Dome and Roofing Solutions (DRS) are experts in repairing the outer skins and membranes of your domes. We also specialize in roof restoration on large metal structures.

Protect Your Investment

Domes are terrific buildings. Efficient. Sturdy. Durable. But like all structures, you need to provide maintenance on your dome in order to protect your investment. Most domes are built with a fabric skin (or often called membrane) that only has a 10-12 year lifespan.  The UV from the sun is the most common form of damage. Other weather factors break down the skin as well.

Once the membrane shows signs of deterioration the structural integrity of the building begins to be compromised. The storage material can become contaminated or even ruined.

Just as no roof is permanent and will eventually need repaired and/or replaced, domes also must be repaired. Here at DRS we have the right solution to give you the peace of mind that your structure will last for many more years.

 

Without maintenance, harmful UV breaks down the outer layer of a dome starting at approximately 10-12 years. Should you have domes that are approaching this age (or even older!) then we urge you to schedule a maintenance before severe problems arise

Signs That It Is Time to Repair Your Dome's Skin

If your dome is approaching 10 years old or older, watch out for these signs.

  1. The first sign of airform deterioration is that the outside of the dome is chalky. (Note that it is common for debris such as dirt or grime from the environment to be on the fabric, which does not necessarily represent damage.)
  2. There are pockmarks, flakes, peels, tears, or holes on the airform.
  3. The polyurethane foam layer is exposed.
  4. There are leaks and drips on the inside of the dome.
Numerous signs that the airform is ruined and the foam layer exposed to rain.

Numerous signs that the airform is ruined and the storage material is in danger of contamination.

If you see any of these signs, contact DRS immediately to discuss repair options.  If your dome is older (10+ years) and you do not see any of these signs yet, you may still want to schedule your maintenance now before you develop problems. Remember, with domes it is not a matter of if, it is a matter of when.
