Flat Roof Inspections

Detecting and repairing and problems that pose threats to your flat roof fixed before winter is not only smart, it helps prevent serious damage, saving you money in future costly repairs.

Roof Leak Investigations

Quite often, when you notice water leaking into your building, the damage has already been done to the underlying structure. Water can take its time and pool up under the damaged areas on the roof, eating away at the structure until it finally breaks free and starts to leak inside. This only leads to costly structural repairs and replacement of insulation and waterproofing membranes.

We often get calls from commercial industrial property owners complaining that water is leaking onto inventory or machinery from the roof overhead. When we arrive to have a look at the problem, we often find the flat roof has either been poorly maintained or installed with low quality workmanship. We also find that the leak has been present for some time, and some of the roof trusses are rotten or the flat roof decking has completely rusted or given way resulting in the need for the total replacement of the roof. Had the property owner invested in a roof maintenance plan, these issues would have been noticed and the problem would have been fixed before it got out of hand. Instead, thousands of dollars are required to repair the structure and replace the entire roof.
