FLAT ROOF REPAIRS

While each roofing system is designed and built differently, emergency repair methods can be more effective than others. Our expertise and knowledge of roofing systems give the proper and precise insights needed when identifying where the issue is occurring with the most suitable, cost-effective solution.

MAINTENANCE & PORTFOLIO MANAGEMENT

Preventative & General Maintenance is a crucial element on all commercial roofing systems. While your roofing system is out sight and out of mind, Austin Roofing America has a portfolio management plan suitable for your building and investment. Here are a list of hypothetical scenarios and issues are commonly found due to a lack of preventative maintenance. 

  • Heavy winds causing large tree limbs/branches to violently land on the roof in, cutting or damaging the membrane system upon impact, or, those tree limbs/branches piercing the new membrane if left over time. Over time these damages will spread creating a larger problem if not properly maintained or caught before the spreading occurs.
  • Service workers (h.vac mechanical companies dissembling the a.c units or conducting their own maintenance, etc) dropping the unit plates and tools on the roof resulting in cuts/splits and holes, over time, small cuts and holes will spread creating a larger problem is not properly maintained or caught before the spreading occurs.
  • A bundle of leaves accumulating on the roof during the fall seasons, plugging and clogging the flat roof drains resulting in a ponding water effect, which also damages the roofing membrane if left for a long enough period, seeping up or into elevated crevices. Over time these damages will spread creating a larger problem if not properly maintained or caught before the spreading occurs.
  • A overload scenario of snow accumulating on the roof as too much weight can increase the tension with overload around detailed areas. If this scenario occurs, these areas may not be noticeable during the winter months, but, begin to become clear once spring arrives. Over time these damages will spread creating a larger problem if not properly maintained or caught before the spreading occurs.
  • A overload of dust and debris builds throughout the roof eventually flowing with the water as heavy rain falls occur, it is common to see this dirt and debris built up in or around the drain coupling, if this scenario occurs in combination with another large piece of debris or leaf, that is enough to clog the drain or the gasket around the drain kit resulting in an overload around those details. Over time these damages will spread creating a larger problem if not properly maintained or caught before the spreading occurs.
  • Excessive foot traffic is rarely the direct cause of damages, however; having a constant stream of individuals atop the roof could lead to some careless behavior, a steady stream of individuals with small sharp objects stuck to their shoes for example, could lead to minor punctures or scratches while pivoting on the roof, which if left unattended could potentially lead to said punctures expanding, damaging the membrane and requiring patch work. Over time these damages are will likely spready creating a larger problem if not properly maintained or caught before the spreading occurs.
  • Vandalism, in some regions the threat of vandalism is a legitimate concern, though said damage may not be done to the roofing membrane directly, as mentioned above a steady stream of individuals (especially careless individuals) could over time lead to minor punctures which could potentially expand and require patch work. Over time these damages are will likely spready creating a larger problem if not properly maintained or caught before the spreading occurs.
  • Animals or creatures do have a tendency to make their way onto the roof. There are certain areas throughout Ontario where birds have a tendency to bite and pick away at reflective membranes. Over time these damages will spread creating a larger problem if not properly maintained or caught before the spreading occurs.
