Cold temperatures alone can ruin projects and create costly damages and delays. In the roofing industry, this is especially apparent due to spray adhesives that harden when temperatures drop. Not to mention the number of unfinished or not-started projects that get moved to the backlog when waiting for better weather.
Ohio-based Revere Roofing, a licensed roofing contractor with a proven track record of quality work in commercial roofing, has been in this situation time and time again. Winter pushes through its March expiration date, enduring well into Spring. In April of 2019, Revere roofing employees were eager to try out a new spray adhesive for single-ply membranes, allowing jobs to be finished faster. However, the weather was still too chilly to try out the spray adhesive, which needs to be kept at or above 70° F. The company began searching for heating options so they could power through the cold.
“In April 2019 we started using more spray adhesive for single ply membranes. It’s a 40-pound cylinder. Most people will be going that direction because of huge time savings, but it is temperature sensitive. Using Powerblankets keeps it at the necessary temperatures,” said Isaac White, President of Revere Roofing.
The Powerblanket solution
Revere Roofing discovered Powerblanket’s bucket heaters.
“We started looking around and Powerblanket came up,” said White. “We had talked with a distributor and they had mentioned it. We bought several through a distributor.”
White said his company became an immediate fan of the bucket heaters.
“The guys like them,” he said, “and they’re easy to use. Nothing complicated about them. We strap the heater on the pail and can still move the pail all over the job with the heat source strapped to it. This is very convenient.” The convenience of mobile heat saved Revere Roofing massive amounts of time – and time is money.
White said that Powerblanket’s pail heaters allow his workers to move at double the speed they were moving in cold weather before.
“It’s pretty ideal,” he said. “The adhesive comes in a five-gallon pail, then you have to mix it and roll it. The guys are able to put it up twice as fast.”
Powerblanket serves the roofing industry’s weather-sensitive needs. Whether it’s heating or cooling, Powerblanket ensures temperatures stay exactly where you want them to be.
