There is no doubt that flat roofs can be
problematic. If your flat roof is leaking or
needs replacement, it's natural you'll want to
fix it as soon as possible. In some cases it
might be tempting to get someone you know to do
it, or even somebody a friend knows. It's not
un-common for a friend e.tc. to recommend a
'builder' they know, who will often be glad to
have a go. If this is the case it's essential you
check their credentials thoroughly and know
whether they really are a flat roofing contractor
before letting anyone loose on your roof.

It is extremely important to find out whether
anyone who claims to be a flat roofing contractor
actually specializes in this kind of roofing and
how long they have been doing it. The best
roofing companies Austin that specialize in flat
roofs have trained and certified installers and
all their work will be backed by guarantees. The
reason for being very careful is that unless you
get the best flat roofing contractor, you are
almost sure to get into trouble because flat
roofs are notoriously easy to get wrong - it's a
fact that the majority of roofers who do slating,
tiling etc. don't get involved with flat roofs
for this reason. The lack of drainage, together
with the myriad of sub-standard materials
available and the weather, make for a potential
minefield for an inexperienced flat roofing
contractor.

The range of materials that a flat roofing
contractor requires makes it easy to get your
hands on them, but very difficult to know which
are suitable, what they are designed for and how
long their life expectancy is. The most common
short cut or honest mistake is when an underlay
felt is used rather than a cap sheet as a top
layer, then coated with reflective silver paint
to protect it from the sun's UV radiation, this
is no substitute for a mineral cap sheet!

An experienced specialist metal roofing
installation will know from many years of
experience, which are the best materials for any
particular job. Somebody who specializes in their
field will often be able to buy the best
materials at negotiated prices which could mean
they work out no more expensive than the so
called cheaper materials. This is almost
certainly the case when comparing a quality job
to a cheap job, which usually cost more in
maintenance and roofing repair or replacement
over the medium term.
6
Another important factor you want to consider
about a flat roofing contractor is the overall
look of the finished job - like anything, you
want it to look the best it can. Straight lines,
neat corners and awkward details take years of
practice to perfect. Proven methods are passed
down the generations.
