How To Tie In A Flat roof With A Shingle Roof

This latest project was in early December in Lambeth Ontario for a residential home that had an existing sloped or shingled roof that needed to tie into a new flat roof that we had created. This one took a lot of work, we had to clean off the snow and then melt the snow and get the roof dry so we could work on it! We had to remove 2 courses of shingles so that we could create the transition […]

Flat Roof Hole Repair North London Ontario

This project was in the North end of London. Our client had a spiral staircase that led up through a whole in his flat roof that he had removed, and now wanted to cover the hole before winter set in.

Fix Flat Roof Bayfield Ontario

Today we worked on a cottage in Bayfield Ontario, working on a 420 square foot flat roof. This roof was well past it’s life cycle, the membrane was coming apart and chipping it had lost its ability to remain watertight. The membrane went underneath some shingles so we need to get the membrane under the shingles so that the water flows over the top. The nice part is the shingles were getting replaced in a couple of weeks which is […]

How to Tie In New Roof with Existing Roof

In this video we show you how to tie in an existing roof with a new roof to avoid any future leaks or issues, putting you back where you started. The roof I am working on in this project is a 4ply built up system with gravel on it. What you need to do is create a centerline, an area where the new roof is going to start. Chip away the existing gravel, exposing the stone underneath. If you don’t […]

St. Thomas Widows Walk Re-Roof

This client needed work done on one of the trickiest sections of roof we have worked on to date. This section was so high that it was unreachable by ladders, that we had to rent a 65ft Genie lift! The client was having water infiltration issues and we were called in for the job. There were a few sections – the flat roof is known as a Widows Walk, a flat piece of roof surrounded by very extreme angled roofs, […]

Tips & Tricks: Installing Metal Flashing on a Corner

This video shows you how to make the correct cuts to get a piece of metal flashing around a corner angle on a section of roof. First you must have the base sheet installed, then get a long section of flashing and cut out some triangle shaped pieces based on where you want the angle (see the video for more details). The flashing should be able to fold into itself based on the amount of space you cut out for […]

Sampson Flat Roof Project

This job was for a 400sqft section of roof, so a very small sized job, but incredibly detailed and tricky. This roof repair involved a window detail, vinyl siding and shingle detail. It took a lot longer than we had thought, as we needed to preserve all the existing shingles and siding. We then brought the membrane up under the siding and shingles with plenty of ice and water shield for a water tight seal. It was a tough job, […]

Roofing Tips: How to Heat Weld Membrane Seams

Legacy Flat Roofing & Sheet Metal How To Video: Heat Welding Seams On a residential home it’s always best to avoid using torches or hot asphalt. So our main practice is to use a technique of using intense heat to weld seams together. To do this you need a leister gun, which blows hot air, and a 3 inch roller. And we use the heat and the roller to adhere to capsheet layers together. If you are doing this right […]
