Based in Fort Myers, Florida, CFS Roofing is one of the pre-eminent roofing companies for both residential and commercial roofs in the area, having a proven reputation spanning more than 40 years. When CFS was contracted by the Cypress Cove residential community in Fort Myers to install new metal roofing throughout the 43-acre campus, Polyglass was their brand of choice for the roofing project's underlayment.
The Cypress Cove project involved installing an Englert S2000 snap lock metal roofing system across a series of complex roofing structures – more than 500,000 square feet of surface in total. The team used Polyglass' Polystick® MTS Plus as a steep-slope roof underlayment before installing the snap-lock roofing system. They then applied Tite Bond metal roofing sealant for final weatherproofing. Not only was the project a massive undertaking in itself, but the CFS team also had to fight through the COVID pandemic and supply chain issues to get the job done.
Although Englert typically requires contractors to use their own underlayment for such projects for warranty purposes, due to the sheer scope of the project, the company made an exception for CFS at their request and allowed them to install MTS Plus instead.
"The exposure rate [for MTS Plus] is much longer than the required Englert HT, which is mandatory to use for their weathertight warranty," explained Aaron Manual, Roofing Metal Manager for CFS.
Polystick MTS Plus is rated for exposure for up to 180 days.
"Englert accepted the use of MTS due to the large-scale project and knowing that the underlayment would be exposed for a longer than normal period of time."
Exposure time was not the only reason CFS chose Polyglass. Said Manual, "The MTS Plus has a cover sheet that is more slip-resistant than the competitors. All in all, I think it is one of the best underlayments on the market for metal roofing."
