The Greater Bethel Apostolic Church had an existing EPM rubber roof. This roofing material was black, which meant it absorbed a lot of sun and excess heat, especially during the summer. The church was having issues keeping their air conditioning running efficiently, and they also experienced leaks at seam failures and loose rubber in sections of the roof.
WM Roofing first cleaned the roof and installed new rubber. Next, a membrane restoration system was installed. This membrane restoration reinforced all of the seams on the roof and made them watertight, so there won’t be any leaking issues in the future. Finally, a white top coat was installed over the top, which helps to keep the surface at a cooler temperature during the summer, meaning the building will be able to cool itself much more efficiently.
Over time, flat roofing systems can start to perform poorly. The YMCA of Western Stark County had an existing spray polyurethane foam roof system that had been in place for about 26 years, and was beginning to show signs of age. It was starting to leak in some places and had some ponding water in areas that needed to be addressed. READ
To fix the issues on this roof, WM Commercial Roofing went in and first cleaned the existing roof, then removed damaged sections. Then a new fabric reinforced roofing system was installed and low areas were built up to prevent ponding water in the future. The new roof was waterproof and brought back the old reflectivity, giving it an 85% reflectivity value, which helps lower energy costs in the future.
