How to afford having your flat roof repaired

This project was on a plumbing store in Strathroy Ontario. This was a client we did some work for last year. At the time they wanted to budget accordingly to get their roof, so we advised them to repair the roof in stages, so we were back to complete the project this past weekend. If you are on a tight budget it’s a great way to slowly get a work done on your roof.

First we provided a full inspection of the roof and building envelope to make sure we knew what work needed to be done. The structure was okay, the insulation was fine and the roof hadn’t taken on any water, so we were able to move ahead and proceed with installing a waterproof membrane.

The work involved tying the old roof to the new roof system we installed. You can see the work we did last year. We primed the cap sheet and heat welded the seams, we were able to save the client money by lifting up the existing flashing and running the membrane under the flashing to ensure a waterproof finish.

All in all we installed around 1400 square feet of roof, and this will easily give the client another 15-20 years. If you want to know what he thought about the installation and our service, you can watch the video here.
