Save Time and Labor

Saving time means saving money! Self-adhered roofing technology offers contractors safer, cleaner installations, and significant savings in labor costs. To demonstrate these labor savings, Polyglass U.S.A., Inc. conducted a series of time trials that compare the installation times of various roof system configurations. In the time trial videos, Polyglass set up identical conditions for the roofing teams to apply a roofing system to a 1000-square-foot panel. The videos show the step-by-step process for each roofing installation in the time trial and offer side-by-side comparisons of the results.
