What People Say About Us
Roof Repair, Infrared
I had some storm damage to the aluminum fascia covers on my rake boards. I called Roofer911, within a few hours I received a quote for not only damages to the rake boards but they also inspected my roof and found that my builder failed to install sealant around the bathroom, plumbing and Furnace vents. I was skeptical initially until I received a call. During the call I was advised of certain problems that can occur when these seals were missing. Although I never admitted to Roofer911, the fact is, that I was experiencing the very issue nearly verbatim to how it was described. I was very impressed and decided to accept Roofer911ís quote. I was even more impressed when the damages were all repaired the same day! I was further impressed that I couldnít tell they were ever at my house except for the fact that the damage was all repaired. Excellent work! Thank you!

The Basics of Flat Roof Repair

Hire The Services Of Roofing Professional

Finding a leak and making repairs to a pitched roof is challenging enough; attempting the same process on a flat roof is nearly impossible. This is primarily because water damage on this type of roof will never show up anywhere near where the leak originally occurred.Flat Roof Repair The difference lies in predicting how the water will run. On a pitched roof, water will run where? Down. On a flat roof water runs - anywhere it has a mind to, which is why it will probably take the keen eye and experience of a professional roofing contractor to locate your leak and make the necessary flat roof repair.

The first step in is to get up there when the surface is completely dry. This climbing on top of a building is enough to make many folks run for the nearest phone to call their roofing specialist! Once you are on the roof, you can inspect for cracks or holes in the seams of the roof or flashing. Exposed nail heads are another place where water can get in and cause damage. You can also check for a ring of dirt or discoloration to the rocks or gravel that may signify a low spot in the roof where water tends to puddle. Check these spots for signs of cracks or holes as well.

Testing for leaks on a flat roof can be done - if you have the patience and a few hours to do so. It will require bringing a garden hose up to the roof and running it slowly at the drain points to see if a leak comes out of hiding.

Keep in mind that it can take many minutes before a leak on the outside will present itself inside. This process will need to be repeated over the entire roof, taking the better part of a day in some cases to discover the culprit. Once you find the point of the leak, you can begin the process of flat roof repair.

This is another point where many homeowners will opt to hire the services of a professional, since flat roof repair requires equipment that the average homeowner does not own and is rather expensive to rent or purchase. Many don't like the idea of spending hours doing handyman work a number of feet off the ground. To keep yourself safe on top of the roof, wear shoes with thick, non-skid soles and pay special attention to power lines located around your house. Do not use a ladder that is in need of repair and always climb one rung at a time. By following these steps, you can do much to prevent a potential accident.

Many homeowners opt to hire the services of a professional for residential or commercial roofing repair to ensure that the job is done right the first time.  We here at Roofer911 have plenty of experience in flat roof repair, and we will ensure that any problems with your roof are fixed and fixed right. Call Roofer 911 for all of your flat roofing needs.

Roof Repair
Steve returned my initial call promptly, and prepared a proposal complete with photos which was delivered electronically. He stated that the price would hold, even if more work that needed to be done was discovered during the repair. He is a man of his word! As the job progressed, the damage was more extensive than initially expected, and hence a 3 hour job turned into an 8 hour job. The roof looks great and I couldn't be happier.
