A learning experience

Harbert Roofing Inc. installs its first green roof system on Shasta County Library

When the Shasta County Library in Redding, Calif., needed roof systems installed on its new building, the project was put out for public bid. The general contractor that was awarded the project determined which roofing contractor would install the roof systems on the building.

So Harbert Roofing Inc., Redding, was pleased the general contractor chosen was one with which Harbert Roofing has a close working relationship. As a result, Harbert Roofing was chosen to install the new roof systems on the Shasta County Library and given the opportunity to try something it never had done before—install a green roof system.

A choice

Harbert Roofing's relationship with Carlisle, Pa.-based Carlisle SynTec Inc. and experience with its products led Harbert Roofing to choose a Carlisle SynTec system for the project.
