Metal Roof Installation in Attleboro, MA

without comments

This beautiful two story house an Attleboro, MA featured a lot of custom made brick masonry such as fences, walkways etc. No wonder, when the time came to replace the roof the owner decided to go with red. A Tamco stainless steel stone crest slate texture shingles in gorgeous Sequoya Red color were picked along with matching trim and flashings. There was also custom made perforated drip edge ordered, to ensure the proper roof ventilation. There was also a standalone garage and shed that needed reroofing with the same metal shingles.

First of all we had to strip two layers of existing asphalt shingles and inspect the roof deck for any rot damage.img_1930-640x480

In general, it is a good idea to inspect a roof deck before installing a permanent solution such as metal shingles or IB membrane. After the strip was done we installed GAF Deck Armor breathable underlayment to make sure it was watertight. After putting drip edge and trim in place we started installing shingles themselves.img_1992-640x480

Two chimneys were flashed with custom made flashings from the color matching trim coil.img_2062-640x480

The shingles are interlocking, which means that they have locks on all four sides and each shingle in this system is held in place with six other shingles. After the shingles where done a metal ridge caps were installed on all ridges.



As the result – beautiful new roof that matched the house and brick fence with a lifetime warranty.

Trocal PVC Roof Repair in West Hartford, CT

without comments

ID Flat Roof is an authorized installer of IB Roof PVC membrane– the best solution for the flat roofs market these days. There are other PVC roofing products on the market but all of them have different weaknesses and none have strengths ofIB PVC Roof.

We received a call from a client in West Hartford, CT about the old Trocal roof. Even though the Trocal PVC roofs have been on the market for a while they have one very big issue: they get fragile at the temperatures around zero degrees Celsius (32 F) and exponentially become more and more brittle as temperature drops further. In our case it was a combination of things: very cold weather (which is not that unusual for Connecticut in December-January period) and wind that broke of the branch of the tree near the house. The branch fell on the roof completely shattering 15×6 feet section.


We decided to repair that section withIB PVC Membrane – first of all because it is not sensitive to the temperature fluctuations and is very flexible and second because it can be hot air welded to the existing Trocal PVC. We started with cleaning up approximately 25×6 feet section making sure that there are absolutely no cracks left behind. Then we replaced old drip edge and made sure that old insulation and PVC is fastened reliably using 2” barbed plates. The old fasteners weren’t working very well and there were definitely not enough of them.Then old PVC was cleaned using acetone and the pieces of newIB PVC membrane were installed and welded together and to the old PVC.


Now the single piece of IB membrane and old Trocal was formed and roof became completely watertight again.
