Comments Off on Installation of Energy Efficient Roofing
By RoofMaster NYC (roofmasternyc.com)
Utilizing a true white granule based roofing material, the roof on 31-81 now delivers both long-wearing reliability and energy savings to those living under it. Among other benefits realized after installation, the building is cooler in the summers, cleaner and as a result, consumes less energy. In the United States, dwellings tended to be built with white roofs through the 1960s. Then, as air conditioning became widespread, cheap, and taken for granted, priorities shifted. It became popular to use darker roofing shingles, which more resembled wooden shingles and better concealed dirt and mold. The colored granules on typical “white” shingles made today are coated with only one-sixth as much white pigment as in the 1960s. Under the summer sun, modern roofs can become up to 20°F hotter than the old-style ones.

Comments Off on Completing the 2005 Renovation
The previous owners of 31-81 had started a huge fix and flip renovation effort shortly after acquiring the in 2004. Work that had started in 2004 had stopped in the months leading up to closing. Immediately after taking ownership of the property, we set to work with a licensed/bonded/insured team of professionals comprised of engineers, plumbers, electricians, landscapers and masons to both correct the earlier work and complete the overall project.
