Duro-Last Duro-Bond Roofing System installed on New England warehouse

Breault Roofing created a way to make the installation process more efficient by requesting mostly tabless sheets and fastening the membrane with induction welding to the purlins instead of a regular mechanically fastened system onto the pan.

When one of New England’s premier manufacturing representative agencies purchased a new warehouse, it was clear from the beginning that the building’s existing standing seam roof needed to be replaced before the necessary internal improvements could begin.

The 27,500 square foot building purchased by EDOS Manufacturers’ Reps, Inc. was an existing metal structure with a standing seam metal roof that was severely rusted. The metal pan yielded pull test values of only 180 lbs., which is pushing the lower margin of acceptability by both industry and Duro-Last® engineering standards.

Building owner and President, Robert Os, hired authorized Duro-Last contractor, Breault Roofing of New Bedford, MA, to explore possible solutions. After considering the advantages of each system, Os decided to install the Duro-Last Duro- Bond® Roofing System. This system was viewed as the best option because of key features that set Duro- Last apart from the rest, such as the ability to custom-fabricate the membrane in house; providing edge-to- edge solutions including metals; Duro-Guard® insulation options, and offering a superior warranty.

Thanks to Duro-Last’s custom-fabrication process, the PVC sheets were custom engineered and manufactured to fit this specific project. Being an innovative Duro-Last contractor, Breault Roofing created a way to make the installation process more efficient by requesting mostly tabless sheets and fastening the membrane with induction welding to the purlins instead of a regular mechanically fastened system onto the pan.

“Purlin fastening meant the Duro-Bond plates were in straight lines. This simplified the installation and allowed the crew to work more quickly and efficiently,” said Scott Bieber, Duro-Last Business Development Manager.

 

 

Upon working with Duro-Last customer service and engineering services teams, Duro-Last was able to provide the contractor with the custom-fabricated tabless sheets with the addition of ridge tabs and eave tabs as requested. This resulted in a timely and efficient metal retrofit that used 10,000 less screws than normally required.

Despite taking place in December in Massachusetts, EDOS office manager, Lori Hamelin said, “There were no issues with business operations. Everything went rather smooth and we were able to stay open.” Os added to this by saying that, “The entire project was extremely well done and quick! The people installing it were great and the entire process was seamless.” Both Os and Hamlin also said they are likely to choose a Duro-Last Roofing System again in the future.
