Roofing Solutions in Southeast Louisiana – Sunlight Contractors
When your roof is compromised, your entire business is compromised. A shoddy roof is vulnerable to weather damage that puts your entire property and anything it houses at risk. Like most modern contractors, Sunlight Contractors champions Gaco’s sustainable, state-of-the-art silicone roofing systems, which provide a permanent, seam-free seal against the elements, including wind, rain, and UV damage. Unlike many of our competitors, however, we take the time to install these pioneering systems properly. What’s the difference?
Knowledgeable contractors understand the pros and cons of diverse roofing systems and provide helpful information to customers
The roof is your property’s first line of defense against the elements and energy waste. Anything with that kind of impact on your business’ bottom line cannot be undertaken without adequate insight. At Sunlight Contractors, we understand the stressors placed on Louisiana business properties, and we have experience repairing and restoring roofs of every type.
We make concerted efforts to ensure that our customers are as informed as we are when it’s time to make decisions regarding their property. We provide resources that empower commercial and industrial property owners to make the most pragmatic, cost-effective decisions regarding their real estate’s structural integrity.
Honest roofing contractors start every project with a thorough assessment of the situation
Even with a robust general knowledge of roofs and roof-related problems, we discourage customers from making decisions without an understanding of the unique state of their own roof. In some cases, roofs may have been patched and repaired so often that a cursory glance won’t reveal all of the structural issues that need to be addressed.
At Sunlight Contractors, we offer structural assessments that enable us to see exactly what’s happening with your pre-existing roof substrate. A core sample permits us to get down to the earliest layers of your roof and provide an accurate assessment of potential complications and problems. An adhesion test ensures your new roof will adhere properly before it’s applied.
Forward-thinking roofing professionals take time to prep your roof before launching into installation mode
Once you’ve made an informed decision about your new roof, it’s time to prep your existing substrate for installation. That involves cleaning away degraded roofing materials, debris, and contaminants. Starting with a clean slate ensures a long-term solution to roofing problems. When contractors skip this important step, they set customers up for leaks and tears down the line.
After cleanup, Sunlight Contractors applies a 2-part epoxy primer/filler that improves adhesion and offers additional protection against UV rays. We follow priming with a sealant that encapsulates all of the odd angles and crevices that are commonly found on roofs. These channels tend to be the culprits behind seepage and leaks when left untended, so we ensure all breaches to your roof’s structure are filled.
Only when your roof has been thoroughly prepped do we begin the process of installing GacoFlex silicone roofing. While GacoFlex has the power to protect your roof from ponding, leaks, and UV rays, it will continue to do its job much longer if a little groundwork is laid first.
