At Preventive Maintenance Support Services, we provide flat roof repair throughout the Boca Raton and surrounding area. Flat roof repairs can be a little complicated, especially if rotten wood needs to be replace. A repair will take a three man crew a full day.
Hot Asphalt Repairs
Flat roofs are generally made with asphalt. Many contractor push cold process or torch repairs. We believe there is no better repair than a conventional hot asphalt repair. Its our experience that anything other than good old fashion hot repair falls short.
As with all repairs the damaged roofing materials need to be completely removed and all rotten wood replaced. Our crews are trained to take off as much old roof as needed until they no longer see rotten or water stained wood. New roofing materials are then applied in layers. Each layer is placed in hot asphalt. Finally, the perimeter edge of the repair is coated with hot asphalt.
We guarantee that our flat roof repair will stop your leak on the first visit and increase the life expectancy of the roofing system
Single-ply Roof Repairs
If you have a TPO or PVC white reflective roof there are a few techniques we use to ensure a long lasting repair.
1. Identify the plastic modifier in your roofing system. Single ply materials are no compatible. Using TPO on PVC might work initially, but eventually will the patch will eventually fail.
2. Single ply roofs are fantastic but the too weather over time. Each year a tiny layer of the material is weathered away and over time, the surface becomes difficult to weld a patch. to. But the underside is comparatively virgin. So we sometimes weld our single-ply patched to the underside of your roofing system

Common Problems with Flat Roofs
Ponding on flat roofs
This occurs from a dip in the roof, which may have developed at the time of installation. Ponding can also occur from a fixture on the roof, such as an air conditioning unit. Ponding creates extra weight on your roof, and the water will look for every way possible to seep into your home or commercial building, including the tiniest of cracks on your roof.
The first step in fixing a ponding problem is determining the source. Our trained professionals can spot the source quickly and determine the best course of action for repair.
Punctures in the roofing membrane
Some owners believe that because their roof is not sloped, it’s safe to walk or even store equipment on. This is not the case. Every step you take on your flat roof is a possible puncture, and every puncture is a potential crack that can lead to leaking. If you would like the ability to walk on your roof, consider installing additional support, such as a roof walkway pads. A good roofing contractor should recommend these

If so, contact us during or after the installation process so that we can assess any damage that may have been done to the roof before it becomes a major issue!

Blisters in the field of the roof
A range of factors can contribute to roof blistering. Our roofers will determine the source of blistering and address the problem before it leads to cracking and leaking. Be careful who you allow to inspect roofs with blister. Some unscrupulous contracts will step trying to make new work.
Cracking, also referred to as splits in the roof
If you notice a crack on your roof that is spreading, contact us immediately. Cracks are the main cause of leaks, which can rot your rafters. It doesn’t take long for a crack to become a leak. Since water has a tendency to run, a crack that is in one location may not appear as a leak for several feet.
