Flat roofs or low sloped roofs are frequently covered with a PVC or EPDM (ethylene propylene diene monomer) rubber membrane. This type of roofing has proved itself in New Zealand and has been used for well over 25 years.
Modern EPDM membranes are very durable and resistant to UV, ozone and weathering. They are pliable and stretch with movement of the roof structure.
With age though, membrane roofs need to be maintained and may need repairs. Over time cracks and tears can occur and where water does penetrate unchecked, considerable damage can occur to the roof structure resulting in more expensive repairs.
Damage sections of the roof membrane or the entire roof membrane can be replaced. With approved paint systems, the roof can be re-sealed and recoated. At HomeSmart Roofing we have achieved excellent results on flat or membrane roofs.
Like other roofs types, membrane roofs need to be regularly checked for damage and leaks and need to be maintained.
We advise to check membrane roofs frequently (at least every three years) so that any cracks, tears or leaks can be addressed before damage to the roof structure occurs.
After maintenance and repairs, membrane roofs can be painted and re-surfaced to look like new and to give a lasting finish.

Preparation and Repairs
All tiles including ridges and barges are checked for cracks/chips and replaced if required. Pointing will be replaced with Shieldcoats flexible pointing system. Valleys are inspected then repaired or replaced as needed.
Your roof will be thoroughly cleaned to remove all dirt, loose and flaking paint.
We will then apply a coating to seal any bare and porous areas and to wet out old chalking paint to ensure the adhesion of our coating system.
Two coats of our ultra premium quality 100% acrylic roof paint will then be applied. Roofbond Membrane coating will be tinted to a colour of your choice and will protect your roof for years to come.
When it comes to home maintenance, we recommend you start from the top down.
Not checking your roof can lead to damage to the roof structure, the insulation and the ceiling.
