Bright Works Inc. was contacted to repair a collapse portion of warehouse roof structure that was separating from the perimeter wall. About 6 purlins had slipped out of there brackets do to storm and snow loads. BWI was able to shore the roof line and prevent the partial collapse leading to a "zipper" type collapse of 300 feet of roof onto the products below. The roof was shored-up, purlins lifted back to the proper elevation, and new connection made to secure the roof line and tie it back into the balance of the roof structure. If you have questions or need information, please call Bright Works today at (503) 697-7724.
