This North Carolina fitness, sports, and wellness facility had a leaking metal roof that transmitted significant heat into the facility. Surface temperatures of the metal roof exceeded 160° during much of the year. This heat was being transmitted into the facility’s second floor cardio area, making it uncomfortable for clients working out on treadmills and elliptical machines. A related problem was the increased energy costs of cooling the facility, especially during peak demand hours.
The facility manager did his own research on how to address this issue. He learned of ALDOCOAT 400 Premium Acrylic, its roof restoration qualities and the cooling benefits of this highly reflective cool roof coating. Two coats of ALDOCOAT 400 were applied to the entire roof surface as a solution for the roof leaks and heat being transmitted into the facility.
Project outcomes are often best communicated by the client. Here is what Randy Green, general manager of Sportscenter, had to say.
“ALDOCOAT 400 has been an ideal solution for our building. It has sealed the leaks and helped us create a far more comfortable environment for our members. It has made it possible to reduce the temperature upstairs by 4 – 5 degrees without taxing our air conditioning systems.
In summary, the ALDOCOAT 400 Premium Acrylic application has resulted in immediate benefits in addition to extending the life of the R-panel roof by at least another 10 years. Green and Sportscenter expect to achieve significant ongoing savings in cooling costs, which could pay for the coating application within a few short years.
