Low Slope Roof Restoration in Citrus Heights, CA

Low Slope Roof Restoration in Citrus Heights, CA

 

This homeowner on Saint Philomena Way in Citrus Heights recently had the roof replaced by a different roofer. Even still the roof was experiencing leaks. Trying to fix the problem, they called us, Level 1 Roofing to solve the issue with the leaks. In order to save the homeowner money and not have to remove and replace the flat roof, we proposed a roof restoration. Using a high solids silicone to completely seal and waterproof the roof for decades to come. Our crews started on the process by identifying laps, corners, and penetrations that have the largest chance of developing into leaks and applied seam sealant material to these areas to ensure water does not penetrate the seams. This material is reinforced with fibers to give these sections extra strength and protection. The silicone roof restoration service we provide allows you to take nearly any low or flat roof and make it perform as well if not better then when it was new. With a warranty of up to 25 years on material and labor, it is no wonder why for this Citrus Heights roof was restored instead of replaced.

Not only does the coating system reflect over 90 percent of the sunlight it also does not store the heat nearly as much as darker roof materials. This means big savings on cooling costs. Especially in a case like this where the HVAC unit is roof-mounted and is directly impacted by the roof temperature. This cool roof also stops much of the heat out of your attic and interior of your house. Making your cooling system work less is key in keeping your energy bill down.

Shingle Roof Replacement & Roof Restoration in Cameron Park, CA

Shingle Roof Replacement & Roof Restoration in Cameron Park, CA

 

This Cameron Park home was in escrow when we got the call for an estimate. Our estimator David visited the property to diagnose the leak and give the realtor and customers a price to repair. The option chosen was to do a roof replacement on one plane or facet of the roof as well as use a silicone coating system on the flat roof sections between the pitched roofs. Many of the roof repairs requested by realtors or homeowners in escrow require a quick turnaround time. In this case, an expert roof inspector the condition of the roofs the next morning and submitted our proposal for repairs later that same day. Once some questions were answered and we had a signed agreement we got started on the roof within a week.

Lakeside Church Folsom Roof Restoration Coating Installation

Lakeside Church Folsom Roof Restoration Coating Installation

When Folsom’s Lakeside Church management was faced with an aged and failing roof, many other roofers would want to do a roof replacement or reroof. While tearing off the old flat roof and installing a new rolled or TPO roof would be one way to go, Level 1 Roofing, Inc offers options when sending bids for any roof. A roof replacement will do the trick but the price will be much higher than the silicone roof restoration we installed on this low slope roof in Folsom. The silicone coating system we use creates a monolithic seal for your entire roof. Not only does this save you money by not removing the existing roofing, we can offer our Level 1 Roofing Warranty on top of up to a 25-year material and labor warranty straight from the manufacturer.

Our silicone roofing process starts by cleaning the existing roof surface. If there is loose gravel on the roof we will either scrape or use a vacuum to remove any loose gravel. On this Folsom church building, we did not have any gravel to worry about. Our crews will then start applying the seam sealant silicone on all laps of the roof material and the areas surrounding the drains. Then, the final coat of the silicone coating solution is sprayed on evenly across the entire roof deck and walls.

Since we can continue using the existing roofing this becomes a much more environmentally friendly roofing system. Less roofing and asphalt end up in landfills. The bright and reflective white silicone coating is also energy star rated. Around 90 percent of the sun’s light is reflected. This means a drastically cooler roof and building when compared even to a medium grey rolled asphalt roof. Cooler temperatures can mean big savings for your wallet and a lower carbon footprint.

