EPDM Flat Roof Contractor near West Grove, PA 19390

Decades ago, flat roofs covered in EPDM rubber roofing were only found in commercial applications.   More recently there is a trend to use these products in the residential market where decks are installed on top of living space, or in the case of a decorative front porch with a flat top featuring a railing.  In this first video, we show you the wood repair from the damaged caused. It appears the original installer used a petroleum based sealant on the railing bolts, which prematurely ate the rubber and caused the leak.

In this second video, we show you the after photos, and talk a little more about the right kind of sealant for any penetrations that must be made in EPDM roofing.

If you have a Flat-roof and you are looking for a roofing contractor to diagnose some problems with it, or simply a roofer to replace the EPDM membrane, take some photos and give our team a call 484-748-7708. We look forward to serving you soon!
