This commercial roof is only three or four years old. The inspection reveals that there are quite a few problems with this commercial roof.

1. Recurring Leaks

2. Ponding Water at drains

These problems can turn into big issues if not addressed.

Painting and Coating this Roof

  1. 1
    Possibly Painting this Elevator Building

    We have been asked to possibly paint this elevator building on top of this roof. We would recommend an elastomeric paint because of the Masonary.

    Possibly coating this roof

    This Roof has had a number of leaks Since it was installed. The owners of this building are wanting to consider a permanent solution. This might be a good route to consider putting an Aldo silicone coding system on.

    Cutting the scupper drains to flow better

    It is very disappointing to have ponding water on the back of this roof.  Because the roof has such a beautiful slope and fall from the front to the back. It’s very unfortunate that the back of the roof ponds water at the drains.

    With that said the recommendation on how to resolve this standing water is to open the drain up at the bottom this will require cutting through the wall with the lower channel so that the water can pass easier instead of ponding on this commercial roof.

    Cutting the drains lower

    In order to cut these drains lower we will need to break the brick on the outside of the wall so that we can make a drain that is lower here’s a picture of the outside wall as the drain goes into a gutter box.

Commercial Drip Edge Should Have Been Used Here

  1. 1
    Termination Bar Mis-Installed

    This T-bar should’ve never been installed on the flat of a roof because water can go in at the screws holding the T-bar on and caused the roof to rot and leak. A commercial drip edge needs to be installed here instead.

    This is what commercial drip edge would look like on the edge of this roof.
