Acts of Kindness

Screen Shot 2014-09-08 at 10.06.42 AM

Chase Construction NW, Inc. was featured in the August 2014 issue of the Professional Roofing Magazine’s featuring Contractors who have shown “Acts of Kindness” throughout their communities and around the world. In April of 2013 Melanie and Joel Beattie of Chase Construction NW, Inc. set out on a mission with a heart to serve those in need to provide love, hope,  encouragement and practical help to improve the quality of life for the orphaned children at Faith Village in Pang, Mapha Northern Thailand. Upon their stay Chase Construction NW, Inc. provided a brand new roof for the Canteen Building which provides shelter and a communal environment for the orphans of Faith Village. Below is the article featured in the Professional Roofing Magazine.

Faith in Thailand

Ten thousand miles away on the other side of the world, Joel Beattie, owner of Chase Construction North West Inc., Edgewood, Wash., visited Faith Village Children’s Home in northern Thailand. In an area where children are at high risk of being trafficked, Faith Village Children’s home provides a safe haven for children. The nonprofit organization is dedicated to rescuing, educating and giving hope to children in desperate need of help.

During Beattie’s visit, he undertook the project of installing a roof on the Canteen building, a structure that had been left without a roof for several years.

“We are so thankful for Beattie’s generosity,” says David Mahawon with the Faith Village Children’s Home. “The children have so enjoyed a place to play their games and hang out during the monsoon rainy season and Christmas. Beattie has a big heart, and we are so grateful for people like him.”

Fully Adhered TPO In Renton, WA.

Screws Or Glue? What Is The Difference?

If you are in the roofing industry it is more than likely you have installed a TPO flat roofing system before. However, the question that comes to mind when you are facing a flat roofing project requiring a TPO membrane is whether or not to go with fully adhered or mechanically attached! What is important is that you know the difference between the two to ensure you install the appropriate roofing system for the project to guarantee it withstands time and our environment.

Mechanically Attached

A mechanically-attached roofing system is a membrane roof that is attached to the substrate; i.e., wood, concrete, steel, etc., by mechanical means. This mechanical attachment could be with screws, concrete nails, augers, etc. The fastener used is almost entirely dependent upon the substrate (type of roof decking). Any insulation, substrate board, or cover board that is a part of the roofing assembly would also be attached into the building’s roofing substrate, either directly or indirectly by means of the direct attachment of the other, adjacent components. Often these “intermediary” components are attached independently of the roof membrane and are done with sufficient fasteners and in a specific pattern so as to achieve particular wind up-lift ratings, if such are required. The membrane roofing system is then installed on top of and through those intermediary components and into the roofing substrate. Since the insulation in a mechanically-attached system is attached separately and then is further secured indirectly when the membrane roof is installed, the number of fasteners required to “fasten” the insulation to the substrate is much lower than a fully-adhered roof.

 

Benefits

▪ Adaptable to unusual roof configurations

▪ High wind uplift performance

▪ Low material cost

▪ Lightweight

▪ Fast installation

 

 

Fully Adhered

A fully-adhered roofing system is a membrane roof that is attached to a roofing substrate indirectly using adhesives, which is just a fancy word for glue. Sometimes the roofing membrane is installed directly on top of the roofing substrate. But usually there is insulation and maybe even a coverboard that is also part of the assembly. If that is the case, then obviously the roof membrane is attached to the insulation (or cover board) instead of directly to the substrate. In such a scenario, the insulation (or cover board) may actually be mechanically-attached to the substrate first and then the roofing membrane is glued to the top of that. Let’s look at this a little more closely

 

Benefits 

• Aesthetically pleasing

• Proven system that has been installed for decades.

• No fluttering in the roof system

• Offers the best manufacturers wind ratings.

• Can be a quiet installation when paired with an olybond installation adhesives.

Chase Construction NW, Inc. Accepts the ALS #IceBucketChallenge!

Join The Fight!

ice-bucket-challenge-tw-user-cover-1024x341

 

As of Monday, August 25, The ALS Association has received $79.7 million in donations compared to $2.5 million during the same time period last year (July 29 to August 25). These donations have come from existing donors and 1.7 million new donors to The Association.

The ALS Association’s mission includes providing care services to assist people with ALS and their families through a network of chapters working in communities across the nation and a global research program focused on the discovery of treatments and eventually a cure for the disease. In addition, The Association’s public policy efforts empower people to advance public policies in our nation’s Capital that respond to the needs of people with ALS.

Quick Facts about ALS.

• Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), more commonly referred to as Lou Gehrig’s disease, is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that attacks nerve cells and pathways in the brain and spinal cord.  When these cells die, voluntary muscle control and movement dies with them.  Patients in the later stages of the disease are totally paralyzed, yet in most cases, their minds remain sharp and alert.

• Every day, an average of 15 people are newly diagnosed with ALS — more than 5,600 people per year. As many as 30,000 Americans may currently be affected by ALS. Annually, ALS is responsible for two deaths per 100,000 people.

• The average life expectancy of a person with ALS is two to five years from time of diagnosis.  With recent advances in research and improved medical care, many patients are living longer, more productive lives. Half of all those affected live at least three years or more after diagnosis.  About 20 percent live five years or more, and up to ten percent will survive more than ten years.

• ALS occurs throughout the world with no racial, ethnic, or socioeconomic boundaries.  ALS can strike anyone. Every single American is threatened by this disease.
