Our Latest project, is unit 400, off Manchester Trafficway in Kansas City, MO. The current phase, demolition! Using a case loader, skid steer, and an excavator, this old abandoned building will soon be nothing but a pile of rubble. Here is the kicker, our guys accepted the challenge to have it demolished, in the safest way, in 30 days! Its safe to say they aren’t wasting any time! Check out some of the pictures sent in by Project Manager Ryan Lengyel, who is monitoring every move to make sure this is done in the most safe and successful way possible.

Is your HVAC system causing more harm than good?

If the temperature outside where you live, is anything like its been this summer here in Kansas City, MO., then I think it’s safe to say you appreciate every minute in the A/C! I know I do, Especially when the Humidity readings are in the mid 100’s!

That having been said, have you inspected the condition of your current HVAC system lately? A few questions to ask yourself,

Have you noticed your energy bills climbing over time?

Is your air conditioner, boiler or furnace constantly running?

Is your HVAC system over 10 years old and doesn’t seem to keep you cool like it used to?

There is GOOD news! You may not have to replace your whole HVAC system; Making sure your place of residence or business is properly insulated and all air leaks are sealed will help you A//C run more efficient.

If you aren’t sure what exactly to look for, I would recommend calling in a professional to do a walk through, a poorly functioning HVAC unit can cost you more than money, it can cost you, your life!

Did you know, an improperly sized or improperly installed HVAC system could leak carbon monoxide into the air?! It also promotes mold growth which leads to chronic illness, and could even start fires!

A walk through with your HVAC specialist of choice could mean as little as a clipboard and checklist, or a more in depth audit with a blower door test. This test pressurizes the house/building so energy leaks can be detected. In some areas, Electric utilities subsidize the cost of energy efficiency assessments.

Take a gander, Does your tech have a “NATE’ patch? (North American Technician Excellence) find out the benefits at http://www.natex.org/site/300/Technicians

Your HVAC tech will also do a load calculation. Many variables are included into this calculation, not just the size of your home or business. The size of your system will be determined after calculating local weather, ventilation needs, and insulation levels, to name a few.

If your HVAC professional cannot do a proper load calculation or does not adhere to the quality insulation specifications, I urge you to seek a professional who will! Your health, your safety, AND your bank account may depend on it!

Here’s a Fun fact! In some states, rebates and discounts are available for having insulation installed or other work done to make your home more efficient. That’s awesome!

Is it time to replace your roof?

 

roof-leaking-water-damage

Here are 7 signs that your commercial roof needs repaired or even replaced!

Moisture issues– If you roof isn’t 100% watertight, moisture can enter in and cause many more issues for the over all environmental control system of your building; A good way to know if you are facing moisture complications is to check for the following:

1. Your building is overly humid

2. Water stains on the ceiling

3. Insect and rodent troubles

Those examples are good indications water is coming through the roof, soaking into your insulation and flowing down inside your walls.

Sagging– If you spot sagging, this means your problem lies beneath the surface of your roof. This could mean your roof deck joist have broken, it could also mean poor standing insulation.

Open Seams- Seek commercial roof repair when the mechanical fastenings are no longer holding seams sealed or the previous chemicals used fail to keep the water out.

Higher Energy Bills-If you have noticed your electric bill getting higher, this is also a good indication you need your roof replaced. To break it down, The reflectivity of your roof is gone, causing your cooling system to kick into high gear to maintain the temperature inside. If you find yourself having this issue, get in touch with a professional right away. There’s nothing worse than watching your hard accumulated income go right down the drain!

Notice any bubbles? If you are ON the roof, investigating its current condition and notice any bubbles, this is a definite sign you need your roof replaced. Most bubbles come from moisture building up under the top layer of any built-in roofing and chemically adhered single ply roofing. The more bubbles you see, the faster you need to get it replaced.

insubstantial Flashing – To inspect this possible issue, you must be on the roof. If you find the metal is missing or out of place, it needs replaced right away. Places to check for damaged flashing is at the roof piercings, around the parapet and any place the roof level changes.

Clogged Drains– While checking scuppers, and interior drains (these allow water to begin ponding) If you see areas that contain more standing water than other areas, this is a very good sign that there is a clogged drain or downspout close.

CRG is knowledgeable and available 24/7. If you find yourself in a situation, fitting into any of the above classifications, Don’t hesitate to reach out to us for both replacement and repairs.

Atlantic’s New Parking Lot and Drive-In Door

We just completed rehabbing 400 Atlantic’s employee parking lot, as well as, their truck court and warehouse employee parking lot. Instead of removing and replacing all the old asphalt, we kept the owner’s costs to a minimum by just replacing what was needed and performing crack seal and seal coating to restore the lots look. Then we topped it off with a fresh stripe job to make the lot really pop. The owner of the building is extremely pleased with the end result!!

We also installed a brand new 12’x12′ overhead door, along with a 30′ wide by 60′ long drive-in ramp on the far Northeast side of the building allowing forklift, box-truck, van, etc. access into the building.

  • overhead door repairs
  • existing office demo
