Mike and Sherri W. of Machesney Park, IL gave My-Pros a call when an existing roof leak caused the drywall in their kitchen ceiling to collapse. To stop the immediate water damage inside of the home, our team did an emergency tarping on top of the roof. Since this was a flat roof, it presented a unique challenge to keep the water out from under the tarp. Once the rain had stopped, we recommended a mitigation company to go out and dry the property before we could replace the roof.
Once the home was completely dry, our crew got to work tearing off the existing roof. They replaced the rotten plywood as well as the chimney framing. Our team then installed a torch down two-ply modified bitumen roof. We then repaired the drywall inside of the kitchen as well as opening up the ceiling in the living room so that the homeowner could install a ceiling fan. This took our crew two days to tear off, replace the roof, and clean up.
