Filter by membrane type
The roof of the Skokie Fashion Mall was in bad shape. Leaks were becoming more and more numerous, and for a retail outlet this isn’t acceptable for very long. An inspection of the roof showed that water was penetrating the membrane and had completely soaked the insulation.
The existing assembly was an R-Panel roof with spray foam insulation on the underside of the deck. The customer wanted R-Value but did not want it on the underside of the deck because of the environment inside. The process of forging metal had deteriorated the insulation as well as the metal R-Panel decking.
The existing EPDM roof on this facility had deteriorated beyond repair, and the budget wouldn’t allow for a total roof replacement. With that in mind, North American Roofing recommended installing a new TPO assembly over the existing EPDM. Not only would the roof leaks stop, but the switch from black EPDM to white TPO would provide significant energy savings over the lifecycle of the new roof.
Mitsubishi Heavy Industries knew the roof system on their facility in Franklin, Indiana was in bad shape. When it was determined that the 118,759-square-foot roof needed to be replaced, North American Roofing knew it was important to specify and install a durable roofing system due to the heavy amount of foot traffic that was partially responsible for the roof’s premature deterioration in the first place. It was also imperative that the new roofing system be Factory Mutual approved, and white, per Mitsubishi’s requirements.
Wilson Warehouse – Baton Rouge, LA
A 197,539 square foot warehouse in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. The roof was replaced with a TPO membrane and received a “Perfect 10” inspection rating from the manufacturer.
Sterigentics was facing the typical problem facilities have when their roofs are 25 years old, leaks. A lot of the flashing around the HVAC units and skylights had deteriorated and was letting water underneath the membrane. After inspecting the existing insulation, we determined not all the insulation was damaged or wet so we were able to salvage most of it, reducing the overall cost of the project.
After 20 years, the ballasted EPDM roof on the HealthSouth Rehabilitation Hospital in Arlington, Texas was nearing the end of its useful life. Energy costs were a major concern and it was obvious the new system needed to be reflective. HealthSouth Corporation chose North American Roofing to replace the old roof, based on our reputation, our experience and our competitive price.
The Home Depot was looking for a long-term roofing solution for the Reno, NV store that could be installed in a timely manner with no disruptions to the store’s operations. Because the store would be open for business while the roof installation was in progress, all necessary safety precautions were enforced to protect the store’s patrons and associates.
Toys “R” Us – Kennesaw, GA
This project for Toys “R” Us required us to vacuum, remove, and properly dispose of the loose gravel from the existing built-up roof. One inch of polyisocyanurate insulation was mechanically anchored to the deck, and a NARSI 60-mil LaserWeld PVC membrane was installed.
Boar’s Head Provisions Co. had a processing plant in Virginia that was in need of repair. Relative to the size of the facility, the section of the roof that needed to be replaced was small. However small the job was in square feet, it made up for it in difficulty. The number of penetrations and pipelines on the roof were obstacles from the start, and the entire underside of the deck had to be sealed off completely from the inside of the building.
Liberty Property’s existing 141,000-square-foot built-up roof (BUR) had outlived its usefulness. Over the years, it developed multiple leaks, which damaged parts of the roof’s structure. The roof was beyond the patching or recoating stage, the insulation was compromised in spots, and long-term exposure to water resulted in some damage to the roof deck. Liberty wanted a new top-quality roof system with an affordable price tag.
General Electric has been committed to protecting the environment and conserving natural resources—and have reaped the financial benefits of those actions—for years. So when GE Aviation in Asheville, NC needed a new roof, it was no surprise that management looked for a way to not only repair the existing roof with a durable, long-lasting alternative but also to find a way for the roof to make their facility more energy efficient. Lowering the utility costs of the overall building envelope was a hot button, and the budget was a concern.
RockTenn, a national packaging and corrugated products manufacturer, was looking for an energy-efficient, long-term roofing solution for their 276,696 sq. ft., newly purchased facility in Marion, North Carolina. Preliminary inspections revealed numerous issues with a 54,480 sq. ft. section of the old roof, including abundant leaks, soaked insulation, and the presence of a large amount of non-friable asbestos-containing material (ACM). The remaining 222,216 sq. ft. was salvageable but needed additional protection from the elements.
HealthSouth – Conroe, TX
North American Roofing 60-mil fully adhered TPO roof system over existing BUR flat roof. Applied two coats of GAF TopCoat over the entire metal roof surface. Provided materials and manufacturer 10-year warranty.
This project required a tear off of all existing roofing down to the insulation, including all ballast from the surface. High-level executives from SNL Financial have their offices in an adjacent building and most look down on this particular rooftop. It was important that we installed a more aesthetically pleasing membrane color, as well as a vegetative roofing system to lessen the eyesore of an old ballasted roof.
