Roof Repair, Infrared
Steve and his crew were as thorough and professional as you'll find. The whole transaction could not have gone more smoothly and quickly from start to finish. I doubt that anyone else can offer the kind of same day, professional, flawless service at an incredible price that Steve was able to provide. While I hope not to have to repair my roof again anytime soon, I know who to call when it's necessary.

Roof Sealants for Leaky Roofs

Sealers really are nothing more than a clear finish that has been altered to make it perform differently. What is added, or removed, from the finish determines what the sealer is and what it does. Primer, which is the sealer used with paints and pigmented lacquer, is basically paint or lacquer, that has an increased amount of pigment. Roof Sealing The sealant can be used for installation and maintenance of a roof made of shaped boarding or roof tile:

 • in places of isolation joints between open-ended exit points and roof sheets;
 • under ridgy planks and joints of a tent shape roof;
 • under a snow shield on a roof;
 • when installing the furring;
 • at lap seams;
 • at trough joints;
 • at a joint of a trough and a drainpipe;
 • at a trough end; Sealers are capable of doing a lot more than simply stopping up the pores of cracks in any surface.

They can be used as a barrier coats to seal in surface impurities like dirt, wax, silicon and natural oils and preventing them from leaking out of wood and through the finish. Sealers can act as bonding agents between two materials that may not normally adhere to one another. Roof Sealers are bright white, reflective, elastomeric roofing solutions for roofs that are not yet ready to be torn off and are capable of being restored back to their original quality.

EPDM, Modified Bitumen, Metal Roofs, Single-Ply, Polyurethane Foam, Smooth Built Up, or even Gravel Built-Up, we have a roof coating that can repair and restore your roof. Our roof coatings can even repair metal roofs to good as new condition. Once water finds it's way in through the gap and under the roof sealing material it works it's way downwards and can be the cause of water leaks inside a building. The water causes further condensation which is unseen and causes the steel sheeting to corrode. Elastomeric Roof Sealants Elastomeric roof coating is a 100% acrylic, highly elastomeric, titanium fortified roof coating formulated to provide a high solids rubber-like membrane. Designed specifically for use on metal, polyurethane foam, EPDM, APP, masonry, asphalt and wood surfaces, this elastomeric roof coating product forms a highly reflective barrier resulting in significant energy savings! Dries bright white. Boots, gloves, diving suits etc, have proven that rubber is the first impervious product that is totally waterproof. EPDM flexes and resists temperature changes, is totally resistant to atmospheric pollution, unaffected by UV light or ozone and extremely robust to puncture.

Unlike bituminous substances it does not crack, peel or become brittle with age, which has been proven with its use in sub zero temperatures in the These facts make EPDM rubber flat roof membranes the best installing flat roof sealant to fix a flat roof structure. Ideal for flat roof contractors or do it yourself flat roof home restoration. High-strength elastic roofing and sealing material consisting of at least one bonded fabric layer of organic material, optionally at least one further bonded fabric or bonded-fabric material layer of inorganic material, and a coating of bitumen on both sides, where the bonded fabric layer(s) is (are) impregnated with the bitumen, and where the bonded fabric of organic material has a certain area weight and a certain residual deformation after previous elongation.

The bitumen coating optionally can be made elastic by the addition of modifiers with sufficiently low glass conversion points. Other Roof Sealants A number of other materials are used to provide an air barrier at different locations in the house. These include specialty gaskets and tapes, as well as sheet materials such as polyethylene, spun-bonded olefin, rigid insulation, drywall, plywood and sheet metal.

Installation techniques are critical when using sheet materials as an air barrier. All edges, seams and penetrations in the sheets must be sealed. Tips on Sealing Some of the Leakiest Areas If you notice a draft through an outside wall electrical outlet, it must be sealed. (Some inside wall outlets can also provide leakage paths, so check them as well.) Turn off the power to the outlet by turning off the circuit breaker or removing the fuse. Check to make sure the power is disconnected by turning on a lamp. You will obtain a better seal if you caulk the gasket before installation. Place child safety plugs in seldom-used outlets. Some foam pads come with a gasket that fits on the safety plug. If you are installing an electrical outlet during a renovation, get a good seal by placing it in a special plastic box that is available from many hardware or electrical supply stores. Caulk the penetration for the wire, and seal the new air and vapour barrier to the edge of the box. Planners and roofing companies still face a big challenge in finding an inexpensive, time saving and durable sealing system for flat roofs on industrial buildings. Particular problems are presented by roofs with complex shapes and a large number of breakthroughs, such as air shafts and pipe supports. It is hard to get around these problems using conventional roof sheeting, especially as it is usually around the breakthroughs that the roof begins to leak.

What People Say About Us
Roof Repair
I decided to conduct my homework on area roofing companies over the weekend. Out of the four I had provide estimates, Roofer911 was the only one to answer the call and provide a review within 24 hours. Steve (co-owner) provided a detailed estimate and patiently walked us through each aspect of the estimate. With his price competitive (within 5% of lowest estimate) and my wife and I both comfortable with him, we went forward and hired him. His crew showed up at 7 am promptly and their foreman explained to me each step he planned to accomplish and the amount of time he anticipated it would take. The entire job was complete in less then one day (five hours). My wife and I are very pleased and happy we chose Roofer 911.
