GACO Roofing System

Kuhlman Builders Inc. has been an authorized dealer/contractor of the Duro-Last Roofing System since 1992, and have installed many low slope roofs in and around the surrounding area. With their age and some are out of warranty, we needed to find a cost effective solution for our customers other than wasting money removing and replacing these roofs.

We are proud to introduce the Gaco roofing system. We researched and went through training and found that this product is what we needed to use. It is a silicone based material that can be spray applicated or a thickness of .22 mils. It comes with 10 yr. warranty.

This is a very cost effective way to re-roof your building and avoid costly tear off and replacement. For example a 5000 square foot building would cost around $2.50 – $3.00 a Square foot to coat with the Gaco system, while with the removal of the roof, dump fees and new roof you could pay over $9.00 a square foot.

Also with the Gaco System, when the 10 year warranty come due you simply clean it and add another .22 mils to extend the warranty another 10 yrs.

We are still a dealer contractor for the Duro-Last System as not all of the roofs will qualify for the Gaco System. For whatever your roofing needs require we should be able to cover it.
