Causes Of Water Damage

We have experience with water damage from a plethora of sources:

  • Malfunctioning appliances – washing machines, dishwashers, sinks, toilets, fridges, showers/baths, water heaters, etc.
  • Leaky/frozen/broken pipes due to water pressure or faulty setup
  • Backed up sewer/septic lines
  • Heavy precipitation or severe storms
  • Leaky roofs
  • Overburdened rivers, streams, flooding lakes, etc.

While some leaks may not present an immediate problem, over time, ever-present damp can cause associated issues such as mold. Many pipes or small leaks are hidden behind walls or in the attic for months before being discovered. On the other hand, some large leaks can happen quickly, and even if caught right away, cause massive damages almost immediately.

Mold Removal, Ann Arbor, MI

If you live in Ann Arbor, MI, or any of the surrounding communities, then you know that high humidity is not uncommon to our area. Neither are harsh summer storms. Unfortunately, both of those conditions have one thing in common – they can contribute to creating the perfect conditions for mold to grow.

If you have or suspect you may have mold growing in your roof or elsewhere in your commercial building structure, don’t delay – call the experts at Incore Restoration Group today. Mold is a significant health hazard that should be dealt with immediately. The team at Incore Restoration Group Incore is IICRC (Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification)-certified, with experience in water restoration, applied structural drying, and applied microbial remediation. Call us today at (866) 685-0009 to see how we can help you.

Mold Removal Process

We at Incore Restoration Group follow a standard procedure in every mold removal project we undertake.

  1. Locate and diagnose mold growth. By the time a client sees mold or suspects something, it’s usually a bigger problem than what’s visible. Mold can invade walls and attics for a long time before being discovered. Our job as mold removal experts is to detect every single patch and spore and diagnose the class of mold (from benign to potential for serious health hazard), as well as the best method for remediation.

We also locate the contributing factors – be it poor ventilation or leaks – and suggest appropriate repairs to treat the source of the problem.

  1. Document. If your mold problem warrants insurance coverage, we take care to put together a comprehensive report, including photos, written descriptions, and more. This can be invaluable when filing insurance claims or dealing with warranties.
  1. Mold removal. Our goal during any mold removal job is to remove it as completely and quickly as possible, while exposing others to it as little as possible. We begin by repairing the source of the problem first, whether it be a leaky roof or poor air circulation. We then close off the areas contaminated by mold to isolate the spores to the affected areas. We remove the damaged materials and properly dispose of them, then clean the entire area before finally repairing and replacing the necessary structures.

The Incore Difference

At Incore Restoration Group, we pride ourselves on adhering to a high standard of principles. We believe we are successful because we refuse to compromise quality. We operate under the following values:

  • Safety – Every Incore employee is provided gear and tools to protect them from the potentially harmful effects of mold. Likewise, we take great care to educate building tenants or employees about the situation and remove them from harm’s way.

Mold Remediation, Ann Arbor, MI

Many people think a leaky roof is just a matter of a quick patch or small repair to fix a structural issue, but the truth is, it can present a number of associated problems, including the growth of mold, which can be hazardous to your health. And it doesn’t have to be a large leak to create the perfect conditions for mold to grow. Even a small drip can contribute to significant mold growth over time.

Incore Restoration Group is a IICRC (Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification)-certified full-service commercial roofing contractor in the Ann Arbor, MI, area. Among our services, we also offer mold removal and remediation. As one of Michigan’s premier disaster response companies, we are more than capable of diagnosing and repairing your mold problem. Call us to learn more at (866) 685-0009.

Detecting the Problem

The first step to fixing your problem permanently is finding the underlying cause. While some leaks are large and easy to detect, other leaks can be difficult to pinpoint; they may travel from the point of origination through your roofing material’s layers to finally present themselves at another spot on the underside of the roof.

There are many reasons why your roof may be leaking. The experienced professionals at Incore Restoration Group are qualified to identify and correct them:

  • Missing shingles – Shingles often blow off or are damaged by strong weather.
  • Improper installation of roofing structures – Joints, skylights, and flashing – all are prime points for leaks if improperly installed. Flashing is the term roofers use for the material used to cover joints that are susceptible to water seepage. These areas are vulnerable to cracks and decaying insulation.
  • Blocked drainage systems – Gutters clogged by debris or built-up ice can cause water to backup and penetrate areas that normally don’t have to deal with standing water.

By the time you see mold growing and begin to be affected by its spores, chances are its been there for quite some time, just like the leak that’s been keeping it moist and creating the perfect growing conditions. Following is a list of the most common signs your roof may be leaking:

  • Shingles that are not lying flat – peeling, curling, or missing
  • Roofing material that is not fully adhered – bubbling, cracked, etc.
  • Dark or discolored spots on the ceiling or walls (usually radiating out from a central point)
  • Water dripping through the ceiling or wall
  • Bubbling or crumbling plaster/drywall
  • Damp wood or insulation in the attic
  • Bubbling or peeling paint or other materials around skylights or windows set on the roof
  • Musty smell, overall decreased air quality

Hiring a certified roofing professional to find and repair the leak should be your first step toward fixing your mold problem. One of the benefits of working with Incore Restoration Group is that we do it all – we can identify and fix your leaky commercial roof, as well as remove the mold.

