Axios | The new fiberboard roofing is a big deal for the new fiberglass siding that is being used in Menards new menards menards roof.
It’s been a long time coming and the new design is getting lots of attention from the local builders.
“It’s not the first fiberglass roofing we’ve ever built,” said Matt Dickson, senior vice president of product design for Menards.
“We’ve built a lot of the same material and materials in the past, but this is the first time we’ve built it in a completely new way.”
The new roofing was first tested at the company’s plant in Woodford, Texas, and then it went into production in Menard’s headquarters in New York City, where it is being tested for the first week.
“There is a lot more that goes into this than just the structural elements,” Dickson said.
“But I can tell you this, the quality is going to be outstanding.”
Fiberglass siders have been around for about 100 years.
This is a fiberglass exterior that has been engineered to resist the elements.
It is designed to keep its structural integrity in extreme conditions.
“The way it’s being built is not going to hold up to weather conditions,” Dinson said.
Menards is testing this new roof for the very first time and it will be up for inspection before the summer.
The new design includes a new “Fiberboard Sides” system, which is designed specifically to withstand weather and high temperatures.
“That’s the big difference,” said Menards Chief Architect Steve Roper.
“Fibers are more susceptible to the elements than wood, but they’re also more durable.”
“It also has a lot less water absorption than traditional siding,” he said.
So what does this mean for Menard and other roofing manufacturers?
“It will allow for a lot bigger capacity for the roof than what we had in the beginning,” Roper said.
The roof is engineered to be weatherproof from the water table to the top of the house.
It can be installed in a couple of months or years and will last years and years.
Menard has been testing the new roof since the beginning of this summer and has been working with its customers to make sure the materials meet the requirements of the climate.
“They really want it to be as weather-resistant as it can possibly be,” Ropers said.
In addition to its design features, Fiberboard is also able to be used for outdoor heating, so the roof can be used in a variety of applications, including a large-scale residential project.
“Our customers are building houses for people who want to be outdoors, so they’re going to need a roof that can withstand the elements,” Roker said.
But even though the new materials are weather resistant, the Fiberboard roof is a new system.
It isn’t the only new material Menards has used to make its siding.
“In the last few years, we’ve gone from using traditional wood siding for our new menard, to using fiberglass for our siding and to making new fiberwood for our exterior, and this new system will be a natural extension of that,” Dolin said.
