Some roofing systems can be particularly tricky to repair. It is important to contact a roofing professional to guarantee repairs are quick and effective. There are many homes and office buildings that feature asphalt-based roofing systems. These built-up roof systems can be smooth or have a gravel surface. Often the gravel surface is added for extra protection from weathering. If your asphalt roof begins to wear, you will notice cracks and splits around the edges of the roof, in the flashings, and in the roof field. When you see any signs of wear on your asphalt roof, it is time to make repairs in order to maximize the life of your roof and protect your home or office building. For asphalt roofing repairs, call Accent Roofing of Amarillo as soon as you see cracking or experience leaking. Prompt repairs of your asphalt roofing will help your roofing system last longer.  

The first thing Accent Roofing will do is confirm your roof type. This will guarantee the correct roofing materials are used to complete the repair. Some roofing materials are incompatible and cause roofing to wear down more quickly. Next, our staff will assess the damage to your roof. We will be sure repairs can be made quickly and correctly. In addition, we will make sure that repairs will be effective in protecting your home or office from further damage.  

After the damage has been assessed, Accent Roofing will clean the surface of your asphalt roof. Cleaning the roof will ensure that the patch will adhere correctly to the roofing surface instead of dirt and stone embedded in the roof. If the roof is covered with gravel, the cleaning process will be a bit trickier. The gravel will need to be removed from the area of repair. Patching applied without the gravel being removed could allow water to flow under the patch. The leak would continue and cause further damage. Roofing specialists will scrape the gravel from the repair area and beyond. After the gravel is removed, dust will be swept away to completely clear the membrane. Asphalt repair materials will not stick through dust and dirt.   

Once the asphalt repair area is cleared of dust, debris, and moisture, a liquid primer is applied to the asphalt surface using a brush or roller. The primer will be allowed to dry, preparing the roof surface for the patch. Applying a primer will help the repair bind itself to the roof and increase the performance of the repair. Two layers of asphalt patching are used to repair worn and leaking sections of the roof. The asphalt repair will be secured using asphalt flashing cement. Finally, a finish coat of asphalt mastic will be applied to the roof. If the asphalt roof is covered with gravel, it will be replaced over the repair area.
