What If My Equipment Shelter Needs A Custom Roof?

Hi, I’m Tracy Switzer, President of Shelter Works. And today I’m 10 feet up on a ladder to answer the question, “What if I need a custom roof?”

If you’re familiar with our buildings you’ll know that most of our buildings have a standard hip shaped roof with four slopes, four different directions to shed precipitation. This customer needed a flat roof. Actually it’s a flat plane on a slight incline.

There are many reasons somebody might want a flat roof, and we are able to accommodate that. It might be that you have a tall piece of equipment so you need extra wall height, but you don’t have enough overhead clearance to allow for the vault of a hip roof. It may be (as I think it is in this case) where this building will be up against another building and they don’t want precipitation to run off the roof toward the other building. They want it all to run this way and off into the ground away from the building.

So remember, we are a custom shop. If you need something special, let our engineers know and as always, if it was built by Shelter Works, it was built for life.
