Location: InfoTouch Corporation on San Pedro Ave in San Antonio, Texas
Date of Project: March 2018
Type of Project: Total Roof Replacement
Type of Roof Removed: Shingles, Tar & Gravel
Type of Roof Installed: Shingles, Modbit
Total Square Feet Replaced: 12,900
Warranty on this project: Varies by material
Scope: This project involved tearing off 77 squares of shingles, re-decking, and re-shingling with 30-year architectural shingles. It also involved spudding up 52 squares of tar & gravel, repairing substrate, and installing gray torch-down modified bitumen.
The sloped portions of the roof had shingles over wood shakes. We stripped off all layers down to the wood laths (to which the wood shakes were attached). We then decked the roof, applied underlayment, ice & water, etc, and re-shingled.
The rear portion of the building has a flat roof that had tar and gravel surface, which we removed. In this pic we’ve already removed the old roof material and have started applying the new torch-down roofing material. For comparison, the building in the immediate foreground (very bottom of pic) has tar & gravel.
Like many flat roof systems,this area was cluttered with air-handling systems, ductwork, pipes, vents, conduit, and more, as you can see in the photo. Each obstacle presents a small challenge when applying any roofing material, but our crews are amazing. They worked together, often needing to squeeze under ducts, to get the job done.
The end result:
