The Farmers Insurance Group Headquarters Building on Mercer Island was in desperate need of a roofing and waterproofing solution when a few months ago Tacoma Roofing and Waterproofing along with other commercial roofing companies were requested to assess and give a bid on the best low slope roofing solution for the building. We ended up recommending a value engineered less invasive low slope roofing solution than the other companies.
Rather than recommending a tear off and low slope reroof with a high dollar cost in the triple digits, we cut the cost by nearly 50 percent through the less invasive solution of applying GacoFlex S-20 Solvent-Free 100% Silicone Coating in gray on the roof. This choice saved hundreds of thousands of dollars for the company and is a roofing solution that is equally as protective as a reroof while adding additional energy efficiency. GacoFlex S-20 coating protects against permanent ponding water, ultraviolet light and severe weather. In addition to being a huge cost saver, this GacoFlex S-20 coated roof has a 20 year NDL warranty for years of guaranteed protection. This warranty is a NDL or no dollar limit warranty for the next twenty years issued by the manufacture, Gaco Western. This means that if any part of the waterproofing system fails in the next twenty years the manufacturer, Gaco will cover the repair or replacement costs of all materials, labor, and workmanship for this roof. This is the best, most protective warranty that a building and the owners can have. This project turned out to be great for everyone involved and we as well as the Farmers Insurance Group are very pleased with how this newly coated roof turned out for the Farmers Insurance Group Headquarters Building in Mercer Island, WA.
