There are three main types of repairs that can be performed on roofing systems. Repairs are designed to accomplish one or more of the three goals listed below.
Emergency Roof Repairs
Emergency / responsive roof repairs are in direct response to a leak and are meant to relieve an immediate problem. This could include targeted patchwork in the field or flashing membranes, repairs at holes or splits, or storm damage.
Temporary Roof Repairs
Temporary repairs are designed to extend the life of the roof for a relatively short period of time while a more comprehensive roof management program can be developed. Repairing wind scouring or other surfacing loss, re-sealing gas pipes or electrical conduit feeds for HVAC equipment, or repairs to damaged or missing sheet metal are some typical examples of temporary repairs.
Preemptive Maintenance / Permanent Repairs
These types of repairs are intended to extend the remaining life of the roof - a Solution One Roof Maintenance Program is designed exactly for this purpose. With scheduled cleanings and inspections, a variety of roof maintenance products, coatings and techniques can be used to allow the existing roofing system to achieve its maximum expected service life. Replacing flashings at roof drains and other critical roof penetrations, adding saddles or auxiliary roof drains to alleviate "ponding" water, removing abandoned rooftop equipment or applying a new surface coating are examples of preemptive roof repairs that will provide years of effective additional service life at a fraction of the cost of a new roof.
