Tips For Your Commercial Flat Roof Replacement

We recently read a great quote: If you take care of your roof, it will take care of you. A simple sentence that sums up the cardinal rule of roofing.

We’re going to focus on flat roofs in this post, and offer some advice on how to check for signs of damage and what to do if damage is noticed.

Do I Need To Call A Roofing Contractor?

Roofs are arguably the most important component of a house. Without them, or at least a properly functioning one, the whole structure is compromised.

Keeping a roof in good condition and spotting problems before they become disasters, will save a home owner time and money in the long run. While many people are tempted by a do-it-yourself approach, it is not always the best idea. Roofing problems usually require a roofing contractor to fix in order to make sure it’s done properly, and for insurance and warranty purposes.

The sooner a home owner can spot a problem, the easier it will be to fix. Here are some common roofing problems to watch out for.

Summer Roof Repair Services

Aaaah. It finally feels like summer is here. After a long, rainy winter in Vancouver, you can almost hear the collective sigh of relief, and feel the general uptick in spirits as the sun comes out.

While we revel in the summertime sun, it’s also time to start thinking about summer home maintenance and repair. There are several jobs that are difficult to do in Vancouver winters so planning ahead to take advantage of the dry season will make life easier.

One important category is roof repair. Doing roof repairs in the summer makes a lot of sense. Not only that, summer brings its own set of challenges for roofs. In other words, there are roofing issues that occur in summer more often than the winter (which, of course, brings its own problems).

Best Roofing Material for a flat roof

By | Blog, Flat roof, Roof Repairs, Roofing Materials

Roofing Materials For Flat Roofs Can Vary

Flat roofs are exactly what they sound like, flat as a pancake, and are often found on commercial or industrial buildings.

Because of their inclination, or lack thereof, they are made of different materials than you’d find on most sloping roofs—they don’t require shingles or other familiar roofing materials, and instead are made of entirely different products.
