Flat Roof Repair, Maintenance and Installation

Flat Roof Construction

It is ironic considering the importance of the need for a flat roof to protect the entire building, it's contents and occupants from water damage that most flat roofs have been the depository of the cheapest and lowest quality types of building materials known to man!

It's normal to see tar, tar paper, tar soaked fabric, loose foam sheets and latex, (water soluble), coatings on flat roofs with poor or no effective drainage. This puts a heavy burden of performance on those low quality materials, with all of their seams and weak points.

Now, top all of this mess with a layer of ballast stones to make it impossible to find the leaks! Is it any wonder that flat roofs are notoriously plagued with leaking problems even if these types of low quality roofing materials, with excellent drainage, are "installed correctly", and often they aren't?

Normally, flat roofs consist of concrete, steel, or wood substrates, heavily contaminated with tar combined with layers of loosely fitted tar paper. The tar paper usually has turned up edges and corners; it is warped and puckered, sun and heat damaged, and has protruding high points, irregularities, random seams, raised patches, tar deposits, stone ballast, etc.

Flat roof home owners must realize that it is not practical or cost effective to apply a high quality, permanent roofing system directly on these types of low quality materials. If installed upon a flat, clean surface the amount of material required to seal the same size roof surface could be ten times less than what would be required if installed upon a rough, irregular, contaminated surface. Also, the bond to the old low quality roofing products can only be poor and temporary at best.

The products we use can be applied in cold weather and exposed to rain or snow immediately after application. While tar expands and shrinks with heat and cold, the materials we use cure to a strong, solid, waterproof, adhesive rubber which does not change shape with temperature extremes.
