  • 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. 

    Travis Roofing Supply is located just north of the Vandeventer/44 in the old RSG Roofing Building

    Old is the New Green–Video House Tour

    Transcript
    Matt: [at front of old Victorian house] Hi, I'm Matt Grocoff, the green renovation expert for Old House Web and host of greenovation.tv and this is my house.  So when my wife Kelly and I first bought this 110 year old folk Victorian house, it was a dream come true: it had lead paint, asbestos siding, zero insulation and even an old gas powered lawn mower out in the shed.  What more can anybody ask for.
    Matt: [in living room] So on move in day we brought two things with us:  a crowbar to rip up all the old carpet and a box of compact fluorescent light bulbs.  We replaced every light socket in this house with compact fluorescents and then we added motion sensors to every light switch in the house.  We leave a room, if we forget to turn it off, it turns it off for us.
    Matt: [in bathroom] So at the start of our renovation project, this was the only bathroom in the house.  It was fantastic.  It had pink Formica tiles, an old flush toilet that flushed 5 gallons every time.  This is a Caroma Dual Flush Toilet which only uses .8 gallons every flush and unlike our old toilet never clogs.  But not only have we made it look great, but we've made it way more energy efficient.
    This is a 1-minute a gallon showerhead.  This is going to use a gallon and a half a minute less than an ordinary showerhead.  This will literally save thousands of gallons over its lifetime.
    Matt: [backyard drilling for geothermal] I can't tell you how many times I've heard people say "I thought you couldn't put geothermal into a historic house."  Well this house proves that wrong.  We were able to put three 150-foot bore holes vertically into the back yard on a very small piece of property.  Not only do we have a heating and cooling system that uses half the energy of our neighbors, we have a house that's a whole lot more comfortable. 
    Matt: [in living room] We're out to prove that old houses can be the Greenest houses. In fact, with all the renovations we've done so far, we've made this house ultra efficient and we've got a ways to go.  We're going to take this house all the way to Net Zero.  Meaning it's going to produce more energy than it uses.
    Matt: [at the computer] So you eco geeks, get ready to get geeked out because this is our WattVision Google Power Meter.  And this will tell us how much energy we're consuming at any given moment.  If everyone knew how much energy they were using, they would probably use a lot less.  [I'm coming to get you, I got you, I got you] Before we get the solar panels up on the roof, you can see we've got a lot of work to do.
    Matt: [pointing to house exterior] We've got to paint the house, restore these old windows, then top it off with some really energy efficient storm windows.  My daughter Jane will probably still be alive when this house turns 200 years old.  So restoring America's old homes is not just about preserving history, it's about protecting our future.   So for Old House Web, this is Matt Grocoff reminding you that, "The Green Revolution Begins at Home"

    Client Reduced Yearly Energy Use Update

    StLouis, MO Scotts Contracting, St Louis Renewable Energy, 6032 s kingshighway, St. Louis Links to this post

    A 68.6% decrease in energy use since the Energy Conservation Upgrades- was just shared to me from a past StLouis Homeowner-Client. 

    Clearly reflected by the yearly reduced energy needs in the photo of the monthly electric bill! 

    Proof positive $1 spent earns $2 in energy savings!

    Here are a few of the bigger changes made:

    Energy Star Refrigerator your fridge runs 24-7, 365.

    Energy Star Dual Pane Windows

    Air Sealing Doors, Gaps and Cracks

    LED Lighting and fixture upgrades

    Zoned Heating System

    I'd also like to mention that the household is now actively recycling in their daily affairs!

    This clients reduced energy use is something that everyone in StLouis and downwind from Amerens coal plants should also appreciate. 

    This reduction in pollution was a deciding factor in the energy conservation measures and underlying reasons for the Energy Star measures taken.

    If you want to save money and reduce pollution let me by sending me a message and together We Can Build a Green StLouis. Scotty
