Case Study: Beds for Kids
Supporting the Community with Simple, Solid Solutions.
Providing furniture for at-risk children and families requires having a large number of furnishings available – but those furnishings have to be kept safe from weather. So when the 11,000-square-foot warehouse for Beds for Kids started suffering from numerous leaks, the facility needed to solve the problem. However, when they found out a full roof replacement was necessary, they simply didn’t have the funds available for that level of work.
As part of their mission to provide beds and furniture for families in need, The Beds for Kids organization maintains an 11,000 square-foot warehouse in Charlotte, NC. Unfortunately, the facility had been experiencing multiple roof leaks, which could potentially damage or limit the furnishings available for the children and families the non-profit business serves.
Making the problem even more challenging was discovering upon inspection, that simple roof repairs would not solve the ongoing leaks at the warehouse. An entirely new roof would be needed – something that Beds for Kids could simply not afford. Thankfully, Radco Roofing, a long-time partner of V2T stepped in with a donation of materials and labor to offset the costs of the total roof replacement. Their choice of roof-venting-systems, of course, was V2T.
Along with a donation from Carlisle for the roofing membrane, Radco was able to keep costs at a minimum thanks to V2T – and its quick installation that requires fewer man hours than other venting systems. V2T also allowed Radco and Beds for Kids to save on the costs of adhesive, fasteners, and other bulky ballast and other materials simply not needed as part of the V2T installation. Through innovation and streamlined design and performance, an organization in need was able to continue serving at-risk families and children – without having to divert an excessive amount of much-needed funds towards an unexpected roof replacement.
In general we believe that the V2T Vent Technology has a significant advantage in performance, installation, monitoring, environmental stewardship and cost than any other system on the market. To date, we have millions of square feet of roof in all climates that is providing these benefits to contractors, building owners, and manufacturers across the country.
