Design and Estimating

The design services tapered network uses the latest technology to offer architects, consultants, general contractors, distributors, and roofing contractors a complete, accurate, and timely engineered tapered insulation system for any project. Kline-Johnson’s fully trained and experienced design team has access to the most advanced software and hardware, including Taper Plus and AutoCAD. This efficiently creates CAD-generated installation shop drawings ranging from basic tapered layouts to complex projects requiring quick turnaround time. We are committed to providing accurate and timely tapered take-offs that encompass all critical elements affecting proper drainage.

Additionally, Kline-Johnson offers architects and consultants a free tapered design assistance service. Through this service, we create a professional and effective tapered system design for any project prior to bid. Based on a copy of the roof plan (AutoCAD format is preferred) and all relevant factors, our design staff will create an AutoCAD drawing detailing the optimum tapered layout, which may then be transferred directly to the bid documents. By considering all mandatory design factors, we offer peace of mind that your tapered design will promote positive drainage.

Our estimating department will provide estimates on commercial garden roofing projects, pedestal paver systems, unique plaza paver systems, standing seam metal roofs, single skin metal wall panels, and complex Rain Screen and Barrier Systems.
