A building or structure needs waterproofing to keep the integrity of the structure together. Flat roofs in Arizona are generally constructed of fiberglass asphalt with a reflective coating on the top. Over time this coating by itself fails do to expansion or contraction, or improper installation techniques. When this happens the protective coating will begin to crack, chip, or even peel off. The material that we use on all of our roofs removes all the problems of flat roofs except that the roof will be made water proof by employing many methods of water proofing. If you have water stains that extend across ceilings or run down walls, the cause is probably a roof leak. Tracking down the leak is the hard part as many leaks on a flat roof can travel over a long distance and even after it makes its way into the house it may travel on top of the drywall for a good distance until it finds the path of least resistance. Fixing the problem is usually pretty easy. As a licensed, bonded, and insured roofing contractor in Tucson we do all this for you with a skilled team of professionals and best quality water proofing material available in the market at very affordable cost, thus keeping your biggest investment protected.
To protect the roof it should be made properly waterproof. There are numerous roof waterproofing systems available in the market; the choice of products will depend upon what kind of warranty and the existing surface of the current roofing material.

The most common phrase that I hear from many home owners here in Tucson is, “I hate flat roofs.” After we are finished with your roofing project you will think differently. You won’t have to worry about leaks or going up on the roof every time after it rains and sweep the water off. Standing water is a major problem with many flat roofs and some homeowners have even got so frustrated with very large puddles they install a pump on the roof to get rid of all the excess water that just sits on the roof because they have given up on getting it fixed either because they haven’t been able to find the right roofing contractor, or they think that they can’t afford. We will work with you the homeowner to eliminate large areas of standing water with a fiber reinforced self-leveling compound in the low areas, or if the area is really large we will build a cricket to channel the water off the roof, while keeping a very reasonable price. When a customer asks us how our roofing prices compare to those of other roofing contractor in Tucson I tell them that I’m not always the cheapest, and I’m not the most expensive but we will go above and beyond and we will give you the best value possible with the best warranty.
Scuppers are a very important part of a flat roof system that has parapet walls. It gives water a way to makes its way off the roof. Sometimes these scuppers have been improperly installed and don’t drain right and need to be lowered entirely, or in most cases just cutting all of the excess sealant that has been built up over time and opening the scupper back to its original size is the best way.
Membrane is the key to any long term roofing solution acting like rebar in concrete it gives the coating the strength it need to deal with extreme expansion and contraction we experience here Tucson, while remaining completely flexible and keeping out all of the heavy monsoon rains for years to come. It can be used to restore even the worst roofs back to their original state. Most roofing companies here in Arizona use a membrane system only in the low areas or in the bad spots. After many years here at Terra Nova Roofing Solutions and being able to see how long it last in the bad areas we decided that if it’s good enough for those areas its good enough to do the entire roof with to make a completely worry free roofing system.
A/C units on the roof pose many issues. Most units are set on 4x4" lumber and just set on the roof with no way to coat under the lumber and providing very little clearance under the unit itself if there is ever a problem. Another big issue is that a lot of times this area begins to hold water as it settles. Some roofing contractors will just move the blocks over and coat and then move them back, or worse coat the blocks to the roof. This will make the blocks rote out faster since the top of the wood is still exposed and water then becomes trapped. We opted to just simply eliminate this area all together by placing an enclosed metal pan that is completely water tight and that requires no maintenance under the unit in the future and the best part is that when it’s time to change out the A/C unit in the future they will be able to simply remove the old unit and install the new one without disturbing the roof.
Terra Nova Roofing Solutions also offers a silicone roof coating - An added upgrade that can be applied to the roof is the top of line flat roof coating system it is unlike any other roof coating. It is unaffected by UV rays and does not break down by water. Because of this the manufacture offers up to a 50 year warranty. No more maintenance coats, no worries of standing water wearing out the coating prematurely.
