ELIMINATING ROOF LEAKS THROUGH FLAT ROOF REPAIR
Many facility managers and companies today think when their commercial roof gets bad enough and begins to leak enough, they must replace the entire roof, or simply patch the area surrounding the leak. If a facility manager chooses to replace their roof, they are going to face significant costs, labor, down-time inside the facility, and the realization that the replacement is still not a solution to their problems, but a bandage.
Commercial Flat Roof Repair: The Alternative to Replacement
If a roof is leaking, the answer may be found in commercial flat roof repair solutions. Rather than replace the entire flat roof, coat it with silicone. Putting a silicone coating on the roof will make it 100% waterproof and will come with a warranty if purchased through Progressive Materials and installed by one of our Certified Licensed Applicators.
Commercial flat roof repair, as opposed to flat roof replacement, provides a true solution to the problem of roof leaks. No matter the roofing substrate, if it is not a seamless solution that can resist ponding water, it will leak. This is a problem building owners have faced for decades: roofs leak. The only questions regarding roof leaks are when will my roof leak and how much am I willing to put up with? If your roof is leaking and you have reached the tipping point, don’t replace it and spend valuable time and money on the roof, but use our commercial flat roof repair process.
Can a Patch Fix My Roof leak Problem?
Another common alternative chosen when a roof leaks is to patch it. Locate the leak, go up on the roof and patch the area around the leak. This seems to be a good option, but the problem is two-fold. The flat roof will still leak, because it is the same roof that sprung a leak in the first place. It may be leak-free for a while, but that leak will be replaced with another leak eventually. The second problem is that your patch may not be effective. It may slow the leak for a while, but eventually water will find its way back under the patch and through the hole.
Don’t waste money replacing your entire roof, but also don’t waste money only patching the leak. Instead, utilize our commercial flat roof repair process. We apply a 100% seam-free, 100% leak-free coating to the roof that costs less, is applied and completed faster, and will provide better peace of mind to you as a facility manager.
