US Cold Storage 2004
Project Name: US Cold Storage
Location: Sacramento and Union City, CA
Project Type: Reroof two cold storage freezer plants and upgrade vapor barrier
Year Completed: 2004
Size: 393,932 sq. ft
Challenge: The existing asphalt roof had failed as a waterproof membrane and as a vapor barrier. Maintenance costs were escalating and valuable electricity was being wasted.
Solution: After the SPF roof and vapor barrier coating system was installed, the frost and ice inside the building has dissipated (evaporated). A review of electricity bills from before and after installing the SPF roof and vapor barrier on the Union City project showed a savings of $8,000 per month. The entire cost of the project will be recovered in approximately seven years.
