Executive Insight – Better Roof Designs

Being committed to continuous education and training helps us develop better roof designs. This past month, the National Roofing Contractor’s Association (NRCA) issued an industry update regarding polyisocyanurate R-values and their new recommendations in determining thermal resistance values for in-service insulation on roofing systems.  So what does this have to do with designing a better […]

 Fall Roof Preventative Maintenance

Good roof preventative maintenance practices include semiannual inspections. For most of us, September 23rd, the first day of fall, ushers in lower temperatures, changing leaves and tailgating.  But did you know this is the best time of year to be proactive and have your bi-annual roof inspection done?  While today’s roofing systems are durable and […]

 Metal Roofing Retrofit

Replace Your Metal Roofing System with a TPO Flute Fill System Metal roofing systems are known for their architectural beauty and their ability to withstand most elements.  But even metal roofs, over time, can show signs of wear.  Extensive exposure to extreme weather, UV exposure, and debris buildup will eventually take their toll on even the […]

 Polyiso Roof Insulation Payback

As climate-control costs skyrocket, facility managers are constantly on the lookout for ways to reduce utility bills without sacrificing the comfort of their workers or tenants. Polyisocyanurate, or polyiso, insulation is versatile, durable and offers a high level of thermal performance. A study conducted by the trade association of the Polyiso industry (PIMA), indicated that by […]

 Role of Commercial Roof Insulation

Commercial roof insulation acts like a thick blanket, sandwiched between the roof deck and the roof’s surface, to reduce heat transfer. In warm climates, the insulation may be paired with cool roof technology to reduce the cost of cooling the building. In cooler climates, the insulation layer can reduce heat loss during cold weather. In […]
