Goodbye tar and gravel flat roof. Hello TPO Membrane energy efficient flat roof! Ain’t it purdy?!
If you have a flat roof and you begin to see “alligator cracks” you know you’re in store for some trouble before long. Don’t be tempted by the lower price (possibly!) to do a quick mop over of your existing asphalt roof. Asphalt is simply old technology and is prone to failure. A good flat roof system is dependent upon expert workmanship for long term high performance. Excellent workmanship is harder and harder to find these days… Make sure to ask your roofing contractor an important question before you hire!

Gone are the days of tar and gravel flat roofs that offered little or no solutions when the roof inevitably began to leak. Today, there are many great options when it comes to flat roofing. As a consumer, it’s important to know your options and have, at least, a general level of knowledge when you speak with a roofing contractor. For example, what does a warranty cover? What material should your project use – TPO, EPDM, PVC? Does it matter which thickness? What are the benefits of a white roof versus a black roof?
In this post, we’ll talk about warranties and the most important question you need to ask about them.
These days, flat roofs offer energy efficient and long lasting solutions for your home or business. But even the best products will fail if not installed properly. A good roof is the collaboration of a quality product installed by a quality contractor and all manufactures know this. A roofing warranty will easily be invalid if the product was installed incorrectly.
The roofing mechanics at Flat Roofs By Pegram are specifically trained by each of our product’s manufacturers to ensure the roof is installed correctly. We never subcontract our work for this very reason – work performed by mechanics who are not trained in the product they are using will risk the manufacturer’s warranty. There is no value in that risk!
The most important question you can ask about a roofing warranty is whether the mechanics are specifically trained by the product’s manufacturer. If the answer to that question is anything other than a resounding YES, then buyer beware.
Flat Roofs By Pegram is committed to only using our own mechanics who are highly trained by each of our manufacturers. Additionally, every commercial roofing project is supervised and inspected by owner, Willie Pegram. We stand behind every warranty because we stand behind our roofing mechanics!
