EPDM REPAIR

Two sections of this roof have persistent leaks into the home.  Replacing both sections with new decking and EPDM to stop leaks and repair roof:

  • EPDM stands for: ethylene propylene diene monomer.  This is an “M” class rubber, which has many applications.  Here, it has been used on a flat roof, which we will remove sections of to fix a leak and instal new EPDM.
    Rotted decking

    Original rotted decking

    Old material removal.  Isolating the areas that are damaged and fully removing each section of the leak under the roof, including the decking.

Replacing rotted decking underneath both sections of the roof to ensure the leak is entirely gone. (This is the first section).

Here, you can see the new black rubber roofing material is now in place!

Both sections are tightly sealed off with brand new materials.  No more leaks into the home!  If you or anyone you know has a new leak or a leak that has persisted into their home for years and they can’t find the source, give XL Home Improvements a call immediately!  We have helped hundreds of home owners stop thousands of leaks and we won’t stop until the problem is properly resolved!  Check out our testimonial page!

ROOFING, SIDING, CAPPING, GUTTERS

 

XL Sign1

XL Home Improvements was called in to install roofing and siding on a breezeway and garage. We had to try and match, as best as possible, the siding on the main house.  Also fix and finish some areas that a previous owner had attempted on his own.

GARAGE ROOF

GARAGE ROOF REPLACE
XL Sign1

This project was a large garage roof that had very old shingles that were past their serviceable life. XL Home Improvements removed the old roofing down to the deck. Replaced any bad wood as necessary, and installed a new roof using 30lb Roofing Felt and Certainteed Landmark Lifetime Shingles. ( Color is Burnt Sienna )
