Furnished all craft labor, supervision and materials to remove existing gravel built up roof system. Replaced with liquid membrane system at six separate roofs with a total of 80,000 sq. ft., replaced 26 gravity vents and all of the flashing.
There were six different roofs within the scope of this project. The old existing material needed to be removed and the roof needed to be maintained watertight daily as the project proceeded. The existing roofing material contained asbestos. The material had to be kept wet while removal was in progress. All material had to be double bagged and placed into asbestos containers for disposal. A 130 ton crane was utilized along with two skid pans to lower old material from the roofs and to lift new material.
