Available for work in Colorado and Coast to Coast — It all starts with a simple phone call.

The new owners of this building, which is in need of skylight repair, are planning on opening The Clinic, a marijuana dispensary located on the busiest street in the Denver metro area.

The Problem:

They have a tight budget and did not plan for a skylight repair. Unfortunately, the existing 10′ x 22′ barrel vault has surpassed its useful lifespan and is leaking more than a little.

And, Denver has received nearly an inch of rain over the normal amount of precipitation for the year to date. When the annual average is 14.48″, an inch in four months is significant!

Typical poor skylight repair with incorrect product and application

The Solution:

Keeping their budget in mind, we were able to provide some emergency repairs to get this building weathertight before the opening date.

We did NOT treat this as a quick fix. Just slapping on some roof tar or caulking and walking away creates more problems than it solves. Many of the frame rivets had popped—allowing the acrylic lenses to slip out of position and creating gaps for water penetration.

We replaced those rivets and realigned the frame and lenses. Then we cleaned the inferior caulking from the skylight and applied a superior quality, structural silicone to ensure weathertightness.

The owners understand that they will need to create a budget for eventual replacement. In the meantime, they can open their store and proceed with business.

Within a week of their decision and under their budget!
