How’s it going? Matt Irvin here. Today, we are at the Majoria Plaza project here in New Orleans. Follow me and let’s check it out.
We are here today because a category five hurricane came through and ripped sections of the roof off and it caused leaks here in all of the units. We are tasked with getting the water sucked out and getting everything put back to pre-storm conditions. Let’s go up on the roof and see what the guys are doing today.
Now that we’re up here on top of the roof, you can see that we have a few technicians here behind me finishing up some of the details in this area, but let’s go ahead and get out of their way. Follow me over here. Over here in this section, we can see the newly installed system here, and we can see the LooseLay TPO installed here in this section. The reason that we had to install the LooseLay and not a tarp or anything of that nature is ’cause tarps, they don’t hold water, and water can flow right up underneath the tarp. So, you have to install a full TPO roof system welded together for any of the ponding areas. The reason we had to do that is because the debris from the hurricane poked holes kind of throughout the system here. Also, it backed some of the nails and the screws from the previous roof system back up through the membrane that they had here previously.
On any flat roofing system, doing a daily dry in is always a concern because at any given time during the night, if it’s not completely adhered together with the old system, it can leak inside. As you can see on this one, what we do every night —— and we have our guys QC check it —— is before the night is over, we weld the TPO system here to the old TPO system. If it’s not properly dried in and tied into the old roof each and every day and each and every night, a sudden rain can occur and all that water can come rushing into the building. So, what we do every night and every day before we move on to any other sections is we ensure that these sections are properly welded together and that there is no chance of water entry and no concern for our clients.
Every project, especially after these hurricanes, comes with its challenges. This roof system, as you can see, it’s a metal roof, which is much different than your flat roof systems on the other side. We also have stucco, painting, interior, drywall, flooring, and a lot of other trades going on inside. Let’s go ahead and head that way and check out the interior guys.
Many of the units here at the Plaza have sustained lots of damages like what you see here behind me. But also as we walked in, you seen the soffits ripped out. You seen the drywall all cut out from where the water was standing inside. And now we have all of our guys putting back the drywall, fixing all the flooring, installing new ceiling tile, getting everyone back up and running and back into business.
If you’re a commercial property owner and you find yourself in a situation like this or any type of disaster situation, and you need a contractor who has the experience to get this handled and get it done and get you put back into pre-storm condition, please check us out on the web, give us a call. We would love to help you out. This is Matt Irvin. Thanks for watching.
