How to Ensure Your Flat Roof is Water Proof

If your commercial roof isn’t water proof, and is exposed to harsh conditions like sun, rain, wind and snow, you will undoubtedly need to repair often and replace sooner.

Benefits of Using a Flat Roofing Specialty Company

Water doesn’t wash off a flat roof like it does on sloped roofs. Instead, they are built like large swimming pools with a drainage system to carry water to the ground. For this reason, flat roofs need to be entirely sealed. Even the smallest exposed crack, can let water into your building, causing lasting damage.

Jaco Roofing & Construction, Inc., your premier flat roofing company in Houston, is extremely careful applying a protectant layer of Duro-Last to all flat roof installs. Duro-Last is a more sustainable option and is meant to exceed requirements not only for energy efficiency but also for endurance.

Prefabricated roofing systems-like Duro-Last- are easier to install any time of the year. As they usually take less time to install,  a flat roof will be exposed to bad weather conditions for a much shorter amount of time. At the same time, the seaming is sealed with hot-air welding, so you can be sure they are water tight, no matter the conditions.

Here are a few top reasons to use Duro-Last on your flat roof:

  • Fire-Resistance. Duro-Last is resistant to chemicals and fire, preventing lasting damage to your facility.
  • Prevent Mold. Sealing your roof with Duro-Last provides low permeability, meaning it will dry more quickly and prevent mold/fungus growth.
  • Heat Reduction. The prefabricated systems that Jaco Roofing & Construction, Inc. utilizes are highly reflective. When paired with the Duro-Last Cool Zone, it can reduce your building’s energy consumption by up to 40 percent!
  • Environmentally Friendly. The prefabricated systems are custom made, reducing waste during manufacturing and installation.
