Prachi Exports

We provided our BuildScape - Cool Roof solution at one of the major export houses in Tirupur, Tamil Nadu (http://prachiexports.com/web/) which was suffering from excessive heat gain and water ingress issues from their roof onto their factory floors. The roof was covered with disintegrated bitumen sheets stuck on with tar. Below the sheets the roof had large cracks, some weed growth, water stagnation and many other damages to the concrete slab.
  • We removed the bitumen sheets and scraped off the residual tar with a thorough acid soap wash.
  • We carried out a systematic roof repair by grinding open all the cracks and repairing them with super latex cement and polyurethane sealant to allow the expansion and contraction of joints.
  • We cleaned every square inch of the roof of dust and dry moss using wire brush technique and did a thorough water wash of the roof.
  • We liberally applied a coating of sealant primer to fill any pores and made surface ready for cool roof coating.
  • We then applied three thick coats of heat reflecting elastomeric cool roof coating to provide the perfect finish.
We only use Dr. Fixit products from Pidilite Industires to carry out all repairs and coatings. BuildScape - Cool Roof comes with an eight year warranty against water ingress and paint chipping.
