Taking Roof Repair to New Heights
The roof being 100 feet in the air in downtown Nashville only further complicated the problem – with the roof taking more stress from city wind-tunnel effect and the difficulty in accessing the roof for repair or replacement. A solution was needed that would secure the roof against unpredictable winds and that could be installed quickly and effectively with minimal disruption to surrounding streets for cranes and other equipment.
Fortunately, this is precisely the type of situation in which the V2T roof system excels. Because it does not require excessive fasteners and adhesives, the system installs fast – in this case, the job was completed in 2 days once work began.
Coordinating the project was also an exacting task, as there was no available staging area to store roofing and construction materials in the downtown Nashville area. In fact, there was a very narrow, very specific window of time (between 8 am and 10 am) that materials could be delivered with necessary permissions for a crane to lift materials to the roof height.
