J3 Systems, LLC., a Carlisle SynTec Systems’ Authorized Applicator headquartered in Bosque Farms, NM, was awarded the bid on the re-roofing of the Raton Public Service Co. Power Plant, using Carlisle’s Sure-Weld TPO membrane and a VacuSeal Vent Secured Roofing System to lock the membrane in place. Family-owned and operated since its founding in 1973, J3 Systems was selected because of their expertise in low-slope commercial roofing and high-quality installation work. J3 Systems has earned Excellence in Single-Ply (ESP) and Perfection status from Carlisle, honors reserved for a select group of applicators who consistently exceed Carlisle’s standards.

The Raton Public Service Co. Power Plant, an 11,282 sq. ft. electric generation plant located in Raton, New Mexico, is a historic building that was built in 1919. At the beginning of 2020, city officials noticed several leaks that threatened to ruin the massive electrical equipment kept inside the plant that provided the city of Raton with electricity. They knew it was time to re-roof the building. The existing roof was an EPDM membrane over insulation and two different roof decks.

J3 Systems, LLC., a Carlisle Authorized Applicator headquartered in Bosque Farms, NM, was awarded the bid on this project. Family-owned and operated since its founding in 1973, J3 Systems was selected because of their expertise in low-slope commercial roofing and high-quality installation work. J3 Systems performed an inspection of the existing roof system and suggested that Carlisle’s Sure-Weld TPO membrane be used to recover the existing EPDM membrane, using VacuSeal Vent Secured Roofing Systems, a revolutionary assembly that uses special vents to harness the power of the wind to lock the roof membrane in place without using adhesives or fasteners. This recommended roofing system eliminated the need for a complete tear-off, saving the power plant both time and money.
