Overcoming a Cracked Foam Roof

By Coolidge, Roofing RepairNo Comments

In Coolidge, Arizona we did a pretty impressive roof repair, that made the customer very happy.  The challenge was overcoming a cracked foam roof, without replacing it entirely.  This is how aGAF Roofing Contractor - overcoming a cracked foam roof foam roof repair takes into consideration not only the roof, but also the customer’s wants and needs.

The Problem to Overcome With This Roof

This was a very unique roofing situation.  The customer had a shingle roof, which then had a foam roof applied on top of that.  In addition, a roof coating was applied as well.  Because of these layers, there was no damage to the underlaying of the roof’s structure.

The problem was that part of the foam roof had split off onto the side.  This was caused primarily due to the air conditioning unit continuously leaking water.  Along with this, and daily exposure to the outside elements, it destroyed the coating in a patch.  From there, the water made a pathway down the side of the roof.

When other roofing contractors looked at the situation, their only conclusion was to replace the entire roof.  An complete roof replacement was not the only option that Castile Roofing saw.

Castile Roofing’s Solution

Considering that the rest of the roof was in good shape, the customer was not ready to replace their entire roof prematurely.  After a careful assessment, we determined that there was an alternative solution.  Our conclusion not only protected their home once again, it was more what the customer wanted in the first place.

Our roofers were able to re-attach the section that had split off.  Then, using a mixture of polyester and super putty, they filled  and sealed the section, and every single crack the water had created.  After that, we applied  multiple layers of roof coating to ensure the roof was sealed.  Not only did ensure that the roof was fully protected, it also gave it a fantastic finish.  The best part is, this roof won’t need to be replaced for about 10 years.
