The roofing system for The Independent includes a fully-tapered roof inside a screened-in area that is surrounded by a narrow roof deck with no walls.

Carlisle SynTec Excellence in Single-Ply Award 2019

 

For the 22nd consecutive year, Carlisle SynTec Systems has honored Texas Fifth Wall Roofing Systems, Inc. with its Excellence in Single-Ply (ESP) award. One of the most prestigious awards in the commercial roofing industry, ESP was created 22 years ago to identify Carlisle’s most successful contractors. ESP status is given out annually to a small percentage of Carlisle’s most dedicated and professionally minded applicators. Selection into this elite group is based on a company’s volume and quality of Carlisle single-ply roofing systems.

Austin-based Texas Fifth Wall has installed and warranted over 49 million square feet of Carlisle’s single-ply roofing systems and has completed 1,638 Perfect 10 installations as judged by Carlisle’s final inspection process. “It is this unyielding dedication to quality, coupled with sheer volume of your installations that has allowed Texas Fifth Wall Roofing Systems, Inc. to receive ESP distinction,” said Nick Shears, Carlisle’s Interim President and Executive Vice President Sales and Marketing. “You are one of a select group of authorized applicators that has received this honor, solidifying your elite status within our contractor recognition program.”

“Achieving excellence is deeply ingrained in our culture,” said Todd Hewitt, Texas Fifth Wall President and CEO. “Being a recipient of the ESP award is a great honor earned by few commercial roofing companies. Realizing such recognition for 22 consecutive years – every year in its existence – is an even greater testament to Texas Fifth Wall’s longstanding commitment to excellence. I could not be more proud of the Fifth Wall organization for achieving this distinct honor.”

Historic Emily Morgan hotel sees major update

When it was time to replace the copper roof atop the historic, 13-story Emily Morgan Hotel — something that hadn’t been done in the building’s 91-year history — the project leader knew he needed a team of workers with a special set of skills.

Why? Because the top of the downtown hotel is done in the slanted Art Deco revival style that was all the rage in the 1920s. And when we say slanted we mean slanted.  As in, a 67-degree-angle, which is almost two-thirds of the way to vertical, a 90-degree angle. We’re talking scary-steep metal, all nice and hot under the broiling Texas summer sun, and almost 160 feet up from the ground.  The building, which stands at East Houston Street and Avenue E next to Alamo Plaza, was originally a medical arts building and completed in April 1926 at a cost of $1.55 million.
