Description: Removed existing gravel surfaced built-up roofing and insulation.

Installed new 1/8” tapered insulation and gypsum cover board in insulation adhesive.

Applied a multi-ply modified bituminous roof system with all plies set in cold application adhesive.

Flashed all duct support penetrations with new custom fabricated stainless steel flashings and hoods. All curbs were flashed with an elastomeric sheet. Perimeter walls received new stainless steel counter flashing and parapet walls were capped with factory fabricated painted aluminum components.

The entire roof and flashings were ultimately coated with two coats of white, reflective elastomeric coating. The roof assembly was installed in strict adherence with Factory Mutual Global requirements.
