Leak 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 leak inspections will not only concentrate on the flat roof, but will also look at the metal details to see if they are contributing to your leak.  M. Gottfried, Inc. has a full architectural sheet metal shop, and can fabricate custom copper, aluminum, galvanized steel and stainless metal flashings and roofs.
