EPDM roofing is a popular choice for commercial and residential flat and low-slope roofs due to its durability and weather resistance. Over time, like any roofing material, it may require repairs.
Here’s a step-by-step guide to how Interstate Roofing Fort Collins roofers perform EPDM roofing repairs:
Cleaning the Surface
Properly cleaning the damaged area is crucial for effective repairs. Use a cleaner specifically designed for EPDM roofing to remove dirt, debris, and any contaminants that could interfere with the adhesion of patching materials.
After cleaning, Colorado roofing specialists will allow the area to dry completely. Moisture can prevent proper adhesion of the patch material.
Cutting the Patch
For peel-and-stick EPDM patches, we carefully cut the patch material to the size and shape needed to cover the damaged area. We lave an extra inch or two around the damaged area to ensure proper coverage.
Placing the Patch
The patch is carefully positioned over the damaged area, ensuring it is centered and well-aligned. We press it firmly into place, starting from the center and working our way outward to remove any air bubbles or wrinkles.
Sealing the Edges
For peel-and-stick patches, we use a seam roller to ensure that the edges are securely sealed. This will help prevent water or debris from getting under the patch.
