New Roof Construction
Whether there’s a formal bid package and specifications or not, D. C. Taylor Co. will use its 60+ years of experience to develop the project (once approved), perform roof construction, ensure integration with other building envelope elements, and close out the project by delivering the manufacturer warranty, as-built detail drawings, and owner/operation usage and maintenance and care information.
Roof Asset Management
Having a Roof Asset Management program allows those responsible for roofing the ability to anticipate short- and long-term roof maintenance, repair, and replacement activities and the potential costs associated with each. D. C. Taylor Co. identifies all the roof area names, as well as square footage, types of roof assemblies, and condition of each roof area. From the information gathered, a plan and budget are created to meet the customer’s short- and long-term roofing objectives.
This service determines and evaluates the cause of water leakage within industrial and commercial facilities. Once information about past roof services and the frequency and location of the leaks is gathered, crews evaluate the condition of the leak area. From that evaluation, a hypothesis about the source of the leak is formed, and possibly tested. The evaluation results are reported to the customer along with recommendations to remedy the leak.
Solar Panel Cleaning
Cleaning ensures peak performance and maximizes energy production, as well as complies with many solar panel manufacturers’ warranties. D. C. Taylor Co.’s solar panel cleaning service includes a visual inspection of the PV system as well as surrounding roof conditions, cleaning the panels with 100-percent biodegradable cleaning agents, and inspecting the completed work.
Roof restoration activities include visually inspecting the roof, completing a peel test, and determining what preparation is required in advance of the coating application. Most roofing systems consist of two or more coating applications; reinforcement fabric can be embedded into the coating. Industry standard roof restoration warranties range from five to 10 years and can cover material and labor.
Fall Hazard Survey
D. C. Taylor Co.’s Fall Hazard Survey service identifies potential fall hazards and provides recommendations to mitigate exposures. It inventories the roof and identifies the condition of components that pose a risk, as well as any existing passive fall protection, fall arrest, or fall restraint systems already in place. Customers are provided a roof plan identifying the location and type of recommended permanent fall protection systems, as well as shop drawings.
Construction & Demolition Waste Management
D. C. Taylor Co. will execute its Construction and Demolition Waste Management Plan. Ideal for customers striving to reduce the environmental impact of the roofing project, the process for selective demolition and waste removal ensures that the materials are being placed in the correct location and in the correct form (e.g. tethered down in bundles eight feet high).
Daylighting Skylight Installation
Daylighting skylights increase interior illumination levels, which can reduce the need for artificial lighting. Installing daylighting skylights requires cutting and opening the existing roofing and structural decking. This necessitates selective demolition and understanding of roof deck characteristics and attachment requirements. Once the skylight is installed, new insulation and roofing flashings are installed around the skylight curb.
A roof plan can be useful when directing people working on the roof, identifying roof deficiencies, tracking capital projects, and pinpointing safety hazards. Using a standard process, D. C. Taylor Co. photographs, measures, and sketches, as well as details the roof, roof perimeter, and projections. The field data is converted by a D. C. Taylor Co. CAD technician to a digital roof plan and cross-section detail drawings with measurements are provided in a CAD or PDF file format.
