Conklin Commercial Roofing

A roof that is nearly flat or slightly pitched is what is known as a flat roof or a low slope roof.  Fun Fact:  No roof should be dead flat, because it must have at least a slight slope to drain water off of the roof.  Flat & Low Slope tend to use a continuous membrane covering which will help keep water from pooling on the roof.  The water needs to flow in a particular direction, so that water is running off the roof into a gutter.

I’m glad you have decided to check out this blog post.  So you are either interested in learning about Flat & Low Slope, so  keep reading, or you are a commercial roofer and you want to know more. I will try to keep this informative, and interesting.  So let’s learn something new.

Back in the day, low-slope or flat roofs would use a build up (tar & gravel) roof.  Not today, because this traditional type of roof doesn’t perform as well, and the cost plus environmental concerns with this type of roofing, just isn’t feasible.  Bunkum Valley Roofing can offer a better solution.

The first step you are going to do is clean roof with phosphoric acid, then we will Power wash and clean your roof with the Conklin Roof cleaner.  Since this is considered a flat roof/low slope you need to make sure that the roof is good and dry before going onto the next step,

We will then treat your commercial roof with a sealer primer, then the installation of the membrane layer will be put down, making sure that your seams overlap.  The seams will then be welded together together to form an exceptionally durable, water proof, and energy efficient shield that will deliver unsurpassed protection for years to come.  We will also make sure that all of joins and opening are welded.
