Problems & Solutions: Roof Structure Improvement on Washington Church

St. Paul Episcopal’s Church in Kennewick WA, built in 1958,  had an existing roof that was built using a rough timber construction in an unorthodox accordion style which caused issues with the roof’s shear strength and that lack of shear allowed for a lot of movement resulting in roof leaks.  They had a problem and needed a solution!

PROBLEM: Roof had structural integrity, insulation and leaking issues

SOLUTION:  Remove the existing roofing, add Premier SIPs and metal roof.  5,328 sq ft of 8″ roof panels were used

OUTCOME: Significantly increased the structural characteristics while adding substantial insulation value to the building; not to mention a stable roof is easier to keep from leaking.
