Work Safer, Faster and Smarter.
Weatherskin Has Revolutionized The Eco-Coatings Industry
Metal Roof Case Study – Brewery
This brewery needed a solution for the multitude of failures on its metal roof. The galvanized metal was wearing down, the roof was absorbing massive heat from the sun which was negatively affecting the building’s cooling costs.
Roofing Case Study – Public School
The stress load from the gravel and the constant leaking due to ponding water and poorly protected scuppers/terminations signified a complete tear-off which would be an enormous cost and inconvenience to a school with year-round operations.
Washable Room Case Study – Cannabis Grow Room
This cannabis grow facility needed protection that would last indefinitely. The initial floor coatings which were simply concrete densifier and a clearcoat had already failed only months into production, the room needed to be coated properly to bring it up to compliance with Healtlh & Drug departments.
Flat Roofing Case Study – Multi-Family Home
These residents were not happy. Literal lakes had formed above their apartments and every seam on this SBS roof was a potential failure. The drainage no longer performed properly, the material was buckling, and leaks were occurring.
Epoxy Case Study – Luxury Auto-Body
The existing epoxy product was extremely weak and never meant for this application. Due to poorly prepped floors and poor adhesion, after only 5 months the floor was failing everywhere. Anywhere that heat transfer occurred like under warm tires, or where chemicals were split, the floor had instantly yellowed.
Epoxy Case Study – Auto Detailing Shop
This floor had been coated by a “professional” that same year. It really is a costly let-down when you’ve put your trust and assets (your building) in the hands of a supposedly reputable brand, company or contractor and they end up using retail grade materials on a commercial/industrial application. Products that might last 2 years if you’re lucky in a residential garage are going to fail almost immediately in commercial applications.
Case Study – Concrete Foundation
After the shoring was pulled away the Weatherskin team got a good look at the scope of work. Any voids and cracks were marked with bright spray paint as these areas needed either fiber tape, epoxy injections, polyurethane sealant or spray foam to seal them completely. Special attention is always paid to the joint where the footing slab meets the wall.
Case Study – Offices
This facility was brand new, with a relatively freshly poured concrete floor. To reduce the effects of hydrostatic pressure, a black membrane was first used to permeate the concrete, followed by a dark gray solid coat of “WS106: Green Concrete” epoxy. This will eliminate moisture pockets from occurring underneath the finish. All the imperfections in the floor were patched with Weatherskin concrete filler.
Case Study – Mechanical Room
The epoxy used on this mechanical room had failed in it’s first year. We could understand that to save money, the client resorted to using store bought epoxy and did the application in-house. The problem, is that without having the proper testing and tolerances for chemicals, heat and moisture, these products will fail quickly.
Case Study – New Home Textured Wall Coating
This buildings walls were clad with closed cell rigid foam sheeting that has high impact resistance. Wafer washer screws were used to fasten the foam to the structure. The screws were all recessed as to not affect the following layers & coatings.
