The SureCoat Roof System was installed over 85,000 SF of flat rolled roofing on The MAP Sports Facility located in Garden Grove.

Garden Grove, CA – A SureCoat Systems’ Platinum Approved Contractor received this lead and built this 85,000 square foot project on The MAP Sports Facility located at: 12552 Western Avenue, Garden Grove, CA. When the contractor originally took this roof under contract, they used the SureCoat roof maintenance plan to keep an eye on the roof and keep the leaks at bay while the building owners worked to get the roof budget in place.

Partners that started The MAP facility ran leagues all their adult life. Their leagues were growing and they decided to lease a huge warehouse and create an inside venue with a professional athlete atmosphere. Everyone wants to feel like a star when they’re on the court! The partners of The MAP facility and their sponsors made it possible to turn this commercial warehouse into a First Class Sports Venue!

Prior to the construction remodel, this was a vacant storage warehouse. The building had three major concerns that were all solved with one product; 1) continuous roof leaks, 2) the tenants would not allow for a tear-off and 3) heat transfer into the building. Hundreds of athletes in motion have a tendency to create a lot of hot air!

Approximately $300,000 of which was eight new maple wood basketball courts and volleyball training courts, new carpet and new flooring. Leaks through the roof was a serious concern for the tenant their first years open and a tear-off was just as much of a concern and with good reason. These basketball courts could not get wet. A roof tear off would not only create a huge a mess with truckloads of waste carried off to landfills, but would likely damage the newly remodeled sports venue and close down daily operations.

The MAP Sports houses large and small basketball tournaments and both private and recreational sports leagues every day of the week. After a ½ million dollar construction investment funded in part by dozens of big name sponsors, closing down for a month or more, was not possible for the partners of The MAP Sports Facility. They did not want any new construction to damage their expensive investment.

In the interim, while the owners of the building worked to get their roof budget in place, the roofing contractor performed approximately 10,000 SF of SureCoat roof partials and repairs over the course of three years. The SureCoat repairs were tied into as part of the full roof system once the roof budget was funded. The SureCoat Roof System was completed on this building in April of 2014.

What this means for the building owner: Repair and maintenance budget dollars are not wasted on temporary roof repairs rather they are an investment towards a new roof! Future penetrations are easily sealed with a SureCoat Roof Repair Kit and will self-adhere to the existing SureCoat Roof without voiding the manufacturer roof warranty.
