Ice and water leaking into shingle and flat roof in London Ontario

We were out at a home in London Ontario, where we have a flat roof tying into two shingled roof sections of a residential home. This job made us scratch our head a little, a roofing contractor who had been on the site previous had installed shingles on the flat roof section. Sadly, this isn’t the first time we have had to fix this sort of problem before. Needless to say, the flat roof section was not doing it’s job […]

Flat Roof watertight membrane installation Strathroy Ontario

This was a flat roof that had several compromises in the membrane that needed some expert work. There had been some splitting in the membrane due to freezing, thawing causing expansion which was causing the owner issues, a drain that wasn’t draining properly, and a huge gap under the drip flashing between the exterior brick wall and wood framing. We had to create a new waterproof section of roof in an existing 4ply built up roof, so we had to […]
