Flat Roofs

Flat Roof systems are the most common style roof used for commercial and business properties. They are also one of the most expensive and difficult roofing systems to work with. When commercial flat roos are damaged, an insurance adjuster will come make a claim and pay according to the extent of damgage done to the flat roof. This is where we excel, as we have over 15 years experience with commercial flat roofs.

Flat Roof Repair

Flat roofs are repaired when there is not enough damage to claim it as a complete loss. Flat roofs should not be worked on by just anyone, as they require a tricky process of removal and repair. These flat roofs are not built like a regular residential composite shingle roof. If your flat roof needs repair from damages caused by hail or storms, we are here to assist you step-by-step until the process is complete.

Flat Roof Replacement

If your commercial building has enough damage to require a complete removal and replacement, your insurance company will file a claim and send you a check for the money needed to pay us to replace the entire flat roof. This is the most common thing we experience with commercial flat roofs, as it does not take much for the insurance company to consider the flat roof totalled.

Shingle Repair

Shingle Repair is different from Roof Replacement. When a roof is damaged by hail or storms and there are more than 8-10 bruises (knicks, dings, breaks etc) the insurance company will deem the roof as totalled and pay for the roof to be replaced through an insurance claim. If your roof has less than 8-10 Bruises, the insurance company is likely to only give you enough money to cover the cost of having only those specific damaged shingles replaced. This is a service we can offer in a very timely and cost efficient manner.

Composition Shingle Repair

Composition Shingles are the most common shingle used on residential homes due to cost efficiency, as well as they are very easy to get and work with.

Tile Shingle Repair

Tile Shingles are are more popular shingle used on higher end homes, like the ones in Castle Pines or Cherry Hills. There are still many homes that use Tile shingles as they are very aesthetically appealing and have a very durable and strong finish to them, although they are usually more costly than composition shingles.

Presidential TL Shingle Repair

Presidential TL Shingles are the most beautiful Lifetime Roof System in the industry today. Most Homeowners that are replacing their existing Wood/ Cedar Shake Roof will replace with a presidential TL shingle. They have a lifetime/ 50 year Manufacturer’s Warranty and is backed by 2 year workmanship warranty. You also will receive yearly discounts on your Homeowners Insurance because of the impact resistant material.

Residential Storm Damage

5Residential Storm Damage is very common across the USA, including right here in Colorado; due to all of the variations of weather conditions we experience. Damage can be due to snow, ice, rain, hail, tornadoes and high winds. These storms will cause siding, window, gutter and roof damage, to name a few. Legacy Roofing specializes in services related to these issues, everything from roof replacement to interior painting and drywall repairs from water damage that can be the result of a leaking roof.

Storm Damage caused by Hail

We service more homes with roof damage caused by hail than any other type of damage. The main reason for this is that Colorado experiences some very intense hail storms that result in multiple shingles with hail bruising. There are billions of dollars each year claimed through insurance companies for roof replacements due to hail storms and the damage they cause. For example, July, 2011 Hail Storms in Denver, CO caused over 15,000 homes that required complete roof replacement. A roof is considered totaled when 8-10 hail bruises are recognized per 10′ x 10′ square.

Windows and Siding Storm Damage

Windows and Siding are the #2 major home repair when it comes to major damage caused by storms. We have everything covered when it comes to window and trim replacement and repair, as well as siding replacement caused by large hail. Be sure to have your insurance adjuster walk your entire proprty after the hail/wind storm to account for any window and siding damage.

