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.

60 Mil TPO roof membrane, fully adhered per manufacture specifications.

Why do we use TPO?

The current membrane formulations are reinforced with a polyester fabric and manufactured using an ultraviolet-resistant thermoplastic polyolefin formulation.

TPO roofing uses hot-air welding technology to thermally bond field and flashing seams; the welded seam eliminates the problems associated with traditional seam adhesives. TPO membrane roof systems have higher reflectivity values. They are available in white, gray and tan colors to minimize the amount of heat gain from direct exposure to the sun. Up to 30-year warranties are available.
