Commercial Roof Inspection in Gatlinburg, TN.


This commercial roof has a lot of problems with roof leaks.  There is a membrane roof that is holding water because of roof leaks.  There are shingle portions of this roofing system with multiple layers of shingles and various locations that can cause the roof to leak.  Also, there is quite a bit of a trim of flashing metal that is either missing or worn out.

This roof proposal includes replacing the shingles, replacing the membrane roof, replacing the gutters, and replacing all of the missing trim metal.

    water trapped between membrane and roof

     Water trapped under the black EPDM.  This is a water ripple caused by stepping down in the water logged area. *

    Massive amounts of water build-up under the membrane. There are water areas up to 5 inches deep underneath the EPDM membrane. It is trapped between the membrane and the old roof. This can cause long-term mold problems, and rust of the metal roof and metal rafter supports, causing possible catastrophic roof failure. Among other issues as well.
