VaproShield Membrane Remains Intact After Hurricane

November 21, 2017

GIG HARBOR, WA – 11/03/2017 – Following a site visit to assess the damage of Hurricane Irma on the J.W Marriot Marco Island Resort — a VaproShield project in Marco Island, Florida — it was noted that 65,000 square feet of meticulously installed RevealShield SA Self-Adhered withstood the forces of the hurricane during its historic September 10th landfall. To the relief of installation crews, less than 10% of the membrane was damaged.

"When I first saw the areas with membrane still intact, it felt like a huge accomplishment for our team,” noted Aaron Gould, VaproShield Technical Manager of East Coast/Latin America. “Irma [winds] were exceptionally strong, and I believe our extensive testing paid off for the crew of the JW Marriott."
