Roof Leak Enders offers a variety of roofing services including:
A new commercial roof installation means our installers will remove your old roof in its entirety and install a new commercial roof. Or, if your building is a new construction, we can plan and install your new roof.
The two major types of commercial roofs that we install are modified bitumen roofs (which is a combination of rubber asphalt/tar blended and comes in granular and smooth surfaces) also known as SBS. The second type of roof we install is an EPDM (Ethylene Propylene Diene Terpolymer) roofing which is a durable synthetic rubber roofing (known simply as Rubber Roofing).
If you have detected or suspect a leak in your roof, we offer commercial roof repairs for your building. Typically, this process follows these steps:
If our team discovers your roof is beyond repair, we will recommend a new roof installation.
Roof flashing is a thin material that is used to direct water away from critical areas of the roof such as where the roof plane meets a vertical surface. Flashing is commonly installed around vents, chimneys, and skylights.
Flashing repair involves patching or plugging pinholes with a patch made from the same material as the flashing to prevent leaks.
Flat roofs often must be seal coated to prevent further damage. This is an important component of flat roof maintenance. Customers have a few options when it comes to roof coatings in New York:
Option 1: One option is Silver Coating. Silver Coating extends the life of your roof because it reflects sunlight and deters future damage from UV rays. However, this option does not waterproof the roof.
Option 2: A second attractive roof coating option is to have a GACO roof installed. GACO roofs are very popular on Long Island and in the New York area.
A GACO roof is essentially a new roof without needing to remove the old roofing off first—A GACO roof means you are installing a new roof over the existing roof. GACO is a silicone-based roof coating that helps with energy efficiency, waterproofing, and meets all building requirements. It is one of the best options for commercial roof repair because it is long lasting. In fact, GACO offers a 50-year product warranty. The standard color for a GACO roof is white, however it does come in different colors and gives you a beautiful seamless roof.
Because they are seamless, they have less chance of developing leaks in the future, which makes them very desirable. A GACO roof can only be installed over an existing roof. As such, they cannot act as a new roof for a commercial building. To qualify for a GACO roof, a representative will come to your business to test your roof and take samples. No more than 20-30% of the roof can have water damage underneath it, and the roof must be within the manufacturer’s specs for moisture. If there are too many areas with moisture that must be cut out, your food may not be a good candidate for a GACO roof. For example, if you have a 40 square foot roof and 10-15 sq. ft of that roof needs patching, it may be more cost effective to install a new replacement roof instead. When our roofing experts conduct their roof inspection, we will assess the situation, provide you with your options and give you everything you need to make the right decision.
The Roof Leak Enders process for a GACO roof installation in New York is as follows:
Options 3 & 4: Other roof coating options include elastic metric roof coatings which is a waterproof rubberized coating and Liquid EPDM which is similar to a Firestone rubber roof. Liquid EDPM does require a primer coating first and is done in stages.
If you are the builder or property manager for a residential community such as a condominium or co-op complex, or if you operate a manufacturing, distribution, or industrial building, for example, hiring a roof inspector to come out and evaluate your building can alert you to potential issues before they become a major, costly problem you will have to deal with.
