Have a rubber roof that is in need of maintenance and repair work? J.E. Dixon Roofing’s Maintenance Programs are designed to extend the serviceable life of roof systems. This is done by first removing any debris and examining the roof for items allowing water to enter the system that will potentially cause leaks in the future. This includes performing repairs as required at seams, flashing seams, sump drains, and to the membrane itself. Preventative maintenance greatly extended a roof's life. If you have maintained your rubber system and it is nearing the end of its life expectance, in some cases the membrane can be washed with proper solvents,then repaired and coated with an acrylic or silicone-based roof coating to extend the life.
