Sacramento, California -- Thermal Roof Systems has insulated the roof of what it says is one of Northern California's "most notable" athletic clubs, using spray polyurethane foam.
Millennium Sports Club was developing a number of projects to improve its facilities, including those to prevent roof leakage. At first, Millennium was sceptical about using spray foam insulation as a material to prevent roof leakage, but opted to experiment with the foam, Thermal Roof Systems said in a 16 Dec news release.
"We were assigned to apply spray polyurethane foam on a 3400-sq-ft (316 sq.m) roof over a basketball court in Vacaville, California," said Tom Schaal, vice president of sales and marketing for Thermal Roof Systems. "The company hired us to demonstrate the benefits of spray foam insulation as a test."
The Thermal Roof Systems team applied one inch of closed-cell spray foam onto the roof of the basketball court. The company said that following the test trial, the foam proved not only to prevent roof leakage, but according to the club's basketball players, noticeably improved conditions inside the court.
"Millennium was so happy with the work we did that they assigned us to re-roof their entire Merced facility," Schaal said.
Thermal Roof Systems sent a seven-man crew to apply one inch of closed-cell foam onto the 22 000-sq-ft roof.
"We were able to fix the leakage problem the roof was plagued with," Schaal said. "Like the basketball court in Vacaville, roof leakage no longer became a problem, and conditions inside the facility were greatly improved."
Thermal Roof Systems of Sacramento, California, is a spray polyurethane foam and roofing contracting company.
