Fixing A Roof – Three Key Tasks
To talk a little bit more in-depth about what we do on a regular basis, let's look at some scenarios that property owners might have.
The first one is a problematic skylight in the ceiling of a room or space.
Over time, the flashing can come loose and admit moisture or even pests. Ice dams can create skylight problems as well. Excessive moisture can compromise the footprint of the skylight and require professional work to repair the surrounding area of the building.
Roof Pen Testing
In this scenario, the property owner has a leak that can't be easily pinpointed, or assessed at its point of origin.
What we often do is apply a type of roof penetration test with a power washer. That requires simulating heavy rainfall and helps in figuring out where water is coming in. Then we put together a treatment plan for your property.
In the third scenario, somebody has a roof that's just generally weak or vulnerable across the board. They may have a traditional structure that doesn't have modern sealing or coating in place.
The coating is a comprehensive solution to make sure that there is an adequate barrier for moisture and precipitation and also support for the underlying insulation that prevents cool or hot air loss.
So these are three things that we do in local buildings, and there's a lot more that we consult on with local property owners. In other words, these are some of the things you might be considering as you look at your roofing areas and try to figure out why there's a problem and what to do about it.
In general, as we said, coating is a more comprehensive solution – for every part of your building that has vulnerability.
Basically, it's important to find a good firm that is licensed, insured and bonded, so that you know you'll get the work done the right way and protect your building.
Otherwise, you can run into some unpleasant surprises along the way.
Some states have homeowner and contractor conflict resolution boards in place, and some don't, so check the rules in your local area.
