Dome Repair in Elizaville, New York

Case Study Provided by DRS - Dome & Roofing Solutions. Scope: This 12,600 surface feet dome had a rubberized elastomeric coating (ie., acrylic) applied in 2011 by a local contractor. It was the wrong protection and it started showing signs of failure in just 2 years. To preserve the fabric, we punctured the water bubbles and filled them full of liquid EPDM rubber rather than remove the air form. We coated the entire dome in a UV resistance, waterproof, seamless rubber membrane that has a life expectancy of 20 years.

Dome Repair in Mooreland, Oklahoma

Case Study Provided by DRS - Dome & Roofing Solutions.   Scope: This dome was in terrible condition! Mold had penetrated the structure. The foam was rotted and the outer layer was deteriorated. Trees were growing on top of the dome! The owner tried three different “solutions”, all of which quickly failed – stucco, paint, & an elastomeric rubberized membrane. We removed all of the exterior fabric that remained, as well as many rotted areas. We re-foamed the complete dome, which provided a stable surface that we could work upon. We then sealed the dome in a UV resistance, waterproof, seamless rubber membrane that has a life expectancy of 20 years.
