Northside, Ohio –
Located on Hamilton Avenue in Cincinnati’s historic Northside neighborhood. The Hammond North Building offers incredible views of Cincinnati from its 20 story penthouse units. The roof had been a sore spot for the owners for over 12 years. The roof, a gravel ballasted EPDM system, proved to be a challenge when searching for leaks and making quality long-term repairs. With this in mind, HKC designed a roof system to eliminate the need for the gravel ballast and focus on a system that would provide lower maintenance costs over the roofs life. We achieved this by vacuuming off all of the rock and fully adhering the new single ply TPO membrane to the insulation board. Tapered insulation saddles were constructed to help eliminate ponding waters in specific areas on the roof.
