Most flat roofs are found on commercial buildings and were probably installed by professional commercial roofers with flat roofing experience; however, you will find some residences with this type of installation.  Unfortunately, most of these installs were done by contractors with little or no experience dealing with this type of roofing and end up requiring repair long before reaching the minimum life Commercial Flat Roof Repair - Resources and Materials Towaco NJ 07082 expectancy of the materials.

Materials

Most of the leaks requiring repairs are those installed with a single ply rubber membrane called EPDM (ethylene propylene diene terpolymer).  This type of roofing material has replaced the earlier style of flat roofing which was made up of a base sheet and multiple layers of felt paper and hot asphalt or coal tar.  Usually this was covered with Towaco NJ 07082 gravel to give it increased life.  This type of flat roofing is called BUR (built up roofing).   In most cases this type of roofing although using less high tech materials out lasts the EPDM roofing in residential applications due to the inconsistency in installation procedures.

Do It Yourself Flat Roof Repair

If you have an EPDM membrane and it looks like it can be repaired you are still faced with a number of Towaco NJ 07082 choices.  There is a black rubber glue or a Peel-and-stick flashing material with a rubber primer that covers the seams of the membrane which is where most leaks occur.