Rubber Roof Repair, Ann Arbor MI

Rubber is a wonderful, long-lasting option when it comes to your roof. Because rubber is less sensitive to the sun than many other materials, repairs may not be needed for up to 30 years or longer. However, as your rubber roof ages and withstands constant exposure to weather and other environmental factors, it may crack or leak. If you are in need of professional rubber roof repair services in Ann Arbor, Michigan, or the surrounding areas, Incore Restoration Group is your contractor.

Based in Michigan, Incore Restoration Group is a full-service restoration contractor with a strong focus on roofing. Our estimators have decades of experience and know the commercial roofing business inside and out. Call us at (866) 685-0009 today to learn more about our services or to get a free estimate for your commercial roofing needs.

How Do I Know If My Rubber Roof Needs Repairing?

If you’re not sure what condition your rubber roofing is in, it’s a good idea to do a quick visual inspection at least twice a year and following any major weather event. We recommend viewing your roof from the ground, first. Walking around the exterior of the building, keep an eye out for sagging, aging, or other signs of damage and take note.

Next, use a ladder to carefully climb up on the roof and take a closer look. Some things to note that may indicate an issue with a rubber roof include the following:

  • If you see gaps between seams
  • If you can see the undercoat or inner layers of the roofing
  • If you see grass or other vegetation growing anywhere on the roof
  • If you see water pooling or feel small dips as you walk over the roof
  • If you see holes or splits in the roofing surface
  • If the roofing looks wrinkled instead of stretched tight
  • If you see blisters where the roofing should be flat

Finally, if the building has an attic, consider looking for any signs of damage/leaking/etc. underneath the roof.

If you have any concerns about your rubber roof, don’t delay. Postponing roof repairs now can have major ramifications down the road — from leaks and mold to higher energy bills and pest infestations.

Once you’ve done a thorough visual inspection and written down any concerns you have, contact us at (866) 685-0009 for a free repair estimate. We know that issues can arise at anytime, so we are available to respond 24/7.

It’s as easy as calling us today at (866) 685-0009 to learn more about your roof coating options and to receive an estimate to update your existing roof.

Benefits of Reflective Roof Coating

One of the most beneficial factors of our roof coating systems is their reflectivity. At first glance, you may think the only benefit to rolling or spraying a reflective coating onto your roof would be a decrease in utility costs, but there are actually many more:

  • Increased longevity of your roof – Not only do our roof coatings cool your property down by reflecting a significant percentage of the sun’s rays, they can slow down the damage naturally caused by years of exposure to the sun.
  • Increased resistance to animal infestation and vegetative growth – Coating your roof can add an extra barrier against termites or other animals that tend to find purchase on or within a roof. A reflective roof coat will also discourage fungal growth across your roof.
  • Avoidance of demolition/full roof replacement – If your roof is in good condition but needs sprucing up, a coating may be just the ticket. Our premium roof coatings can be applied to virtually any surface, regardless of shape, material, or angle.
  • Overall decrease in regional temperature – In crowded suburbs or city blocks, traditional roofs can absorb heat and cumulatively raise the temperature of an entire locality. This, in turn, requires more energy output to cool down the temperature, leading to an increase in pollution. A reflective roof coating, even on a single building, can alleviate these problems.
  • Possible tax breaks – Because roof coatings are an energy efficient upgrade, they may qualify for tax breaks or other government-provided financial incentives. Check with your local utility company to see if they offer rebates.
  • Reduced utility bills – The Department of Energy reports that “standard or dark roofs can reach temperatures of 150°F or more in the summer sun. A cool roof under the same conditions could stay more than 50°F cooler and save energy and money by using less air conditioning.” A reflective roof coating directly translates into saved dollars in energy costs.

Adding a coating to your existing roof is a smart investment, and we’re excited to help you on your way to a better-looking, more efficient roof. Our dependable, helpful team members are waiting to talk to you at (866) 685-0009. Give us a call for free expertise and friendly service. With Incore Restoration Group’s help, your roof could be on its way to new levels of durability.

Metal Roof Repair, Ann Arbor MI

Do you own a building with a metal roof? If you do, you should know that due to their construction, metal roofs are prone to leaks along certain areas including seams, flashings, and rust spots. Metal roofs are put together in a unique way, and as a result, the options to repair a metal roof are also unique.

