Since its construction in 1997, the 10,880-seat Crown Coliseum has been the heart of entertainment in Fayetteville, North Carolina. Twenty-two years after its construction, its owners, the Cumberland County Civic Center Commission, needed to replace its original PVC membrane roof, which was showing signs of age and fading.
Triangle Roofing Services installed the FiberTite roofing membrane, using a 60-mil mechanically attached membrane. Fayetteville is susceptible to powerful hail, so the thicker membrane was selected for added protection.
“We’ve used FiberTite for years and have always found it to be a good membrane,” said Brad Shaltz, Triangle’s project manager on the job.
Two high-wind events during the installation reinforced the need for exacting installation. Triangle worked with FiberTite Technical Services to ensure the installation had the right rating for hurricane-force winds
