Corporate Disk Company
McHenry, IL l 2013
22,926 sq. ft. l 60-mil, Non-reinforced EPDM Ballasted Roof
After 20 years, the 22,926 sq. ft. roof on the Corporate Disk Company’s facility in McHenry, Illinois, needed to be replaced. The company, which manufactures digital media products and accessories, was looking for a long-term solution. The facility’s existing EPDM membrane and flashings had deteriorated to such an extent that maintenance and repair were no longer options.
Corporate Disk selected a new EPDM single-ply membrane, held in place with ballast. This roofing system was the best fit for their specific facility, the prevailing weather conditions and their roofing budget. While the old membrane was not salvageable, the existing insulation layer was still in decent shape and was re-used, while the old membrane was recycled.
North American Roofing completed the project in 2 weeks in the following order:
- Removed the damaged EPDM membrane
- Prepped and reattached the insulation layer (when necessary)
- Installed 60-mil, non-reinforced, single-ply EPDM membrane
- Secured with ballast
Operations continued at Corporate Disk during the re-roofing project. North American Roofing employed non-disruptive practices that allowed Corporate Disk to carry on its day-to-day activities.
The Corporate Disk re-roofing project was a success because North American Roofing was able to remove the old system and install the new one in two short weeks. The company originally contacted North American Roofing because the scope of the project required the services of a large, well-organized roofing company. It was important to complete the re-roofing project quickly so that it didn’t interfere with the scheduled installation of a new parking lot.
