Standing Seam Metal Roof, Avon Connecticut

  Today we went out to Avon Connecticut to inspect and repair a standing seam metal roof.  The skylights collapsed under the weight of the snow this winter, so we temporarily repaired them with a tarp, there are 16 skylights in all.

Roof Repair process by a roofing company

Roof repair is often a shot in the dark.  Finding where a roof leak starts can be a a process.  A roof very rarely leaks in the center of the shingles.  Most leaks are around chimneys, walls, and skylights.  These leaks are most often caused by improper flashing installation.  Many roofing contractors use tar to repair roof leaks, this is a very temporary solution, within months tar cracks and fails, and you have thrown your money away.

  Wind driven rain may often cause roof leaks near walls.  This happens when the rain gets behind the siding or flashing and enters the structure.  All of these roof  leaks can be repaired by a knowledgeable roofing contractor.  We are also a Connecticut flat roof specialist and offer flat roof repair and installation.
Please contact us at 860-942-3555 for a free roof evaluation and estimate.

TPO flat roof repair in Glastonbury Connecticut

  Today we did an emergency flat roof repair in Glastonbury Connecticut.  The owner of the property had the roof shoveled, and as we are finding more and more of, the roof was damaged by carelessness and a shovel.
  We were rather lucky with this roof repair.  The temperature was over 40 degrees, which is mandatory, and the roof was dry.  We first cleaned the damaged area of the roof with a solvent.  We then cut 6 inch pieces of Durabond roof repair membrane.  We then lightly scuffed up the roof, and applied the roof patch.  We then used a metal roller to help the patch adhere to the roof.  Roof repair complete.

  These roof patches are not a long term solution.  They are band aids, we will be replacing the roof in its entirety.  If you would like an estimate for a roof repair from a Connecticut flat roof specialist please contact us, 860-942-3555

Roof Repairs and Roof Maintenance in Hartford Connecticut

  When it rains outside and water enters your home or office you know that it is time for a roof repair.  There can be many causes for a roof to leak, ranging from missing shingles and ridge caps caused by storm damage, to a flashing or siding issue, that has only started to leak, or leaks under extreme situations, such as driving rain.
  There are several parts of your roof that are most susceptible to roof leaks.  Walls and chimneys often leak because the roof is not flashed correctly.  Roof valleys may leak if there is debris in the area that stops water from exiting the roof.  Sky lights may leak for many reasons, the glass seals may have failed, or often times the flashing fails.
  Flat roofs often leak during heavy rains because of the lack of roof pitch.  While flat roofs are easily repaired, many of these repairs and leaks can be avoided with proper roof maintenance.  Having a certified flat roof specialist, some knowledgeable in the type of roof that you have, will make significant differences.  The use of improper adhesives or patches, such as tar on an EPDM roof, will cause serious problems, leading to eventual roof failure.
  Please contact us today if your roof is leaking during these heavy rains.  We do offer emergency roof repair as well as roof tarping.  We are a fully licensed and insured  Connecticut Roofing Contractor, 860-942-3555

Roof installation in Glastonbury Connecticut

The home pictured here, located in Glastonbury CT, has approximately 5500 square feet of roof. We are removing asphalt shingles, installing ice and water barrier to CT state roofing code, on all valleys, eaves, and walls. Most roofing contractors fail to install ice and water barrier properly, at least 18 inches above the soffit line, with large over hangs we installed 2 rows of the barrier. Be sure to use a properly licensed and insure roofing contractor, who is also knowledgeable of all the details of proper roof installation and flashing.
