Tremco Provides Critical Roofing Support for Hospitals During Pandemic

Throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, Tremco Roofing & Building Maintenance has been providing critical roofing products and services for a number of hospital systems and other healthcare facilities so they can remain open and operational. One of its customers is among North America’s largest hospital networks. Tremco Roofing has been hard at work repairing roofs for the 180-hospital system, undertaking projects across Alabama, Florida and Texas since the initial Covid-19 outbreak.

The main priority is to keep the hospitals operational, with zero disruptions for their patients and caregivers. This created the challenge of solving roofing issues while minimizing material removal, foul odors, airborne debris and landfill waste. As a solution, the team at Tremco Roofing chose to restore, rather than completely replace, the hospital roofs by using its odorless AlphaGuard BIO System. This allowed the projects to be completed in nearly half the time and reduce costs by millions of dollars.


In April, Tremco Roofing also assisted with turning Sleep Train Arena, the former home of the Sacramento Kings, into a pop-up field hospital designed to accommodate and treat more than 300 coronavirus patients. As part of this project, Tremco successfully repaired a badly leaking roof within just one week.

Thanks to our associates at Tremco Roofing for providing critical support to our frontline workers, healthcare facilities and local communities during these extraordinary times.
