Roofing may seem simple and in truth it should be.

One problem that we constantly run into is that manufacturers are always trying to tweak their membrane products to produce the ultimate black magic membrane solution. Unfortunately, it seems that much of the promised magic is more promise than magic.

The solution is to assure that a proper detailed design considers all aspects of the requirements for the building. Equally important is the requirement for close site supervision and quality control during a replacement.

Of course, many owners want to maximize the life of their existing roof. The best way to do this is to have periodic inspections to address any weaknesses in the roof before they cause damage. With a reliable review of the roof, minor repairs can be done in the dry summer months to avoid more costly "emergency" repairs (and damage) in the winter.
