Ballast Removal

vacuum truck ballast rock removal

Ballasted roofing systems on industrial buildings are simple and quick to install.  

The gravel (known as ballast) protects the waterproof membrane underneath from the blistering and cracking damage from the sun. The ballast helps weigh down the membrane to keep it in place. And, it makes the roof more energy-efficient.

Some of these roofs have lasted 40-50 years and longer. If you ever have a leak develop or when the roof finally needs replacing, of course the ballast has to come off first.

How do you get the ballast off the roof and what do you do with it?

We have the solution.

We use our vacuum trucks to vacuum the ballast off the roof and then either save it for you to put back on the roof or dispose of the ballast for you.

Service Includes:

We will get the ballast off your roof quickly and safely. With one of the most advanced vacuum trucks anywhere in the world, we can remove 1000s of SF of ballast from an industrial roof in a day.

Whether you plan to reapply the ballast or not, Blackwell’s has it covered. We will either dispose of the ballast for you or keep it until it can be reapplied to your roof after repairs or maintenance take place.
