Technical Questions & Answers
A new addition to our Monthly Newsletter, Technical Questions & Answers aims to give explanations and answers to some of the questions we receive throughout the month regarding our products.
Questions range from choosing the right Boral Roofing products, features of a specific product, and best installation practices.
Technical Questions & Answers from the Month of September
This month we received a question regarding the fastening of our Stone Coated Steel panels and their protection against passage of water.
The Boral Steel panel’s standard design reduces the passage of water through the front nose fastening points. This is due to the fasteners being located in the “Shadow line” of the panel’s nose. This location provides secure fastening in the high points of the nose in the vertical plane, which allows water run-off over the front nose away from the fastening points. Through third party testing to the High Velocity Hurricane Zone criteria for wind driven rain, the fastening location passes all the HVHZ testing without water intrusion, into the structure.
Boral Roofing’s Favorite Installations of the Month
Partnered with #ROTW (Roof of the Week) posts on Social Media, we think it is important to highlight some of our favorite installations of Boral Roofing products by roofers from the past month! For the month of September, we received quite a few submissions of different jobs around the country that we thought were exceptionally stunning!
Fun & Entertainment
Things have been pretty serious for the past few months; however, we think it is important to maintain a sense of fun and appreciation for our employees as we continue to support our customers, employees, and the industry during the current climate.
In September, Boral Roofing had a couple of fun things that we shared on our social media pages including an interesting installation of our Inspire Classic Slate, and featured Christy Hager, our E-Commerce Manager in our monthly Employee Spotlight.
Additionally, we also participated in ‘Patriot Day’ on September 11th to honor the heroes and families of September 11th, 2001.
