Roof sealing on standing seam flat roof in Washington DC. Sealing a flat roof is generally done on metal roofs or modified roofs. The product is more of a paint sealer than anything and can help in sealing small cracks in seams and membranes, as well as being reflective. #flatroofcontractor

Flat roof installed by Complete Roofing Solutions in Washington DC.  The material choice was Firestone TPO and a ten square project.  Washington DC is still dominated by older Modified flat roofs,  however single ply membrane roofs are becoming the roof of choice in the city.  All flat roofs have unique attributes to them.  Things we consider when determining roof products are drainage, penetration types, grade and if solar panels are present.

Understanding flat roofs is critical as most are application based. There are five basic basic types of flat roof. They all require periodic inspection and can need maintenance to fix any punctures, tears, cracks or cuts. They are all in rolls of 1 yard except for Single-ply Membrane which come folded or in large rolls.
Built-up Roofing: This method, known simply as BUR, is done by overlapping rolls of treated felt using hot (molten) tar or asphalt. It becomes brittle and cracks up over the years. These roofs are not commonly installed today, however many are still being serviced.
Single-Ply Membrane Roofs: This type is excellent but requires propane torch heat to install the seams. There are also membrane roofs like EPDM and TPO. These are the most common among flat roofs in Washington DC.
Sprayed Polyurethane Foam: This kind of roofing material is sprayed, or squeegeed flowed onto the surface and may be protected by a special second coating.
Modified Bitumen Roll Roofing: This is a method in which a single layer of asphalt-treated, granule coated felt is cold cement sealed or hot sealed to the primed decking or to a base sheet.
"SA" Self-adhesive (SBS, APP or modified bitumen) rolls. This type of flat roof was common in Washington DC during the 70's, 80's and 90's.  Feel free to contact Complete Roofing Solutions about your flat roof needs at www.rooffixed.com.   #flatroofcontractorwashingtondc

Chimney flashing is in the top five shingled roof problems. In the photo, you see apron flashing(the metal standing vertically) at the brick. Under this apron flashing is another flashing called step flashing. These to flashings work together and both fail in different ways. Typically apron flashing is sealed with caulk at the top. This caulk does deteriorate and can simply be sealed after about fifteen years on a new roof. The step flashing is something you can't see. This can really only be diagnosed by a professional. Chimney's do create many areas that can act as roof leaks. Loose bricks and improper capping can also lead to water infiltration. If you are having water infiltrate your home near the chimney, you should focus on these possible issues. Also note, the chimney typically runs through the top floor of the home and runs to a base fireplace. The chimney location will likely be buried in a wall at upper floors. #chimneyleaks

The shed dormer on single family homes are typically very low slope. We see in the field that most people have shingles on these roofs as you will see in the attached video. Many if not most of these roofs should be treated as flat roofs.
