The Original Roofing Company installs low-slope systems from manufacturers such as John Mansville and GAF. Low-slope systems, unlike steep sloped roofs, can be flat or nearly flat with minimal pitch to allow run off. These systems are primarily unstalled on commercial projects but they are often used on residential projects as well. Low-slope systems come in single-ply and built-Up forms.
These systems vary in both the materials and adhering methods used as well as in cost for both installation and maintenance. Low-slope systems can be sensitive to heavy foot traffic. Examples such as replacing or repairing HVAC units, vents or other structures can produce cracks or punctures in the surface which can lead to leaks if not re-sealed promptly and properly. While we can repair these unforeseen issues we can also provide methods to protect the roofing membrane by building a wooden deck over the surface or using walking pads. Low-slope systems are generally applied continuously where possible, though sealants and adhesives are available to allow for bonding multiple sheets and dealing with vents and other structures penetrating the roof surface.
