No Construction Needed 2
What happens when a stucco wall terminates right at the flat roofline? I think we all know it usually causes chronic leaking. Picture this. A beautiful modern Laguna Beach home nestled on the hillside with vast Pacific Ocean views. Yet, every window this homeowner looks out, he sees another one of his leaky, unappealing tar and gravel roof systems that wasn’t appropriately constructed when the house was built. It immediately reminds him of the thousands
  Despite the fact that the exterior of the property is the first line of defense against environmental hazards, let’s be real, most of the time it lacks the attention it needs. Daily exposure to weather – UV, snow, ice, hail, high winds, scorching heat, etc. – increases the risk of damage not only to the roof but the structure below. Over the last few years, with the increase in natural weather disasters throughout the
Even if a storm doesn’t cause torrential rain or hail, wind alone can cause enough damage to your property to call for repair. However, if you are a property owner in an area affected by a severe storm, you know just how costly and inconvenient damage can be to your building and your daily business operations. The cost and inconvenience to have your roof replaced due to damage takes this inconvenience to another level with
  The 2017 hurricane season has already been quite catastrophic – with Harvey, Irma, Jose and now Maria, news and weather sources are saying this is one of the worst years yet by meteorological standards. However, there no clear signs of letting up just yet, with two more months to go. A recent article in USA Today states that the seven hurricanes that have formed this year double the average to date. And there have
  September is coming to an end and the dog days of summer are numbered. With the fall weather upon us, it is cooler at night, cold and dewy in the morning or even damp. As you know, rainy/damp days can present challenges when performing flat roof repairs or restorations in cooler weather. Super VOC compliant and Zero VOC content coatings are elastomeric and susceptible to early wash off if not cured properly before exposure
  There are several things to consider before jumping into your next roof restoration or waterproofing project. Some things to think about are roof size, style, climate, environmental stipulations, sustainability and susceptibility to further damage. When in the planning stages of your project, it’s important to do your research, look at the products available on the market even interview the companies that offer waterproofing solutions to find the best product for your property. The right
Making good decisions is essential to reducing short and long-term costs associated with any property improvement related projects. This is especially true when it comes to the larger, more complex projects like re-roofing. The first major decision that should be made is whether to simply patch leaks and damaged areas, perform a partial restoration or if it is necessary, to complete a full restoration project. The good news is, with the right product, a partial
Before the creation of SureCoat Roof Systems, our construction company had used just about every roof coating product on the market since the 70’s. So it’s safe to say we’ve seen what’s out there and we’ve witnessed the interesting transformation of what is known as the commercial roofing warranty. Back in the day, warranties were a sign of good faith between a contractor and an owner, but now they have become more of a prop
Investing in a roof system is a big deal. It’s not just about choosing the right products or understanding how a warranty covers you, but it’s also about connecting with the right individuals who can install those products the right way. SureCoat has 40+ years of experience behind it from all aspects of the construction industry, so believe us when we say we’ve been around the block a time or two. ;D The point being
  When you make a big purchase, the manufacturer or seller usually makes a substantial promise to back their product or service, also known as that little thing called a warranty. And, federal law requires that these “guarantees” or “assurances” be available for you to read before you buy a product. Yes, we did say read. And yes, trying to make sense of said warranties is like trying to read another language when you don’t
