Sulphur Springs, Texas courthouse gives testimony to Sikalastic RoofPro as the all-in-one restoration solution this building needed.
The Hopkins County Courthouse was constructed in 1895 in a Romanesque Revival style by an Antonio-based architect, James Riely Gordon. The beautiful building was ravaged by years of exposure to the elements, needing weatherproofing on the soldered copper panel roofs and concrete decks.
The project was in need of a protection system that could be flexible enough to accommodate movement in the structure while being durable enough to stand the test of time, all with the goal of maintaining the aesthetic of the historical building components.
Hopkins County Courthouse’s unique problem
The unique nature of this project was the problem of the multi-substrate waterproofing and roofing needs. The clear solution for this building was Sika Corporation’s Sikalastic RoofPro membrane system.
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.
