Temporary Shrink Wrap Roofing After Hail

Project Overview

Summary provided by video transcript.

Hi, I’m Sam Smith and I’m with RestoreMasters. I’m here in Houston. We’re installing a marine shrink wrap on the warehouse over here near Railwood Park. May 9th, 2019, a hailstorm hit Houston. It was one of the largest to ever hit Houston. We came over here to this warehouse and while we were here in Houston, we stopped by this warehouse here in Railwood Park to see if the owner would like a free inspection that we provide. He agreed. So the first step of that inspection is to fly the drone over to get a good aerial shot of the property. And then we actually got on the roof to see if there were any holes or any kind of roofing material that was affected by the hailstones on May 9th. So we got on the roof here at this warehouse and we took a look at the roofing material and discovered there were in fact really large holes from the hailstones. The hail that hit here was between three and five inches depending on the stone you measured.

And it was definitely hard enough to cause the holes up there. So we contacted the insurance company for the owner of this company here. And the insurance company offered a solution and we obliged and went along with their plan. And of course, we let them know that we thought the building needed a complete temporary covering. But at the time that wasn’t agreeable to the insurance company. So what we did is we did what the insurance company told us to do. We went up there and spot repaired where could, and it ended up that the leaks continued as we had initially thought they would. They continued to come into the building. The water started getting everywhere. The machinery in the warehouse started to get issues because of the rain that was coming in. And the workflow in the warehouse actually stopped because there was so much water coming in.

So we contacted the company again. We let them know that we thought the roof needed to be shrink wrapped like we originally had planned. And they finally agreed to let us do it. So we’re up there right now installing the shrink wrap. It’s a polymer product and it’s actually heat welded together. It’s like a TPO system, but it’s just a little less durable than TPO is. So it’s estimated to last up to a year against the UV and it’s a white product. So it kind of reflects those sun rays really, really well. So this roof now has a complete covering, albeit temporary, but it’s a complete covering. So there are no areas where that water can still get in. So what happens is the penetrations that come out through the roof, we actually tape the product to those penetrations with several rounds of tapes. So the shrink wrap producers, the manufacturers, they actually tell us how it’s supposed to be applied. As long as we follow those specifications, those instructions to a T, this roof will be good to go and free of leaks for the next year.
