COMMERCIAL FLAT ROOF MAINTENANCE AND LEAK REPAIR
Aquashield Roofing offers superb shingle and flat roof maintenance and repair services for residential homeowners and commercial businesses all around the Tidewater district. Our residential roofing and commercial flat roof maintenance services consist of:
A commercial roofing contractor is different than your average everyday roofer. A commercial roofing company located that installs new roofs on big multi-million dollar properties where there is much more liability than working on your average Joe the homeowner's roof. Not to mention a flat low sloped roof, which is the most common roof to install for commercial roofers can be very difficult to keep the rainwater out of a commercial building. One reason is that a low sloped or commercial flat roof will in many cases obtain ponding water pockets.
When a commercial roofing company offering services near your location tears off an existing commercial roof system to install a new industrial roofing system there is a lot of danger and a big risk for a liability claim one reason why is because once the commercial roof system is taken off there is no turning back. A commercial flat roof can be hard to dry in or keep watertight is a storm happens to show up unexpectedly. There is a great deal of demand for commercial roofing contractors because of all the commercial roof maintenance that is needed on a large number of commercial buildings. Along with commercial roof maintenance, there are always common problems and tons of roof leaks that show up on large commercial flat roofs.
Technology has come a long way for the commercial roofing services trade. There are high tech tools such as an infrared moisture detector to find roof leaks in a vast area so that commercial roofers can save time and repair the moisture intrusion in a timely manner. Many commercial roofing companies have a multitude of high billing related expenses. The workman's comp and liability rates are often very expensive. Then there are also tools and trucks to maintain and a building to store products. A large percentage of commercial roofing contractors keep their labor rates low while keeping production high. This opens the door for faulty workmanship on a continued basis in the commercial roofing industry.
Almost all commercial roof repairs and new commercial roof replacements require cooperation from the weather before any work can be done especially when you are doing a flat roof repair. In the commercial roofing market place, there are different types of commercial flat roofing materials. There is TPO roofing, EPDM rubber roofing, SBS self-adhesive membranes, cold process modify, Low-quality roll roofing systems and torch down modified bitumen roofing which is also known by many as RUBEROID torch smooth surface or granulated. The name Ruberoid is a brand name for a torch down modify made by the GAF commercial flat roof material division. In no way shape or form is it rubber, It's an asphalt roofing product.
Our commercial roofing company will only install TPO membrane roofing or EPDM rubber roofing on commercial roof replacements in Portsmouth, Virginia. All of our flat roof replacements and new flat roof installations are all fully adhered not mechanically fastened.
At Aquashield Roofing Company our commercial roofing professionals will other products for commercial roof repairs to match the existing flat roof. We may use Eternal Bond tape, NP1 caulking, or SBS self-adhering membrane on a new roof project. We have also applied many commercial roof coating systems. There are elastomeric coating systems and a cheaper alternative product called aluminum coating. There are also other types of commercial roofing like commercial metal panels, cedar shakes, asphalt shingles, imitation tile, spray foam roofing systems, etc... If you have a commercial flat roof or if you manage an apartment building or church, call us anytime if you need a commercial roofing contractor.
SOME OF THE ROOFING MATERIALS WE USE:
We only use GAF products for residential homes. Because of the economic advantage along with a lifetime of efficiency the most common shingle product that we install is GAF Timberline architectural shingles. We install your GAF roof as a system by following the manufactures specifications and also installing any accessories that may be needed such as Cobra Ridge vent, Weather Watch or GAF Shingle-Mate felt paper underlayment. In some cases, we will upgrade and install Deck Armor protective underlayment.
Asphalt shingles come in two varieties: Fiberglass and organic. Fiberglass shingles are made of a woven fiberglass base mat, covered with a waterproof asphalt coating, and topped with ceramic granules that shield the product from harmful UV rays. Because of the composition of the fiberglass mat, less asphalt is needed to give the shingles their durability and strength. The result is lighter weight and thinner roofing material. Fiberglass shingles also have a higher fire rating than organic varieties and generally carry a longer warranty. Fiberglass shingles were developed in the 1980s, but have quickly become the roofing material of choice for most homeowners and contractors today.
The traditional organic mat-based shingles are made from a recycled layer of felt paper, asphalt-saturated for waterproofing, and coated with adhesive asphalt into which the ceramic granules are embedded. With 40 percent more asphalt than their fiberglass counterparts, the traditional organic mat-based shingles are heavier, thicker, and more costly. While organic shingles are considered more rugged and more flexible, they are also more absorbent and can warp over time. The additional asphalt content also makes them less environmentally friendly.
Our roofing company prefers to only install GAF timberline roofing products. It is the best roofing shingle on the market today and I give them an A for reliability. GAF has a full line of colors and accessories to match! There is also a lifetime warranty available for architectural roofing shingles. If you live in the Portsmouth, Virginia area I would highly recommend GAF roofing shingles because of the wind resistance and outstanding performance! Gaf roofing shingles are top of the line just about every roofer in the Portsmouth, Virginia agrees with this fact.
Now also I have installed atlas roofing shingles, Tamko roofing shingles, CertainTeed roofing shingles, Owens corning roofing shingles, and many other oddball brands. Consumer reports and a few others all say the CertainTeed Shingles are the best! It has the strongest fiberglass mat which helps make it tear-proof. However, when it is hot they scar awful bad and very easily. I had a big loss from this once in Portsmouth, VA. I had to replace almost half the roof because of scar marks on the roofing shingles. You could not see them from the ground and for the most part, scaring the shingles in the summertime is normal to a certain degree. CertainTeed roofing shingles scar very bad, way worse than GAF roofing shingles in the heat. GAF shingles are easy to match if you need to repair them. I also love the Cobra ridge vent system offered by GAF.
At Aquashield Roofing we can install GAF Timberline Architectural Shingles on your residential home or commercial office building. Our roofers are the all-stars of roofing and our roofing company installs GAF roofing shingles every week. Contact us for advice on roofing repairs or new shingles roof replacements.
On almost all flat or low sloped roof structures we only install the best most durable TPO roofing membrane such as Versico TPO or Firestone TPO fully adhered roofing membranes. TPO is an environmentally friendly long-lasting commercial roofing system. TPO is 90% recyclable and has an energy star rating because of its strong reflectivity.
EPDM rubber roofing is another great roofing membrane that could be closer to your budget. EPDM Rubber roofing is a single-ply roofing material that's easy to install and its cheaper than installing TPO roofing membrane or PVC roofing membrane. If it is installed properly it will stay impervious to water or moisture. Many times, most EPDM rubber roofs fail because of poor installation standers. At Aquashield Roofing our roofers are trained to install roofs the right way and they have completed multiple projects in the Portsmouth, Virginia area.
