The best roofing company in Pittsburgh PA, Evans Roofing and Gutters, were recently contacted by a local homeowner in need of roof repairs on their flat roof. His flat rubber roof was suffering from repeated roof leaks, and he wasn’t sure what kind of repairs would be best. The homeowner had worked with us before, so he knew that the Evans roofing crew could handle whatever was going wrong with his low slope roof.
In general, rubber roofing membranes like EPDM roofing materials are great for low slope roofs, but they can suffer from storm damage and leaks can eventually form. We understand this, and we have developed repair techniques for flat roofs. An inspector got out to the property right way, and determined that the roof was structurally sound and a good candidate for flat roof repairs. After working with the homeowner, we decided that a this roof was a great candidate for a silicone roof coating.
Silicone roof coatings are applied in liquid form over a flat roof, and they flow into all the nooks and crannies to seal over any places where leaks could form. This extends the life of the roof while also providing waterproofing and a white coating that reflects sunlight and increases energy efficiency. Our new Pittsburgh PA customer was so happy with his leak free flat roof that he has contracted us for more of his projects after this.

A Pittsburgh business owner had been suffering from leaks in their flat roof on their main building and also their porch roof. Water was getting into their commercial building and interrupting their business, so they Googled “the best commercial roofing company in Pittsburgh.” Evans Roofing and Gutters was their first result! They gave us a call, and we were happy to perform a roof inspection to get to the root of the problem.
After consulting with the property owner, we decided to upgrade their flat roofing material to state of the art rubberized plastic roof membranes called EPDM roofing. The existing roof was in bad condition, and there was a lot of rotted wood on the porch roof. We first removed this damaged wood and even reframed their porch before installing new insulation and roof decking on both the porch and the main roof. Finally, we installed new a EPDM rubber roof system with strong adhesives, as well as a new EPDM flashing system to all pipes, curbs, and parapets so that the whole roof was protected from leaks.
Our new Pittsburgh client was pleased with the work and the timely manner of our work. Now she can run her business without worrying about water leaks! If you want this peace of mind, call Evans Roofing and Gutters today!
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.
Flat roof systems, long used on commercial buildings, are growing in popularity with residential homes, and a homeowner with a flat roof in Mt Lebanon PA was faced with a dilemma. Their flat roof and box style gutters were leaking and needed roof repairs. But who could they call? After Googling “roofing company for flat roofs in Mt Lebanon PA,” Evans Roofing and Gutters Inc became their choice. With our decades of experience with both roofing repair and gutter installation, we were uniquely positioned to help.
After a thorough flat roof inspection and a consultation with our new client, we recommended using a liquid flat roof membrane to fix their flat roof leaks. Our experienced roofers got right to work applying a state of the art GACO silicone rubber roof system over the entire roof area and the box gutters. This silicone roof system fixed the problem areas by sealing the roof while also being a lot more cost effective than entirely replacing the flat roof with a new EPDM roof system.
Silicone roof systems have lots of advantages for flat roofs. Not only are they able to flow over the entire roof surface and seal over every little crack or imperfection for a seamless waterproof layer, but the white color reflects sunlight and reduces energy costs. Our new client was loved how quickly we were able to get the roof and gutters fixed.

In the greater Pittsburgh area, Evans Roofing and Gutters are the trusted roofing company for all kinds of clients from private homeowners to commercial property owners. Recently we were contacted a Shadyside PA property management company about the roof on one of their apartment buildings. They use us for all their roofing projects because they trust that we’ll install a new roof with the best roofing materials in the quickest amount of time, as well as within their budget!
The flat roof on this apartment building was leaking, and so we installed a new silicone rubber roof system. A rubber roof coating system involves applying a single layer of specialized silicone roofing over the existing roof substrate, which are commonly BUR or other roofing membranes. Rubber roofing is recommended for flat roofs because it can completely seal every inch, while also providing extra insulation and solar protection, keeping energy costs low for the tenants.
To install this rubber roofing, our professional roofers first pressure washed the flat roof of any debris, used silicone seam tape to seal all seams and drains, and then applied the rubber roof coating to the entire area. Our professional roofing contractors were also able to finish before the deadline and under budget.
Our Shadyside PA property manager was overjoyed with the new roof, not only the way it looks but also how it stopped those roof leaks! They knew that the professionals at Evans Roofing and Gutters would install the best flat roof rubber roofing system that will last for years.
