NYC Contractors: RoofMaster Re-Org (Roofing Contractor)

Submitted by on October 22, 2007 – 3:03 pm2 Comments

Just a note that RoofMaster, one of the companies listed on “Contractors Used and Recommended” started a process of a reorganization in late 2007 (before Oct) and might be focusing on green and solar roofing in the future.

RoofMaster performed the installation of a cold applied SBS white roof which utilizes a true white granule based roofing material. As seen on 31-81.com, the new roof now delivers both long-wearing reliability and energy savings. Among other benefits realized after installation, the building is cooler in the summers, cleaner and as a result, consumes less energy.  Additional details on the heat island effect, white and reflective roofs and the resulting energy savings from cool roof installation can be seen on the “Apartments at 31-81” website.

While originally covered by a warrantee, if the company is dissolved next year, so is the warrantee. Granted the work they did was outstanding, it still is nice to know that coverage is out there when you need it.

    Sniff sniff!

    Would be curious about their green options…..maybe they could work out our gutter situation too….

    Hey, Roofmaster is still working strong! I do have strong interests in green roofing and have been trying to break into the solar industry, at least as a roofer. No worries, your warranty is still good.
