Location: 491 Edward Ross Road, Elmwood Park, NJ

Owner: Alfred Sanzari Enterprises

Property Manager: Brad Porrino

Existing Conditions: There were two roofs on the building. The original roof was a conventional hot tar roof with a polyester mat mopped in hot asphalt for the second roof. The polyester roof was applied over a roof that had been leaking, trapping in the moisture, causing the second roof to prematurely fail.


  1. Remove both roofs down to the steel roof deck and install a new tapered insulation and roof system.

  2. Install a 2001 Vented Roof system which is light in weight and has the ability to dry out wet insulation and trapped moisture and will continue to vent the roof for the life of the new roof.

Scope of Work: Remove all of the service roof penetrations, check and replace any deteriorated steel decking. After all necessary preparations have been made, install a 20 year .060 C-EPDM (rubber) single ply roof system directly over the existing roof.

The field of the roof was installed and watertight within 5 days.

50’ x 150’ sheets of membrane were installed without fasteners. Large field sheets keep seaming to under 900 In ft.

A manufacturer’s 20 year NDL transferable, renewable, workmanship and material warranty was issued to Alfred Sanzari.

Size of Roof: 56,000 sqft.
