Common Flat Roof Problems

Because of their (you guessed it) flat design, flat roofs have some common issues that often result in performance problems and a shorter lifespan. The complaint we hear most frequently is that our client’s flat roof is leaking. Leaks usually arise from stagnant water that puddles for more than two days after a downpour. Over time, the water penetrates the flashings and seams, but it might also leak through skylights, chimneys, parapets, drains, and other openings.

Another common problem with flat roofs is material shrinkage. When rubber contracts (usually due to temperature fluctuations), it can pull away from a drip edge, chimney, or parapet wall, allowing water to penetrate the underlying roofing structures or even the interior of the building.

Roof Inspection Des Moines, IA

Some people say roofs are like car tires; we only think about them when an issue arises, and we only repair or replace them when we have no other options. But think about it this way: If you take care of your car tires and inspect and repair them frequently, you can prolong their useful lives. Likewise, if you inspect and address your roof’s problems before they escalate, you will prolong its service life and save the money that would otherwise eventually go to (avoidably) installing a new roof.

Prolonging your roof’s life begins with regular inspections. In fact, the National Roofing Contractors Association recommends examining your roof twice a year: immediately after the hot season (fall) and immediately after the cold season (spring). That’s where Sadler Coating Systems comes in. As a full-service commercial roofing contractor in the Des Moines, IA, area, we have a team of professional and experienced roof inspectors who are qualified evaluate your roof, report back, and suggest the most effective solutions.  Give us a call at 515-448-3856 or 866-756-2901 for all your roof inspection needs.

Why Should You Inspect Your Roof?

It doesn’t matter if your roof is steep (slope of more than 3:12), low sloped (slope of less than 3:12), or flat – all roofs should be examined regularly. We encourage roof inspections after any major weather events such as storms or earthquakes, to check for damages.

Because replacing a roof is always an expensive investment, lenders and insurance firms require that your roof is examined regularly so that they can accurately assess the risk and compute the premiums. Our roof inspections give you, the building owner or property manager, peace of mind, knowing that the roof and building are not putting the underlying equipment or lives of the occupants in danger. Our contractors are trained and equipped with the necessary tools to uncover even the smallest and most hidden roof problems.

Accurate Roof Inspections

During your roof inspection, one of our qualified inspectors will thoroughly inspect all parts of the roof. We begin by checking the structural integrity of the roof. The inspection covers both the exterior and interior of the roof, along with a close look at chimneys, dormers, shingles, and any other integral or affixed component of the roof. If your roof is older, its surface material will be examined for brittleness, and in new roofs, our expert pay extra attention to identification of settlement problems.

Simply put, our roof examinations are customized to meet the individual needs of our customers. Contact us at 515-448-3856 or 866-756-2901 and let us help you determine whether your roof is safe, how long it will last, and when it will require replacement or repair.

Spray Foam Insulation Fort Dodge, IA

If your wallet cringes every time you open the power bill for your commercial building, you’re not alone. High heating and cooling bills can be a huge downer for any business owner, but the good news is there is a way to lower those utility costs effectively and lastingly: spray foam insulation.

If your building is located in the Fort Dodge, IA, area, give Sadler Coating Systems a call at 866-756-2901 to learn more about this outstanding, energy efficiency-enhancing, bill-lowering insulation option. Don’t keep paying those huge bills!

A Superior Option

There truly is a better option for your facility than fiberglass or blown-in insulation. Spray foam insulation can not only greatly enhance the energy efficiency of your building, but it is extremely durable. Other benefits include:

  • R-value of R6.7 per inch—the highest available in the market!
  • Can cut your heating/cooling costs by as much as 40%
  • Meets building code requirements
  • Eligible for tax credits and utility rebates/incentives
  • Reinforces building structure
  • Adds an extra layer of protection as well as insulation
  • Halts exterior air infiltration and keeps heated/cooled air inside your building where it belongs
  • Reduces sound transmission
  • Cuts down on needed HVAC maintenance

The Heart of the Problem

If your building’s utility bills have increased or are just generally higher than you think they should be, your facility’s envelope seal could be the culprit.

When a building has an inadequate envelope seal, heated/cooled interior air starts to escape while outside air makes its way in. This causes your HVAC system to work overtime trying to keep the inside air at the correct temperature, and the results are an overworked HVAC system and heightened utility bills.

Spray foam insulation is a prime solution to this problem, correcting envelope seal issues and simultaneously helping to lower your energy bills. Having spray foam insulation even adds value to your property, making it an all-around outstanding solution!

Certified Services

At Sadler Coating Systems, we use a top-grade closed-cell spray foam insulation product that is one of the very best available. We also belong to the Spray Polyurethane Foam Alliance (SPFA) and are a seven-time recipient of the SPFA Industry of Excellence Award, which recognizes outstanding spray foam services. Each time we take on an interior insulation project, our SPFA PCP Certified Project Manager oversees the work, and the actual application is performed by a Certified Master Installer.

Roof coatings are a relatively new offering among roof restoration options. They are fully adhered, seamless membranes that are either sprayed or rolled on, and they have a plethora of benefits:

  • Reflective – Roof coatings can reflect up to 85% of the sun’s rays, translating to up to 30% in annual energy savings.
  • Cost-Effective – Coating your roof is much less expensive than a tear-off and replacement. Because they are faster, they save you money in both labor costs and material costs. Plus, you save on dump fees.
  • Elastic – Our premium Conklin roof coatings are specially formulated to bend and stretch with temperature fluctuations, reducing the stress to your roof’s structures.
  • Durable – The roof coatings we use at Sadler Coating Systems are extremely resilient to fire, wind, precipitation, and many other potentially damaging situations common to roofs.