Seamless Gutters

Roofing and seamless gutters often wear out at the same time. Whenever possible, it is better to replace the roof and gutter at the same time. This will help insure that the roofing and gutters systems interact with each other properly and all flashing is functioning correctly between these two very important components.
There are several different types of seamless gutter material in the market place today. Each product has pros and cons. In our opinion, we have found that when correctly installed, heavy gauge aluminum gutters perform as well or better than any other system.
When we install gutters, we use a 0.032 pre finished aluminum stock and install hidden hangers on every rafter. We do not use pre formed box miters for the corners as these often fail prematurely and are not very attractive. Instead, we custom cut our miters on site to make sure they fit your home perfectly. This results in a gutter system that is sturdy and maintenance free for many years. Over the years we have installed many miles of gutter and strongly believe this is the best overall system to use.
When we install gutters and downspouts, we usually install downspout extensions (where possible). It is very important to move the water away from your foundation walls. This should be done with extensions and maintaining positive drainage away from the home through landscape grading. Over the years, landscaping often settles and it is important to monitor the slopes and add fill dirt if needed.
colorado guttersMany of our customers are also concerned about leaves and debris clogging up their gutters. There are several options that can help minimize leaf build up. Gutter helmet or leaf guards can be used to help or prevent clogs and keep your downspouts running freely. These products can be very effective and help keep your seamless gutters clean and fully functional. Please check with your salesman for current product availability.

What to know about Residential Roof Damage

Learn about our insurance claim services.
Tips to Filing a Roof Insurance Claim
Tragedy has struck you and your family in an indescribable way. What do you do now? Where do you go? Do not panic! Your Homeowner insurance claim is one of the many ways you can get help. When you file that claim though, be informed. The following guidelines will help you in the event of any Storm Damage caused by Hail & Wind Damage, prepare yourself before disaster strikes.
1. Know your coverage | Many people feel that their insurance company may have pulled a fast one on them when their claim is denied. A simple way to avoid this is to know your coverage. Get out that brochure that your insurance agent gave you when you signed your contract. Cannot find it? Call your insurance company and ask them to send you another one, and read it from beginning to end.
2. Know the amount of your deductible | When you sign a contract with your insurance company, you agree to a deductible, a basic amount to be deducted from the amount claimed. Example: If your damages total $10,500.00 and your deductible is $1000,00 the insurance company will give you $9,500.00 and you will have to absorb the remaining $1000.00.
3. Request it all in writing | Make sure you receive any and all estimates of damage or destruction in writing. This provides you with proof of damage when it comes time to file the Wind/Hail insurance claim. Also be sure to request written estimates of repairs and/or replacement as well.
4. Sign nothing yet! | Before you sign anything, ask lots of questions, inform yourself, read the small print, and fully understand the document to be signed. You do not have to blindly accept the insurance company’s assessment of damage | get your own estimates in order to compare them with the insurance company’s estimates.
5. Gather all necessary information | Confirm with your insurance company the requirements for filing a Hail/Wind insurance claim. Below is the standard necessary information needed:
Date of loss
Type of claim (loss) i.e Hail
Location of damage
Detailed list of any injuries incurred
Full condition of home
Complete list of all damages
All estimates for repair or replacement
6. Keep everything | In order for your claim to be processed as smoothly as possible, call the insurance company as soon as possible, and keep all documents relating to the incident, no matter how insignificant they may seem. Do not get rid of anything until the insurance company has sent a representative to assess the damage.
Many insurance companies will pay for temporary housing should your home be so damaged that you cannot live in it. Call them, or refer to your documentation to find out whether this is a possible provision in your case.

Legacy Flat Roof's

flat roofA flat roof is a type of covering of a building. In contrast to the sloped form of a roof, a flat roof is horizontal or nearly horizontal. Materials that cover flat roofs typically allow the water to run off freely from a very slight inclination.
Traditionally flat roofs would use a tar and gravel based surface which, as long as there was no pooling of water, was sufficient to prevent penetration. However, these surfaces would tend to fail in colder climates, where ice dams and the like could block the flow of water. Similarly, they tend to be sensitive to sagging of the roof reversing the subtle grading of the surface.

Legacy Roofing EPDM Flat Roofs

Modern flat roofs tend to use a continuous membrane covering which can better resist pools of standing water. These membranes are applied as a continuous sheet where possible, though sealants and adhesives are available to allow for bonding multiple sheets and dealing with structures penetrating the roof surface. Far more expensive flat roof options include sealed metal roofsusing copper or tin. These are soldered interlocking systems of metal panels.
Flat roofs tend to be sensitive to human traffic. Anything which produces a crack or puncture in the surface can quite readily lead to leaks. In other words, this sort of roof has a major weakness to failure from subsequent work done on the roof – such as upgrading building HVAC systems and so forth. It is thus not generally advisable to use a flat roof as a living area unless steps are taken to protect the roofing membrane from those using the area, for example, by building a wooden deck over the surface or using paving stones or similar materials to protect the roof membrane. It is not advisable in general to have living areas directly under such a roof either, due to the high likelihood of eventual leakage.

