energy_code_bitumen_roofing_installation_large-1With Chicago’s Air and Water Show only a few weeks away, Knickerbocker Roofing & Paving Co. Inc. was contracted to install an energy code compliant roof system with a new patio deck atop a nearby condominium. The client required that the project on the near northside of Chicago be completed by the show date, with no disruption to the building’s residents.

Taking on challenging projects and answering complex requests is our specialty.  We took on this project with confidence that our skilled workers, experience, and quality would shine throughout this project. Our first task was to remove the existing 7,800 square foot roof. When it came time to install the Soprema modified bitumen roof system, we hoisted all of the materials 30 stories up over the side of the building to ensure minimal disruption to residents. Finally, we replaced the wooden sundeck with a new concrete paver system.

This project was successful from many angles. We completed the roof removal and installation, as well as the sundeck fabrication, prior to the Air and Water Show. All of the work was done without any adverse effect on the building residents. The roof was installed with precision and quality workmanship. The client was extremely pleased with our professionalism and performance.
