Winter damage to slate roof

Bryn Mawr Road Porch Undergoes Restoration
 
Background
 
The owners of this Bryn Mawr Road home in northern Baltimore city wanted to restore the walk out porch on the side of their home. The walk out porch had become unusable as a result of the failing roof surface and unsafe railing.  The homeowner wanted to use the porch as it overlooks their garden. They called Thomson Remodeling Company to look at the project.  Our inspection revealed that the roofing material had failed, mostly around the post penetrations for the wooden railing. The built-in gutter had been leaking and rotted the soffit, fascia and crown molding. Structurally, one of the hip rafters was sagging and many of the rafter ends were rotted away.  Confounding the problem was the fact that the drainage on the flat roof was very poor

Walkable porch roofs are a common feature of local homes. Usually, doors off a second floor bedroom will lead out onto a porch roof with a railing. These roofs are great features but when they start to leak, they can be major headaches. Problems arrise when penetrations around railing posts begin to leak or flashing against the house. Often, a built-in gutter will leak causing the beam below to rot away. Historically, canvass coated with linsead oil often covered these porches and choices for roofing surfaces were very limited. Tar and rubber are a problem where people have acccess and can walk on the surface. If you walk on a tar roof and then walk back into the house, the flooring will get stained, likewise with rubber. The other problem with rubber is that it will not withstand furniture or frequent foot traffic. 

A solution to these problems is a walkable vinyl membrane like Duradek, which can withstand foot traffic, furniture and wont stain carpets from foot traffic. The problem of post penetrations can be solved by installing posts with flat plates that can be bolted to the floor. Give us a call at (410) 889-7391 and see if we can't help solve your walk-out porch problems. For non-walkable flat porch roofs, we can install TPO membrane (thermoplastic polyolefin), which is a great alternative to roll and rubber roofing.
