CLARENCE, N.Y. – Jandrex LLC recently announced the launch of the Mini Breach X, a new and unique product for temporarily sealing roof membrane punctures, rips, and tears, and other breaches found during inspections, maintenance work, and new roof installs, and flagging these breaches for easy discovery by post-inspection repair workers.

Currently, flat roofs typically require annual inspections, maintenance, and repairs. These roof inspections can be conducted by certified manufacture representatives, owner representatives, mechanical contractors, or roofing contractors. The process typically begins with an inspection of the roof. Inspections include identifying breaches in the membrane caused by foreign objects such as debris, hardware, and traffic from owners and maintenance personnel, or membrane seam failure. These breaches often take on water that is shed from the roof surface which may cause costly damage inside the building or other structure. These breaches are often extremely small; typically less than a few inches in length or diameter. And, these breaches can be located anywhere on a massive roof which could be millions of square feet in size. The standard practice by inspectors is to “flag” these minor breaches once they have been located so they can be found by post-inspection repair workers who will then seal the breach. The typical “flagging” technique is to place a circle around each breach with a pen or permanent marker; then, in some cases, plot each breach on a roof-plan or drawing. This practice is flawed in at least four ways.