Call Legacy for a Free Flat Roof Estimate

One of the more interesting (re)emerging methods of protecting the roofing membrane is to use a layer of topsoil and grasses. Care should be taken not to plant anything the roots of which will penetrate the membrane surface. The green roof interestingly enough, tends to trap moisture on the roof, but keeps it up in the soil and plants, rather than having it pool down on the membrane surface.

How to Control Roof Leaks

roof leaksTreat a leaking roof as an emergency, because it can wreak havoc in your house in a very short time. Attend to any signs of a roof leak, such as water entry, stains or mold, immediately to limit damage. Locate the leak from inside and then take steps to control the damage until you can have a suitable outside inspection and repair done.

Control Roof Leaks

Read about Insurance Claims

Locate the leak from inside

  1. The first and perhaps most obvious place to look for a roof leak is directly above the leak in a ceiling or exterior wall. Use a flashlight to inspect the attic floor over the leak while it’s raining. Look for standing water, water stains, mold, wet insulation or other exposed insulation.
  2. Examine the underside of the roof for wetness or mold around points of penetration (plumbing vents, chimneys), wherever different roof planes intersect (valleys) and near dormers. These symptoms indicate holes in the flashing or faulty flashing installation.
  3. A leak away from such locations suggests a problem in the roofing material. Keep in mind that water may travel sideways before passing through a joint in the roof sheathing, and may travel in a horizontal joint before falling on the floor or ceiling.
  4. Take measurements from points inside that you can also locate from outside. Measure down from a ridge and horizontally from the center of a valley or sidewall; or measure distances from a chimney or other point of penetration.
  5. If your ceiling is attached to roof rafters, as would be the case for a cathedral ceiling, all you can do from inside is take the measurements that will help you locate the leak externally, and attempt to control the damage internally.

Control the damage

  1. Water can travel on the underside of sheathing or down roof rafters before dropping off in one or more places. To control where it falls, tack a piece of string into the stream of water and let it hang into a bucket. The water will tend to follow the string.
  2. Poke or drill a hole in your ceiling to let the water through. This technique prevents the water from spreading across the top of the ceiling to other areas; it prevents the ceiling from becoming saturated, eliminating the chance of collapse and often the need for replacement; and it allows you to collect water from below using the string-and-bucket method.

Locate the leak from outside

  1. Using any measurements or other information you gathered indoors, make your initial outdoor observations from a ladder and/or using binoculars. Do not walk on a pitched roof during rain or as long as the roof is wet. A wood roof is particularly treacherous.
  2. Look for leaves and other debris slowing the natural downward flow of water, as often happens in valleys and adjacent to or above any roof penetration or dormer. If there is snow on the roof, an ice dam may have formed at the roof’s lower edge, causing water to back up under overlapping layers of roofing materials. Remove the obstruction if you can get to it safely.
  3. If or when you can safely get close enough, examine metal flashings for corrosion or open joints where they connect to a chimney or other roof penetration. You can temporarily patch metal flashings, but replacement is the only permanent solution. Typically, you can replace cracked or dried-out rubber gaskets on plumbing vents.
  4. Pay particular attention to any areas already covered with black flashing cement; these indicate locations of previously repaired leaks. Look for pinholes or cracks, which often occur as the material ages. Make temporary repairs by applying flashing cement with a putty knife.
  5. If or when you can safely get close enough, inspect attachment points for any antenna, satellite dish or other object screwed or nailed into the roof. A dab of roof flashing in good condition should cover each fastener. The best solution is to avoid mounting anything on your roof in the first place.
  6. If you determined from inside that your leak is midroof and therefore not related to flashing, look for damaged or missing asphalt shingles. On wood roofs, look for cracked or badly cupped or warped shingles or shakes. Look for joints in one course that fall less than 11/2 inches (4 cm) to the left or right of a joint in the course below. Flat or nearly flat roofs generally require very close inspection to locate damaged or badly worn areas.
