Re: Get the snow off your roof
#1

Newbie


My roof is leaking badly due to ice dam and frozen leader to the gutter. Called my insurance company and explained my emergency situation, water dripping indoor, impact to 3 floors.

My insurance company called in A. Molly, they do all kinds of work including clearing snow off of roof and melting ice off of and unblocking the leader, according to my insurance company. But because many others are also having a problem with their roofs, I'm in que and they are planning to come on Friday at the earliest. (I don't know how much they charge, they will bill my insurance company direct for payment).

Good luck everybody.

p.s. Last week and other times before, I have gone up to my roof to clear snow but with icy/slippery conditions on the sidewalks yesterday and today, I did not want to push my luck and take on the risk. I'm leaving it to professionals with harness and proper protective gear.

Re: Investing in JSQ

I agree with ConstantReader and MC56 regarding Journal Square/ McGinley SQ Area. I just bought a 1 bdrm condo for investment a month ago and am just getting the apt ready for rental. I have it advertised on JCList as well. I think this area is great for investment and being walking distance to the PATH was one of the reasons I chose to invest here instead of the height.

Big, big thumbs up for PFA. I just had my Weimaraner neutered and it was a simple, satisfying experience. They are mostly about low-cost spay/neuter procedures, but they now do basic wellness services, as well. Even if you don't need to have a procedure done on your cat, or dog, you can help support PFA by buying your pet medications from them. Their pricing is good (below MSRP/list price) and by buying it from them, you are helping them provide their low-cost procedures. The staff is very, very sweet and helpful, and the vets (I have met two) are also very loving and caring towards the animals. If you have a car, the Hillside location is a 15-minute drive.


I found the above reference in searching for a Vet. Just took our 6 mo old goldendoodle for neutering at PFA. Totally agree with bodhipooh, we had great experience with PFA. We are very happy with our regular vet, Secaucus Animal Hospital, however felt $700+ for neutering was bit overpriced. When I read about PFA and how they are neutering/spaying specialists and they are affordable we cancelled our dog's neutering appt at Secaucus and signed up at PFA Hillside. They were having a march madness event where neutering and spaying cost was less than $100. Great experience and great deal. For more info check out http://www.pfaonline.org/hillside-nj/

I have used the services of Downtown Vet on 1st St., Hoboken Vet on Adams and on Washington, Tribeca Vet, and animal medical center in NYC (for two knee ACL surgeries) for my previous dog.

You may also want to email the fire safety supervisor at Bureau of Fire Safety, Department of Community Affairs. His email is gsmyth@dca.state.nj.us. He is very helpful. I had questions about fire escape codes as we have just bought a multi-family brownstone and wanted to make sure that I was in compliance with the code prior to my 5 year green card inspection. Mr. Smyth even mailed me the FTO bulletin on fire escapes.


Turtle, thank you for the information.

Well, the permit denial letter does not identify the law that requires the sprinkler system for multi-family of 4 stories. So, I have been googling to find out which law is applicable, I think it might be NFPA 13 but so far there is no copies online that are free, so haven't read detail to be sure. Maybe the public library or the fire dept might have a copy I can look at.

I also did find an article on the JCList about the State proposing to add sprinklers but in that article it sight applicability to buildings of six stories or higher and built since 1989. The author was Kathleen Lynn at the Record, curious as to where she got her info and if its correct.

Also, to respond to the above commentor, my brownstone already has fire escape in the back, a requirement for multifamily building in NJ. And I do not want to bribe any gov't official. If this becomes too problematic I would rather sell this home. Thanks for the responses.

Sprinkler Req'd by JC for Brownstone Renovation
#10

Several of you out there have renovated your brownstone and was wondering if you ran into this issue?

I submitted application for construction permit for my project: Demolish rear-existing 2 story enclosed porch, build new 2 story addition, new deck, new patio. And interior of owners duplex: new bathroom, kitchen, minor partition work and new MEP.

