This steep slope tile roofing project at Wo International Center located on the Punahou campus was in a high traffic, high visibility area. It included the total tear off of an existing roof system and installation of a tile roof. Access to the building was not easy and the presence of students and faculty made it difficult to bring any type of crane nearby for loading and unloading – thus all loading and unloading was done by hand.

Project scope including the removal of the existing tile roof, underlayment, nailer, metal flashing and haul away off premises. A tie-wire system was used 1 foot on center and stainless steel cables were installed every 12 inches across the entire roof faces. Tiles were then installed individually installed to the wire system. Installed were MLT Tile Seal to the deck, Bird stops and Starter pieces at the eaves. New copper valleys and wall flashings were installed along with the dripedge flashing, Gable tiles at the rakes and Hip and Ridge tiles.

Another unique aspect to this project included the loading process. A gradall was used for loading to simply lift the tile to the roof edge. A human chain was then created as tiles were tossed man to man across a chain of about 7-8 men and then stacked at the location of staging for installation. It was a sight to see and it made the Punahou social media as a short video clip captioned “kuleana” working together!
