Repairing Commercial Rubber roofs

Commercial Rubber Roof – The same roofing materials apply to a Commercial roof as on a Residential roof. It is a myth that there is a higher standard for commercial roofing than that for a residential roof.

The same techniques and equipment are used to install flat roofs on commercial as well as residential flat roofs. The roof technicians’ experience determines the quality of the roof.

In this video, you will see how we prepared an existing roof on the house and then Torch Down a new rubber membrane over the existing roof.

Notice that preparing the flashing was the tricky part. Residential roofs are harder to do due to flashing and siding.

More costly to install a flat roof on a Residential building

It is much more difficult to install a flat roof on a residential roof than a commercial roof. There are far more obstacles, flashing, siding, and skylights to deal with in a very confined area. For this reason, it cost more per square foot to install.

In the video above you will see that the preparation of the flashing was the hardest and took much longer than installing the new rubber roof. Residential roofs are notorious for taking longer to prepare for a new roof. This is why most roofing companies fail to provide a roof that doesn’t leak. They never take the time to prepare the flashing.

The Best Rubber Roof available

Regardless if you install a Torch Down Rubber Roof over an existing Torch Down rubber roof or a Modified Bitumen Base sheet, this is by far the best roofing system. It is harder to install over an old Torch Down Roof because it takes longer to heat and melt the old rubber to fuse the new rubber membrane to it.
