This Flat Rubber roof in Massachusetts was completed a few years ago by Robert Evans Jr Contracting Inc.

Flat Rubber roofs can last up to 40 years if well maintained by your roofing contractor. All seams, corners, penetrations in roof, and edge flashing should be inspected annually for wear and tear. Any ponding water on your flat roof should be avoided also to keep your roof at peak performance.

Rubber roof maintenance

Posted by Robert Evans on Apr 17, 2014 1:26:00 PM

Big customer inMilfordcalled about a roof leak on a roof we installed in 1999. Upon inspection of the roof it turned out that the leak was not the roof, but an HVAC unit that was leaking. The labor warranty on the roof has expired so the customer has purchased an extended warranty through us for an additional five years. This entails inspecting the roof twice a year, performing preventative maintenance and cleaning the roof drains, as it turned out the roof needs nothing at this time. With rubber roofs some time all it takes and some minor maintenance to extend the life of the roof, and some times without regular maintenance it could end up being a whole roof replacement.pic 101 resized 600