I just received a denial of permit letter from the construction department. They are requiring a sprinkler system in a building multi-family 4 stories. My building is a four story brownstone, legal 3 family home.

Have any of you or anyone you know successfully appeal this requirement? If so, how?

This has been a very long renovation process and I feel like I am at my wits end. I love JC, neighborhood, and neighbors, but I don't know if I can fight this system longer. HELP Please!!!

Frustrated homeowner.

I used Kelly's Tree Service last year and they were prompt in responding to my phone call, and fast/clean in taking down 5 trees in my backyard in Hamilton Park area. The price was very reasonable, as well.

There number is 201-436-9501 and cell phone 201-980-5724. They give free estimates and are fully insured. I even checked with their insurance company and I think the coverage was a million or two.

Good luck.

Re: Green Roof?
#13

Worm:
That sounds great, I hope you get to green your roof. I too have thought about it for my 4 story brick row home but decided not to, for now. Access to the roof was my issue. I would need new stairs with door leading to the roof, which means getting an Architect and getting all of the approvals and then finally construction prior to starting the green roof. My current roof access is ladder leading to the original(c. 1850) skylight.

For your stand alone garage, how do you plan to access your roof?

Here are some interesting sites and articles to consider.

Green Roofs Meet Environmental Objectives

http://www.edcmag.com/CDA/Articles/Co ... 0VgnVCM100000f932a8c0____

Within this article they talk about, Green Roof Modules

w/ excerpts, as follows:

According to Linda Velazquez of “greenroofs.com,” an independent consultant, the modules add different alternatives and advantages than the traditional layered system, which includes: a roof membrane; a couple of layers of matting that allow water to flow through and maintain air flow; then a drainage medium (gravel or filter fabric or soil).

With modules from GreenTech, Velazquez says: the green roof is removable and the modules replaceable, which may be very helpful if the roof develops a leak; they are made of high-density poly-ethylene (HDPE), and reinforced for excellent structural strength; GreenTech’s modules are 81⁄2 inches deep and can be crowned with soil up to 3 feet deep, allowing a wide variety of plant material to be used, including turf, trees and shrubs; different trays can be planted for different needs (for instance, plants like specific types of soils — more or less alkaline or acidic — giving the designer more latitude in plant selection and creativity); and condominiums and apartment buildings can use them for community gardening — everyone having their own raised bed. Plus, they are easy to convey up to a building’s rooftop and install. They can either be delivered empty and filled once on the rooftop, or delivered, via crane, fully planted.

“One reason I love the GreenTech module so much,” says Pearce, “is that it gives us the ability to turn a rooftop into a playground and create depth up there and still be able to move it if you have to.”



And it continues w/:

Indeed, Chicago’s Sadhu Johnston pointed to studies performed in 2003 at the Chicago Center for Green Technology by MWH Americas Inc. Not only was stormwater runoff greatly reduced by green roofs, but also the study showed that, during the warmest part of the day, green roofs were 19 to 31 percent cooler than conventional roofs; and during the coolest part of the day, green roofs were 14 to 19 percent warmer than conventional.



Heller says maximum weight on a New York City roof is 50 pounds per square foot. GreenTech’s modular system weighs 28 to 35 pounds per square foot when saturated. Before a green roof can be installed on an existing roof, both the condition of the existing roof membrane and the structural capacity of the roof need to be evaluated. Installing a layered system on a 1,000-square-foot brownstone takes two days to install, compared to one day for GreenTech modules, he says.



And Do check out www.greenroofs.com in which I found this link:
http://www.professionalroofing.net/article.aspx?A_ID=834#787

"So You Want to Roof Green"

One last thing, would you really want something that you would have to mow? When I was thinking about it I wanted plantings which are easy to maintain. Having mowed alot as a child, I didn't want to mow anymore. Not to mention, my neighbors or someone walking by below in front of my house would most likely not appreciate some blades of grasse falling from the sky. Hmmmm! Anyway, if you do get your green roof I want an aerial photo posted on this website.
