Ask About Our Lifetime Warranty

As authorized installers, we are able to provide you with warranties and benefits that very few contractors can offer. In order to maintain our authorizations, we must continually attend thorough training courses and produce a higher standard of work.

Does Your Roof Need Professional Help?

If you have damage to your roof, our experienced and trained estimators take a responsible and thorough approach to assess your roof condition. Whether you simply need the roof repaired or need a full replacement, ABD will offer an appropriate solution to restore your roof to new again!

Your roof is the most important element of protecting your home or business. A leaking roof can easily cause hundreds or thousands of dollars in damage if it isn’t dealt with quickly and correctly. Please feel free to call with any questions and request a free quote. We look forward to doing business with you.


Costly Low Bid Mistakes

Year after year, we receive calls from people who have had their roof replaced within the last 1-5 years and are experiencing premature roof failures. Poor installation, coupled with the cheapest roofing materials, seems to be the trend with these failures. What we find are the lowest bid and the quickest start date are all too often the biggest deciding factors in many of these cases. Along with poor installation, the original contractor refuses to warranty the work, or worse yet, is nowhere to be found or out of business.

Picking the right company for the job isn’t always about the lowest price. Although we try to be as competitive as possible, we can’t always be the cheapest. Trying to compete in pricing with the contractor that doesn’t warranty its work or take care of its customers can be difficult.

Always keep in mind the big picture. Your roof is a long-term investment, meant to last 30-50 years. Roofs not only have to look good, but they have to function properly too.

Flat Roof Construction and Repair

Flat roof single ply membrane

Single-Ply Membrane

Single-ply roofing systems consist of a single layer of high-tech roofing material to cover your roof. Materials used include:

  • EPDM: an elastomeric rubber roofing membrane
  • TPO: a high-quality, reinforced membrane with superior tear strength and stability

Your membrane will be attached in one of three ways:

  • Fully Adhered System: a butyl-based adhesive that firmly secures the membrane to the substrate
  • Mechanically Attached System: special fastening plates are placed in various patterns based on building height, geographic locale, deck type, and building usage
  • Ballasted System: loose gravel or interlocking pavers keep the membrane in place
