Abstract : This report documents the construction and instrumentation of an aluminum standing-seam roofing system on a Defense Logistics Agency warehouse. The condition and performance of the system are being checked and tested at periodic intervals to determine its behavior over annual cycles and to evaluate its capacity for long-term, trouble-free service. This portion of the study observed the construction of the warehouse roof, including the specifications, materials, and building procedures used. Future studies will investigate the effects of corrosion on the aluminum panels and continue evaluations of temperatures and movement related to the system. The data will then be used to evaluate the roofing system's behavior over two annual cycles. This type of system shows promise of being a good, long-lasting reroofing system for replacing deteriorated BUR, which is commonly used at Army installations. The contractor who installed the roof used good building practices, and these procedures can serve as a model for future installations of this type of roofing. (Author)
