EPDM and PVC-based materials can be damaged when exposed to oil, jet fuel, and cooking grease. When there are such emissions in the area, the chemical composition of the single-ply membrane should be checked carefully.

The color should be complimentary and not blend into the same color of the exterior of the house. If deciding between a few different colors, create a mock up with a painted board that is the same color of the house and an actual shingle (or other roofing material) set against it.

But all too often this sign goes on ignored or attributed to something other than what is most likely causing the problem. This blistering or peeling of outside paint is usually the result of excessive moisture or high humidity due to poor ventilation especially in the attic. Inadequate ventilation results in hot air being trapped and built up in the attic. This excess heat can not only cook or in essence bake the roofing shingles but it also cause bubbling, blistering and peeling of the exterior paint around the gables and eaves and even the siding. Having properly working attic fans as well as bathroom exhausts are vital to avoiding this issue in your home and as it pertains to your roof.

Gutter repair Gutters are crucial, but most underestimated part of the roof, which plays a huge role in saving your roof from winter by keeping it dry and clear. Keep a regular check-up and cleaning schedule for gutters and if they damaged, get them replaced immediately. Gutters also save your fascia board and house walls from water damage and keep the walkways dry and clean. If your gutters are blocked, they won't remove roof water properly. Which means, there would be overflowing water all around your house, which could cause a lot of problems, including damage to the foundation of your house. As long as your gutters are clean and dry, they can be repaired or replaced (if damaged), even during winter, just as they can be repaired in summer. So, keep your gutters clear of any debris to maintain a good drainage system in your house, and save your roof.

It strongly adheres to the plywood roof deck providing a second line of defense to the underlayment. The barrier is applied to the most vulnerable parts of the roof. Depending on the type of roof this could be the valleys, eaves and rakes, or the entire deck surface.

Because there is only one layer, this type of roofing is thick. There are two types of single-ply roofs, first, thermoset membranes whose seams are sealed using adhesives and second, thermoplastic membranes whose seams are welded using heat or a solvent. There are three types of attachment for single-plys - ballasted, loose-laid and fully adhered. Because of its light weight, the single-ply is often used for re-covering. They are also quite inexpensive.
