NENES was contracted by APW Wyott to repair and restore their large metal roof. APW Wyott, Inc. is a manufacturing company located in Cheyenne, WY. The roofing job was a full metal roof restoration. A metal roof that was 280,000 sq ft., a massive job, a phenomenal roof in size alone.
With any metal roof restoration, it starts with power washing the metal roof and removing all of the rust. We then apply roofing primer to all the roof panels and seams. This process is called adding a “base coat” roofing. If the rust is really bad, like on this roofing job, we will replace some of the roof panels to help repair the metal roof and bring it back to a structurally sound roof. Next, we add another process called applying a “top coat”, we spray the entire roof with our roofing coating making this a complete metal roof coating system.
We saved them so much money on the roof restoration, instead of replacing the roof, they asked to join our roof maintenance program. Our contracting crew worked on this metal roof and the APW building from 1996 to 2006 (through our roof maintenance program). We saved the company money on a new roof and provided exceptional roof maintenance and care for over a decade. Every year we did a full roof inspection, we looked for problems to fix, leaks anything at all – we take care of it through the roof maintenance program. In some cases, like this one, you may find problems after you fix a roof. Problems that were caused because of the type of work being done in the manufacturing processes at their facility. The processes at the facility caused the roof to rust quickly. Our maintenance prevention allowed us to take care of any problems and get the roof back up to roof specs and so the roof can stay underneath the roofing warranty program.
You can read about it on our referral page. We received a letter of recommendation from their V. P. of Operations and Plant Superintendent that we saved them from spending 1.3 million on a new roof. The cost for us to restore the roof was approximately third of the cost to do a brand-new roof.
