New flat roof question


#1

Does the edge of this flat roof look correctly done?


#2

Looks like coated spray foam.
Yes the bottom edges need extra.
And that is a very flat roof holding a little water.

Ive never done spray foam.
But i respect it and it does well if you maintain it By keeping it coated.


#3

Sorry, I should have provided more details - this is a torch down roof covered with a kind of silver paint. From the ground the edge looks pretty rough and I would have expected a piece of metal trim or something to make it look more finished.


#4

It is supposed to have a metal edge.


#5

Completely wrong, but can be fixed. Edge needs to be cut back, metal edge installed, primed, then stripped in with modified. Honestly I would take a look at how they did the rest of the details.


#6

Ugh, in my mind, i would never imagine someone just folding the torch over on an outside edge.
I couldnt understand why that bottom edge detail was rounded
Never have i seen anyone do that before.
Highly dangerous and Pretty ugly.

I wouldnt have the same company fix it.
I am not sure i would do anything to it.
Im afraid that when they try to re-work it
You now have a backwards seam
And this roof holds some water.
Im afraid it could be a disaster.
I would leave it as is.

Can you still strip in a piece around the edges after aluminium coating was installed? I’ve never tried.


#8

Was hard to see in pictures that it’s already silver coated, would have to clean or burn coating off first.


#9

I don’t know of anything that cleans aluminum coating off, I burn it off with my torch.


#10

Cleaning it off would be the more politically correct osha approved term for burning it off.


#11

Thank you all for your replies. Could you explain what advantages a correctly built roof would have over this one?

Bending the modified over the edge and sticking it to the gutter is causing a hump witch is holding water. Eventually it will become unstuck from the gutter, then you will have an unsecured edge. Modified is not designed to be bent 90 degrees, a bend that tight will cause it to crack and fail prematurely.
