A roof replacement is the most extensive process of roofing and is a long-term solution. Replacement is necessary when a roofing system is damaged beyond repair or restoration. The majority of roofs in this region that fail prematurely or leak are due to a lack of preventive maintenance. If properly maintained, new roofs can last 20 years or more.

Roof systems are susceptible to severe weathering, constant UV exposure, expansion and contraction as well as abuse caused by people. Even on a brand new roof, it is not uncommon for leaks to develop within a short period as a result of these causes. In addition, exposure to pollutants like grease and animal fats as well as strong winds, hail, and long-continued rains, may result in additional roof system degradation. Roof leaks left unattended allow moisture to enter the assembly and cause deterioration of the roof decking and major damage to the building’s interior. Just like your car, maintenance is required to keep everything running and operating properly. Roof maintenance will also ensure that your warranty stays in full effect.
LoveRain Roof Co. is one of Austin’s select CMP contractors (Certified Maintenance Professionals) that offers building owners and property managers scheduled roof inspections and tailored maintenance programs to ensure the performance of your existing roof system, which ultimately reduces the costs incurred for premature roof replacement.

Once the old roof has been removed and we have replaced any damaged plywood, the next step is for us to lay down new roofing felt (also called roofing paper or tar paper). We install ice and water shields in the valleys of your roof for extra protection against these harsh elements. Since chimneys are one of the most common areas that leak on a roof, we’ll install ice and water shield around these areas as well for extra protection to prevent future issues.
Roof coatings are liquid-applied roof systems that when used in the correct order and over correctly prepared surfaces, cure to a thick, seamless, rubberized membrane that encapsulates the entire roof surface. We begin with the preparation stage which includes making minor repairs to the existing roof and adding screws and fasteners where needed. The entire roof surface is then washed to sure all oxidation, grease, pollutants, and debris are removed. Once the surface is clean, dry, and tight, we begin the flashing work around all the seams, screws, pipes, ac units, and any other vents that penetrate the roof. Upon completion of the flashing work, we begin the application of a base coat. Once cured, we come back and apply the topcoat. The finished product is a highly reflective, energy-star-rated roof that forms a monolithic barrier and protects from UV, Rain, and any biological growth. It’s our most popular system.
TPO membranes are made with a co-polymerized rubber that allows them greater flexibility in cold climates. This membrane is best recognized for having the benefits of EPDM and PVC systems, at a more economical cost. TPO membranes are white and highly reflective, making them an excellent choice for those looking to reduce energy costs. In addition to being ENERGY STAR rated, TPO’s recyclability makes it an environmentally conscious system. Additionally, TPO roofs are durable and resist dirt, bacteria, and debris build-up making them highly resistant to tears, punctures, and impact damage.
PVC was first installed in the early 1960s, PVC was the industry’s answer to the oil crisis, as it was the first membrane to contain half of the fossil fuels normally used in system manufacturing. Engineers discovered that adding additional solid plasticizers to the PVC membrane allowed for additional weatherability and flexibility, where the membrane alone would be more susceptible to seasonal climate changes. To this day, PVC membranes remain incredibly versatile, chemical resistant and are highly recommended for roof-over projects. They are available in a variety of colors, thicknesses, widths, and reinforcements, making them an excellent option for almost any roofing project.

There are four types of roofing asphalt. Each type is created by heating and blowing with oxygen. The longer the process the higher the melt-point of the asphalt. Therefore, Type I asphalt has characteristics closest to coal tar and can only be used on dead-level surfaces. Type II is considered flat and can be applied to surfaces up to 1/4 in 12 slopes. Type III is considered to be “steep” asphalt but is limited to slopes up to 2 in 12, and Type IV is “special steep”. The drawback is, the longer it is processed, the shorter the life. Dead level roofs where Type I asphalt was used as the flood and gravel adhesive has performed nearly as well as Coal Tar. Asphalt roofs are also sustainable by restoring the life cycle by making repairs and re-coating with compatible products. The process can be repeated as necessary at significant cost savings with very little impact on the environment.
