Project Story:

Over 25 years ago, Rubbermaid chose Maryville, Tennessee for a new plant location. With a history of three successful FiberTite installations at Rubbermaid facilities in Ohio, Texas, and Arizona, they selected FiberTite once again as their roof solution at the new Maryville facility. Summit BSR Roofing, located a short distance away in Bristol, Tennessee, had the experience needed for the 360,000 ft2 installation. The Rubbermaid facility managers have not been disappointed with the selection. The building underwent an expansion in 1997, which included another FiberTite roof. 

“In the over 25 years of performance, the local facility manager recently noted that this roof has required less than an hour per year of maintenance, a living testament to life cycle cost,” said Neil Hutchins, President of Summit BSR Roofing. “One factor to the low necessity of maintenance is access to the roof is through a hatch requiring a key. Controlling access is essential to protecting the roof.”

“Our team at Summit BSR Roofing is committed to quality, and FiberTite possesses the excellence we and our customers expect from a roofing membrane,” said Jim Riden, President Emeritus of Summit BSR. “I worked on one of the first installations of FiberTite back in the early 1980s, and the quality is still as high today as it was over 25 years ago. It’s absolutely the best single ply sheet on the market.”
