Roofing Contractor Likely to Face Fines after Newly Applied Coating Washes into Creek
This is a warning to everyone who puts down coatings, roof, deck, whatever…make sure it’s dry so it don’t wash into da creek!
A roofing contractor that applied a white acrylic coating to the roof of a commercial building in Palo Alto, Calif., is likely to face fines after a rainstorm washed paint into a nearby creek.
