It is important to note we have no relations or priority with any particular inspector and have provided links herein as a service.
The materials we use are guaranteed against a wide variety of problems, but just as with anything, the proper care and attention can ensure your roof for ages beyond any warranty.
We take every project seriously, and the signs of a building's wear and damage aren't always obvious. Moreover, the signs of a failed warranty aren't always apparant either.
The image on the left depicts a roof where the warranty no longer applies. The cap flashing (metal angle piece) shown here is in fact too short to reach the gravel surface where it would provide protection for the tar against the sun's UV rays.
In this instance the 'Water Ponding' is plainly visible. As this water freezes and melts, expansion occurs and slowly tears at the existing Tar and Gravel. As the building ages, and the interior load bearing walls settle (due to improper foundation compaction) the rooftop begins to sag. As this occurs, the initial drainage strategy no longer applies, hence water begins to pond, and cause further damage.
With our experience and expertise we can help spot the problems and advise effective, long lasting solutions.
We can show you the evidences, and we can educate you regarding their origins, and solutions as necessary.
Don't allow equipment service technicians to cut holes in your roof. They may know air conditioning, but they don't know Thermoplastic Layering, or Bitumus Membranes.
