OYO Hotel
Pensacola, Florida

Project Overview

Summary provided by video transcript.

How you doing? My name’s Josh with RestoreMasters. We’re here at the OYO hotel. The hurricane came through and ripped the roof clear off the building. There’s a lot of damage around the property and on the interior. Let’s go check it out. We were completing our jobs down the street, and while I was making my way back up the road, I noticed the owner in the parking lot pacing on the phone. I stopped by and introduced myself, and the owner let me know that he was waiting on his insurance company to get back to him. I let him know in emergency situations, we document everything, and we’ll go ahead and get this moving now. Now we’re over here on the building, tarping, and making sure we get the water removal done. Let’s go check out the roof.

As you can see, the hurricane lifted the coping completely off the wall and took the TPO off of the roof system. Our guys already have new TPO being laid over the wall to prevent any more water from getting in. The next step is going to be removing all this excess water off the roof so we can lay a new loose lay TPO system over the top to prevent any more water from getting into the building. Aside from the wind lift on the TPO and coping you just saw, flying debris, puts holes in these TPO roof systems all the way across. So laying that loose lay temporary roof system down is going to prevent any water from getting in those holes. Once we have the temporary roof system laid down, we’re going to wait for the insurance approval to move forward.

So the reason that we do the temporary loose lay over the entire roof is because we know it works. These patches, they don’t last long. And sometimes you miss a hole. We’re going to be dealing with the insurance provider, and sometimes that takes time. Obviously, we have an approval here, but we also need to get this building to be back up to code. Right now, there’s only one inch board of insulation under the roofing system, and up the code, it’s four and a half inches. Also, as you can see, there’s a lot of ponding behind me. We need to prove to the insurance company that they need a taper roof so we can drain this water off properly.

So we’re at one of the better rooms at the hotel. And unfortunately, every room in the building is soaked. We’re going to have to go in and gut everything out, and put our dehumidifiers and air movers in there so that we can dry out all the wood framing. After that, we’ll bring our environmentalist in so they can give us the okay to start building the rooms back so that this business owner can get back to business.

So recap this project, the roofs torn off, there’s water in the building, and exterior much to all the stucco. If you’re like this business owner and you’ve got a complicated job, look us up on the web, give us a call. Thanks for watching. See you guys next time.
