A flat roof repair is tricky. Why? Because by the time a repair is needed it may already be saturated with water. It then becomes a band-aid cure that traps the water so it can fester and rot your entire roof.
Many contractors will happily fix the leak spot so no more water will continue leaking under the roof – but the water already trapped under the roof will stay there, for years.
Sounds like a real nightmare, yes?
Well, it IS a nightmare, and YES this article was purposely written to scare you. If you want to hear a pretty story about how easy it is to fix a leak in a flat roof, then go to Mother Goose or Disney. If you prefer the real deal, the REAL story, the real SOLUTION then this is the right place for you.
No sales pitch. No sugar coating. No lies.
Flat roof repairs REALLY are tricky. Mostly because unlike a sloped roof, the water or snow has a hard time rolling off and away. This compounds the degree of damage if a leak is present because ALL the water sits for long periods of time. Therefore, by the time the leak is detected, serious water damage has occurred. Patching the leak to stop the leak only makes it worse.
If you have a bottle of water and you want the water to evaporate, the last thing you would you is put a cap on the bottle. Obviously the water would take forever to dry out or evaporate.
So what’s next?
How do we truly DETECT and solve the leak and the damage in the most efficient, cost effective way so you won’t get nailed with a string of flat roof repairs that will never solve the problem at its core?
Infrared Leak Detection
This technology pin-points water damage and leaks that can’t be seen by the naked eye.
This scanner is a miracle of flat roof repair. It scans and detects every area where water is present, even through steel and wood and concrete. Before this scanner was invented, it was required to drill holes in the roof to physically “see” where the trapped moisture was hiding (more holes and potential leaks).
Now it is very easy to SCAN the water damaged areas – and know EXACTLY where the water is trapped and where the water was originally leaking.
You now have a choice: You can hire the REAL deal or hire a flat roof repair company that uses guess work instead of proven effective repair technology.
