Our knowledgeable team has experience with commercial roofing replacements and commercial roofing repairs. From our Dumont headquarters in northern New Jersey, we reach out to serve local homeowners in Bergen County, Passaic County, Essex County, Morris County and Union County, NJ and regional NJ businesses alike. CRS takes pride in completing single-day residential roof replacements for homeowners. Our team of roofing contractors has years of experience identifying the right residential roofing materials for a project and executing residential roof replacement and repair, as well as residential roof design. LiveRoof systems are locally grown under care of professional horticulturists, who select RoofTop Proven plant mixes suitable to each project. Many of the plants in the systems are exclusively breed, selected and developed for performance in the rigors of a rooftop environment.
Blue Oak was able to provide valuable guidance on how to adapt the arrays to complicated architecture , and our use of 3D modeling software clearly and quickly conveyed to the team various design options. This installation was part of a larger renovation project at the complex at the U. S. Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center and required close collaboration with all parties involved.
If the building occurs in an area that has not adopted a building code, it is prudent for the designer to voluntarily comply with the roofing-related provisions of a current edition of a model code such as the IBC. Prior to 1990, the three model building codes contained few provisions pertaining to roof systems. The International Building Code has many provisions related to roof systems, including reroofing projects.
The term “rooftop unit” is used to describe a packaged unit installed on the roof. In the last 30 to 40 years, these membranes have gained popularity as a single-layer, watertight alternative to traditional built-up flat roofs. This multi-layer roof design is a proven system that has been around for generations. BUR is found in many low slope residential and commercial roofing applications. Underneath the basics, flat roofs are usually constructed with a ceiling, nailed to joists which support a deck , a vapor barrier, insulation and a roof board. From there, the flat roof system you choose will determine the materials you apply.
Because of their environmental exposure, rooftop units are built to withstand sunlight, rain, wind, frost, and other conditions. ft. design/build project features TextureClad™ panels on the front of the building. Images of animal faces on the exterior accent the theme of the building’s use. As an architectural feature, a dog bone hangs from the ceiling in the lobby. Our Panel Rib™ Roof system is an attractive, high-quality and low-maintenance metal roof that is ideal for tight budgets. This metal roof system offers quicker installation and enhanced roof integrity, utilizing sealant at every metal-to-metal contact point to provide full weather-resistance.
It is better to avoid the situation all together and use rigid insulation on top of the deck with a water-resistant air and vapor retarder membrane below and cover board or sheathing above. Blanket insulation is commonly used to insulate roofs of pre-engineered metal buildings. Fiberglass insulation is the most common batt/blanket insulation, and it is also available as a blown-in product. Mineral wool is also available in configurations suitable for roofing; it has a higher compressive strength than fiberglass.
When the time has come to decide on a solar PV design, the engineering and design team at Blue Oak Energy will take into account the specific electrical and structural needs of each building. Our solar system engineers and designers are experienced with a wide range of roofing structures and situations. The type of rooftop, roofing membrane, and building structure will in large part inform the commercial solar rooftop design for the project. This flat roof systems contains layers of waterproof membrane, tar and gravel to seal the flat roof surface. This flat roof system is a great affordable option, plus it has fire resistant properties that are a great safety factor multi-family property. Built-up roofs are also very sturdy and efficient insulators due to their several layers.
What’s more, rooftop PV electricity generation involves little to no water. That stands in contrast to almost all power plants that make electricity using steam. These include coal and nuclear plants, many natural gas plants, and some other renewable energy facilities, which depend on water for cooling. That dependence can cause problems when cooling water becomes too scarce or too hot. Many home owners and businesses are taking advantage of third-party ownership options.

The fate of many prematurely failed roofs is often set by poorly prepared documents . The importance of the designer’s diligence in preparing specifications and drawings cannot be overemphasized. Since the 1970s, many warranties have become marketing tools rather than true reflections of demonstrated roof system performance.
It also minimizes hot, wet, and dry zones, and avoids compartmentalizing the growing medium into unnatural ‘grids’ as is the case with other modular systems. That’s why LiveRoof’sexperienced local representatives evaluate, recommend and grow vegetated roof systems and plants based on the specific site conditions of your green roof project. Tesla announced the solar roof more than two years ago, but has never rolled out the product at scale.
Modified bitumen sheet membraneshave one or more layers of plastic or rubber material with reinforcing fabrics, and are surfaced with mineral granules or a smooth finish. These can also be used to surface a built-up roof—known as a “hybrid” roof. Built-up roofsconsist of a base sheet, fabric reinforcement layers, and a dark protective surface layer.
However, because there is only one layer of waterproofing, they do not offer the reliability of multiple layers. SBS MB roofing systems can also be used in a Protected Membrane Roof (sometimes referred to as an Inverted Roof Membrane Assembly ) configuration. If a PMR system is specified, a slip-sheet recommended by the membrane manufacturer should be placed between the membrane and the XPS to prevent the insulation boards from bonding to the membrane. Otherwise, membrane tearing could occur when the insulation moves or floats during a rainstorm.
CFC was used to manufacturer extruded expanded polystyrene, polyisocyanurate, and spray foam insulation. CFC was phased out because of its role in global depletion of atmospheric ozone. As an interim measure, hydrochlorofluorocarbon blowing agents were used in the 1990s and early into the 2000s. It was not until introduction of the third generation blowing agent, hydrofluorocarbon that a blowing agent with a zero ozone depletion rating was available. The development of the second and third generation blowing agents was technically challenging. Though the phase-ins of the new agents were generally successful, product performance problems were experienced.