Incore Restoration Group is a Michigan-based, full-service roof restoration contractor, with lots of experience in metal roof repair. Our service team can help you evaluate your metal roof, estimate the cost to repair it, and get your roof in ship-shape in no time. Call us today at (866) 685-0009 for a no-cost estimation.

Costs Associated with Metal Roof Repair

The national average to repair a metal roof is about $1300. Individual jobs range from about a few hundred to several thousand. There are many factors to consider when pricing out a metal roof repair job. We’ve listed a few of them below. The friendly, knowledgeable professionals at Incore Restoration Group have decades of experience appraising jobs and repairing metal roofs. You can count on an honest, affordable experience with Incore Restoration Group. Call us at (866) 685-0009.

  • Size of the job – The overall cost of a metal roof repair job will vary greatly based on the size of the actual repair. Is it a single seam or are there multiple issues across the roof? The more repairs that are needed, the more materials will be required. The size of the roof should also be taken into account.
  • Underlying issues – Often, an evaluation of a metal roof with obvious external issues turns up additional, less evident repairs on closer inspection. For example, if a roof has been leaking for some time, the underlayment may need replacing. Gaps in the metal roof seams could lead to termite damage or animal infestation, requiring other steps to be taken before the metal roofing can be repaired.
  • Technicality of the job – Not all roofs are created equal. Roofs that are extremely steep (what we call pitch) or otherwise less accessible may require special equipment, increasing the overall cost of repairing your metal roof.
  • Metal roof material – There are many different types and styles of metal roofing, with different costs for repair and installation. Styles include standing seam, shingles or shakes, and tiles. Materials (from most affordable to most expensive) include aluminum, stainless steel, galvalume steel (carbon/iron steel coated with an alloy of aluminum and zinc), galvanized steel, corrugated steel, and copper. These come in many different coatings and colors.

From its founding, Incore Restoration Group has focused on excellent, efficient workmanship and fair estimating. Our employees have a strong background in roofing system certifications and can handle all types of roofing repairs and replacements. We would love to hear about all your metal roof concerns and help set your mind at ease at (866) 685-0009.

Flat Roof Repair, Ann Arbor MI

Michigan is known for its long, cold winters. If harsh conditions have damaged your flat roof, contact Incore Restoration Group at (866) 685-0009 today. Our qualified, capable professionals specialize in installing, repairing, and replacing roofs and are familiar with the unique challenges flat roofs present.

While flat roofs are generally more energy efficient than sloped roofs, they can pose some special problems. Flat roofs require a different approach than other roofs when it comes to maintenance and repair. With help and proper, timely care from Incore Restoration Group, your flat roof should last a long time and keep on operating efficiently.

Three Problems Common to Flat Roofs

  1. Because flat roofs have absolutely no slope, they also get almost no break from the sun throughout the course of the day. The sun’s rays can really damage your flat roof over time. Incore Restoration Group is well versed in repairing or updating your existing flat roof. Our certified employees can handle everything from fixing gaps and bubbles to adding a reflective coating your flat roof.
  2. Another issue flat roofs suffer from due to their lack of slope is pooling water. Standing water is bad for a roof for many reasons. Water that stays in one place over time can seep into small cracks, rips, or gaps, damaging the roof’s internal structures and shortening its life.

Standing water also supports algae, fungus, and other vegetation growth. The roots of grass or other plants can quickly penetrate your flat roof and the underlying layers, compromising the roof’s overall integrity. The qualified professionals at Incore Restoration Group can safely remove any plant patches and repair the corresponding spots in the proper manner.

  1. Flat roofs are susceptible to alligatoring. We’re not talking about the toothy reptiles you find down south – this is a phenomenon that occurs as your flat roof ages and the coating presents a pattern of cracks throughout.

Similar to alligatoring is blistering, where your flat roof gets pockets of air, like bubbles, between its layers. As these blisters fluctuate in size, your flat roof gets more and more stretched out

Incore Restoration Group is your flat roof repair expert for the state of Michigan. Call us today so we can fix your problems before they become overwhelming (866)685-0009.

Commercial Roofing, Ann Arbor MI

At first glance, it may seem that a roof is a roof, but a closer look will reveal that not all roofs are created equal; commercial roofs have some unique features and therefore require special knowledge when it comes to evaluating and resolving issues.

For example, whereas other roofs typically have few to no outstanding structures on top of them, commercial roofs can present many challenges in the form of smoke stacks, ventilation pipes, external equipment, etc. Often, the demands placed on commercial roofs are much more extensive. Many commercial roofs also double as storage, requiring that the roof be able to bear a heavier-than-normal load.

Having a contractor who knows how to deal with those special circumstances can make all the difference. Incore Restoration Group can efficiently handle all types of commercial roofing repairs and replacements. Call us today (866)685-0009 to experience firsthand our personal touch, attention to detail, and expertise in all areas concerned with commercial roofing.
