Henry® Acrylic Roof Coating System Helps Retirement Community Slash Costs

The Challenge

Friendship Village is a continuing care retirement community consisting of apartment- and casita-style living. As a not-for-profit operation, Friendship Village needed a cost-effective roof restoration solution for its on-site health care center.

After a local contractor submitted a bid in excess of $200,000 to install a single-ply TPO membrane on the two buildings, Friendship Village looked to Henry® for a much more affordable solution – one that the community’s maintenance team could install on its own to help save money.

The Solution

Following a careful assessment of the existing 80,000 square-foot roof, Henry® proposed a roof restoration solution that would fit the community’s roofing requirements and its budget – a Henry® acrylic roof coating system. To help the Friendship Village maintenance team achieve professional results, Henry® provided field training and support throughout the installation process.

The Results

By applying the Henry® acrylic roof coating system with its own maintenance team, Friendship Village was able to save approximately $150,000 vs. the contractor-installed single-ply TPO membrane. The health care center’s facilities were also spared the noise and disruption associated with a TPO membrane installation.Looking ahead, this roof restoration can deliver an energy savings of up to $10,800 annually*. Friendship Village plans to keep installing Henry® acrylic roof coating systems over the next decade, eventually restoring the roughly 800,000 square feet of roofing throughout the 48-acre property for a substantial long-term savings.
