Work finally got underway this week. With cooperative weather, they could be finished within the next 5 to 10 days.
Unfortunately this weeks wet weather continued to delay start of the roof project. Fortunately, the seasonably cool conditions will not prevent work from proceeding. But any wet weather can hamper progress on a project such as this.
We received word however, they are now ready to begin. Workers are expected to arrive and mobilize tools and materials on Monday November 5th, followed by demolition of the existing roof. This will be the noisiest period.
With the cooperation of mother nature, they should be able to complete demo and installation of the new roof within 2 weeks or so.
Work is anticipated to begin next week sometime. We are told by the contractor to expect their team to begin weather permitting, mid-week. Any rain would delay their start and progress. For each day there is rain, you can expect an additional day of work on the back end.
If possible, the contractor hired by the Board – Knickerbocker – has indicated they will begin the roof project next Wednesday, October 24th. Their team working at Park Tower is presently finishing up another project and with cooperative weather could start here with demolition of the old roof beginning as soon as that Wednesday.
At the latest they would expect to begin Monday the 29th.
The gravel roof, about 3000 square feet, will be replaced with a white PVC membrane, much like other roofs at the 2nd floor level, northwest and southwest locations. This work is to help address some locations where we’ve had some pesky leaks, and where some pretty concerning deterioration has been identified.
Once they begin, they believe the work will be done within 2 weeks. Only rainy conditions would get in the way. Each rain day would push the timeline by one business day.
The first 2 to 3 days will focus on demolition and delivery of materials. They would also be the noisiest and dustiest as they are removing the gravel and bringing up the tar membrane below the gravel. Access to the back dock could be limited at times, where a dump truck will be parked and workers will be coming and going over the wall as work progresses.
Residents needing to come and go from the bike room will have to walk around this location for the duration of the project.
We appreciate everyone’s patience and understanding while this important improvement is being made.
