On Tuesday, May 16th the NWiR Tampa Council met at Suncoast Roofers Supply’s new Tampa location for a Polyglass hands-on demo. Polyglass partnered with Delta Rep Group to provide Securock for the council to do a hands-on demonstration of installing Polyflex G torch cap sheet to Self-Adhered Polyflex SA V Base over Securock. Certified Polyglass installer, Steve Rush, demonstrated the safety procedures, necessary PPE, as well as proper technique. In addition to learning torch application and the group learned why Securock is a preferred substrate to adhere to. Polyglass also demoed their liquid applied flashing, which is useful for repairs in ponding water conditions, or if a homeowner has a leak and needs a temporary fix in the Florida rain.
In addition to the hands-on learning, the NWiR Tampa Council also hosted a diaper donation drive for Hope House. Hope House is a nonprofit organization that will house first time expecting moms who have chosen life for their babies and will assist these moms in learning life skills, parenting, career services, and budgeting so that they will be self sufficient once their child is born.
