The Problem

The FAA Building at Mitchell International Airport was to install new, larger, air conditioning units on their roof. Due to the size of the new units, the roof needed additional support installed while keeping the integrity of the TPO roofing system.

Initially, they were looking for a contractor that had HVAC and roof work both in house but were unsuccessful in the search, so the next goal was to find two separate contractors that would work in tandem to avoid any delays, as the equipment housed in the building was temperature sensitive. It was crucial that the work be completed in a timely manner.

The Solution

Guardian was selected for a few reasons: top ratings, exceptional warranty, and the willingness to work alongside the HVAC company.

“I am not sure if Guardian always sends a sales manager out to their sites, but it was a nice change to have someone onsite who had extensive product knowledge and the apparent experience that we expected to see on a project of this magnitude.”


The Result

The job moved quickly and smoothly. Guardian cut the roofing, set the new curb and re-flashed into the existing roofing with TPO Flat Roofing materials as scheduled to ensure that the A/C units could be installed the same day.

“When it comes to customer service, we were very satisfied with Guardian. From the start when the sales manager personally came to the site to develop a plan, to the project manager who was onsite throughout the process to ensure there were no issues, it was a very pleasant experience throughout. Guardian even noticed some other issues while they were out that had nothing to do with the work they were conducting and notified us right away, giving us options on what kind of repairs could be done to resolve the issues, preventing an emergency situation in the future. Because of that, we are looking into getting some more work completed with them in the near future.

I would recommend Guardian to anybody that is looking for commercial roofing repairs as well as residential. The way our commercial project was handled from start to finish gives us the confidence to recommend them for residential work as well. We were kept very informed and at no point felt as if we were just another paycheck for them. Instead we felt that our opinions were taken into consideration and we were an important part of the process.”
