Our knowledge of commercial roof repair not only involves understanding how your flat roof works but also how the architectural sheet metal work, the perimeter edge systems and sloped metal roofing, connects and interacts with it.  Leaks can originate in the metal trim, edging, counterflashing, or metal roofs. Water can then travel down and appear to come from under the flat roof.

Our thorough inspections will not only concentrate on the flat roof, but will also look at the metal details to see if they are in need of repair.

 M. Gottfried, Inc. has a full architectural sheet metal shop, and can fabricate custom copper, aluminum, galvanized steel and stainless metal flashings and roofs.

FAQs About M. Gottfried and Our Commercial Flat Roof Repair Services

We’re sure you have many questions about M. Gottfried, Inc., the roof repair process, and what to expect. Below are some of the most commonly asked questions.

My flat roof leaks, do I have to replace it?

No, lots of time we can repair leaks and your roof can last for many more years. M. Gottfried, Inc. can come to your property, inspect the roof for leaks, provide a proposal for the roof repairs. We can also evaluate your roof and determine a roof maintenance plan to keep your roof at peak performance, or, if the roof is at the end of its life span, develop a proposal for a new roof.

Do you work with general contractors?

Yes, depending on the project, we work with general contractors, construction managers, roof consultants, architects, or directly with a building owner.  

Do you do water tests?

Yes. Depending on where the leaks are appearing, what we see in our inspection, if the leak is difficult to find or only shows in certain rains, then it may be necessary to perform a water test to track down the source of the leak. Sometimes, after repairing difficult leaks, or if the owner requests it, we can water test after the repair to make sure the leak was found and has stopped.

Do you carry insurance?

Yes, we are fully insured and carry general liability, workers compensation, Auto, as well as other forms and types of insurance.

My building/project not only has a flat roof, but also a sloped roof. Can you repair that too?

Yes, in additional to flat roofs, we also do slate, shingle and metal sloped roofs.

I have a house with a commercial style flat roof. Will you work on it?

Yes, we will bring the same quality and attention to detail that we do on our commercial projects to your residential flat roof.

I have a large property with multiple leaking areas.  Can I break the repairs up into sections?

Yes, we can break repair work up into roof sections,  but keep in mind that sections not repaired will still leak won’t have their deficiencies repaired.

Can I fix my own leaky roof?

Going up on any roof is dangerous. Our personnel are trained in and have proper equipment for roofing safety, fall protection material handling, etc., They are also trained on the various roofing systems and what material to use for each system. Roof work should be performed by licensed, insured, professional roofing contractors.

Can you throw a tarp on my flat roof to temporarily stop it from leaking?

Tarps may (if properly installed) temporarily help on sloped roofs where they can go over the top and cover the leaking item, but on a flat roof laying a tarp on the flat surface does not accomplish anything. Water can get under the sides of the tarp, flow under it and get to the leak source. Tarps laid on a roof can also block roof drains and cause water to buildup. This adds weight to the roof. Also putting a tarp over a vent or hot pipe may cause venting and other problems.
