Zenith Roofing and Waterproofing was the first roofing company to affiliate with Polyglass in Texas and has since become a Polyglass Quantum Contractor, proudly utilizing our products over the last 30 years. Harkinson Dewan Commercial contacted Zenith Roofing and Waterproofing to inspect and determine the best solution for their commercial property in Waco, Texas. It was decided that a re-roof was required, and Polyglass products were selected for the project.

Project Background

The client needed a complete tear-off and re-roof of their store building – an area of 88,700 square feet. The project called for a long-lasting roofing solution that the team could install quickly and efficiently while providing immediate waterproofing.

To meet this need, Zenith opted for a Polyglass’ “Stick 1-Torch 1” system, a hybrid 2-ply modified bitumen roofing system consisting of a self-adhered base sheet and a torch-applied cap sheet. This system is widely hailed for its ability to save time and labor during installation, providing immediate waterproofing protection during installation and offering multi-layer redundant protection once the installation is complete.

After tearing out the old roof and laying down a Polyboard E base layer, the Zenith team applied a self-adhered base layer of Elastoflex SA V, followed by a Polyflex® G torch-applied cap sheet. They finished with PolyFlash® 1C for the flashings and details.

According to Michelle Carson, Zenith Operations Coordinator, the project was completed without a hitch thanks to the ease of application and efficiency of the Stick 1-Torch1 system. “Our projects move seamlessly when working with Polyglass materials and products,” she shared.
