Roofer honored for work with G-P mill

POSTED: June 2, 2007 5:02 a.m.

D. C. Taylor Co., a commercial and industrial roofing contractor with offices in Atlanta, was a finalist for the National Roofing Contractors Association’s Gold Circle Awards for outstanding workmanship on low-slope roofing systems.

D. C. Taylor Co., who was awarded honorable mention, was nominated by and recognized for its work on the Georgia-Pacific Tissue Mill in Rincon.

Georgia-Pacific Corp. needed a new roof over its tissue-converting operation in Rincon.

In addition to the typical concerns of a re-roofing project such as schedule, keeping the building watertight at night, safe working practices, and a high-quality roofing system, D. C. Taylor Co. could not allow metal shavings to contaminate the finished tissue products.

Working with the Georgia-Pacific engineering team, D. C. Taylor Co. installed a fully adhered Carlisle SynTec Sure-Weld roof system incorporating two layers of fully adhered insulation in Carlisle SynTec Fast-100 adhesive.

This eliminated the use of mechanical anchors penetrating the steel deck and the subsequent shavings the process would produce.

D. C. Taylor Co.’s project management plan and commitment to exceeding the high safety standards of Georgia-Pacific produced a successful project ahead of schedule with no injuries or disruption to Georgia-Pacific’s operations.

D.C. Taylor Co., with more than 50 years of commercial and industrial roofing experience, provides responsible roofing, inside and out, by delivering expert roofing and preventive maintenance services needed to keep its clients’ facilities protected and secure.

The company has more than 60 service and roofing crews in five service areas: Atlanta; Cedar Rapids, Iowa; Chicago; Concord, Calif.; and Phoenix, and has been ranked among the nation’s largest industrial roofing contractors for more than 20 years.
