Blackstone Pub and Eatery, located in historic Downtown Gadsden, Alabama, teamed up with Lapolla and West Roofing Systems to replace their original roof system. The building had its original built-up roof system along with a metal roof installed on top. One of the major issues that plagued the owner of Blackstone Pub was the leaking roof. The original built-up roof had multiple leaks that were letting water into the building. The owner of the building was tired of paying to patch small areas of the roof and decided to install a whole new roof system. In addition to the leaking roof, he was spending between $1,500 – $3,000 a month on energy bills to heat and cool his building.
The best solution for Blackstone Pub was to remove the metal roof system and install a spray polyurethane foam (SPF) roof system right on top of the original built-up roof system. The installation took three days to complete, and the building owner was able to enjoy a leak-free facility while saving $400 – $600 every month on energy bills through the insulation of the SPF roof.
