Central Park High-Rise

Located near Central Park in New York City, this 18-story co-op was renovated to include a new energy efficient 30-year roof system.  General contractor Bellet Construction selected Polyglass’ self-adhered, modified bitumen roof system for the re-roof project.  To ensure perfect installation, the crew closely monitored winter weather conditions and followed the product storage instructions. The multi-level 18,000 square-foot roof system was completed on schedule.

Project Requirements:
The building owner required a Cool Roof Solution to maximize the energy efficiency of the building.  The capabilities of Polyglass’ roofing membranes with patented CURE Technology® and ADESO® Technology met the project requirements.  Membranes manufactured with CURE Technology have improved reflectivity, granule adhesion, UV and stain resistance and durability. In addition, membranes with ADESO Technology have an aggressive adhesive applied to the bottom side of the membranes enabling a fast and torch-less installation.

Roof System Components:
Three-ply, self-adhered roof system with 30-year roof system warranty featuring Polyfresko® G SA and Elastoflex SA V. Polyfresko G SA is a highly reflective APP, self-adhered cap sheet with patented CURE and ADESO Technology. Polyfresko G SA is California Title 24 Compliant and is listed with the Cool Roof Ratings Council.  Polyfresko G SA was also used for the flashings, creating a seamless, watertight finish. Elastoflex SA V, a low-temperature flexible membrane designed for torch-less applications, was used for the base, interply and flashing details.

New York Bank Headquarters

Project Overview

Roof Pro, a New York based roofing contractor, was selected to tear off old roof system and install a new roofing system for a bank headquartered in New York. The building had a two roof system, with a hot-tar build up roof underneath a layer of insulation and loose laid EPDM (ethylene propylene diene terpolymer) membrane.

The Region’s Climate

New York has moderate precipitation throughout the year, some heat waves in summer and very cool weather in winter and even in the early spring. Snow is concentrated in winter months.

The Roofing System Selected

Roof Pro worked with their customer to choose the right solution.  The Polyglass self-adhered SBS modified bitumen membrane was selected to build a watertight roofing system. The roofing system consisted of two plies of Elastoflex SA V base sheet and one Elastoflex SA P, a white self-adhered cap sheet.
