Hygrade Insulators, a Quality Award Winning Commercial and Industrial Roofing Contractor
French Street Development
With a roofing system needed on a building with a height of 120’ in a congested city atmosphere, French Street proved an interesting installation for Hygrade Insulators. Roofers would contend with high wind uplifts and many penetrations through the field of the roof. The solution was to install a fully adhered EPDM roofing system with FM rated fastening patterns at the perimeter, field, and corners. Strict safety standards and close communication with other trades made this project a success.
The NJ School Development Authority, provided a state of the art school to supply additional classroom space required and help promote education. A quality, long lasting roof, was installed by Hygrade Insulators.
Early Childhood School
The owner of the Early Childhood School needed a classroom space for pre-school children. Hygrade was called upon to put in a brand new JM 3-ply BUR system.
The Valley Hospital needed to utilize the space more efficiently. The solution? Make the area accessible to the general public. This could be obtained by removing the existing roof over the UMR building and replacing it with a 30 year Garland System and a green scape cap.
Both buildings have been neglected since the Coast Guard left the island years ago. The State and City of New York are now the Owners and are in the process of restoring all historic buildings on this island. Some of the buildings date back as far as the late 1700's. The Owner, Turner Construction and Hygrade take enormous pride in being part of the restoration of this historic landmark.
Preakness Healthcare Center
By choosing the correct architectural shingle design and installing the new roofing system to match existing conditions, Hygrade Insulators was able to install a roof that didn't affect the budget of the project and matched the aesthetics of the existing building.
The aging sheet roofing systems were allowing water to enter the insulation portion of the system, migrate through the original BUR and into the work space of the building. The existing roof also allowed water ponding which caused the interior of the building to drip for days after the rain stopped. It was necessary to completely remove both roofing systems and install the new seamless polyurethane roofing system during the summer break when the students were not present. This was possible due to the extraordinary efforts of the project's building team which consisted of key personnel from the owner, Architect, suppliers and Hygrade.
When Commerce Bank decided to build new offices around the Lehigh Valley, Hygrade was called upon to meet the vigorous construction schedules with their EPDM roofing system.
The federal government has not used this building since WWII. The decision was made to repair the building and not demolish it which saved the Government millions of dollars by preserving the existing structure. The new Bayer/GE roofing system used in the reconstruction will serve the owner for many years.

This fifty plus year old shopping center was do for a renovation, but its roof didn't want to cooperate with numerous leaks and an outdated building style. The solution was to install a combination of Polyurethane Foam and Metal which gave it a more efficient, light weight, modern design.
Great Neck Schools
For many years, this School District put off replacing failing roof systems on various buildings. When maintaining these roofs in a watertight condition got too costly, the District budgeted for total roof replacements. Over the last six years the Great Neck S.D. has replaced the roofs that posed the biggest problems with a new Bayer/GE Polyurethane Roofing System. The completion of North Middle School in 2008 is the latest school to receive a new Bayer/GE System.
