  2. Knickerbocker Roofing and Paving Offers Waterproofing Capabilities

    knickKnickerbocker Roofing has been in business for over 125 years offering industrial, commercial, and institutional roofing solutions, including inverted roof systems and vegetative roof systems. Inverted roof systems are designed to protect the roof from excessive weather conditions which are prevalent in some areas of the country, while vegetative roofing systems are designed to have a garden or other vegetation on it. Both roofing types can better protect the roof and provide a high return on investment.

    Using an inverted or vegetative roofing system means the waterproofing membrane is buried underneath the system. Unlike traditional roofs that are easily accessible, inverted and vegetative roofs can be nearly impossible to access, making it important to use a quality material to protect the roof at the time of installation.

    Although the membrane is necessary to protect the roof, it can be burdensome to make repairs when leaks happen. When you choose Knickerbocker to install one of these roofs, you get a quality waterproof membrane that is installed by highly skilled craftsmen and women to prevent difficult repairs that are hard to reach. Any system that is paved over, has a garden or vegetative roof, or decking can be waterproofed.

    The professionals at Knickerbocker understand roofs and know how to design and construct the right roof for any job. They have extensive experience with green roofs and can work under tight deadlines to get the roof up and ready as soon as possible. They are also able to install Electric Field Vector Mapping Systems (EFVM) which are a high-quality tool for investigating leaks to quickly solve any water leakage problems that might occur.
