After years of expansion and growth with new additions and equipment, a large auto parts manufacturer knew it was time to look after its original plant building.

A roof replacement program, which properly addressed and prioritized leaks and an aging roof system, provided the client with the assurance needed. The roof replacement program ensured that a proper and comprehensive plan was put in place to address critical roof deficiencies first and allowed for accurate costing.


  • Provide a safe and dry work environment.

  • Limit damage occurring to existing steel deck.

  • Create a plan to remediate the failing roofs of the large facility.


With many aging roofs over the original plant footprint, the client was unsure of how best to tackle a seemingly insurmountable problem.  With minimal knowledge of flat roofing, the client turned to Tektum for assistance.

Meeting with the client several times allowed us to communicate the proper approach needed for these aging roofs:

  • Assess existing roofs.
  • Determine the extent of water infiltration through thermographic infrared scans.
  • Strategically plan with the client critical areas within their plant.
  • Develop a projected 5-year roof replacement program.
  • Initiate and execute the plan through proper design and bidding processes.
  • Update the plan as required.

Careful listening, detailed assessments, meticulous planning, and clear communication allowed Tektum to provide this client with a customized approach to solve their roofing concerns.
