Sutter Roofing Completes Dry Warehouse Expansion for Publix

Sarasota, Florida – March 15, 2012 – Sutter Roofing, one of Florida’s leading commercial and industrial subcontractors, is finishing work on Publix’s HV / LV Dry Warehouse Expansion in Lakeland. They were contracted to install a 600,000 square foot, energy-star, LEED-certified, thermoplastic Sarnafil roof.   The approximately $2.5 million roofing project was started in mid-December, and will be substantially complete by the end of March. Sutter Roofing has worked with Publix for more than 15 years, and is only one of four approved roofing contractors in the state that can perform work for the grocery chain.

“We are very pleased to have been awarded this project and providing a great roofing system to our friends at Publix,“ explains Doug Sutter, President of Sutter Roofing.  He continues, “The size of this project was massive, about 13 football fields, and the production and labor budgets are both exceeding our expectations.”

Sutter used the Sarnafil roofing system, a thermoplastic roofing membrane that temporarily changes from a solid to a semi-solid state when heated sufficiently, enabling the sheets or panels that are overlapped to be fused together and return to a solid upon cooling, forming one continuous sheet membrane. Sarnafil’s specially formulated thermoplastic membranes are also designed to withstand everyday occurrences of ponding water and other natural elements such as birds, biological organisms, pollution, wind, hail and snow. Thermoplastic roofing membranes have extended life cycles, inhibit the heat island effect and are available in energy-efficient colors.
