I will be posting on u-tube video of the roof leaking by simply holding a water hose 3 feet above the roof. This roof is the Ultra Deck by MBCI and The roof from Whirlwind which is an exact copy.
I will also post what MBCI executives said about Ultra Deck. NCI you can run but the truth will win the day. Did you tell A R Ginn that the roof that built his fortune is not water tight at the side laps per Astm E 1514. Wayne Dickinson, you said the roof needs no sealant to pass any test. Without mastic it wont pass ASTM 1646 found in your own manual. But then you couldn’t tell the truth in court. Did Force Engineering or Faranbaugh tell you that. No, I didn’t think so. Strange that you told me that the roof had been submerged in water. And that the mastic was viable??? Now we both know the truth about that one. If NCI and MBCI are truthful then release the 200 documents. Oh that is right, your vice president of manufacturing said in deposition, under oath that the roof would come unlocked with out the proper mastic. He said that in 2009, but in 2011 he said the roof needs no mastic. You all sounded like Parrots!
MBCI advertises on their website that their Ultra Dek standing seam panel can be installed on a 1/4:12 slope per this link:
MBCI has claimed in court their Ultra Dek is a (hydro-kinetic) water shedding panel, but all the definitions I how found for a water shedding system requires a minimum slope of 3:12. Below is another website that gives the definition:
Water Shedding Systems
All of the roofing systems listed on this website are considered “water shedding” roofing systems. The products usually require a roof slope of 3:12 or greater. For each 12 inches of run (eave to ridge) the roof must rise-up at least 3 inches.

Now….it doesn’t take a lot of smarts to see what is going on here and that any claims that may have been made in court about their Ultra Dek being a water shedding system was to confuse the jury into thinking they were not in the wrong. I think someone needs to call them and ask what type of system their Ultra Dek really is. Think of how many buildings in the USA alone have this roof installed at a 1/4:12 slope. Do these owners have a good roof?
