Century Lofts Condominiums
Denver (CO) Roof Recover - 2020
The Century Lofts Condominiums building is a 29-unit midrise near Downtown Denver, that had been plagued with roof leaks into their penthouse units for several years. Early in 2020, their project team, comprised of members of their HOA, building envelope consultants, and property management company, selected Supreme as the roofing company most advantageous in implementing their project.
The agreed-upon solution was to implement a “re-skin”, which entailed complete removal of only the failing EPDM field membrane and all curb, wall, and penetration flashings. Much of the existing insulation was left in place, with only that which was wet or otherwise compromised being replaced. This not only helped to reduce the overall roof replacement cost to the condominium association, but significantly reduced the amount of landfill waste as well.
After removing the old EPDM membrane, our team installed a new Carlisle 60-mil EPDM ballasted roof system that included new curb, wall, and penetration flashings. The original rock ballast was cleaned and reused to control cost and to reduce landfill waste.
Working on a fully occupied residential building during the COVID-19 pandemic presented a unique set of challenges, and a key factor to the success of this project was effective communication with the HOA and their property management company, along with constant awareness of our surroundings and working conditions. The following review provided by Century Lofts Condominium Association member LaTonda Baratelli was very much appreciated:
“Supreme Roofing successfully completed a 9300 SF roof recover at the Century Lofts Condominiums in downtown Denver, Colorado this summer. They were professional and communicated with the HOA Board timely via emails and weekly conference calls. They followed the building’s COVID-19 guidelines, respecting the health of the residents. The inspectors were extremely pleased with the final roof recover granting all warranties. The Century Lofts HOA Board is pleased to recommend Supreme Roofing for your roof replacement/repairs.”
