Pitch Flat Roof
The homeowner had a flat roof on their porch the water did not drain properly. As a result, they had roof leaks from the standing water. They intended the porch to be converted to a living space and without leaks. So we contracted to remove the existing roof material down to wood decking. We then installed 2×8 sleepers on the flat roof for a positive roof drain. Allowing for spacing so AC ducting could enter the room underneath. When ready we applied 4×8 4ply cdx plywood sheathing on the rafters. The roof material was self-adhered Flintlastic. It consists of a pliable base that adheres to the wood decking and a top cap sheet. Water no longer sits on the roof.
As general contractors, we can build and install systems that other roofers cannot do having only a roof license. There are many options available for the homeowner when it comes to pitching flat roofs. One popular system is a taper roof system.
Taper Roof Systems
Taper roof systems can pitch a flat roof 1/8″ and 1/4″ per foot. The taper boards can also add some insulating value to the roof. These taper boards are installed to the wood deck with screws and 3″ plates to hold to the deck. Depending on the conditions and expense the right system can be installed to meet your needs.
With systems available today there is no reason a homeowner should put up with roof water leaks. We are available for consultation as to which system or product is best suited for your conditions.
