Court House Skylights Shine Bright With New Waterproofing System

Sika Russel Court House

By Sika. 

The Dan Russel Federal Court House in Gulfport, Mississippi undergoes a roof replacement and skylight waterproofing project with a seamless, monolithic membrane system. 

Project background 

Nestled in Gulfport, Mississippi, the Dan Russel Federal Court House boasts an enchanting foyer with magnificent skylights illuminating the space, but when a hurricane struck and the waterproofing system aged, the building required a new roof and skylight repairs. 

Project requirement 

Install a continuous, monolithic waterproofing/roofing membrane system integral across the roof, built in gutters/scuppers, and over parapet walls that also incorporated the skylights. The total size of the project was 4,400 square feet with 1,900 SF being built up new roof and 2,500 SF skylight waterproofing. 

Project description 

The Sikalastic-621 RoofPro BUR membrane system along with the Sikalastic Clearglaze skylight waterproofing system were chosen for their ability to incorporate the skylights into a completely seamless, monolithic, and compatible waterproofing/roofing system. The Western Specialty crew out of New Orleans was selected for the task. 

First, the old roof was stripped off and replaced with new insulation, roof cover board and a Sikalastic RoofPro 20-year, reinforced liquid-applied membrane system. The Sikalastic-621 RoofPro system ran continuously across the roof, into gutters, scuppers and up onto building and skylight frames. Finally, the skylights were cleaned and primed. The Sikalstic-621 RoofPro system was installed over all mullions, caps and perimeters. Following in suit, two coats of the Sikalastic Clearglaze were applied over the skylights and then tied into the newly installed Sikalastic-621 RoofPro system. 

Sika has the resources to provide all materials for a built-up roof and skylight repair as a single source manufacturer. Call your local Sika Rep today for more information!
