Standing Seam Metal Roof in Wayland, MA
The homeowner of this gambrel style roof house in Wayland, MA was having Ice Dams related roof leaks issues for years, and even after installing flat aluminum sheets along the roof edge, the problems did not go away, only now the sliding snow was also damaging the gutters. An aluminum standing seam metal roof was chosen for this relatively low slope roof, and a heavy duty snow retention rail system was installed to prevent the snow from sliding off the roof, which posed danger for people living in the house and would continue to destroy the gutters below – read the full description of this standing seam metal roof installation in Wayland, MA.
Flat Roof in Lowell, MA
An old rubber roof was installed incorrectly, and a membrane contraction caused the drip edge pull out on one roof section and roof-to-wall flashing pullout on another section of the roof. We replaced both sections, adding 4 inches of roofing insulation to improve thermal properties and reduce heat loss. Read a complete overview of this flat roofing project – Roofing Lowell, MA.

PVC Roof Repair in Bellingham, MA
In the pictures above, the roof is a 4 years old IB PVC roof installed by another company. The homeowner did not feel comfortable working with them again and called us to install two 8″ IB attic vents and IB U-flow drain. The original contractor did not install any roof ventilation and the drain was a simple membrane liner, which did not seal to the drain pipe and was leaking during heavy rains, due to water overflow.
PVC roofing is the longest lasting type of single ply flat roofing materials. The hot air welded seams keep the roof watertight, and membrane formulation prevents the material from curing, and maintains membrane welding qualities. Still, sometimes even PVC flat roofs leak – check out this PVC roof repair article and two old PVC roofs that we’ve repaired in Massachusetts and Connecticut.
Low Slope roof in Westminster, MA
Low slope roofing in New England is especially problematic for homeowners due to Ice Dams and wind driven water, and inability to ventilate them due to low roof pitch. Even the Ice and Water shield usually does not help to solve the roof leaks. This is where IB roofing membrane is perfect. With hot air welded seam, your roof has one single piece of roof covering, which eliminates any potential of roof leaks. If your roof is visible off the ground, IB Roof Systems has developed a special product for residential low slope roofing – IB Tradition, which is essentially an IB roof with an aesthetically pleasing look of asphalt shingles.
The low slope roof in Westminster, MA (above) and the three following roofs (Arlington, Hingham and Grafton MA, as well as two roofs in Andover, CT (below) all demonstrate how we solved the low slope roof leaks issues.

Metal Roof Repair (Classic Roof Oxford Shingles) in Burlington, MA
This roof was originally installed by Classic Metal Roofs of Stow, MA (the same company that we mention above, in the PVC roof repair in Bellingham, MA). When the homeowner needed to add a range-hood roof vent, to original contractor was very reluctant to help out, saying they would need to send out a salesmen first to estimate the cost, and then a whole roofing crew to install the vent. We came out (one roofer) and took care of this issue.
Rubber Roof Skylight Flashing Repair – Cambridge, MA

80-mil IB Flat Roof in Wallingford, CT
This 80-mil IB flat roof was installed in the summer of 2007, right before 4th of July. The homeowners had major roof leaks and were expecting friends and family over for the holiday, but did not want to have their stay spoiled by leaking roof. We had only a few days to get the main part of this project done. We had to tear off the old rolled asphalt roof, install new insulation, build a skylight curb, install the roof and flash 3 roof vents, a large masonry chimney, the skylight and all roof penetrations, as well as weld all seams. Everything was to be done in 3 days, as there was a major rainstorm coming on the fourth day and 4th of July right after. The homeowners also wanted the roof to be mostly done before the holiday – no construction site look on their roof, which was completely visible from the street.
Here are some more pictures of this roofing job in Wallingford, CT.
80-mil Flat Roof in Old Lyme, CT
This 80-mil white roof was installed in place of a leaking tar and gravel roof. We removed old roofing, replaced approximately 150 sq. ft. of rotten wood and rebuilt the framing on the sloped mansard section, as well as replaced the asphalts shingles roof above the flat roof. The mansard section recieved Steel Metal Shingles to improve the looks of the ground. More pictures of this flat roof in Old Lyme, CT.
Flat Roof with tapered insulation in Darien, CT
These elderly homeowners were having ponding water issues on their flat roof, and did not want to clean the snow off the roof any longer. We installed new IB Roof with Tapered insulation, which eliminated any ponding, and diverted all water to the gutters. We also installed new gutter guards to make this roof as low maintenance as possible.
Flat roof in Andover, CT – winter 2008
This low slope roof was leaking badly causing complete gutting of the two bedrooms below it, replacement of all roof decking and also hiring a mold removal contractor to clean the the mold / mildew which formed between roof rafters.
The roof was patched many times but kept on leaking. The homeowner and his buddies stripped the old roofing (to reduce installation costs), and covered the roof with a tarp which began to leak slowly after the first rain. We came out at our earliest availability, as the roof needed emergency replacement.
A new IB roof with special flat and low slope roof ridge ventilation system was installed – read a full review of this roofing project in Andover, CT.
