Re-roof, recovery, and restoration systems are appropriate for roofs that can no longer be repaired through regular maintenance, are showing signs of serious deterioration, or are regularly leaking.
Re-roofing a flat roof, or the full-elimination of the existing roof system, involves removal of the roof surface, roof membrane, and roofing insulation from the roof deck substrate.
Roof Recovering of a flat roof entails roofers covering an existing roof system with a new roof membrane. This process requires inspection of the existing roof membrane / substrate and verification of weight requirements prior to the new roof membrane being installed.
Restoring a flat roof involves installing liquid applied reinforced membranes to the existing roofing system. Certain conditions must exist for a roof to qualify to be restored. Conditions such as attachment, surfacing, and age are all taken in consideration before a retro-fit is recommended.
