Tectum Decking


Today my crew tore-off a roof and there was some damage to the decking. When they tore it out it was 3" thick and looked like pressed hay or straw. I called every distributor in my area and discovered it was called Tectum Decking, most had heard of it but none had it in stock. They knew of one guy that could get it and he said there was a 9 piece minimum and cost was $1,100. Panel size (30"x83"x3")
Also it would take 1 week to get the stuff.
This panel served as the Deck, Insulation, and Ceiling.
Has anyone else encountered this surprise?

Re: Tectum Decking


Its used in school gyms all the time for wall panels. Almost indestructable and has great sound absorbtion qualities. Usually in 1" to 1 1/2 inch thickness for wall panels. Try your local ceiling supply house.

Re: Tectum Decking

Beams are about 16" apart and the Beams are 4" wide.
What would you have done?

Re: Tectum Decking


The homeowner didn't have the money to do that.
Learning experience I guess.
