There are 3 major problems with roofs like these and I want to show you how to fix them for good.
Problem #1 – Flat roofs are made from hundreds of individual pieces: See the seams that run along the roof in the photo? It’s like a big jigsaw puzzle on top of your roof. The lines on flat roofs represent seams. This is where two pieces have been glued together. Together, you have hundreds of points of failure where water can seep in and cause a leak. Plus, you have screws under the roof membrane that create more points of failure. In the end, it’s not a matter of “if” but “when” you get a leak. Which brings us to…
Problem #2 – Ponding water: After a few days of rain, you can end up with serious water build up on your roof. (Can you see it in the photo?) That water has only two places to go. A. It evaporates. B. It breaks down the seams in the roof membrane and seeps into your building. Sadly, if the water sits there for more than 48 hours, it starts to decay your roof. Problem
#3 – UV degradation: In the picture above, you’ll see discoloration to the roof. That’s because UV rays have eaten away at the top layer of the roof. The end result is that you end up with a membrane that’s not watertight anymore. Together, these 3 reasons are why flat roofs need to be constantly repaired or replaced. Because the membrane can no longer withstand exposure to the elements. This usually happens after 10-15 years. And you have to rip the whole roof off and put a new one on. It’s frustrating and incredibly costly. Sometimes people attempt to save money by applying coatings. Bad idea. Roof coatings have to be redone all the time and don’t stand up well to the elements. Instead, you want to use a system to eliminate the need to ever repair or replace the roof again. And that’s what the EverSeal System does. The liquid applied system is guaranteed for 50 years.
EverSeal works so well because it solves the 3 main failure points. It creates a 100% watertight, seamless and flexible barrier from one end to the other. That means it won’t thin, crack or break down like a traditional roofing system. In other words, after 50 years, it will still be just as thick and watertight as the day we applied it. 🙂 Curious how much this roofing system will cost on your building?
