Your Flat/Low-Slope Roofing Professionals
Homeowners that have flat and low-slope roofs have unique challenges when it comes to their roofing systems. Not only do these roofs shed water differently than traditional roofing systems, they need to do their job properly to prevent standing water, leaks and structural damage such as sagging.
Fortunately, the roofing professionals at Hershey Exteriors, Inc have the experience to handle your flat/low-slope roofing needs. We work with industry-leading materials from GAF to bring you the best in performance, warranties and customer satisfaction.
Common Issues With Flat & Low-Slope Roofs
Although your flat or low-slope roof still protects your home from the elements, proper installation is essential to prevent problems later on. While all roofing systems will eventually need to be replaced, our team can extend the lifespan of your flat/low-slope roofing system. We’re familiar with all the common issues that these roofing systems can experience, including:
- Punctures. If you use a single-ply membrane for your flat roof, such as TPO or EPDM, punctures can result from a poorly installed roof or a material that has surpassed its lifespan.
- Debris. Since these roofs don’t shed water and debris like traditional roofing systems, it’s easier for debris to build up on a flat or low-sloped roof, which can hinder proper water drainage.
- Bubbling. Flat and low-sloped roofs with damage from heat (particularly single-ply membranes) can experience bubbling, which can eventually lead to interior leaks if not addressed.
- Pooling water. There are many reasons water may pool on your flat roof. It should be evaluated by a roofing professional to determine the core issue.
Hershey Exteriors, Inc can install, repair and maintain your flat or low-slope roof to help it last as long as possible with the right materials and expert installation.
