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.
