Roof Restoration
Flat Roof · Terraces · Decks · Balconies · Gutters · Canopies          
Roof Restoration is the process of using highly-engineered products to "restore" an existing roof to a like-new condition. It is used on PVC, TPO, EPDM, Modified Bitumen and some other roof systems.  A Roof Restoration System can be very beneficial for you and your roof. 

Roof Repair and Roof Restoration  
When you need a new roof, you typically have two options.  Option 1 is Roof Restoration: simply cover up the existing roof with a new roof.  Option 2 is to Re-Roof: tear off the existing roof(s) and then install a new roof.  As you might well imagine, Option 2, the tear-off option, is significantly more expensive than Option 1, which does not require a tear-off. 

Generally speaking, if there are already two or more existing roofing systems installed, local codes typically require that, prior to installation of a new roofing system, all of the previous roofing systems must be removed down to the substrate.  This is a messy, noisy, and very expensive process.

A roof that typically would require a tear-off, but is in otherwise 'restorable' condition, might benefit from restoration.  This would mean no tear-off!  No tear-off would mean virtually no mess, a lot less noise, and it could save you money. It is also important to realize that by using a quality Membrane System, you can receive warranty terms of anywhere between 5, 10, 15, 20 and 25 years.  So not only do you get a like-new roof at a fraction of the cost of a tear-off and re-roof, you can get a quality warranty to further protect that investment.  Are you seeing the benefits yet? 
Another huge benefit is that some quality roof restoration systems are forever sustainable!  At the end of each warranty term, you can clean and reapply a new topcoat and get a brand new warranty with a brand new extended warranty term.  It's like getting another new roof for far less money than what even a new restoration system would cost. All the prep work required for the original restoration system would not be required at this point.  This approach would preclude the need for a tear-off forever! It's good for the environment and certainly good for your roof and pocket. 

In addition to the product itself, what is also important is the contractor used to install the roof restoration system.  Any product, no matter how good it is, requires a proper adhesion test to verify compatibility with the existing roof.  Failing to do this simple but important procedure can mean the difference between product success or failure.  In fact, restorative roof manufacturers require an adhesion test as part of their warranty requirements. 

Roof Restoration is a viable solution. If you are in the market for a new roof, a roof restoration system is an option that should be considered.  A rooftop evaluation, adhesion test and a roof that is in restorable condition will afford you many benefits i.e. reduced cost, less mess and noise as well as environmental benefits.
So make sure you are getting the best information.  Make an informed decision and give us a call to schedule your free rooftop inspection and evaluation.

A good roof is certainly the most important part of any home, as it protects you and your family from the harshness of Mother Nature. When your roof begins to show signs of wear, it is vital that it be repaired or replaced entirely, so that you can keep your family safe and ensure the value of your home. 


Do I even need to re-roof? 

Of course, you’re probably not an expert on flat roofs. But if your roof is in really bad shape, it’s likely that you will be able to tell.          
Common signs of a roof in bad shape:

- Do you see serious signs of aging: deterioration, crumbling? 
- Do you see any ponding water (puddles) after a rain? 
- Do you see any loose or falling off laps on the membrane? 
- Do you see water stains inside your house?    
If you’ve seen any of the signs above, it’s probably not safe to walk around up there, and it might be time for a re-roofing.


When re-roofing, selection of a roof that meets the stylistic and practical needs of your home is very important. Talk to an expert about initial cost, energy efficiency, and durability.
