AMC Theatre

AMC Theatre New Roof | WNC Roofing

AMC Theatre, Asheville North Carolina

Project Specifications:

  • Remove and dispose of existing membrane, edge metal and insulation
  • Shift existing gravel and save for re-use
  • Install 2.6” PolyISO insulation
  • Install new tapered crickets between drains and in front of HVAC units to eliminate ponding water
  • Install 33,700 sqft new Carlisle 60 Mil EPDM roof membrane per manufacture specification
  • Provide a 20-year Manufacturer’s Warranty

AMC Theatre is making some large upgrades to their facilities, including heated recliners and a new roof! Although the new roof will go unnoticed to movie goers, it was a much needed upgrade. 

Standing water is a major issue with large flat roofs. This is especially true in wet climates like Asheville North Carolina where we get an average of 41 inches of rain annually. Water wants to flow downward, so unless you provide it a way to flow off the roof, water will find any cracks, punctures, holes, etc.

The cricket system installed at AMC Theatre is intentionally moving water away from the points of weakness, such as the HVAC penetrations, and towards the intended target, the commercial grade sump drains. The new tapered crickets and 60 Mil EPDM membrane will ensure these high end facilities stay dry for years to come.

Hampton Park Baptist Church

Hampton Park Baptist Church | WNC Roofing

Hampton Park Baptist Church, Greenville SC

Project Specifications:

  • Remove and recycle existing gravel
  • Install 1/2" EPS coverboard
  • Install new expansion joints
  • Install 60 Mil Carlisle TPO per manufacture specification
  • Install new Pro Plus retro-fit roof drains.
  • Install TPO walk pads at HVAC unit access panels and at roof hatches.

An important upgrade in this project is the instillation of new retro-fit roof drains. 

At WNC Roofing, we do not skimp on quality when it comes to our materials. We chose Pro Plus with heavy duty aluminum clamping rings and strainers and a patented rubber gasket system engineered to provide a waterproof seal to the existing drain lines that will prevent water damage when drains become clogged or backed up.

 

Drains may not seem like a big deal but they are one of the most common reasons for roof leaks. Without a proper seal, a drain can lead water to the most vulnerable part of your roof, the insulation & cover board. Living in the South, your drain also needs to be able to handle large quantities of water in short periods of time.

Hire professionals who understand the materials, the environment, and your needs and you will save money in the long run.

What is a full taper and cricket package and why is it vital to the integrity of your flat roof?

Tapered insulation is used to create a slight slope on flat roofs to guide water to installed drains.

A cricket is a ridge structure made of tapered insulation and is used to divert water from areas that are prone to standing water, such as curbs for HVAC units, skylights and hatches. These curbs typically receive less sunlight so water will pond after a rainstorm.

Contact us today to learn more about the effects of ponding water on a flat roof and how your commercial building could benefit for our taper and cricket package.
