Examples are seasonal temperature swings that can be observed at Brampton, Toronto and the area can be ruining for the asphalt. It develops cracks or so, starts leaking, etc.
There are some quick fixes that can patch up these problems fast, yet they are temporary solutions. If you want your roofing to protect the building properly, you will need to employ a professional industrial roof repair service.
Preparation for a Good Repair at Oakville
Before anything new can be applied onto an old roof, it's necessary to do some professional inspection. Contact us at Royal Roofing Inc. at Richmondhill, Toronto and our trained experts will arrive to inspect your roof and give you some useful recommendations. It's necessary to remove all the old stuff that can be found on industrial roofs after smaller repairs. If you decide to do repairs with the help of EPDM membranes or torch on systems, it's necessary to complete the following steps:
- Dismantling of the old damaged roofing.
Bitumen industrial roofing materials are normally repaired by installing new layers one over the other, creating a big sandwich. It's possible that there are empty spaces between the layers of old materials. These spaces can be filled with rainwater. Being heated by the sun during warm summers or by the tools used for the repair, this water can cause damage to the roofing material. That's why it's necessary to find the problem spot, remove water, replace damaged parts of the roofing and fill the hole.
- Installation of a dash-bond coat.
Flat roofs are not perfectly flat because they have an incline that allows water to escape through gutters. The coat is necessary to give the moisture insulation a reliable base layer. If additional insulation is planned, the coat can be covered with an additional layer of underlayment or granular materials.
- Grounding of the surface.
It's necessary to create a proper adhesive layer that will provide a reliable bond between the roll roofing materials and the dash-bond coat.
- Installation of the modified bitumen layer.
If you wish, several layers can overlapping each other for more reliability. It's up to you to decide whether you can afford it and whether you need it. Our experienced specialists will be able to offer you advice regarding this matter and any other issue related to flat industrial roofing repairs.
