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.

Case Study – Dome for a Cement Company, Boston

Case Study Provided by DRS - Dome & Roofing Solutions.   Scope: This is a tall dome at 85 feet, not including the additional head house. We repaired several areas of the damaged fabric and recoated the entire dome and head house in a custom color. We also coated an additional 12,869 of head house atop a 135 ft silo complex, as well as some structural steel because this rubber provides an excellent anti-rust feature. The customer is a cement company and due to problems with the dome, they had 2,000+ tons of cement powder harden on the inside. This is why scheduling preventative maintenance is so crucial for dome owners!   [gallery link="file" ids="3306,3305,3304" orderby="rand"]
