Charlotte Business Park gets a new V2T roof system
Flat roofs are subject to uplift pressure, which can result in membrane failure. The uplift pressure places stress on the fasteners, adhesives, roof ballast, and membrane. The V2T Vent technology can protect flat roofs from wind damage by using the power of the wind to hold roofs in place. The Charlotte Business Park was the perfect opportunity to install the roof system.
There comes a place in time where any roof is beyond repair
This building has been used as an office/warehouse for many years. The existing roof is a 25 year old single-ply and it has served its life. This roof has lots of damage due to maintenance traffic. It has been serviced by Radco for the last 15 years and is beyond repair. Now that the new tenant, Coca Cola is signing a multi-year lease, they will be putting money into the upfit of this building. Radco is using the V2T system to install the new roof system.
Out with the old before applying the new V2T roof system
This is a 13 day job due to the removal of old abandoned equipment that was being used for the office/warehouse. Our team will remove approx. 25 tons of old abandoned equipment to make it easier when laying down the new roof system. We will have to remove water pipes, 4 chillers and large structural steel during this process. Once the old abandoned equipment is removed, we will complete approximately 120 sqs a day. The V2T system will allow for a smoother installation as it involves a fraction of the screws and glues used in normal roofing systems.
How Coca Cola and other tenants will benefit from the new roof
The project was completed in the estimated installation time. Now that the new V2T roof has been installed, it will provide a 20 year lifetime warranty. Along with all other enhancements, the white reflective product will assist with cooling the building and protect the interior contents. The V2T roof system will continue to remove moisture from under the membrane keeping the insulation dry and effective. The new V2T roof system will make an ongoing contribution to an improved workplace environment.
