It is not every day that a Beverly Hills home sells for $70,000,000, yes you read that correctly, seventy-million dollars! When handbag tycoon Bruce Makowsky set out to build the mega-mansion complete with eight bedrooms, 15 bathrooms, a 2,500 bottle wine room and 23,000 square feet of living space he wanted the best of everything. ARWP was brought on to work on the basement waterproofing and roofing of the high profile mansion. Collaborating with multiple contractors on a larger team we worked on the residence retaining walls, basement under slab vapor barrier, above grade waterproofing transitions and the basement car carousel. In addition to this we also executed the doors and window moisture barrier, roofing and sheet metal waterproofing integration.

ARWP, Allied Roofing & Waterproofing, Inc., was contacted by Mark Smith of Solar Forward, Inc. to provide roof preparation and solar penetration roofing at Mathis Furniture in Indio, California. The existing roof system is a Fibertite 36 mil thick thermoplastic roof membrane. ARWP is a certified applicator using their abilities and knowledge of different roofing systems to identify the most appropriate roofing product and coordinate with key individuals at Fibertite. As an approved applicator ARWP was able to extend the already in place warranty to include over 600 new roof penetrations. Upon completion the warranted Fibertite roofing system will receive a new certification from the manufacturer with the solar farm in place on the roof.
When completed the 2496 SunPower 327 Watt Solar Panels will produce 850 kilowatts with 32 SMA Tri-power inverters. It is estimated that the return on investment will be 5 years providing Mathis Furniture an additional 15 years under warranty. Interested in learning more about solar options, contact ARWP today!
ARWP’s Justin Ewart partnered with Architect David Hertz in the roof and waterproofing design and construction of a home comprised of 4.5 million parts of a Boeing 747. The 747 Wing House project is on a 55-acre property in the remote hills of Malibu, CA. Justin Ewart was contacted by Architect David Hertz for is expertise and creativity in roofing and waterproofing. Justin Ewarts final design plans incorporated using the products of two manufactures, Versico & PolyGlas. The ARWP team designed a Class A Fire Rated roofing system by installing a three-step process of PolyGlass Self-Adhesive membranes applied directly to the existing aluminum, composite, and wood substrates of the recycled wings.
We were able to achieve a Class A Fire Rating with the PolyGlass Self-Adhesive membranes without the use of fasteners or fire retardant sheet barriers. The use of fasteners for the roofing system was not an option as the fasteners would telegraph through the final layer of Versico TPO roofing membrane and be visible from the different viewpoints of the 747 Wing House. The PolyGlass Self-Adhesive membranes have a granular mineral surface, which provides a great point of adhesion substrate for the final layer of membrane, which was to be fully adhered to the PolyGlass membranes. Hertz wanted a roofing membrane to complement the original aluminum and composite substrate of the recycled wings.
The ARWP team provided Hertz with the Versico TPO (Thermoplastic Polyefin) “Grey” roofing membrane as it was the perfect product for the job. We fully adhered the roofing membrane to the PolyGlass membranes with water based VOC bonding adhesive thus eliminating the need for unsightly fasteners. We worked with Hertz to provide a suitable layout of the membrane as to replicate the metal panel simulation of the original aluminum and composite substrate of the recycled wings.
The real challenge was finishing the roofing membrane along the radial and knife-edges of the wings. In working with our sheet metal fabricator, we were able to design a TPO Clad metal as manufactured by Versico Roofing Products in which the membrane was fabricated fused to the aluminum clad metal. The metal was then custom fit to replicate the shapes of the radial and knife-edges of the wings. Our technicians then welded custom non-reinforced membrane between the metal and original installation roof areas.
The field membrane was secured with a 1″ wide aluminum termination metal beneath the custom clad metal perimeter edging thus preventing wind uplift as the 747 wing project sits at the top of a canyon above Point Mugu. The Versico TPO “Grey” membrane was not as reflective as the white membrane but did provide a Solar 747 Boeing jet. There was a reflectance of 46% after the initial installation.
In the end, the Hertz and owner Francine Rehwald were extremely pleased with the care and consideration that the 4myroof team, now Allied Roofing and Waterproofing, Inc., took into implementing and installing the first ever roof of it’s kind to the recycled wings of a 747 Boeing jet.
It is not everyday that a company is contacted by a homeowner with the request to build a net zero energy and zero carbon home. Robert Fortunato, Redondo Beach homeowner, wanted to push the limits of residential construction and create the Green Idea House case study.
Robert reached out to Justin Ewart and his team at ARWP to have them design the Green Idea House’s roofing system as well as install their solar stand-offs. Justin’s challenge was to ensure that his portion of the project met the project goals – to design a net zero energy and zero carbon home for less than standard construction costs. While at the time of construction there was a shift toward green construction practices, even a new law stating that all new residential homes must be net zero energy by 2020, but this was yet to be the accepted norm. When designing the roofing system it was important that the following objectives were achieved:
To achieve these goals, Justin Ewart selected a roofing system from a local manufacturing company that was less than 100 miles from the construction site. All leftover materials were recycled in a facility in Chino, CA reducing the waste that would typically end up in a landfill.
As a result of Robert’s vision, Justin’s and fellow subcontractors contributions, the Green Idea House resulted in:
Justin and his entire team at ARWP were proud and honored to be part of a ground breaking project. This project defied the industry standards developing a house 15% below standard construction costs and ultimately resulted in Net Zero Energy and Zero Carbon home.
