up roof systems. Weapply these systems all over the U.S.

If your roof is no longer suitable for coating, we can add a membrane to your existing roof or tear off and replace it with your choice of membrane, metal, or built up roof systems. Whatever we do, our goal is to provide you with the best solution for your building and your wallet! 

Generally, coatings will offer the most economical advantage. Why?

  • Zero waste to landfills

Roof tear-offs produce 5% of all solid waste in landfills. When finished coating, all of our drums are recycled/reused. Therefore, there is little or no waste.

  • Average typical roof service life is about 12 years. Warranties are normally pro-rated to give you virtually nothing back after 10 years. Coating warranties protect you for the full term, usually 10 to 12 years. The manufacturer of your current roof won't usually mind the roof being coated because it will only extend the life of the roof well beyond the original manufacturers warranty. It literally stops the aging process of the roof. The coating acts as a sacrificial barrier, letting the weather work on the coating rather than your precious roof.

Each of your current roofs can be restored to new or better than new condition. These roofs, if coated when the roof is still considered a good substrate can be re-coated every 10 years to maintain the current roof indefinitely.

  • Helps reduce the Heat Island effect and improves our air quality

Exhaust emissions = smog; Temp. increase = smog increase; Temp decrease = smog decrease.
At 70 degrees ambient temp, each 1 degree increase = 3% more smog. See http://www.coolcommunities.org/ a website chartered to help Atlanta reduce the heat island effect.

Also, most air conditioners are on the roof. If your roof is hot, your fresh air inlet pulls in hot air, making the compressors work harder, costing you more money in electricity & air conditioner maintenance costs. Turning your roof from bare metal or black to white can save you up to 30% on your air conditioning bills.

  • No interruptions in production below the roof. This is extremely important!

All of the coatings that we use will stop the aging process and stabilize the roof by greatly reducing the roof temperature, reducing expansion and contraction that puts stress on the seams and the roof in general.  Stress is what causes most roofs to begin to leak and fail.  We can extend the life of your roof by up to 15 years with each coating.  In many cases, you can coat your roof up to 5 times for what it will cost to replace your roof once! 

We can reduce the roof temperature by as much as 80 degrees. This will significantly reduce the inside temperature of the building, making it much cooler for your employees. We have seen the interior temperature drop by as much as 20F! 

If your facility is air conditioned, we may be able to save you up to 20-30% on your air conditioning bills.  The cost of air conditioning is usually the 2nd largest expense, next to labor.  In many cases, the savings alone will pay for the coating in 1 to 2 years, and for years to come the savings will show directly on the bottom line.
