So, um, what are we talking about when we talk about different types of roofing systems?
Well, there’s, there’s a taper system, um, that can be installed on a current, on your current roofing system or on a new construction, new construction. It’s generally built with a tapered polios Pollio so board to create higher levels on a roofing system. And this is a way to manage the water flow and, and fix ponding issues. Ponding ponding is where there’s puddles or where water builds up or where water collects after a rain and it doesn’t drain properly. So, um, the national roofing contractors association sets many codes and standards, um, and for slopes. And they have a slope minimum of one eighth inch drop per one inch slope. You know, that means that eight lineal feet of roof slow would have a drop of one inch. As you can see, there’s not much slope. So we like to actually do a, a larger slope than that, um, to prevent ponding.
But you know, if you have something like that and your roofing, decking substrate or your building structure, um, it can begin to deteriorate rate over time. If there’s imperfections in your sloping and it can cause your roof membrane to, um, to have, uh, the normal wear and tear can increase and it can cause some real problems and cause your roof to deteriorate. And we’ve repaired many of these areas with great success. Roof coatings can be done or we can, um, you know, we can fix it with a tapered roofing system so we can extend the life of your roof by re re restoring your roof or replacing with a better tapered roof system that will eliminate ponding and those problems with your commercial roofing, broken arrow. So what do you do if you have an emergency call? Well, you know, if you have ponding, if you have problems, you know, eventually you will have an emergency if you have ponding because it is deteriorating your roof more quickly than it should and you will eventually probably get some leak problems.
So if you have that problem, um, give us a call at (918) 973-1010. We do offer 24 hour emergency repair service. We answer our calls, we answer our, our clients phone calls because we are here for you if there’s a problem. Um, typically, um, a larger roof repair may take one to three days, but a smaller roof can be done in, in 24 hours and you know, they can take, it can just take a few hours of time. So it may surprise you that, um, leak detection is, you know, it’s, uh, it’s, it’s takes a scientist, a roof scientists to really be able to find that, um, a leak problem and where it comes from. And that’s because these systems are complicated on your commercial roofing, broken Arrow, and you might see that the leak is coming in in one area of your roof from the inside. Um, but it could be, you know, we’ve seen them 20 feet away where the leaking problem up above on, on the commercial roof up above, it’s actually maybe 20 feet away and it might like run down a pipe and then leak in another spot on the inside of the roof.
So it can be complicated. That’s why you need an expert in the field of commercial roofing, broken Arrow to come out and, and, uh, look at your roof because it’s not rocket science. It’s real science. It really does take a roof scientists, an expert, a roof nerd, an expert in the field to really come in and, and do a, a great, um, evaluation on your roof and find where that leak is happening. This can be the most difficult part of a roof repair. Um, about 8% of roof repairs have an obvious leaking area that’s extremely easy to diagnose, but that other 20%, that’s, those are the ones where you really need an expert to come in and find the actual leaking spot. And that can be difficult. We’ve seen it happen actually through a, um, you know, maybe even through HVHC where that’s connected in it and it could be coming in through there.
So it’s not actually coming in through the, through the roofing air part. It can be where a pipe goes in. There could be just a minimal pinhole can cause a leak within your commercial roofing, broken arrow. So give us a call with the roof nerds. They can walk you through it.
