Technology Is A Game Changer for Commercial Roofing
New technological advances in construction are changing the world of commercial roofing. KPOST Company strives to stay on the forefront of industry innovations that might make for safer, more efficient, and more affordable services.
From 3-D concrete printers to energy-saving roofing systems the construction industry is full of creative, innovative thinkers making leaps and bounds in the ever-growing field of construction. This month in Roofing Contractor Magazine editor Rick Damato offers a commentary on what’s changing now and how it will impact roofing businesses in the future. Here’s what he has to say in his article “New Roofing Technology Is Changing the Game”.
“As new technologies in manufacturing and building materials continue to improve on all fronts, the business operations technologies of the roof-contracting industry have also changed.
Business communication continues to change with increasing use of teleconferencing, video conferencing and Web conferencing as ways of communicating across wide groups. With emerging enhancements to the infrastructure that delivers the bandwidth needed to deliver these services, providers will introduce more/faster/better communications tools, including some we simply have not imagined yet.
As for email, it is being nudged out by text messages and Tweets. I believe the move from desktop to laptop to tablet is finally taking business to the promised land of the paperless enterprise.
I believe building information modeling (BIM) will continue to emerge as one of the most productive tools in the history of building in the modern era.
As robotics have been in use in the factory for four decades or more, they will be used to produce metal roofing systems on the jobsite. The ability to roll out the perfect parts, virtually waste free, in real time as they are being assembled on the roof adds value in more ways than I have room to describe here.
Aerial imaging will grow from an estimating tool into new services for roofing and other contractors. As the images become more robust, they will have the ability to monitor the building envelope and even become a more important tool for roof inspectors.
The building envelope continues to be one of the superstars of energy-efficient building design. Roof membranes, coatings and insulation material technologies will continue to be forced forward by demand.”
The commercial roofing industry is rapidly evolving with new technologies everyday and at KPOST Company we are committed to setting industry standards.”
“We are always looking for better ways to serve our customers. Investing in new technology that allows us to better perform our jobs while also minimizing the impact to our customers is of great interest to us at KPOST,” said Steve Little, president of KPOST Company. “It’s one of the things I really like about being with KPOST – we put educating our customers first consequently earning their trust for years to come.”
