Be Truthful

The Bible teaches that purity of conduct includes truthfulness. “Sincerity and truth are what you require; fill my mind with your wisdom”. Psalms 51-6.

In my disgust for MBCI and the lies they told and continue to tell about Ultra Deck I forgot to mention that NCI does have good products. They just screwed the pooch with what they said about Ultra Deck and people do know the truth. Even NCI Board of Directors, but money not honesty and integrity rule them.

The Oklahoma Plant Sales Manager at the time and a man that I bought The Ultra Deck Roof from for more than a Decade and a 23 year sales employee of MBCI was a Truthful man and although we don’t speak anymore I would assume he still is. He is no longer employed by MBCI and was not employed at trial. However, he swore under oath that MBCI sold me the Ultra Deck as a water tight (hydrostatic) roof and that is the way MBCI marketed the Ultra Deck roof. I will also add that he was angry with me because this fact and all conversations were recorded as part of phone system quality control program.I also have Wayne Dickinson admitting the roof is Hydrostatic. He agreed the roof had been submerged in water, again hydrostatic test. But I digress. I publicly want to than Cody Rodden for being a man of Integrity and telling the TRUTH. The only one at NCI/MBCI who did.

Standing Seam Roofs

The statement below was taken from a very good article I found on the invention of the standing seam roof panel.

Any deterioration of the sealant in these endlap joints would permit wind gusts to drive water into the joints, causing leakage. At numerous places along the roof, there are areas where two end panels and two adjacent side panels form a four-corner intersection. This area is particularly difficult to seal. Watertightness of the roof has been a recurring problem in standing seam roofs.

I would say I agree with the above article. I would like to add that if an improper amount of mastic or none at all existed in the panel then this would cause leaks by wind driven rain as well.

Hiring an Architect: Part 5- What? Me, hire an architect?

true

Architect's Trace

In this installment of the ‘Hiring an Architect’ series, I address the most common question I’ve heard over the years from potential residential clients- “What? Me, hire an architect?” In my experience what they’re actually asking is;

“Can I afford an architect, aren’t they expensive?”

“Can’t I just by a builder house or buy plans from a book and still end up with what I want?”

“Isn’t an architect just going to design what they want and ignore me?”

These questions weigh heavily on clients, in reality; they couldn’t be further from the truth. However, hiring the services of an architect is not for everyone. Not everyone is building a custom home or taking on a significant renovation/addition. If you are considering/making such an investment, why not hire an architect to assist you in getting what you want? If you want your home to reflect who you…

Why lie about Ultra Deck

Water-Shedding Roofs

A water-shedding, or hydro-kinetic roof, also known as an architectural roof, relies on a steep slope to shed rainwater immediately. These roofs typically incorporate the water-shedding capabilities in the architectural design of the roof itself, which gives rise to the term used to describe them. This roof is ideal for buildings where aesthetics are important, because the inbuilt water resistance is less obvious and just as secure.

Water-shedding roofs need an optimum gradient of at least 3:12 to begin with, which allows the water to run off down to the downspouts and drainage system. Dramatic visual effects are created using low profile standing seam panels with little to no exposed fasteners. The structural design of this style of metal roof is particularly important to provide adequate support for the shape and load of the roof, and installation usually includes an underlayment such as a 30-lb roofing felt or an adhesive-backed ice and water shield.

This article appears at the website of Whirlwind Steel:

How can MBCI claim in court that their roof to be water-shedding only but state on their website that the minimum slope is 1/4:12. Is MBCI right and everyone else wrong? Every where I read, a water shedding roof is to be installed on a minimum 3:12 slope. The right people have not seen this information yet.
