Carlisle SynTec Systems

Get Fleeced

EPDM roofing systems can be specified with a 55-mil fleece layer adhered as a backing for long-term protection against high winds, hail and punctures. These FleeceBack membranes are also well-suited for roof gardens and solar applications and can be installed with Flexible FAST adhesive, which reinforces the fleece for increased protection.


EPDM Roofing System Provides Durability for Freemasons

The Freemason lodge in Indianapolis, known as Millersville Lodge No. 126, first convened in 1852 in the home of one of its members. The current temple—the building where the masonic lodge meets—was constructed in 1925. Over the years, the Freemason lodge has seen many construction improvements and restorations. While the lodge has tried to maintain as much of the original building materials as possible, some of the building elements have deteriorated over the years, not the least of which was the roofing system, which has been replaced more than once.By 2017, the lodge trustees began considering enhancements to their existing Carlisle SynTec Sure-Seal 60-mil EPDM roofing system w

West Springfield High School, West Springfield, Mass.

Timing Was Everything

With at least 20 different elevation levels, the 146,000-sq.-ft. roof of the new West Springfield High School in West Springfield, Mass., posed some serious timing challenges for both installers and construction managers. Interior contractors couldn’t do finish work until the roof in those areas was watertight, so roofing schedules had to be closely coordinated with other trades. Using DensDeck Roof Board, topped by VapAir Seal 725TR self-adhered air and vapor barrier membrane, provided the necessary waterproofing and allowed interior work to progress while remaining roofing components, including the finishing layer of Sure-Flex PVC membrane, to be installed at their own pace.


Middle School Makes Roof Right

Wright City Middle School’s roof system was failing—but this unique solution helped the Missouri school ‘recover.’ Installed in 2004, the standing seam metal roof at the Wright City Middle School, Wright City, Mo., was comprised of eight roof areas of various elevations with a 4/12 pitch and decorative dormers. By 2014, something had to be done about the failing roof system, but, due to time constraints and the environmental cost of demolition and disposal, tearing off the existing roof was not an option. Building aesthetics, proper insulation and waterproofing were top of mind on the Wright City Middle School roofing retrofit.
