First Baptist Church - Tuscaloosa, AL
The reroofing involved the installation of 6,810 sq. ft. of new dimensional asphalt shingles over one layer of existing shingles on tectum roof deck. Special fasteners were used due to the type and age of the roof deck. The existing copper lining in the limestone gutters was replaced with a 45 mil. TPO membrane and new copper facia. A second 5,910 sq. ft. portion of the building with an existing built-up roof system was reroofed with a new 45 mil. TPO roof system. The TPO membrane was extended over the existing deteriorating masonry parapet and capped with a new prepainted aluminum cap.
