August 2015

The Tampa area has been experiencing higher than normal rainfall over the past 2-3 weeks. In fact, August 4th marked the 14th consecutive day of measurable rainfall. During the past week, a stationary frontal boundary was the main culprit for the heavy rain. Recently, though an area of low pressure in the Gulf of Mexico has bombarded Florida's Gulf Coast exasperating the already soaked city. In addition to the 3-6 inches of rain over the past weekend, 2-3 inches fell Sunday night into Monday as this low dipped south into Tampa. As of August 3rd, Tampa exceeded its normal August rainfall of 7.77 inches, with greater than 8 inches falling in the first three days of the month. Some areas were locally higher, including Tarpon Springs, which received 18.5 inches of rain over the last 10 days!
Our Service Department has been besieged by a record number of service calls. We are starting earlier and working later to accommodate all of our clients needs and have added extra trucks and qualified technicians to help us work through this backlog. WE ARE HERE FOR YOU. Leak reports can be called in to our main number in Tampa at 813-626-7717, and 239-344-8734 for Ft. Myers and Ft. Lauderdale.

Roof Repairs 101
 
Sustainability of roofing systems requires that the systems be repairable. Any roof system can be punctured if the impact is great enough. Repair materials need to be compatible with the roof system in place. This requires the building manager to know what's over head.
 
Commercial (low-slope) roof systems can be classified as:
 
· Bituminous built-up, using asphalt or coal tar pitch
 
· Bituminous polymer-modified systems
 
· Sprayed-in-place polyurethane foam with coating
 
· Single-ply non-bituminous
 
· Weldable thermoplastics
 
· Non-weldable elastomeric
 
· Metal roof systems
 
Proper repair requires that you know what roof system is in place so that you use the appropriate materials.
