I amb a pressure cleaning contractor in montana(17 yrs in florida so not sure if this is how its done here). I need to find out if this is typical for flat roofs in the north west.
*gas lines propped up by blocks of wood (6x6 treated lumber) when i went to move them, roofing and underlament pulled off with the blocks. (only tried one block but it looks like the roof ( which was put on last summer i was told)has stuck or in some places applied with the blocks left where they were.
*the highest point of the roof are the drains. after a rain there is lake up there a day later, in some places 2 inches deep.
*in some places where the roofing is wrinkled, i can grab it with my fingers and literal pull it off.
The customer is having problems with this commercial building leaking in two different rental areas. the roofer says theres nothing he can do until warmer weather. I am going to meet with him tomorrow and show him the areas im concerned about.
Id like to understand a little more about how flat roofs are supposed to be put together. nearly all the roofs i’ve worked on in florida were rubber or covered in pvc sheeting. i’ve never seen a tar flat room like this.
anyone herehave any experience with this type of roof that can explain to me how its suppose to look. if these huge puddles are normal,andif the material is suppose to be this fragile?
I should also mention that all the commercial buildings i’ve seen, their gas lines were propped up by aluminum brackets, or at the least pvc. i’ve never seen wooden blocks stuck to the roof like this.
