Take a look at one of our most notable commercial roofing projects, The Grand Ole Opry Project in Nashville Tennessee. Our commercial roofing contractors were tasked with the removal and replacement of the existing roof system on the historic Grand Ole Opry House. The project was a great success, and our Nashville Branch is proud to have played a part in preserving this important piece of American history.
The Grand Ole Opry is one of the most iconic music venues in the United States and has been hosting live performances for over 100 years. Needless to say, when it came time to replace the roof on this historic building, we knew that we had to rise to the occasion.
As you can imagine, this was a massive undertaking that required the utmost precision and attention to detail.
The Roof was in bad shape and had been leaking for decades. In 2017, we were contracted to replace the entire roof system. This was no small feat as the Opry is a very large building with a complex roof system. Our crews had to use man baskets to access the roof and carefully remove the old roofing materials.
Our Nashville team of commercial roofers replaced the old concrete tile roof system with a new modified bitumen vapor barrier and a 60 mil Fibertite membrane, using CR-20 foam adhesive. In total, we roofed 105000 square feet of the Grand Ole Opry, including the main auditorium (45000 sqft) with a ribbed metal roofing system; and, on the remaining 60,000sqft, we used TPO flat roof sections.
We managed to pull this off without disrupting any of the live shows and events that take place in the Grand Ole Opry. The project took us 6 months to complete from start to finish!
This project is a great example of our team’s ability to take on complex projects and deliver results that exceed our customer’s expectations.
The aim of the project was to maintain the architectural integrity of the building while providing a roof system that would protect the structure from harsh Nashville weather. We were successful in both our goals and the roof has been leak-free since we completed the project.
We are grateful for the opportunity to showcase our work and help preserve this historic building for future generations.
