Sarnafil Rhinobond Roof Treasured by Jasper "Pirates"
When your team is named the Pirates, you aren’t likely to take any gruff from anyone or anything. That’s why the Jasper School District in Arkansas decided to go for only the best when they wanted to replace the 25-year-old roof on Jasper High School. RhinoBond secures the membrane directly to specially coated plates that are used to secure the insulation to the deck, all without penetrating the roofing membrane. The result is a roofing system with improved wind performance that requires 25 to 50 percent fewer fasteners and plates.

No Shivering "Timbers"
Installation involved tearing off the built-up roof, replacing the decking, filling in some skylights, putting on a tapered insulation system and also filling the flutes of the metal roof with recovery board. Then the Sarnafil membrane was installed with RhinoBond induction welding. The job was not without challenges, however. One was the summer heat, including days when the temperature went over 100 degrees. There were also two long interior gutters and interior drains that were replaced, as well as downspouts, fascia and soffits. In addition, much of the HVAC and electrical systems were being renovated, and the HVAC equipment had not been braced correctly when they were installed
A Roof to Treasure
Despite some very heavy downpours since it was installed, Cantrell says the new roof is “performing flawlessly” and he expects it to continue to perform well in the future. “We are very happy with the results and with Freedom Roofing,” he explained. “These folks come in and do exactly what they say they will do.”“I was very impressed with this installation and would not hesitate to recommend the Sarnafil RhinoBond system to another client,” Boone said. Sounds like a roof even a pirate could love.
