London Ontario New Flat Roof

This week were in the West area of London Ontario, working on a residential flat roof that desperately needed a new flat roof. The flat roof was on a Florida room style part of the house, what we would call a simple project that would only take a day. There was vinyl siding on 2 sides of the roof, and eavestrough and drip flashing on the other 2 sides. As we said, it was a simple flat roof project, however […]

Strathroy Ontario 4 Seasons Sun Room Flat Roof Leak

This week we were out in Strathroy Ontario… during a heatwave! We received a call from a residential client who owns a 4 season sunroom, which was designed to be used all year around.

Many people who own portable trailers or trailer homes aren’t aware that you can use a regular flat roof membrane or system such as the ones you find on many commercial buildings on their trailer homes. Its a hugely effective way to seal up and waterproof your trailer if your trailer is leaking, and we have noticed a […]
