Fort Bragg Starbucks

Here we have " the only Starbucks " in Fort Bragg, as I like to call it - through the recent years we have been doing leak repairs mostly to the perimeter of the tile roofing, the leaks were coming from an old galvanized gutter that was built into the building many years ago - and also some tiles were beginning to break and come loose - a major concern was of course not only my crews safety ( on this and every project we do ) but the safety of a non stop flow of Starbucks clients passing through every day.

So the plan is to remove all the tiles ( which were there from the first construction as the building had been a Taco Bell at first ), fill in the metal pan, cover it with TPO roofing membrane and then re-roof with a specialty shingle as this building is right downtown and is highly visible to all.

Now that all of the tiles and underlayments are gone we can get to work putting it all back together.

First we filled the pan ( about 3/4'' deep ) with lumber.

Then we covered it with 30# roofing paper and installed the flashings for the TPO roofing system.

Then the TPO is laid in place.

Once in place all the seams are welded.

On the ground our ever present Shiba Inu " Toby " stands guard over all.

Now it's time to install the new shingles, we chose CertainTeed Tri Lam shingles in the Shenandoah color.

While installing the shingles was very easy the detail work needed around 3 decorative dormer type " pop outs " was far from easy.

We used black granulated torch down roofing  with copper flashings, the copper counter flashings were set into " kerfs " cut with a diamond blade saw and then finish sealed with PL cement caulk.

All this detail work was very time consuming but critical to the job and my crew did and outstanding job of it.

We are almost done here except for some upper hip / corner pieces that had to be special made from a local sheet metal shop.

Here we go, all done and looking good.

The shingle selected was the perfect choice, it really " classed up " the building from the old Taco Bell look it had for years.

The entire project took approx. 4 days and will stand for years as the new and improved " only " Starbucks in Fort Bragg.
