REPAIR VS REPLACE
What happens when your flat roof begins to leak? You might discover a stain on ceiling one fine morning. This will surely prompt you to make a hurried call to repairing service. Refurbishing involves multiple steps- first, patching up and then, fixing up the water soaked insulation, rafters and roof deck. Lastly, the stain on the ceiling must receive fresh coat of painting.
