Roof System: Modified Bitumen
Area: 20,000 sq. ft.

Project Scope of Work:

  • Conduct a thorough roof analysis of the existing roof system with the owner's representative to determine the condition of the existing roof system and an appropriate course of action that meets with the client's needs.
  • Remove existing roof system to the existing wood deck and repair deck and structure system.
  • Mechanically attach base sheet to wood deck and install new mechanically attached insulation system.
  • Installed multiple plies of glass membrane covered in a high performance modified bitumen mineral surfaced cap sheet all adhered in hot asphalt.
  • Installed multiple plied of base flashing covered in a high performance modified bitumen mineral surfaced cap sheet all adhered in hot asphalt. Installed new field formed edge termination metal flashing.

Project Intent:

  • After continuing problems with the EPDM roof, it became obvious to the owner's representative a roof replacement was needed in spite of budget limitations.
  • Our analysis reviled extensive deck damage to the underlying T & G decking and wood trusses to a point of collapse from the weight of the snow.
  • Having successfully completed a number of roof projects with SR Products, the district chose to utilize SR Products to be the basis of design. A modified bitumen system with hot asphalt adhesive was selected due to budget and cold weather limitations. Even with the limitations this difficult job was very successful.
  • Today, the School District can rest easy that all their equipment is protected from the elements for many years to come.
