Replacing your old roof
The first step in the commercial roof replacement process is to remove the existing roof. The removal begins with tearing up the old torch down membrane, large areas of the roof can be scraped and peeled off and special attention is given to the routing features like drains vents and skylights. Underneath of the torch down, the membrane is a layer of foam board insulation and it is reusable if the existing material is in good condition and if there is any apparent damage the board is replaced.
Beneath the insulation is the roof deck and these sheets provide structural integrity with the entire roof. Again, if there is any water damage or rot, these boards will be removed and replaced. Around the perimeter of the roof is aluminium drip edge, this component serves to direct water away from the fascia and into the drains on the roof. The tear-off ends when the roof in areas surrounding the home is clean of debris this ensures the roof is prepped and ready for the installation process.
Installing your new roof
Now that the old roof is removed and replacement roof decking is installed. The crew works to fit and replace the foam board insulation. Once the foam board is fitted and secured sheets of waterproof granular underlayment are rolled out to cover the entire roof, the underlayment is used to wrap any exposed fixtures edges and roof protrusions to ensure water tightness. Custom drip edge is made for the entire roof perimeter, aluminium sheet metal is measured and formed into a gravel group. The trip edges are fit onto the roof edge and screwed into place over the underlayment layer.
The drip edge seals the roof edges protecting the fashion, water cannot penetrate into the wood or insulation and it also directs water away from the roof edges toward the roof drains Then, the roof is ready for its final layer. Rubber granulated torch down seals the roof wall from water and weather. The heat from propane torches melts the polymer modified asphalt and secures the layer down. The torch down is fit over corners, seams and edges to ensure a watertight seal across the whole roof. Last but not least the chimney has refitted flashing and sailed tight with a heavy bead of caulk. once all the nooks and crannies are covered, thoroughly sealed and all layers are in place the cleans the roof and removes any loose debris.
