Roof was experiencing leaks on the slope sections and along the flat roofs. We came in with GAF Timberline Shingles and restored the flat roofs with Karnak Karna-Sil 670 & Silicone Roof Restoration System.
We were hired by the owners to replace the existing built-up hot tar roof system. We went back with an affordable option doing a recovery system using 1/2″ EPS roof insulation and a new GAF EverGuard 60 mil TPO membrane roof system.
We installed new roof systems over these two new additions. The roofs consisted of tapered insulation sloped to roof drains. We then installed ½” Securock Coverboard over the tapered insulation, a new Tremco built-up cold process membrane roof system. This is a very durable roof system that can handle any kind of weather thrown at it and the customer gets a 20-year manufacturer’s warranty.
Recently, we were given the opportunity to install a truly unique roof system. A customer purchased a building in which one section has a walk out roof. The problem with the roof, however, was that the existing surface had a conventional asphalt roof system, which does not hold up well as a patio roof. We came up with a system that is made specifically for what the customer was looking for. We removed all the old roofing and bad wood, installed a layer of 5/8” T+G CDX plywood and installed a new DecTec 80 mil PVC walkable membrane deck roof system.
We recently started a roof maintenance plan for this company on their 70,000 Sq. Ft. building. On July, 17th 2016, we experienced a severe storm across this area consisting of drenching rain and winds over 50 MPH, which resulted in downed trees in some areas and for this customer, the loss of approximately 8500 Sq. Ft. of roofing and insulation. The storm completely pulled off the gutter and folded back the roofing. Because the storm happened at night, we received a call first thing in the morning and within an hour we were at the site. We mobilized the crew and tarped the area in question that day. When we returned to complete the project, we replaced all the damaged insulation and roofing, installed new PolyIso roof insulation to match existing. Over the insulation, we installed Firestone MB Fiberglass Base Felt and Firestone SBS White Granular Modified bitumen Membrane roof system. This highlights the importance of communication and is an example of a successful working relationship.
This roof had chronic leaking issues that were addressed by other contractors with no success. We could finally solve the issue while staying under budget and granting them a 15-year warranty! We re-roofed the building with a new 060 mil TPO white membrane system. Instead of tearing off the existing roofing, we could add the layer above their previous roof. In addition to preventing further leaks, the environmentally friendly roof system offers sustainability and energy efficiency.
This roof was severely damaged from Superstorm Sandy. Not only did portions of the roof blow off but the steel decking was compromised by the high winds. All decking was replaced with new. We then came in and installed a layer of 1” PolyIsocyanurate R-value 6.0. Over the PolyIso, we installed a layer of ¼” Securock coverboard. We then installed a Versico 60mil fully adhered TPO white membrane roof system. There are many advantages to using the combination of PolyIso and Securock. The Securock is an exceptionally strong board with enhanced bond strength that has superior protection against wind- uplift. The board is also moisture and mold resistant. Additionally, the Securock is a sustainable material since it is made from 97% recycled materials. The new roof system came with a 15-year Manufacturer’s Warranty.
We were recently hired to repair the mansard roof on a commercial warehouse that suffered severe damage from Superstorm Sandy. We needed to find a material that was compatible to the existing roofing that was not affected by the storm. A perfect choice was Classic Metal Roofing System’s rustic shingle. Metal shingles like this are a great choice for a commercial project. Not only are they strong, wind resistant, and largely impenetrable, they provide a beautiful and distinguished look from typical metal roofs. Additionally, these shingles–and metal roofing in general–are great for the environment. They’re made from at least 95% recycled aluminum. The product is relatively new to JDR and we were very pleased with the ease of installation. We could finish the project quickly and the owner now has a manufacturer’s warranty that covers the shingles against chipping, peeling, flaking, blistering, splitting, or cracking with age for 40 years.
At the Kenilworth, NJ PBA, located on Lafayette Place, we were hired to replace the existing asphalt shingles with new GAF Sovereign roofing. Within the flashing detail, we installed 032-gauge aluminum around two separate chimneys. This procedure keeps moisture out and provides a more cosmetically appealing look. We finished off by replacing the damaged 5 k gutter with a new 6” seamless gutter system to assist in drainage during heavy downpours. This building is now storm- proof!
We were called in to flash new HVAC curbs on a structurally prepared deck. The township restricted installation directly on the roof so we created a platform. The challenge here was flashing curbs in a cramped situation. We needed a very pliable material that was easy to work with. We used Versico PVC membrane for this job. The material sealed perfectly to the existing roof. In the end, we had a solution that worked for everyone.
For this project the existing roof included the original built-up asphalt with a soft corrugated aluminum panel roof installed over it. The building owner stated that the corrugated roof was a mistake and a nightmare. Since this building is an investment property, the cost was a concern, but quality was equally important. For this project, we decided to remove the metal roofing completely. Over the original asphalt roof, we then installed 3/8 EPS roof insulation. Over which we installed a new 60 mil TPO white membrane roof system. When complete, this roof was issued a 15-year manufacturer’s warranty for labor and materials. Another plus for the owner on this project was that we could recycle all the corrugated aluminum which offset a portion of the cost.
After several attempts by other companies to patch and repair the leaks, Acme Nissan hired Joseph David Roofing for a new solution. We applied a complete re-cover system to address all potential leaks while keeping costs down. The scope of work consisted of a layer of 3/8″ EPS roof insulation. Over the insulation, we installed a new Mule-Hide 60 mil TPO white membrane roof system complete with necessary flashings. Acme Nissan has been leak-free since the work was finished.
This roof on the Miele building in Princeton had been having major leaking problems for years, so we made a series of roof repairs over the field and along the wall flashings using Tremco roofing products. We also removed all the existing sealant from the coping stone and resealed using Solar Seal 900 and then applied two coats of Andek Polaseal MA concrete sealer. Since the job was completed, there has been several torrential rains but not a single leak!
The Goddard School had an issue with several leaks in the roof, so we proposed a system that included installing a layout of 1” of Polyisocyanurate rigid foam installation and a new 60-mil Mule Hide TPO White Thermoplastic membrane roof system. The completed project provided The Goddard School with a new watertight 15-year warranty membrane roof system and a more thermally efficient building. Cost advantages are realized through energy savings; thermal efficiency optimizes the benefits of solar gain, reducing the need for heating fuel while also significantly decreasing the energy used for cooling.
This roof had suffered some wind damage to the front of the building. The owner figured it was time to replace the whole roof. We first removed the old style leaking skylights. Removed all the rippled roofing from the wind damage. Installed a layer of 1″ PolyIso. roof insulation. Installed a new 060 EPDM rubber membrane roof system fully adhered. Complete with new flashing’s and sheet metal work.
