Existing Conditions: There were two layers of asphalt roofing material over a structural concrete deck on a 5 story office building. The existing roof insulation contained a significant amount of moisture and the roof membrane was disintegrating rapidly. Cell towers were located along the entire perimeter of the roof making roof replacement an issue.

Options:

  1. Remove all of the existing roofing material and install a roof system of choice. This option would force the cell companies to move all of the cell towers while our roof work was being completed.

  2. Install a 2001 Wind Vented roof system over the existing roof. The Wind Vented roof system removes all of the moisture trapped within the existing roof assembly over a 9-18 month period. This roof system can be installed without the cell companies involvement and without disruption to the tenants.

Scope of Work: All out of service penetrations were removed from the roof. A 2001 Wind Vented roof system was installed directly over the existing roof using .060 EPDM. A manufacturer’s 20 year NDL, Non pro-rated labor & material warranty was issued.

Size of Roof: 10,910 sqft.
