Founded in 1988 by Mike Orth and Terry Smith, SBC Industries sought to provide a solution to a problem roofing contractors everywhere, especially here in Miami, FL, were encountering; effectively waterproofing roof penetrations. By combining Terry Smith’s tooling expertise with Mike Orth’s architectural sheet metal experience, SBC produced a functional conduit and pipe roof flashing constructed of stainless steel. It immediately drew applause from roof system manufacturers, architects, consultants, and from the roofer himself.
As they do today, the flashings echoed SMACNA and NRCA drawings and were user friendly. In the forthcoming years, SBC solved waterproofing problems associated with flashing angle irons, H Beams, unistrut, cables, square tubing, and every other penetration through the roof.
From incorporation to the present, SBC has worked closely with the specifier, consultant, designer, and contractor to provide practical roof flashing solutions and metal accessories that enhance the longevity and durability of the modern building envelope.
