Sulphur Springs, TX
RESTORATION OF AN 1895 HISTORICAL LANDMARK
Hopkins County Courthouse situated in Sulphur Springs, Texas was designed in the Romanesque Revival style by San Antonio-based architect, James Riely Gordon. The courthouse was constructed in 1894 & 1895. Through the years Mother Nature's relentless exposure to the elements on this building took its toll and now the soldered copper panel roofs and concrete decks required weatherproofing. The project needed a protection system that could stand the test of time and be flexible enough to accommodate movement in the structure. The solution also had to tie into and maintain the appearance of the historical building components.
The RoofPro membrane system along with its multiple choices in primers provided the unique ability to span soldered copper panel roofing, pink granite, plywood, concrete, and Pecos red sandstone surfaces.The Sika trained approved applicators were diligent with the surface preparation and installation of the Sikalastic RoofPro membrane materials. Their professional work and attention to detail provided a monolithic waterproofing/roofing system imperative to protecting the National Registered Historical courthouse. Hopkins County now has one of its local treasures restored, dry, and functional without interruption of continued service to its residents.
