Kelly Roofing is one of the first in the United States to use induction welding. This computer-driven fastening machine results in higher wind resistance than other mechanically attached roof systems. It also saves labor because it requires fewer screws than other systems. You may be unfamiliar with induction welding, but once you learn of its benefits, you will want to consider it for your next roof replacement project.
At Kelly Roofing we are always improving customer service, efficiency and roof replacement methods. Duro-Last produces excellent single-ply PVC (polyvinyl chloride) membranes to provide water resistance, high reflectance and maximum energy efficiency for Florida roofs. With induction welding, we install Duro-Last membrane over standard insulation or roof decking, but with a few innovations using the RhinoBond® system from OMG.
The RhinoBond® system includes metal plates that act as giant washers beneath the roof screws. The plates are both magnetic and electrically conductive. Duro-Last quality membrane is rolled out over the insulation, and then something amazing happens.
An induction welder produces enough heat to fuse the metal plate beneath the membrane to the membrane itself. It is not simply glued; the two materials join so completely, you would have a difficult time prying them apart. The result? Your membrane is not chemically adhered to your roof; it is adhered on a molecular level. Heavy magnetic heat sinks then dissipate the heat, forcing the materials together without reducing the membrane’s strength.
In the Naples area, a major concern with any commercial roof replacement is wind uplift. The induction welding process used by Kelly Roofing joins your roof elements so completely, every square foot of roof can be subjected to up to 210 pounds per square foot of pressure without allowing the fused pieces to come apart.
This innovative method of adhering Duro-Last roofing to Naples-area commercial roofs is not only a huge advantage in the face of hurricane-strength winds, it is an enormous labor saver. Your roof replacement is completed faster, with cleaner lines, a smooth surface, and no membrane fastener penetrations. Result?
