When your roof leaks – be it a flat or a sloped roof – you are faced with two choices: repair or replace. When you decide to replace your leaking roof, do you want to install another cheap but low quality roof that will last you maybe 10 years with, accompanied by more roof leaks and roof repairs?
MA Roofing Contractor – Flat and Metal Roofing in Massachusetts
We believe that for Massachusetts homeowners, the best roofing solution is to install a Lifetime roof such as a metal roofing system or a PVC flat roofing membrane. Both PVC flat roof membranes and metal roofing systems are true lifetime roofs that also provide additional benefit of being Cool Roofs and will greatly reduce your cooling costs in the summer, as well as qualify for $1500 Cool Roof Tax Credit in some cases*.
A properly installed Metal or PVC roof will last 0ver 50 years in case of most metal roofing systems and over 30 years for most PVC roofs.
Metal roofs are very common in norther New England (NH, ME and VT) due to their excellent long lasting durability and will prevent / eliminate Ice-Dams and related roof leaks as a result of their ice and water shedding design. In Massachusetts, metal roofs are becoming more and more popular, as we too have the same Ice Dams problems and need a beautiful and permanent solution for roof leaks.
Metal roofing is durable, light weight, long-lasting roofing material which offers the best price ratio of all other roofing materials, when you consider cost per year of leaks-free roof service. Average metal roof lasts over 50 years, and during this time you are not dealing with roof leaks, roof repairs and do not also throw money away on additional repairs of rotten roof deck, replacement of wet insulation, and interior repairs such as wet sheet-rock, carpets and wall repairs.

When it comes to low-slope and flat roofing you want a true professional to service or install your flat roof. Unlike sloped roofing, where water flows down, and it is fairly easy to identify where your roof may or will leak, on flat roof water can flow in any direction or not flow at all.
Most flat roofs leak due to ponding water, curb flashing and seam failures. It is very rare that a field sheet of any flat roofing material will leak by itself. You will usually find that a flat roof leaks near the chimney, skylight, roof to wall connection or were water stands for more than 48-72 hours after rain.
Because most flat roofing systems (rubber roof, rolled asphalt, modified bitumen and tar+gravel roofs) fail at the seams and penetrations, we chose to install a flat roofing material that eliminates the seam failures all together -PVC roofing membrane with hot-air welded seams and flashings. Once you weld two pieces of PVC roofing material, your seam will be stronger than the material itself.
PVC roofing membrane is warranted against ponding water roof leaks and comes with a complete set of roof flashing and accessories: Inside / Outside corners, pipe flashings ranging from 1/4 inch pipe diameter, to a whooping 18 inches pipe flashing for extra large pipes such as fire-place and wood stove exhaust. All accessories are welded to the roof itself, to ensure permanent watertight penetration flashing.

While not all roof repairs are economical, you can often extend the life of your roof at a fraction of the roof replacement cost. We provide roof repair services in Metro Boston and eastern Massachusetts to home-owners and small businesses. We specialize in Metal Roof repairs such as standing seam metal roofs, interlock aluminum shingle roof repairs, copper roof re-soldering, etc.
When it comes to flat roof repairs, we provide flat roof repair service for all single ply flat roofing systems: PVC Roofing, TPO roof and EPDM Rubber roofs. Depending on your flat roof material we will use either PVC, TPO or Rubber flashing membrane and for EPDM roof repair we will use peel+stick roof flashing material together with EPDM primer.
For thermoplastic flat roofs (PVC and TPO roofing) we will use reinforced and non-reinforced roofing membrane depending on the specifics of your roof leak.
All PVC and TPO roof repairs will be performed using hot-air welding equipment by Leister, unless your roof is cured to the point of being un-weldable. In that case we will use peel-and-stick repair membrane.
