Covenant Services, Inc. provided Lucas Thermoplastic coating services to Catalna Centre, located in Boynton Beach, Florida. Covenant Services was the first company to restore a gravel roof in Florida. The roof was constructed in 1987, and through our restoration process it still stands.
Michael Taylor, President of Covenant Services in Deerfield Beach, is excited about the roof he installed at the Catalina Center in Boynton Beach. He explains, “From the moment it’s installed, the Lucas #6000 Thermoplastic Coating System will provide significant energy savings to the tenants.”
Taylor says the owner’s decision to have the new roof installed is nothing short of monumental and the first project of this scope in South Florida that is occurring over an active business. Michael explains, “There is a college here as well as businesses. To have this kind of activity on the roof not only creates a degree of noise, but you have the threat of roof leaks at all times. Keep in mind that we have taken the gravel off this 92,500 square-foot section, down to the roofing plies, and have kept it leak free during the recent rains. Needless to say the owners are extremely happy that their tenants have been taken care of with all precaution.”
Taylor says that his client, Tulepan Management, LLC, will save about half the cost of a conventional roof replacement. Eleven percent of that savings will come in the form of energy rebates for using the Lucas product. Taylor explains, “For our roof restoration, the
client is getting the initial installation and 10 years of roof maintenance that will be hundreds of thousands of dollars less than the one-time installation of a conventional system. Plus, he will be able to budget his roof expenditures for the next 20 years with fixed costs.”
Craig Tulepan, a principle at Tulepan Management, looks forward to retaining tenants during challenging economic times by being able to offer them a 20-30% energy bill savings every month. Tulepan is able to demonstrate to current and future tenants that he is actively pursuing ideas that save them money.
