JRC was awarded the Roofing Contract for the La Quinta Inn and Suites in Fort Lauderdale, FL. The popular hotel chain was recently acquired by the world’s largest hotel company, Wyndham Hotels & Resorts for approximately for $1.95 billion. With the acquisition of La Quinta’s asset-light, fee-for-service business consisting of nearly 900 managed and franchised hotels, Wyndham Hotel Group will span 21 brands and over 9,000 hotels across more than 75 countries.
After sustaining 142 mph wind gusts and heavy rainfall from Category 5 Hurricane Irma, JRC Surveyor / Pilots quickly arrived on site to assess the property damage. JRC Surveyors also worked closely with insurance adjusters, Anderson Group handling La Quinta's commercial property insurance claim.
With over $20,000 in damages to the 4-story hotel, JRC provide a full re-roof to both the lower and upper roofs on the property.
For the upper roof portion, JRC started by removing the existing upper roof down to concrete deck. Once inspected, JRC installed Carlisle HD Cover board. The cover board is an integral part of creating a roofing assembly in which without it, the roof is missing added durability and the building is more susceptible to hail, fire and wind damage. Once the cover board was applied, JRC fully adhered 430 SQS Carlisle White TPO using the Carlisle Fast 100 spray foam adhesive. Walkways were installed along all of the rooftop access points further protect the roof membrane from any foot traffic.
For the lower roof portion, JRC provided customized roofing solutions by fully adhere the Carlisle HD cover board over current modified roof system and using Carlisle Fast 100 spray foam adhesive. By installing the new cover board over the existing modified roof system, the additional layer of material will provide additional insulation.
By using Carlisle Fast 100 spray foam adhesive for both upper and lower roof sections, the hotel will notice an increase in energy efficiency, and noise levels; superior wind lift resistance, low noise and low odor during installation. Additionally, by installing Carlisle Sure Weld 60 mil. white TPO along the white colored TPO will drastically affect the building's energy efficiency by reflecting the Florida sun's rays and minimizing the impact on the HVAC systems.
