The Minneapolis Branch of Western Specialty Contractors installed a Carlisle Fleece Back roofing system on the newly constructed Parkside Lofts Building. The system was chosen because the roof had to be installed during the winter months.
The 7,000 square foot roof deck was coated with standard type 4 roofing asphalt. A glass felt was embedded in the bitumen. Another mopping of hot asphalt was applied and the fleece back sheet was rolled into the hot material.
The entire roof was completed in one and a half days. Time was saved using this system because there was no down time waiting for roofing membrane adhesives to cure.
