The Crossings Shopping Center

Roof Manufacturer – Firestone Building Products
Roof Size – 70,000 Square Feet
Roof System – .060 Ballast EPDM

The Crossings Shopping Center was originally built in 1990, located east of Downtown Nashville, just north of Nashville International Airport. Rackley Roofing installed the shopping center’s originally roof system, a .045 ballasted EPDM roof system, which performed well for more than two decades.

In 2012, Rackley was brought in by the shopping center’s owners to perform a reroof on a large section of the facility. We updated the 70,000 square foot section of roofing to a .060 ballasted EPDM system from Firestone Building Products, and we were able to provide the client with a 20-year warranty from Firestone. Our team left the build site very confident that the new roof will outperform our original roof system, and we’re looking forward to upgrading this roof once again in a few decades’ time.

FedEx Ground

Roof Manufacturer – Firestone Building Products
Roof Size – 200,000 Square Feet
Roof System – 0.045 Mechanically-Fastened TPO

This project involved the ground-up construction of a large warehouse facility for global distribution giant, FedEx. Rackley Roofing was called upon to provide a durable yet cost-effective roofing system for this 200,000 square-foot facility, so we chose to install a Firestone .045 mechanically-fastened roof system, which will deliver many years of reliable performance. Our team also installed more than 1,600 linear feet of gutter, which will help to evacuate rainwater effectively and minimize the potential for leaks to develop in the future. We are pleased to showcase this outstanding example of our large-scale commercial roofing capabilities, and we know this quality roofing system will serve the client well for many years.

Broadway Roof

Roof Manufacturer – Carlisle Syntec
Roof Size – 7,000 Square Feet
Roof System – TPO Fleeceback

Rackley Roofing was called in by this building owner to locate and repair several roof leaks that had been occurring consistently since another roofing contractor had installed this roof. Once on site, our team quickly discovered that the original installation had been performed incorrectly, so we decided the best course of action for this client was to propose the installation of an entirely-new roof system.

After we consulted with the client to highlight and discuss their various options, we were able to convince that a full roof replacement was the best way to go. We carefully tore off the five-year-old roof system before installing a fully-tapered insulation, Carlisle 115 mil fleeceback TPO, and we were able to extend a 15-year warranty to the client. Our team is very proud of the results of this 7,000 square foot commercial roofing project, and we’re very confident it will perform far better than the original roofing system for the next decade and beyond.

Asurion

Roof Manufacturer – Firestone Building Products
Roof Size – 110,000 Square Feet
Roof System – .060 TPO

Rackley Roofing installed the original roof on this facility in 1998—a .045 EPDM mechanically-attached roof with a 10-year warranty. When the Antioch, Tennessee building came under new ownership with Asurion in 2010, we were asked to update the roof with a 20-year TPO system, while keeping the existing skylights intact.

Rackley installed a brand-new Firestone .060 mechanically-fastened TPO roof system on this facility, changing the roof’s color from black to white to help reflect the summer’s heat and reduce energy consumption. This roofing system upgrade will deliver decades of reliable, cost-effective performance for Asurion, helping regulate the building’s internal temperature while letting in beautiful natural light.
