We know buildings.

Boston wood frame construction has evolved over the past 200 years. Flat roof three deckers have evolved as well. Prior to the 1920's wall studs were available over 20' in length allowing for a construction technique known as ballon framing. Fire risk and material constaints caused innovation and change. Later tree deckers used a modified platform framing method.

Rooofing has evolved as well. Original roofs were tar and gravel, hot mopped tar over impregnated felt, ballasted with gravel. Newer roof systems are lighter and tighter. EPDM is the most prevalent type of roofing for Boston three deckers.

We offer a wealth of construction knowledge and expertise in evaluating your buildings load bearing capacity and suitability for flat roof solar. We have the products and materials to protect the health of your roofing system. In many cases we can provide ballasted solar solutions that avoid the need for penetration of the roofing membrane.
