Shrink Wrap Used to Cover Mansion Roof

Mellon Certified Restoration Turns to Mr. ShrinkWrap for Weather Protection

Buckingham, PA – Shrink technicians from Mr. ShrinkWrap completed installation of a partial roof cover to the fire-damaged sections of a Georgian-style mansion roof in Buckingham on Christmas Eve afternoon.

Using 80 and 60 foot man lifts, the shrink technicians were able to secure the film to more than 70% of the mansion's roof, covering more than 1500 square feet. Waterproof heat shrink tape was also applied to reinforce all seams and edges. The type of shrink wrap used is similar to that often used for boat covers, but much thicker and has flame retardant properties.

The restoration project is in response to a third story fire that occurred in the afternoon on October 22, 2013. It is the third fire in four years at the Stony Hill Road residence. The cause has not yet been determined in any of the fires, according to officials.

Mr. ShrinkWrap Service Manager, Kevin Reese states, "The shrink wrap cover will serve to prevent further water damage until property owners decide on how they want to proceed with the house restoration process."
