Quick response delivers same-day order more than 250 miles 

EPS foam crickets and saddles used on roof decks to achieve proper drainage.

When a crew from a loyal Benchmark Foam customer, Twin City Roofing, ran into a drainage issue on a jobsite, they called the experienced Benchmark Foam team for a quick response. The two quickly came to a solution – a custom drainage cricket, made of expanded polystyrene (EPS), to help divert water to the appropriate drain. 

Crickets are a tapered design product that are used on structurally sloped roof decks to avoid water ponding on roofs that can cause further damage. Installing crickets helps promote positive water flow from the roof while maintaining a stable room temperature too. 

The other issue was the roofing crew needed the materials that same day – and the jobsite was 250 miles away from Benchmark Foam’s manufacturing facility in Watertown, S.D. Following its quick response guarantee, the Benchmark Foam team was able to produce the materials and deliver to the jobsite destination by the end of the day.
