Rooflifters CEO to Speak at Los Angeles Economic Development Council

ROOFLIFTERS(TM), an environmentally entrepreneurial Company that rejuvenates older commercial buildings by raising their roofs for vertical expansion, today announced that CEO, Marty Shiff will speak at the Los Angeles Economic Development Council (EDC) to champion roof lifting as an affordable and environmentally superior solution to LA's obsolete commercial real estate property crisis.

"California is experiencing extremely low vacancy rates of 2.4 %. That's 7.3 % less available commercial space than the national average," said ROOFLIFTERS(TM) CEO, Marty Shiff. "With space at a premium, rents and purchase prices are soaring. Companies in California need warehousing space to distribute product but the low ceiling heights of many existing industrial buildings just can't accommodate such an operation. Our solution allows Companies to simply lift the roof of their existing facilities to gain vertical space without the cost or environmental waste of new construction."

ROOFLIFTERS(TM) technology works by placing their patented lifting post system underneath the main structural beams of a building. When the posts are welded in place, the columns, all services and other infrastructure are severed. The posts then hydraulically lift the entire roof of the building at one time at a rate of 6"-12" inches per hour. ROOFLIFTERS(TM) maintains the structural integrity of the building and laser monitors progress throughout the entire lift. Once the roof reaches the desired height, the structure is enclosed with metal, stucco, brick or block cladding. Columns, services and other infrastructures etc. are then re-attached.

"Rooflifting is quicker, less expensive and much less taxing on the environment than other methods for expansion of commercial and industrial properties," added Shiff. "Our rooflifting process retains 95% of the existing building components. In a typical demolition, nearly 100% of the building material would go to landfill," added Shiff. "By utilizing the existing building structure, there is no waste of construction materials and a significantly smaller environmental footprint."
