Multifamily buildings have evolved to more than apartments. Class A, generally new buildings, have become a housing and working hybrid solution. Amenities have expanded in order to attract tenants looking to live in desirable locations. These buildings are not only for inhabitance but can also include retail space or a vast selection of mixed-use opportunities. The housing shortage has seen investors turn to Class B multifamily properties as a chance to renovate buildings, thus upgrading to a Class A.

How does this all involve commercial low slope roofing? In both situations roofing comes into play. Class A multifamily building new construction continues, and Class B buildings tend to be older needing a roofing system replacement.

IRMA systems are inverted roof membrane assemblies. For multifamily buildings, this could be either a roof top patio or balcony. JM offers membranes to go beneath the paver system to help create a waterproof barrier.
