The Sweden House Hotel & Lodge is an iconic landmark of the city. The Sweden House has over 100 years of history of hosting weddings, banquets, receptions and housing guests seeking an alternative to the typical chain hotels. Our team was hired to assist the insurance claim process after the hotel owners had vetted over 35 different contractors. The owners of the Sweden House felt, despite the insurance companies rather dismal findings upon initial adjustment, we could aid in an optimal outcome upon re-inspection.

Our initial inspection yielded extensive damage to numerous areas the insurance company had missed including 50% of the roofing surface, the low slope membranes, and necessary build back components. Our team advised the owners of the property to request for a 2nd adjustment at which we would be present to discuss our inspection results. Our recovery specialist discussed code related issues with the carriers scope and our field representative pointed out the additional items and repairs needed that were missed by the insurance company. The adjuster then made the necessary changes to the property summary in order to fund the project properly. The claim was written at $84,000 prior to this negotiation and the hotel would not have been able to afford the repairs.

The second summary included funding for the new items we presented at re-inspection and subsequently contracted to complete repairs for the ailing property facade. The owners choose to re-roof the building with Owens Corning Duration Brownwood. We installed the Owens Corning System including high profile ridge cap and Ice Shield throughout the valleys and eaves. The property had been built with an internal guttering system that was challenging to restore. An EPDM layer was installed by fully adhering it along the lower five feet of the eave and up the fascia in order to create a waterproof trough. Escape outlets were fashioned to flow to custom downspouts every 30’ in order to allow water to move away from the roofing edge to the desired drainage points.

Between the hotel and pool house spanned a 600 sf low slope breezeway covering that was so degraded the substrate had literally turned to dust. Our crew painfully removed all of the bracing and rubble carefully ensuring the preservation of the electrical and plumbing beneath. Our carpenter then built a center beam header with 2/12 rafter slopes to take the water off of the roofing surface to the eaves. The pool house internal gutter was shimmed in order to direct the water away from its internal gutter onto the breezeway for better drainage shed. Siding was removed 3’ up the wall and after insulation board was installed over the T-111 substrate in order to adhere Grace SBS Ice Shield. Once Grace was installed over the newly built structure a self adhering modified SBS membrane was installed to finalize the waterproofing.

Our company was also contracted to install custom fascia on every eave of the massive property. Over 1900 LF of 12” custom fascia was bent onsite and installed from 3 story scaffolding systems. The set up was 100% OSHA compliant and our efficient tradesman completed the task under 3 days.

We finalized the project by restoring the front carport parapet fence with all new carpentry pieces. Our crews then brightened up the look with a new color scheme of Sherwin WIlliams Classic Cream and Dignity Blue that livened up the entry for new guests. Under the carport we built a false ceiling to hide unsightly electrical conduit and drainage tiles with a beautiful cedar tongue and grove soffit. The front entry doors were sanded and stained with the soffit with a traditional cedar tone poly reminiscent of the properties motif from decades that of past.

WALGREENS

Projects

Roofing Size: 8800 SF

Additional Trades: Roof Recovering, Shingles & Custom Collection Boxes

Project Valuation: $58,000

The Walgreens project was presented to CAT by the Commercial developer Erickson Property Group. The roof was in desperate need of repair however, the budget was the concern. We presented the management of Erickson of variable recovering options.

The option we moved forward with was to avoid the re-roofing categorization under the code law and leave all of the existing insulation except that which was measurable deteriorated or moist. We skinned section by section of the existing EPDM rubber roofing and replaced it with 60ml Versico TPO over HD Fiberboard to add longevity and resilience of the system.

We scheduled our commercial shingle techs to be present in order to seamlessly transition the new roofing into the membrane transitions. We capped off the project by completing custom over-sized collection boxes and box downspouts in order to aid in ice damming and water flow.

Roofing Size: 161 Squares

Additional Trades: Custom Metal and Flashing work

Project Valuation: $114,000

This project consisted of two different systems due to the buildings added space prior to the original cosntruction. On the first section, our tech found two modified bitumen layers to remove in order to get down to the roof deck. We also realized that upon our core samples the decking was badly deteriorated and likely result in large amounts of metal decking replacement. We called on taper solutions systems grid planning for new 1.5” ISO board and taper system that would provide proper water flow from front to back of roof where the roof was currently inadequately performing. This roof had a .25 pitch with sagging dead spots in the front northwest portion of the roof.

A portion of the roof existed of two systems so our crew had to tear off of two layers of the modified bitumen and fiberboard substrate. After the existing roof was stripped down to Q deck (metal substrate), 3” of ISO and a 1” perlite board was installed due to municipal code compliance for this TPO system per 2003 ICC guidelines. We then fully adhered a Versico 45mil TPO system throughout the field and up the parapet walls.

The second section was stripped and cleaned to its wood substrate. The existing roof system had an undefinable r-value. After it was prepped, a 3” & 1.5” ISO board stagger stacked system was laid, giving an added 25 r-value to the roof system.

Once the ISO was adhered and parapet lines run we mechanically fastened a TPO 45mm single ply membrane. Custom flashing were fitted around protrusions and HVAC units and seams were robot welded throughout the field.

The existing r-value was unmeasurable prior to roof replacement. We assume that there will be a 15% heating/cooling savings due to the newly installed roof.

MILLENNIUM COVE CONDOMINIUM ASSOCIATION

Projects

Roofing Size: Steep Slope Asphalt 130,900

Additional Trades: Other Trades; Emergency Mitigation

Project Valuation: $2.9 million

Millennium Cove Condominium Association is a 32 building multifamily project in Orlando Florida.

CAT5 was called into mitigate the property after hurricane irma shredded all of the asphalt roofing systems on site. This property was affected by numerous tropical storms and needed serviced for over 9 months while the clients public adjuster negotiated their claim settlement. Our commercial managers monitored the buildings twice weekly in order to be sure the temporary roofing was in place and providing effective protection.

Of the 32 buildings over 65% of the 130,000 sf of roofing needed to be mitigated. Our team responded, assessed, documented, and effectively installed the temporary roofing systems on the community in under 4 weeks time.

Once the claim was settled by the clients public adjuster, CAT5 removed and reinstalled the roofing systems on nearly all of the buildings. This project was completed included re-decking over 25% of it in under 3 months time.

SHERBROOKE CONDOMINIUM ASSOCIATION

Projects

Roofing Size: Steep Slope Asphalt 74,700

Additional Trades: Emergency Mitigation

Project Valuation: $2.6 million

Sherbrooke Condominium Association is a 19 building multifamily project in Hollywood Florida.

CAT5 was called into mitigate the property after hurricane irma shredded nearly all of the asphalt roofing
systems on site. This property was affected by two tropical storms and needed serviced for over 8 months while the clients public adjuster negotiated their claim settlement. Our commercial managers monitored the buildings twice weekly in order to be sure the temporary roofing was in place and providing effective protection.

Of the 19 buildings over 80% of the 74,000 sf of roofing needed to be mitigated. Our team responded, assessed, documented, and effectively installed the temporary roofing systems on the community in under 3 weeks time.

Once the claim was settled by the communities public adjuster, CAT5 removed and reinstalled the roofing systems on nearly all of the buildings. A sparing few were re-roofed prior to the hurricane and spot repairs were sufficient.
