Roof Framingham

Posted by Robert Evans on Apr 5, 2014 3:54:00 PM

Boyle Bros. funeral home in Framingham discovered a leak this winter and called us to look at it, on the flat section of there building a rubber was installed over a tar and gravel roof. A half inch fiber board was mechanically fastened over the tar and gravel, the problem with fiber board in a go over application is it acts like a sponge and sucks up water before showing any signs of a leak.

In Boyle Bros. case the roof had been leaking for years from a hole in the rubber and until the weight of this winters snow squeezed the water from the saturated fiber board.

We stripped off the roof and installed a new rubber roof with half inch recovery board instead of fiber board. With a warranty of ten years on our labor and fifteen years on materials we included an inspect of the roof in the fallphoto1MA30970304 0003 resized 600photo3MA30970304 0005 resized 600photo4MA30970304 0006 resized 600
