Project Background

Client: ABC Manufacturing Co.

Location: AL

Building Type: Industrial Warehouse

Project Scope: Complete roof replacement

Roof Size: 50,000 square feet

Original Roof Type: Aging Built-Up Roofing (BUR)

Initial Consultation and Inspection | Finishing Solutions LLC

Initial Consultation and Inspection

The project began with an initial consultation and thorough inspection of the existing roof. ABC Manufacturing Co. had been experiencing frequent leaks and energy inefficiencies, which prompted them to seek a reliable roofing solution. Our team at Finishing Solutions LLC conducted a comprehensive assessment, identifying multiple issues with the aging BUR system, including:

  • Severe water damage and leaks

  • Cracks and blisters in the roofing material

  • Poor insulation leading to increased energy costs

Proposal and Planning

Based on our inspection findings, we recommended a complete roof replacement with a TPO (Thermoplastic Olefin) roofing system. TPO was chosen for its durability, energy efficiency, and ability to withstand climate. We provided a detailed proposal outlining the project scope, materials, timeline, and costs. The client approved our proposal, and we proceeded with the planning phase.

  • Material Selection: TPO was selected for its reflective properties and durability.

  • Project Timeline: The project was scheduled to minimize disruption to the client’s operations.

  • Budget: We worked within the client’s budget while ensuring high-quality materials and workmanship.

Preparation and Safety Measures

Prior to starting the roof replacement, we implemented rigorous safety measures to protect both our team and the client’s property. Our preparation included:

  • Setting up safety barriers and signage

  • Coordinating with the client to minimize impact on daily operations

Roof Replacement Process

Removal of Old Roof

The first step in the replacement process was the removal of the old BUR system. This involved:

  • Safely stripping away the old roofing materials

  • Inspecting the underlying structure for any damage

  • Repairing any structural issues to provide a solid foundation for the new roof

Installation of TPO Roofing System

With the old roof removed and the structure repaired, we began the installation of the new TPO roofing system. The process included:

  • Installing a new insulation layer to enhance energy efficiency

  • Laying down the TPO membrane and securing it with mechanical fasteners

  • Ensuring all seams were properly welded to prevent leaks

  • Installing edge metal and flashings for a finished, professional look
