Five Below Distribution Center

Weather can always be a serious factor in new construction, especially at the critical roofing stage. So what do you do when, through a variety of delays, the roof installation doesn’t get underway until you are facing one of the coldest New Jersey winters in 10 years. . . and your bid called for completion before winter begins?

You call the experts, Firestone Building Products! That is exactly what Dave Bieber, owner of M. Pottegier, Inc., did, when he was faced with this situation. The 1,045,000 square foot distribution center had to be ready for tenant, Five Below, to be able to conduct business by June 2015. That left only 10 months for construction! Faced with the cold weather and the delays, Dave turned to his Firestone Sales Rep, Jeff Purvis for solutions. With the help of the builder, ARCO Design/Build Northeast, Inc, they presented Firestone’s new UltraPly™ TPO SA with Secure Bond™ Technology.

Though the crew had never installed it, they were willing to give it a try. With the help of Firestone’s on-site advisers, it didn’t take long to figure out. “We rolled the sheet out, put it into place, had two roofers on each side of it and loosened the contact film,” said Bieber. “They just started pulling it back. And as they did, the sheet laid into place. It took three or four minutes to run down that 100′ sheet. The looks on the guys’ faces were like, “Wow, this is pretty easy.”

UltraPly TPO SA with Secure Bond Technology can be installed in temperatures as low as 20°F. Another benefit is there is no need for glue. “Your don’t have any glue to mix or keep warm,” said Purvis. “It is easy and keeps the job site cleaner.” But the best benefit, is the time savings. Bieber sums up the results, “we could install more roof per day because we didn’t have to wait for the glue to dry.”

They say, in the roofing industry, that one of the highest compliments for a job is that the roof looks like it grew there – very flat, very uniform, no wrinkles or other imperfections. “When we look at the surface with the UltraPly TPO SA with Secure Bond Technology that is exactly what we see,” Bieber said proudly.
