Self-adhered technology offers time and labor savings, and we have the demonstrations to prove it.

Did you know that you can save up to 50% of labor costs or 47 minutes on a project with  Polyglass self-adhered technology? The Polyglass team conducted a series of time trial demonstrations to compare the installation times of various roof system configurations. We set up identical conditions for the roofing teams to apply a roofing system to a 1000-square-foot panel in these time trial videos. The videos show the step-by-step process for each roofing installation in the time trial and offer a side-by-side comparison of the results so you can see the labor and time-saving benefits of self-adhered technology first hand.

These time trial videos compared:

⏱ Two-ply torch (with FASTLap) vs. 2-ply ADESO self-adhered

Result: 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

Result: The Stick 1 Torch 1 system saved the five-person crew one hour and ten minutes — a 30 percent savings in labor.

⏱ Stick 1 Torch 1 vs. 2-ply ADESO self-adhered

Result: The 2-ply ADESO self-adhered system required one less crew member and saved the team a total of 47 minutes in installation time.

⏱ Two-ply torch (with FASTLap) vs. VelociflexTwo-ply torch (with FASTLap) vs. Velociflex

Result: The Velociflex system, which offers protection in high wind zones, saved the 5-member team about 30 percent labor costs.

What could you do with 50% labor cost saving or an extra 47 minutes per project?
