The roof is the part of the structure that is the most exposed to extreme conditions such as rain, snow, hail, wind, sun heat, and constantly changing temperatures. All of these extreme conditions in time causes the roof to damage. The real lifespan of the roof usually depends on the climate, and the materials used, and other factors. A roof can last something between 15 to 30 years, however, there are places where a roof can last even over 100 years. But in the normal cases, a building will need at least one roof replacement in its lifespan.
Bituminous Membrane Roof Repair
Trying to repair the existing bitumen roof is one of the most common ways for a roof renovation project. Bituminous membrane roof often sure a longer life expectancy. And this is true especially when frequent layers are added because that's where the membranes will become higher quality reflecting for the heat and the light from the sun. Adding several layers of bitumen over the old layer will ensure that the roof is more waterproof but it will also require a little bit more work. However, the process is done without needing to use heat and will increase the fire resistance on the waterproofing of your roof.
Metal Roof Repair
Metal roofs are some of the longest-lasting roofs in the market but they have a frequent need for repair. Some of the most frequent needs for repair come from metal corrosion, metal expansion, or contraction over time due to frequent changes in temperature, condensation, storm damage, or loose joints which can lead to loss of the waterproof abilities. Even though metal roofs are particularly expensive if they are not maintained frequently they can lead to further repairs needed.
Single Ply Membrane Repair
When it comes to roofs based on cost efficiency mechanically fastened ones are usually the best especially those that use polymeric sheet membrane. What particular about this roof is that during renovation or repair they can be installed really fast which saves time and they add up to the resistance of the roof. Single-ply membrane repair makes sure that the roof is also resistant to weather. Another very special thing is that no penetration of the existing roof is needed, a very low acoustic disturbance is produced during installation and it has a higher aesthetic appearance after the job is done.
Liquid-Applied Membrane Repair
Liquid applied membrane repair is a really efficient way to install or repair a roof especially for those that are looking at a roof for its waterproof features. The installation of the roof is done at a really short time and with the new technology that uses bitumen the repair of the roof is done without the need to close down the building. This is especially convenient when it comes to businesses.
