Natick Roof

Posted by Robert Evans on Jul 23, 2014 12:38:00 PM

On July 3 a micro burst hit the downtownNatickarea ripping shingles off roofs and knocking down trees. It also ripped the roof off the Natick Outdoor Store. After spending July 4 on the roof at the Store we were able secure the rubber ahead of the on coming hurricane.

The roof that was ripped off we had installed in 1997 cutting it short of its life span.

The week following we were able to install a new Firestone fully adhered rubber roof with a better R-value insulation then what we had original installed. New four inch roof drains were sumped down to the roof deck. All new shop fabricated aluminum roof edging was install around the perimeter to finish off the jobphoto2MA30991312 0004 resized 600photo1MA30991312 0003 resized 600photo4MA30991312 0006 resized 600

This Gas pipe penetrating a Fully adhered EPDM Rubber roof was an issue due to the expanding and contracting over time causing roof leaks to enter the office building.  Building management called on Robert Evans Jr Contracting to solve the issue.  We used a Geocel Pro fit pitch pocket with a flexible sealer poured into pocket. All Problems solved no more leaks!
