Project Description

How Cocoon Cool Roofs Reduced Internal Temperatures and Remediated MMRC Mitcham New Factory

We recently completed a project for a client who was experiencing rust on their roof and high internal temperatures in their factory. We provided a solution that addressed both issues and achieved impressive results.

To address the rust on the roof and reduce internal temperatures, we recommended and applied our heat reflective/waterproofing membrane. The membrane prevents water from penetrating the roof and reflects sunlight and heat away from the building, lowering internal temperatures and reducing the load on the air conditioning system.

Our team faced a few challenges during the implementation process, including weather conditions and the need to treat the heavy rust areas working with the weather as there were quite strong winds. However, we were able to overcome these challenges and complete the project within the agreed timeline.

The results of the project were impressive. The before and after photos clearly show the drastic change to the roof and the improved appearance of the factory. Our client also reported that the internal temperatures had decreased significantly, making the factory a much more comfortable place to work. They were pleased with the outcome of the project and the service we provided.

At Cocoon Cool Roofs, we take pride in providing practical solutions to our client’s problems. In this project, we were able to treat the rust and lower internal temperatures in a factory, improving both the appearance and comfort of the building. If you are experiencing similar issues, please contact us to see how we can help you.
