Repair and Maintenance

If you are having problems with your flat roof, it is important to have it checked out before it can cause damage to your structure and the contents inside. In many cases, it can be repaired, squeezing more life out of the existing roof. In some cases, you may require more than a repair. What you need is Weatherguard's expertise in analyzing and diagnosing those tricky flat roof problems so we can guide you to the right solution. We can diagnose and repair the following types of roofs:

EPDM (ethylene propylene diene monomer):

  • The most widely used material for single-ply roof membranes.
  • A synthetic rubber manufactured in sheets ranging from 0.030 to 0.060 inches thick and joined at the seams with an adhesive.
  • Vulnerable to petroleum products and plastic roofing cement.
  • It may be fully or partially adhered, or used in a protected membrane roof.

PVC (polyvinyl chloride):

  • A thermoplastic compound commonly known as vinyl.
  • Relatively inexpensive.
  • PVC sheets for roofing range from 0.032 to 0.060 inches thick and are joined at the seams either by solvent welding or hot air welding.
  • Vulnerable to ultraviolet radiation, petroleum products, and coal tar.
  • It may be fully or partially adhered, or used as a protected membrane.

TPO (Thermoplastic-Polyolefin):

This heat reflective and energy-efficient roofing membrane solution has become a popular alternative to the EPDM system.

For those roofs who's condition requires more than a repair, we offer an excellent and cost effective alternative to a roof tear-off and replacement. We can install a silicone-based roof coating system over your existing roof that looks great, extends the life of your roof, and does not require tear-off. Ask us about our roof coating options.
