Custom Tapered Roofing Insulation over EPDM Membrane
This building still had its original built-up asphalt and gravel roof in place. Subsequently it had been covered over with new insulation and a new fully adhered EPDM membrane roof. Over time the EPDM roof had become un-adhered from the insulation, and large areas were only held in place with buckets filled with water and sand, which is not only a hazard to workers who may need to walk on the roof, but dangerous to people below should the buckets accidentally roll off the roof. High winds were causing additional areas of the existing roof membrane to blow off the insulation.
Scope of Work – EPDM Membrane Installation
To accommodate the schedule, set by the client, that no work should occur during the busy summer months and vacation weeks, Chaffee had to:
Once again Chaffee’s crews were up to the task on this difficult and exacting project. By creating a custom tapered insulation system, Chaffee insured that the roof had adequate drainage to eliminate standing water on the roof after a rain storm, or during melting snow. In addition, for the future work crews, who will have to work on HVAC units on the roof new walk pads were put into the design, for both the safety of that crew, as well as the continued health of the roof.
