What Makes Them Special
Flat roofs are specialty roofing systems. The reason behind this is they can double up as a storage area for things like your HVAC unit and other unsightly machines your business needs. This means the materials used must be stronger and better reinforced than other roofing systems. If either is not up to snuff, the system will fail, which can be costly in more than one way.
Flat roofs are known for their problem with leaks. However, if your roof is properly maintained, it can resist leaks. We recommend adding a coating to your roof as it helps seal the roof while boosting your energy rating. It is also highly recommended to have a maintenance program in place. That way, your roof is getting serviced year-round. This aids in preventing leaks and other problems from arising.
The Act of Replacement
However, choosing a roof replacement is no easy task. Considering a flat roof replaced accurately can be extremely difficult for anyone who does not have intimate knowledge of flat roofs. Honestly, flat roofs are not only our specialty but one of our favorite roofing systems to work with. As with any roof, an inspection will be done first. This gives us the firsthand knowledge we want to ensure the replacement goes smoothly, thus reducing stress for you and allowing us to properly build our plan of action. Once we are certain that there are no structural issues that need attention first, we will begin by gently removing anything that is attached to your old roof. Then, we will continue with removing the remainder of the roofing materials that are on your roof—stripping everything back to the studs. We will then replace every part of the roofing materials with new materials. Last, we will reattach the things we removed.
