Since pitched roofs with shingles or roofing panels are more common on residential homes, Pennsylvania homeowners with flat roofs might not know what to do or who to call when they have a leaking flat roof. A Pittsburgh PA homeowner had this problem, and they were smart enough to call trusted local roofers, Evans Roofing and Gutters Inc. Flat rubber roofing is one of our specialties, so we were happy to take on the challenge of this job.
The house is a rowhouse, which means it’s connected to the other houses on either side. This allowed water to run from their roofs onto this roof, which didn’t have proper drainage. Without the right drainage system, water will pool on the surface and slowly deteriorate the roofing until leaks form. This is exactly what had happened to our Pittsburgh PA row house owner.
Experienced with flat rubber roofing on commercial properties, the Evans Roofing and Gutters crew had access to the right flat roofing materials and processes to get this row house roof sealed up and protected from the elements. To accomplish this, we first installed a brand new drainage system that targeted the areas where water was coming in. Finally, we covered the roof in a silicone roofing system. A silicone roofing system has lots of benefits for a flat roof, including providing complete waterproofing, even over drainage systems, as well as reflecting sunlight for a more energy efficient home.
Our Pittsburgh homeowner loved their new, waterproof flat roof, and he was especially pleased with how well our team communicated with him and how quickly we did the work.
