A Sustainable Workforce Starts With You

Does One Eighth of an Inch Really Matter?

Hi there. The Chamberlin Man here.

Cupid just launched his arrows and the leprechaun will follow closely behind.  Good thing we have these fellas to remind us of the season because Mother Nature seems a bit discombobulated lately.

One day we're literally freezing and the next it's a sunny 70.  We've gone from ice skating along our highways to rain boots in a matter of a few hours.  The ever-changing temperature has been wreaking havoc on our lives of late.  Less visibly apparent, but a challenge all the same, is the pressure this crazy weather is having on our roofing and building envelope systems.

As the temperatures fluctuate, the materials in the building envelope expand and contract.  If such extremes aren't accounted for in construction, problems are likely to occur.  Metal systems incorporated into the roof can be very unforgiving.

Does your roof system have what it takes to withstand these highs and lows?  An eighth of an inch can make all the difference.  Want to know for sure?  Contact the crew at Chamberlin to do an evaluation.  You can also find out more in this article by Robert J. Boessen, Senior Roof Consultant/Project Manager at Terracon Consultants: Are you concerned about 1/8th of an inch?

Until next time, I'll be seeing you around.
