Improper roof repairs shorten the life of a flat roof system by allowing the problem to reoccur and additional damage to be done to the roof system resulting in a larger and more expensive repair the second time performed.
At DBS Roofing Contractors, our professional service team can quickly diagnose your problem and make recommendations to help prevent future ones from occurring. Our trained staff uses only the latest equipment, materials, and techniques when performing all commercial roof repairs. And all repairs are backed by a two-year warranty that states if the problem returns and it is a result of the work we performed we will perform the work again at no cost to the client.
The two greatest factors in the premature loss of life on a commercial flat roof system are no maintenance program and poor positive water drainage (ponding water).
A proactive approach (preventive maintenance) is critical in helping the roof meet or exceed its life expectancy. Identifying problems early helps minimize damage to the roof system caused by water infiltration and can help in prolonging the life of the roof system.
Ponding water is truly the biggest problem for flat roof systems here in South Florida. If not addressed at the time of roof system installation, it is often a difficult problem to remedy.
DBS Roofing Contractors can help in solving this problem by offering solutions such as rooftop drain installation, or the installation of a sacrificial sheet to the affected areas.
Thermal-Shock is a term used to describe the expansion and contraction process that occurs on all roof systems. Roof material expands and contracts at different rates over time. This compromises the seal between laps, transitions, and metal flashings.
In the summer time, the roof surface can reach or exceed 180 degrees. A 10-minute rain shower will rapidly drop the surface temperature. A short time later the sun is back out and the surface temperature begins to rise again, causing Thermal-Shock.
