  • I've found that making a simple and quick graphic image to use as a visual tool to explain a building system repair to a client is easier when I provide a "non technical" image of the proposed work to be done.
  • Why GAF EverGuard® TPO
    • Outperforms standard TPO in heat aging and UV tests—the best predictors of TPO performance
      - Independent TPO Study proves EverGuard® TPO 60 mil Membrane is the best standard TPO in accelerated aging. View the key findings and full study here.
      - After accelerated heat aging at 275°F (135°C) for 112 days, EverGuard® TPO showed no cracking—while every one of the competitors’ samples had failed!
      - UV testing—Greater than 2.5 times the industry standard (ASTM D6878 weather resistance test)
    • Guarantees are available up to 25 years when using EverGuard® TPO 60 mil Membrane.*
    • Easier to install due to:
      - Large welding window
      - Most complete line of accessories
      - 10' (3.05 m) wide sheets





  • DESCRIPTION STRUCTODEK HD is not only an integral roofing system component; it also makes roofing easier with physical properties that generate structural rigidity and dimensional stability. The wood fiberboard composition of STRUCTODEK HD possesses natural bonding qualities, resulting in superior adhesion capabilities. Adhesive tightly grasps the fibers of STRUCTODEK HD without causing excess absorption, providing a solid and secure roof system which bonds very well with many asphalt, coal tar, and cold-process adhesive products. The lightweight nature of STRUCTODEK HD is better than heavier alternatives and will keep the roof load below the specified maximum weight. Source

    Kevin at Travis Roofing Supply was a great help in outlining the proper materials and needed prep to ensure the TPO roofing will meet and exceed the expectations of the Investment Property Owner plus the 25 year product guarranty.

    Ensuring Success StLouis Small Biz Energy Efficiency Design Build Project

    In todays day and age of small business enterprises I rarely find that a local St Louis area small business is actually thriving.  And when I learned that this successful small business needs to expand to meet the needs of her growing business I was more than happy to assist her in making her business a continued success by utilizing proven advanced energy efficient construction techniques for this Attic Conversion.

    "Proper Design Build Energy Conservation Techniques used in this project will ensure that this business owner will keep the energy costs low and comfort levels high-Scotty,Scotts Contracting"

    Here is behind the scene work on the Design Build Energy Efficiency-Attic Conversion and the Small Business Customer Must Haves for the project and how I am going to convert the unused attic space into a functional and energy efficient design build project that meets and exceeds the clients requests


    Here are the clients Must Haves:
    • Energy Efficient Design (part1)
    • Open Floor Plan (part 2)
    • Kid Sized Plumbing Fixtures located in the Bathroom (part 3)
    • 1 Sink located outside the Bathroom with Extra Counter-space (part 3)
    • Flooring options require materials that do not transfer sound and are easy clean up (part 4)
    • No Harmful VOC Building Products (part 4)
    • Cost Effective (part 4)
    • Financing this Small Business Success Story Design Build Project (part 5)

    Designing for Energy Efficiency
    Since this project will be in the top floor of a two story building special attention was given to ensure that proper levels of insulation are utilized as well as eliminating air leakage.  


    Here is a CAD drawing of the planned Ceiling and modifying the existing Roof Construction that addresses building code requirements for energy efficient design and construction.

    Three Main Aspects: Natural Air Flow, R49 Ceiling Insulation, and Air Tight Electrical Junction Box Covers
    Three Main Aspects of proper ceiling construction for energy efficiency: (1)Natural Air Flow, (2) R49 Ceiling Insulation, and (3) AirTight Electrical Junction Box Covers

    In the above photos you see that Natural Air Flow is mentioned numerous times.  The importance of natural air flow-is not only suggested it is required by the new building codes that are slowly being adopted and utilized in today's energy efficient building designs.

    What gets me is that why some builders leave out this crucial step.  Its not a new concept and one that I learned in my first year of Drafting classes in 1989 while designing my final year Residential Home Drafting Project.  

    What this natural air flow does is keep the upstairs cooler in the summer and is needed to assist in eliminating ice dams during the winter.

    Rule of Thumb for determining this natural air flow from eve to roof peak is: 1 square inch for every square foot of space.  

    This 1 square inch is then divided equally in half between the top and bottom of the building.  In the case of this building we will be using: Soffit Vent as well as Roof Peak Vent and to ensure there is unobstructed air travel Air Baffles will be utilized in the areas where the insulation contacts the underside of the roof.

    Never let a Building Contractor neglect this important step in any of your building projects.

    Stay Tuned for Part 2 of the Design process where I address the open floor plan.

    #DesignBuild Energy Efficiency-Attic Conversion

    My next Design Build Project will be converting this unused attic into Energy Efficient and usable 2nd Floor Space.   

    We will be performing major Energy Conservation Build Techniques as well as using Advanced FramingMethods on this Green Build Project 

    Upon completing we will have the following RValues: R19+ in the wall, R49 Attic, R13+ in the Floor. 

    My plans also call for Air Tight Electrical Junction Box Covers in the Attic as well as 6mil Poly Air Barrier for the Interior Walls. 

    Stay Tuned for more project photos as well as otherCAD Drafting details by Scotty-Scotts Contracting . 

    Build Green Scotty!
