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.
Two-ply torch (with FASTLap) vs. 2-ply ADESO self-adhered
The 2-ply ADESO self-adhered system required one less crew member and was installed in almost 2 hours less time than the torch-applied system — a 50 percent savings in labor.
Two-ply torch (with FASTLap) vs. Stick 1 Torch 1
The Stick 1 Torch 1 system saved the five-person crew one hour and ten minutes of time — a 30 percent savings in labor.
Two-ply torch (with FASTLap) vs. Velociflex
The Velociflex system, which offers protection in high wind zones, saved the 5-member team about 30 percent in labor costs
Stick 1 Torch 1 vs. 2-ply ADESO self-adhered
The 2-ply ADESO self-adhered system required one less crew member and saved the team a total of 47 minutes in installation time.
