Fort Collins Flat Roofing – Flat Roofs and Low Slope Roofing

slope-roofing-fort-collins

A roof that is almost flat and is often seen on commercial buildings is referred to as a low-slope roof, or simply a flat roof. A Flat Roof can also be found on residential buildings and homes as well.  A flat roof really is a misnomer though, as no roof should technically be “flat”. It may appear to be a flat roof from the ground, but each roof should have a built-in slope to account for water drainage. Since there are very few residential homes with this type of flat roof system, most roofers are not equipped to work on them. Our crews are fully knowledgeable and trained on the unique and technical challenges that a flat roof can present, so give Fort Collins Roofing Consultants a call.

Flat Roof Challenges

There are many technical challenges that can arise with a flat roofing system. These problems have to do with leak areas and the difficult process of finding them. A commercial roof should have absolutely no areas of standing water. If you have a flat roof and notice pockets of standing water or moisture, that most likely is a positive indication of a problem developing or worse.  This type of problem can usually be attributed to a weakened or sagging roof decking or possibly planning of drainage runoff could have been the culprit from the beginning.

Let our commercial sales representatives go through a free inspection and consultation with you and then be able to prepare a “plan of action” based on the  individual needs of your project. Our detailed plans for flat roof solutions begins by explaining all of the flat roof options that are available when it comes to flat roofing material choices and which types will be best suited for your construction or restoration needs. When it comes to flat roofing, commercial or residential, our goal is to supersede your expectations!

Property owners are often convinced that repairing a flat roofing system is not the best options. We at Fort Collins Roofing Consultants differ. We find that an effective repair done by a reputable company can save the owner money, time, and stress.

Most commercial flat roofing repairs take less than one business day to complete. When it comes to price, a repair is far cheaper than a replacement. Fort Collins Roofing Consultants prides themselves on professionalism and guarantees their work. We offer free flat roofing inspections and damage evaluations and our estimates are valid for 60 days! Sometimes there are defective materials found on a flat roofing system; this does not mean that a total replacement is needed. It just means that a repair will fix the problem.

To maintain the integrity of your roof it’s important that damaged shingles or flashing materials be fixed as soon as possible. This will prevent water penetration and eventual wood rot that could lead to structural damage within the roof and property.

Flat roofing materials often require extensive repairs or replacements. A common problem occurs when the seams lose their adhesive bond and the surface of the material becomes damaged because of the heat and age. This is what results in the “alligator skin” appearance.

As you will come to see during our initial consultative process, for effectively repairing low sloped and/or no sloped roofs or flat roofing systems, a quality roofing company will know the various solutions and can help you decide on the best solution that meets your needs and solves your current drainage problems. But the sad reality is that most folks won’t realize the value of a top quality like Fort Collins Roofing Consultants until they have a problem left behind by an unscrupulous contractor.  This is why it is so important to check companies out before hiring them to do any project.  Shop around and see what the competition is like. This way you are guaranteeing quality and professionalism.

Fort Collins Roofing Consultants – Flat Roof/Flat Roofing Experts!

Often times we are able to successfully repair a portion or the entire surface of a flat roof, however, moisture and structural evaluations must be done to ensure that a flat roofing system has not met the end of its useful life. Many times owners are convinced that their flat roof is un-repairable due to the lack of knowledge in today’s flat roofing restoration options for Low-Slope (flat roof) and Steep-Slope roofing. Fort Collins Roofing Consultants will provide free estimates and damage inspections by one of our in-house licensed insurance adjusters (flat roof or otherwise) and are valid for a period of sixty (60) days, unless otherwise noted.
