Quad-Deck Advances Green Roof Technology

Quad-Lock’s Solution For Green Roofs

As owners and designers discover the many benefits of turning rooftops into beautiful and multifunctional landscapes, Quad-Lock provides them with yet another “leg to stand on”. The Quad-Deck pan forming system solves multiple problems faced by designers by providing a structural roof plane that is solid, rot resistant, and cost effective. Roof clear-spans exceeding 25 feet (7.6m) are possible that will support the loads imposed by both extensive and intensive green roof designs. Quad-Deck may even open the door to “urban agriculture” as it forms a stable and durable substrate made from solid reinforced concrete. Owners will continue to harvest benefits from the high insulation values provided by the Quad-Deck forms left in place. With a Quad-Deck green roof installation, it’s a ‘Win – Win” situation for builders, building owners, and the environment. As demand for sustainable building design increases, Quad-Lock continues to provide solutions. Shouldice Designer Stone

I posted the above, not to draw attention to the Builders show, but rather to draw you to the products available. While doing inspections, we are sometimes asked, or ask ourselves, how can this be done better? what is available to cut my costs but still maintain code compliance?
I know quite a few inspectors here are also contractors, as I am, so this information is really for you.

Excuse me? Sign your name if you have something to say. May I suggest going to bed a little earlier, as you obviously are lacking in …something.

Someone tries to impart information and gets treated like this? Although I am not, nor ever been, a member of ASHI, I am beginning to share their opinions and attitudes regarding some of the members of this BB. I usually try to keep an open mind, but it’s sure getting harder.

Brian Jones](“”)

You must like Dan Harris then, he is no model for ASHI. :wink:

LoL Raymond… If someone were to look over a few of my post’s, they would find that I have challenged Dan on a few things he has posted. On one occasion, when he tried to bring up something about a member’s private life, I asked him to back off. I was not a member here anymore at that time.
Although I often find Dan and others of his ilk amusing and dedicated, I dont feel that wallowing in the mud belongs on an open BB.
