Not too long ago, we were called in by a new client who needed an experienced Garland roofing contractor after another that was inexperienced in commercial projects botched the job. We met with the new client where we did a roofing inspection. We went over the leaking issues with the client, then offered several options and solutions.
The built-up roofing (BUR) system on the building needed immediate repairs. There was a severe leaking issue that they were experiencing, which simply could not be allowed to persist. Our team needed to repair open joints, repair some of the small blisters, and repair the crack that was causing the leaking. The client agreed to our solutions, and the crew started immediately.
Roofing Restoration is Immediately Underway
The crew first started to repair the open joints by adding cement under the open seam of the joints, this was to ensure that it would adhere to the substrate successfully. The crew then started repairing the small blisters on the roof. The small blisters were cut, then they had to dry. The felts were removed from the layer, then the crew applied new felt. After the felt was applied the crew then applied the liquid asphalt. The cracks on the roof were repaired by the crew first cleaning the gravel and debris from the crack, then applying asphalt cement over the crack, then adding the roofing felt. Once the felt has been applied the crew applied asphalt cement, then new gravel was applied. Cracks are one of the easiest repairs to make on the roof and an affordable repair as well.
The crew also added a few extra features to the roof such as a rigid insulation layer, which will provide a great roofing surface for the client. We were able to sort out all the messes that the client was experiencing with their roof and finish building out the roof, which resulted in a more durable structure that can prevent leaking in the future and mitigate long term damage.
When our crew had the commercial roofing repairs done and cleaned up, they let the client know that the roof was finished and now was in great shape. The client was happy with our quick response and affordable options. We let the client know that they didn’t have to worry about their roof leaking again, which was a relief to the client. He said that he had been experiencing this problem for quite a while, and he wished he would have contacted us first. He thanked us and a few weeks later when he called to let us know that after the recent heavy rain the roof is doing great and his business is dry. He told us it was all thanks to our excellent roofing expertise.
