Before & After

The transformation a commercial roof undergoes can be drastic. For every roof restoration or replacement project, we are fixing poor previous repairs, reversing storm damage, and creating a waterproof, energy-efficient system.

Unfortunately, these transformations are rarely seen from the ground.

On this page, you can get a bird’s eye view of some recent roofing projects. If you want the same type of transformation, contact us to book your free roof inspection.

Kutztown Tavern (Kutztown, PA)

Roof Replacement

This project consisted of removing the existing membrane and 3/4” insulation, and installing two layers of 1.5” Polyiso Insulation and white PVC membrane. We also installed walk pads around the roof units to protect the roof from foot traffic. By adding 3” of insulation, we increased the R-Value on this roof to about 17.1, making it much more energy efficient. The free lunch everyday, from the amazing chefs at Kutztown Tavern, was a nice bonus. Best food ever!

Dairy Advantage (New Holland, PA)

Membrane Restoration Project

This roof was in decent shape, however there were no crickets at the bottom edge to divert the water to the drains. Because of that, the roof had started to leak in that area. After installing tapered insulation crickets, we applied base coat and fabric to the membrane seams on the entire roof, and then top coated it with our white PUMA XL acrylic coating. That allowed us to warranty this roof for 18 years.

American College (Bryn Mawr, PA)

Roof Replacement

This ballasted roof was a fun little project. After removing the rocks and EPDM membrane, we installed a layer of 1.5” Polyiso Insulation and PVC Membrane.

Littlestown Foundry (Littlestown, PA)

Roof Replacement

We used a roof saw to cut this tar and gravel roof into small squares, making it easier to remove. After taking everything off down to the metal decking, we installed 2” Polyiso insulation and PVC membrane.

Warren Animal Hospital (Phillipsburg, NJ)

Fabric Reinforced Membrane

We completed this little fabric reinforced coatings project late in the fall, which was a bit of a challenge with all the leaves coming off the trees and landing on the roof. Thankfully, the project was a success and looked great when we were finished. The customer told me later that by changing the roof from black to white, parts of the interior that they were having trouble cooling in the summer was no longer a problem.

Apartment Complex (Stroudsburg, PA)

Spray Polyurethane Foam

This apartment building roof had a lot of leaks. Thankfully it was in good enough shape that we didn’t have to tear it off. After cleaning it, we applied 1.5” of Spray Polyurethane Foam to the roof, prior to coating it. The foam added significant R-Value to the roof, and at the same time allowed us to correct some of the ponding issues on the roof.

Dunkelberger’s Sports Outfitters (Stroudsburg, PA)

Roof Replacement

Two sections of this roof were in good enough shape that we were able to apply our Fabric Reinforced Coating System right on top of the existing EPDM (black rubber). The main section was saturated with water, so on that section we removed the existing roofing and insulation and installed a new PVC membrane system.

Theodore E Dando D.M.D. (Hamburg, PA)

Roof Replacement

This dentist’s office roof was completely flat, and looked like a lake every time it rained. After removing the existing EPDM (black rubber) and insulation, we installed a tapered insulation system and white PVC membrane. The peak and slight slope to the edges, which we created with our tapered insulation, completely took care of the ponding issues. We also installed new 7” commercial box gutters on two sides of the building.

Goldstar Properties (Clinton, NJ)

Spray Polyurethane Foam

This roof already had two layers of roofing on it, and the owner preferred not to do a complete replacement. Our solution was to simply spray 1.25” of Spray Polyurethane Foam and two coats of acrylic coatings right on top of the existing roll roofing. Spray foam adds minimal weight to the roof, which makes it a great option when adding another layer of membrane roofing is not an option.

Abbottstown Industries (Abbottstown, PA)

Metal Roof Restoration

This little metal roof was leaking and rusting really bad at the seams and screws. By applying our Metal Roof Restoration System, we were able to stop all the leaks and provide the customer with an 18 year leak-free warranty.

Amazing Kidz Daycare (Reading, PA)

Membrane Restoration Project

For Amazing Kidz Daycare’s Sixth Street location, we had to go in a back alley that was barely wide enough for our coatings trailer to fit through. We used a Rapid Roof III acrylic base coat and 5″ Spunflex Fabric on the seams, and a White Rapid Roof III top coat on the entire roof.

Aras Fine Rug Cleaning (Malvern, PA)

Roof Replacement

This was an old .75” Fiberboard and Modified Bitumen Roof. After removing that, we installed 5” of PolyIso Insulation with an R- Value of 28.5, prior to covering it with white TPO Membrane. This customer will be saving lots of money on future heating and cooling costs.

Amazing Kidz Daycare (Reading, PA)

Roof Replacement

The existing roof was multiple layers of membrane, ranging for Modified Bitumen to EPDM (black rubber). Prior to installing our new system, we removed it all, including three layers of flashings on the perimeter wall. We also replaced some wood decking that was rotted.

Hometown Farmers Market (Tamaqua, PA)

Roof Replacement

This little roof was EPDM (black rubber) with no slope at all. After removing the existing insulation and membrane, we installed a tapered insulation system to create drainage, and white PVC Membrane. We were able to provide the customer with a 25 year warranty.

Groff Tractor & Equipment (Ephrata, PA)

Metal Roof Restoration

Even though we like all types of commercial roofing, Metal Restorations are some of our favorites. This 10,000 square foot metal roof was no exception. This project called for Encase Metal Primer, Benchmark acrylic base coat with embedded fabric on all seams, Kwik Kaulk elastomeric acrylic caulk compound on screw heads, and Puma XL polyurethane modified acrylic top coat on entire roof.

JM Lapp Plumbing and Heating (New Holland, PA)

Roof Replacement

This roof had wood decking, 1” insulation, and EPDM membrane (black rubber). It was leaking in multiple area. We removed the EPDM, all areas of wet insulation, and replaced the wood decking where it was rotting. After adding an additional layer of 2” insulation, we installed new, white TPO membrane.
