      Improve Attic Ventilation

      Is your roof properly vented? Adequate roof ventilation reduces cooling bills, extends shingle life, and prevents roof rot and ice dams in winter.

      rain gutters protect the interior and exterior of your property they also reduce stress on your foundation by channeling water away from your home

      Value of Rain Gutters

      Without rain gutters, water running off your roof can enter your attic or the exterior walls of your home. Water drainage from the roof can also stain and damage your soffit, fascia as well as the siding or stucco.

The Granary in Elberta Utah

This was a project that presented some interesting challenges to us, as it had penetrations through the roof that Carlisle, the roof manufacturer, did not have any details for. Once again, we had to submit drawings to Carlisle for approval and then have the roof inspected on completion to ensure compliance with the drawings. A lot of custom work was done on this project. We also could not use any open flame, create any sparks or have metal shavings from screws drilling through metal falling into the grain bins as they were full at the time we installed the new roof.

If you have an industrial project, a factory or facility that has multiple roof penetrations that are going to be a challenge to re-roof, that would be a great project for us.

Installation and Materials

  1. We pressure washed the surface and allowed to dry. Unnecessary roof penetrations were eliminated and the roof was simplified as much as possible while still maintaining the function of the grain bin.
  2. A 135 mil reinforced TPO fleece-back plastic roof membrane installed, fully adhered to concrete decking. This membrane needed to withstand 90 mph winds and have a 30 year labor and material warranty issued by Carlisle.
  3. Seams were heat welded.
  4. Vent pipes were flashed with pre-manufactured jacks. All roof penetrations flashed with custom made flashing. Hand railings, electrical conduit penetrations, machinery supports, grain bin access hatches and all other penetrations were properly flashed.
  5. We Installed termination bar around perimeter of roof and Secured membrane over front face of concrete.
  6. Cut edge sealant was installed where needed. T patches and other flashing installed per manufacturer specifications.

We have done many of these types of roofs. We have researched the effects of chemicals on different types of roof membranes and can give suggestions for your application based on our experience. This is Doug Cooper with Far West Roofing Inc, thanks for reading our post.

Winds of 40 mph and Higher

On this project we contended with high winds. Often, the velocity of the wind at 110 feet above the ground is a lot higher than it is at ground level. This proved true in this instance and made life difficult at times as we had to contend with winds in excess of 40-mph. The project took longer than expected as a result of the high winds. However, we were happy with the outcome of this project and show case it on our blog for your review. The roof passed the inspection from Carlisle and is serving it’s owner well.
