Ballasted roofing systems on industrial buildings are simple and quick to install, and a big headache if you have a roof leak or are replacing the roof.
So why put ballast on a flat roof anyway?
There are several reasons. Besides being easy 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. That’s the headache for you. 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 or dispose of the ballast for you.
We will get the ballast off your roof quickly and safely.
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.
