Retrofit Adds Thermal Protection for Steel Roof

Benchmark provides cost-effective EPS foam insulation

Retrofit Steel Roofs Uses Benchmark Foam EPS

When Protec Roofing & Sheetmetal of Watertown, S.D. retrofit a commercial roof that had multiple profile cuts of corrugated metal roof panels, it knew Benchmark Foam could not only accomplish the task, but would be willing to accommodate multiple deliveries according to installation plans.

Along with supplying the insulation, Benchmark Foam was familiar with the building as it was the original location of Energy Industries, which became Benchmark Foam in 1988. While operating out of the original facility, Benchmark added onto the building, with subsequent additions constructed after, resulting in different steel roof panels used to achieve the low slope roof.

Steel buildings built during this time are notoriously not well insulated and the most cost-effective way to retrofit and add thermal protection is using expanded polystyrene (EPS) foam insulation. The variable Midwestern climate caused expansion and contraction of the building, which attributed to the wear of the steel building. Benchmark EPS offers the optimum insulating value while allowing for the necessary profile cuts to ease installation.

The On Time Guarantee from Benchmark Foam aided the installation process, ensuring the product arrived by the agreed-to date. Benchmark works to accommodate customer needs and requests, such as delivering product in a specific arrangement or order. Experience the difference from a customer-focused Midwestern company. Benchmark Foam is committed to giving you unbeatable service and building a long-term relationship that will benefit your processes and your bottom line.
