Flat Roof Repair
The majority of commercial and industrial buildings, will have a flat roof, though material, and application techniques can vary. TPO, EPDM, and even metal, are just a few of the flat roof application options available. Regardless of the products used, and depending on the quality of installation, flat roof repairs can become common, as the roofing system ages. With flat roofing deficiencies, come leaks, and occasionally irreparable damage, and due to the nature of commercial and industrial buildings, and what they tend to contain, this can become an expensive issue. In the past, every flat roofing system would have a unique composition, needing a unique roof repair solution. With our new waterproofing product, protecting your flat roofing system from damage has never been easier. Our waterproofing solutions are able to be effectively applied to almost any existing flat roofing system.
Despite the name, a flat roof is never perfectly flat. It should always be slanted, either towards the perimeter, or interior of the roofing system allowing for proper drainage. If a flat roof is unable to drain properly, this is where issues can occur, and you may wind up with a significant problem referred to as ponding. Exactly as the name would suggest, ponding is basically just the pooling of water, caused by heavy rains or melting snow, that is unable to drain due to an insufficient slope. With the issue of sitting water, comes the issue of rot and algae growth. These problems can cause severe deficiencies in the functionality of your flat roofing system, and can cause your flat roof, whether industrial, commercial, or residential, to fail far before its lifespan suggests. Leaks are also known to occur at the seams of your roofing system, especially if ice buildup is an issue. The best way to reduce the chance of these issues occurring, is to take the proper preventative measures. Such as having a quality waterproofing product applied during your roof replacement. Although this would be the ideal solution, our premium waterproofing solutions can be applied at anytime, regardless of the existing flat roofing material. In the past, an emergency flat roof repair could be incredibly costly, and disruptive to your everyday activities, especially in a work environment.

The ability to apply this product even during heavy rains, truly is a game changer, as we are now able to provide our customers with a permanent flat roof repair solution, even in the harshest of weather.