Chevron in Beaumont – TPO roof system & Standing Seam Metal

TPO roof system & Standing Seam Metal

For this commercial/retail single-ply TPO and standing seam metal new construction roofing project Level 1 Roofing was hired to do the job. We completed the 20 Year GAF NDL warranty for the TPO roof system. This Chevron gas station, convenience store, and car wash is now open to the public of Beaumont and the surrounding communities. This was the commercial property owners first time choosing to try a single-ply roofing system like TPO instead of a built-up asphalt based roof. The reflective and bright white of the TPO roof keeps the roof and building cooler than other traditional roofing methods such as BUR or EPDM. We used a mechanically attached 60 Mil Everguard GAF TPO and accessories to finish this new construction project. At Level 1 Roofing we noticed a large momentum swing toward more environmentally friendly and renewable materials in new construction roofing and tenant improvement projects and plans. Level 1 Roofing hopes to advance that trend as we push towards these better options especially on larger commercial roofing projects. When combining the impact of reduced heat, reduced cooling costs, and reduced landfill waste everyone stands to gain from cleaning roofing and construction.

Glasswerks Warehouse Roof Restoration in Temecula, CA

This 170,000 square foot commercial building in Temecula was bringing in some new tenants who wanted to make sure the roof would be solid. Level 1 Roofing was contacted to provide some options for this roof. Originally a full roof replacement with TPO was discussed and considered. Since the integrity of the existing roof was still intact we could restore the roof with a premium silicone roof coating, even with some current leaks. The installation of silicone coating by Level 1 Roofing is backed by a great 20-year labor and material warranty from the manufacturer.

Watch video below to see the before, during and after of the roof restoration process.

Here is a quick rundown of the silicone roof restoration process and how it is different from a typical roof replacement. We do not need to have to perform the costly removal of the existing roof. Tear off itself can cost upwards of 5 figures in labor and disposal costs on a roof this size. We start with cleaning the main roof deck with pressure washers. The purpose of this is to make sure our silicone coating has the best surface possible for adhesion. The less dirt and debris the better. Our roofers then apply reinforced “butter grade” silicone to drains and penetrations.

We are glad to help our neighbors as a roofing contractor serving Temecula. Our Murrieta office is less than a mile and a half from this warehouse building and it is pleasure with work with the owners of this building. Supporting local business and new in the Temecula area is something Level 1 Roofing strives for. Saving businesses money with roof restoration instead of costly roof replacement is just one reason Level 1 Roofing’s coating division has grown so quickly in over the years.

Shingle Roof Replacement Roseville, CA

Shingle Roof Replacement Roseville, CA

This home was in need of a new shingle roof on their house. We installed full shingle roof replacement, otherwise known as a re-roof. Level 1 Roofing came in and removed all of the existing roof layers down to the plywood sheathing. We put down 30 # felt directly on to the sheathing with plastic cap nails. As far as metal we went with new metal flashings (roof jacks) for all pipes and ventilation painted black and 24-inch valley metal in the valleys. The homeowner went with a great Owens Corning Preferred Contractor 50 year labor and material warranty. We are glad to be a local roofer in Roseville that can offer a great warranty on roof replacements.

Many older wood shake roofs are now failing and the cost of replacing a shake roof with a new shake roof is much higher than it used to be. The new fire rating and code changes have made new shake roofs very expensive and uncommon. In this case, we installed an Owens Corning asphalt shingle with all new metal flashings and valley metal. Your roof is really your first and last defense against the elements. Don’t let just anyone install a roof. Get a roof system with an excellent warranty. Leak-free peace of mind for your new roof.

Single-Ply PVC roofing system and siding at the AutoZone in Littlerock, CA

Single-Ply PVC roofing system

New Construction Single-Ply Membrane Project

This project in Littlerock, CA included both a GAF PVC 50 mil roofing system installed over polyiso along with siding on this new construction build. PVC roofing systems are long lasting performance roofing membranes that have been around for longer than you may think. The first PVC roof membrane was formulated in the late 1960’s but didn’t start catching on until the 1970’s. PVC roofs have been shown to have 30 plus year of durability. Newer formulations have been improved since early days in regards to temperature performance.

Single-Ply PVC roofing system

Adding walk-pad to a single ply membrane roof helps prolongs the longevity of the roof, especially in high traffic areas. Constant servicing of HVAC units can wear on the roof but walk-pad helps alleviate that issue.
