  • Roof Details
    • Existing roof – SPF foam roof over Hot Asphalt roof
  • Unique Challenges
    • SPF roof was applied 20 years ago, did not have a quality coating on it. This caused the SPF to breakdown in some areas, water became trapped between layers
    • Roof did not have proper slope for the SPF system, causing severe ponding and water infiltration
    • Active bowling alley- Care had to be taken to tear off not more than we could cover in a day. Crew worked until 12:00 midnight one night to get it done. Whatever it takes,,
    • Multiple leaks
    • Decking was rusted in some areas
    • Roof did not enough drains
  • Solution
    • Due to the poor condition of the roof, a complete tear off was needed
    • Existing roof was 5” thick, making for a lot of tear off labor
    • We replaced 2000 square feet of rusted decking
    • We installed a predesigned Tapered Insulation System to eliminate the ponding water
    • We installed 6 new roof drains, hired a plumber to run new PVC drain lines to the grade
    • We installed Conklin’s PVC single Ply, Flexion, attached to the roof deck with screws, all seams were heat welded
