Chandler's Roofing Receives the IB Roof Systems 500,000 Sq. Foot Club Award

In many cases we have been able to double or triple the life of a commercial or residential roof while saving the property owner thousands of dollars in future energy costs.

San Pedro, CA (PRWEB) August 21, 2013

Since 1942, Chandler’s Roofing has remained at the forefront of modern roofing applications in Los Angeles and Orange County. As other companies have remained focused on archaic roofing systems such as hot-mopped, built-up roofs (BUR), Chandler’s Roofing has long retired their roofing kettles and moved almost entirely to modern, single-ply PVC roofing membranes for residential and commercial flat roofs. These Title 24 compliant, Energy Star rated cool roofs, combined with modern PV solar powered energy systems have not only saved Chandler’s clients in Los Angeles and Orange County thousands of dollars in energy costs, but have also extended the life cycle of hundreds of roofs, outlasting alternative roofing applications by nearly 2 to 3 times.

Single-ply roofing, such as IB Roof Systems provides competitive advantages to property owners including industry leading warranties, high solar reflectance characteristics, unparalleled life cycle costs and ease of maintenance. These IB Roof Systems are hot-air welded or applied with adhesives, eliminating the need for hot tar kettles and open flames which are a liability. With a Class “A” fire rating and uniquely formulated to withstand ponding water, the IB Roof Systems that Chandler’s Roofing is installing are truly cutting-edge with a performance history second-to-none.

“We are committed to being Southern California’s leading roofing company when it comes to warranties, performance, sustainability and quality. Several years ago we made the decision to get away from hot-mop roofing which does not have the performance characteristics and longevity that single-ply roofing applications such as IB Roof Systems have,” commented Trevor Leeds, president of Chandler’s Roofing. “In many cases we have been able to double or triple the life of a commercial or residential roof while saving the property owner thousands of dollars in future energy costs.”

In June, Chandler’s Roofing was awarded the 500,000 square foot Club Award from IB Roof Systems for the outstanding performance in sales and installations that Chandler’s Roofing has accomplished over the last several years. It is a select group of certified installers who are even trained and allowed to install IB Roof Systems and even a smaller group of applicators who have achieved this benchmark.

“A half million square feet of installed IB Roofs is no small feat. It is a direct indicator of the commitment that Chandler’s Roofing has towards installing modern, sustainable, cool roof applications,” stated Will Maddux, director of representative development for IB Roof Systems.

Given the outstanding reviews, growth and marketshare that single-ply roofs have captured within the industry, Chandler’s Roofing is convinced that the future remains bright for roofing applications such as IB Roof Systems.
