Project Description

The customer from the start was very limited on options. When you have an existing SPF & Silicone roof there are only two options. Tear-off down to the deck or restore with more SPF & Silicone.

This roof was in very poor condition and the options other then tearing off were extremely limited. The customer needed a new roof because They chose Tropical because we were able to provide them supportive solutions on how to properly restore there roof rather than tearing it off.

 

The main reason we chose silicone vs. acrylic on this project was because the existing roof was already silicone.

 

The customer received a Tropical 20 Year Labor & Material warranty.
