Construction Year:


Skylight of Dan Russel Federal Court House


The Dan Russel Federal Court House in Gulfport, MS has a beautiful entryway with large skylights that brighten the foyer. However, a recent hurricane and prior aged conditioned required a roof replacement and repairs to the skylight waterproofing.


Install a continuous, monolithic waterproofing/roofing membrane system integral across the roof, built in gutters/scuppers, and over parapet walls that also incorporated the skylights. The total size of the project was 4400 square feet with 1900 SF being built up new roof and 2500 SF skylight waterproofing.


The Sikalastic-621 RoofPro BUR membrane system along with the Sikalastic Clearglaze skylight waterproofing system were chosen for their ability to incorporate the skylights into a completely seamless, monolithic, and compatible waterproofing/roofing system. The Western Specialty crew out of New Orleans was selected for the task.


First, the old roof was stripped off and replaced with new insulation, roof cover board and a Sikalastic RoofPro 20-year, liquid-applied membrane system. The Sikalastic-621 RoofPro system ran continuously across the roof, into gutters, scuppers and up onto building and skylight frames. Finally, the skylights were cleaned and primed, The Sikalstic-621 RoofPro system was installed over all mullions, caps and perimeters followed by two coats of the Sikalastic Clearglaze over the skylights that tied into the newly installed Sikalastic-621 RoofPro system.
