65 Roofs Completed

78 More Under Construction

On April 5, Mayor Bill de Blasio announced the completion of 65 new roofs on NYCHA buildings, benefiting the quality of life of almost 13,000 residents by reducing leaks and mold.

“Residents may never see the new roof over their heads, but they will feel the difference. We are targeting a major source of leaks and mold, making kids healthier and helping parents sleep easier. With the right resources, we can deliver real-time improvements to the quality of life for thousands of families,” said Mayor de Blasio.

At Queensbridge Houses, the country’s largest public housing development, all 26 roofs have been replaced for the first time in more than 30 years. The Queensbridge roofs were part of a major roof replacement project begun by the City in 2015. The first phase of the project included 65 roofs which cost about $91.5 million to replace, coming in $8.5 million under budget. Seventy-eight additional roofs, costing $100 million, are under construction and will be completed by June 2019.

Joining Mayor de Blasio were NYCHA’s General Manager Vito Mustaciuolo, Queensbridge Houses Tenant Association President April Simpson, other residents, and elected officials.

Leaky roofs are responsible for key sources of water and excessive moisture that causes mold in apartments and weaken a building’s physical structure. The Mayor has dedicated $1.3 billion to repair 950 deteriorating roofs for 175,000 NYCHA residents.
