This project consisted of multiple roofing crews working in a high density residential area. Knickerbocker replaced the existing shingle roofs and structural plywood roof decks with new plywood decking, self adhered bituminous membrane, #15 asphalt felt, GAF roof shingles and pre-finished metal trim. Bi-weekly meetings were held with the architect, property manager, facilities manager and Knickerbocker staff. A drawing was prepared and maintained showing when and where the roof replacement work was being performed throughout the property. In addition, each residence received a notification as to when work would be performed on their residential unit. Safety of the residents and workers was priority #1 in all discussions. All work was performed ahead of schedule and on budget with only a minor inconvenience to the residents. For more information or to request a custom quote, please contact us today.
