Structodek HD Market Announcement

Dear Valued Customer-

As you are likely aware our entire industry is experiencing unprecedented product demand; when coupled with freight carrier and raw material supply issues it has proven to be a very challenging year for Blue Ridge Fiberboard.

We have done our upmost to supply you with on-time shipments of the quality products you are accustomed to. Unfortunately, we have faced unprecedented complications in manufacturing created by the shortages of raw materials, cost escalations, power supply challenges and constant product changeovers. It is for this reason that we have decided to streamline our manufacturing process and focus on the universally accepted Structodek HD Roof Insulation with Primed Red coating.

  • Effective immediately we will no longer produce Structodek HD Roof Insulation with any black coating, both the black coated 6-sides and coated 1-Side are now discontinued. Blue Ridge Fiberboard will only manufacture Structodek HD Roof Insulation with Primed Red Coating on 2-sides until further notice.
  • The discontinuation of Structodek with black coating includes all unshipped orders regardless of order placement and shipment dates. Additionally, any open job quotes will have the option of cancellation or conversion to Structodek with Primed Red coating held through the same date.
  • Raw material shortages have created order delays up to 3 weeks on most orders. We are in the process of evaluating and fulfilling commitments as best as possible under the current circumstances.

Structodek with Primed Red Coating is an approved coverboard insulation by nearly every OEM membrane manufacturer in the commercial roofing industry. It meets Factory Mutual RoofNav, UL and other product listings and is referenced under the same name “Structodek High Density Fiberboard Roof Insulation”.  Simply put, Structodek with Primed Red coating 2-sides meets the all the same ASTM physical property requirements/approvals as does Structodek with black coatings be it a hot applied or single-ply application.

We are working through our large order backlog and you will be contacted in regards to your Structodek black coated product order, if applicable, in hopes of converting your business over to Structodek with Primed Red coating. Your Blue Ridge Regional Manager will be working through these conversions with you in the coming days. This one product focus will help us to better supply the overall demand we’re currently experiencing in the commercial roofing industry and we will be available to assist you convert your clients over to Structodek with Primed Red coating.

We thank you in advance for working with and supporting Blue Ridge Fiberboard in these challenging times and look forward to a long and mutually beneficial relationship in the future.
