Schaumburg Commercial Flat Roof RecoveryJanuary 20, 2020
Commercial roofs offer their own set of challenges that Smart Roofing Inc. is always ready to face. This flat roof recovery in Schaumburg was particularly interesting because of the coordination required between the crane team and the roof team. Since we recovered the roof with loosely laid Carlisle EPDM membrane, we needed river rock to ballast the membrane and prevent it from blowing off. To get gravel to the roof required a crane with a hopper, and some great teamwork.
Before we could even install the flat roof membrane, we had to make sure that the existing roof was ready to be recovered. We needed to vacuum up the existing gravel ballast, install recovery insulation to provide a flat surface, and only then did we lay the membrane down. Once the membrane was installed and all seams were sealed, we proceeded to load the river rock ballast with a team to direct the crane and a team to spread the ballast. Safety is always a priority with roofing, so safety lines and hard hats were a must! Smart Roofing Inc.’s sheet metal crew also made custom sizes of gravel stops and fascia to tie the whole roof together, making sure the perimeter of the roof is water tight and secure. Since the building is being remodeled into offices, the owner also requested that the skylights be replaced, which our team did without any issues. Commercial flat roofs are one of our many specialties, and this commercial flat roof recovery in Schaumburg, along with skylight replacement was a fun way to end the year.
