Man Jumps to Death From Roof of Standard Hotel in Downtown L.A.

“Because there’s no criminal investigation involved it has been deemed a suicide,” an LAPD spokesperson says

The 24-hour party vibe of the Standard Hotel in downtown Los Angeles ground to a halt Monday afternoon when a man leaped 12 floors to his death from the hotel s rooftop lounge.

The incident occurred as guests crowded the rooftop pool, seeking to cool off during a mid-September heat wave in which temperatures hit the mid-90s.

A Los Angeles Police Department spokesperson confirms to The Hollywood Reporter that a call was placed at 3:49 p.m. alerting them to a male victim who jumped from the roof.

The man landed on the sidewalk outside the hotel on the 500 block of South Flower Street. His name and age have not been released by police.

Because there s no criminal investigation involved it has been deemed a suicide, the spokesperson said. It s now in the hands of the Coroner s Office.

A spokesperson with the L.A. c oroner s office said no further details were yet available. A woman who responded to a call placed to the Standard s front desk said the hotel had no comment on the matter.

Owned by hotelier Andre Balazs. the downtown outpost of the Standard opened in 2002 in what was the Superior Oil Company Building, a steel-and-marble modernist structure originally built in 1956. The building was added in 2003 to the National Register of Historic Places.

The hotel s debauched rooftop space replete with DJs, bars, a pool and intimate waterbed pods that encouraged commingling among guests instantly became a hot draw among Hollywood scene seekers.

In the years since, Balazs has opened another Standard in Miami Beach and two more in New York City.

It was in one of the latter a tower straddling lower Manhattan s elevated walkway known as the High Line that Jay Z famously got into an elevator tussle with sister-in-law Solange Knowles as wife Beyonce looked on.

Roof Repair Cost

Garage roof replacement cost

Garage roof replacement cost

Garage roof replacement cost

When a roof begins to leak, it may need to be replaced. However, on an otherwise sturdy roof, a repair of a small area may be all that is needed.

  • Repairing a 10×10-foot square of asphalt shingles, considered one square of roofing, runs $100-$350 using a roofing company. Repairing a few missing or broken asphalt shingles through a handyman service runs $95-$127.
  • Reparing wooden shingles using a roofing company for a 10×10-foot square costs $210-$1,000. Repairing a couple of broken or missing shingles using a handyman can run $135-$175.
  • Homeowners can take care of individual broken or torn asphalt or wooden shingles, according to Better Homes and Gardens.

Related articles: Gutters, Gutter Cleaning

  • Roof repair jobs should include the installation of new shingles, sealing with a roof cement product and cleanup of any old shingles and debris.

Additional costs:

  • Flashing is the metal or vinyl stripping that acts either as a sealed barrier between the roofing material and chimneys or skylights, or when the roof slopes into a valley where the flashing material helps water run off into a gutter system.
  • When the vinyl or metal flashing that seals the edge of a skylight to the roofing material tears or is pulled away from the skylight, a leak will appear and costs $300-$500 to repair.
  • Valley roof flashing, which is used anywhere on a roof where slopes create a valley where water drains off, runs $15-$25 per linear foot to repair.
  • Faulty flashing around a chimney is priced $200-$500.

Discounts:

  • Some roof repair companies offer senior citizen discounts of 10-30%.

Shopping for a roof repair:

  • While roofing companies generally handle larger jobs, some services will take on small repairs involving only a couple of shingles. These smaller jobs may also be tackled by the homeowner or a handyman.
  • The National Roofers Contractors Association offers an online locator for members across the country.

The contractor had a lot of fancy forms loaded on his IPad, I was impressed and he asked me to sign his form so that he could talk directly with my adjustor, this made sense as I was real busy but I proceeded to tell him I would be getting estimates from other companies as my agent told me to do so.

Several days later, the adjustor came out the contractor met with him and I found out my roof was 30 sq. My husband asked how much his estimate was he said what ever the insurance is paying plus your deductible, paid to me.

How to Patch a Single Ply Membrane Roof: 8 Steps (with Pictures)

How to Patch a Single Ply Membrane Roof

Single-ply membranes are widely used for commercial roofing applications. The ease of installation, ability to solve complex roofing details and energy benefits have led to their overwhelming success. However, it is important to continually perform visual inspections as often as needed, depending on roof use and traffic, to assure it is functioning properly. Upon finding any punctures or tears, a temporary, simple Wikipedia: self adhering butyl tape patch that may be applied to repair the membrane until a patch can be more permanently heat “welded” in place.

Steps Edit

Identify the problem. Find the injury in the single-ply membrane.

Decide on the part to be cut away. Remove damaged membrane and insulation.

Replace insulation if needed with like material. Here insulation was used as a kind of underlayment.

Clean the membrane where the patch is to be applied. Start with a simple, all-purpose cleaner/degreaser, such as 409 or Simple Green.

Remove any soapy film. Rinse and thoroughly dry the area to be patched.

Line up patch correctly. Work across peeling away release film in stages while pressing in place as you go.

  • One source of this material may be a building supply center or a recreational vehicle supply store.

Roll the butyl backed tape firmly into place. This requires utilizing a firm roller to assure contact.

Caulk around the edges of the patch with a bead of polyurethane sealant and cover the seam consistently. Notice on the left where the sealant is beginning to be spread only slightly to be sure it is still thick but well guided into place.

Tesla unveils discreet new rooftop solar panels #tesla, #tesla #solar #panels, #new

Tesla unveils discreet new rooftop solar panels

Elon Musk s solar roof tiles won t fit the bill for every home. Some homeowners won t want to replace their entire roofs. but Tesla. of course, already has a solution. They re now marketing sleek, low-profile solar panels that are easy to install and better blend in with roofs than traditional panels.

Leave it to Tesla to offer an elegant alternative to traditional solar panels. They updated the Energy section of their website over the weekend to include new images of their solar panels. The seamless look of the new technology is thanks to integrated front skirts and no visible mounting hardware according to Tesla s website. Electrek said these features come from Zep Solar. a mounting equipment company SolarCity acquired before Tesla s acquisition. Zep Solar engineers designed the rail-less system Solar City employed to slash solar installation times in half.

Tesla says their panels exceed industry standards for durability and lifespan on their website. Panasonic will be manufacturing the exclusive panels at the Gigafactory 2 in Buffalo, New York. There aren t many specifics available for the new solar panels yet, but Electrek said they will be 325-watt panels. They noted Panasonic sells other 325 watt panels, and those have a 25-year power output warranty and a 21.76 percent module efficiency.

Tesla and before that SolarCity used to install solar panels from multiple suppliers as many solar companies do, but told Electrek once these new panels go into production, Tesla will use them for all residential projects in the future. It seems Elon Musk aims at offering solar solutions with better aesthetics for those who have been hesitant to go solar in the past with the bulky rooftop options.

Anyone interested right now can request a custom quote on Tesla s website. The company told Electrek production should begin this summer.
