The gym at Highland Park High School in Amarillo, TX, needed an overhaul from top to bottom, and Coryell Roofing was thrilled to win the job in regards to the “top”!
Some roofing projects present engineering challenges, some encounter weather challenges. Occasionally there are material shortages and delays. Sometimes, you just get all of the above in the same week. It’s the measure of a roofing company to not only manage but crush such obstacles and deliver more than expected, in a little over 5 days.
The job required a complete tear-off, down to the joists – no easy task by itself. New acoustic decking and additional joist supports were installed, and then 5.2″ of polyiso insulation to exceed code, adding energy efficiency and noise isolation. A tapered system was added to aid in drainage and then a super-tough 1/2″ cover-board for serious hail protection – all mechanically fastened for extreme wind-lift resistance. Top it off with 80 mils of fully-adhered, highly reflective, white Duro-Fleece® PVC membrane from Duro-Last®, and you’ve got a roof that lives up to the Duro-Last® slogan, “World’s Best Roof”!
