Key Features of Flat Roofing
Flat roofing is a popular style of roofing in both commercial and residential properties. Most commonly found in large, multistory buildings, flat roofing is one of the most inexpensive types of roofing available. Another benefit is ease of access, meaning you can use your roof for things like gardens and solar panels.
Flat Roofing Installation
Flat roofing comes in various styles, each of which affects installation. Regardless of which style you opt for, it will have to be covered with a waterproof membrane. The roofing experts at ACA will handle the entire process, including stripping old roofing, installing the new one, and adding the waterproof membrane.
Flat Roof Repair Chicago
A common issue with a Chicago flat roof is its tendency to suffer damage or flooding. Flat roofing can easily trap water, which can lead to leaking, damage to the roofing surface, or even compromised structural integrity. It’s also important to stay on top of any repairs your flat roof might need, since these problems can escalate quickly. The first step in repair is to identify the source of the issue. Once the leak has been identified, we can proceed to repairs. Most flat roofing issues are not DIY tasks, so make sure you contact properly-equipped professionals for any kind of flat roof repair in Chicago.
Flat Roofing Replacement and Re-roofing
In some cases, flat roofing can become so damaged that an entire replacement becomes necessary. If that’s the case, we’ll need to entirely strip your current roofing and re-install the entire flat roof. Since this is a large, complex task, you’ll want to make sure you contact the flat roof specialist team at ACA.
