Hassle-free Commercial Roofing Replacement
There are several reasons why it might be time to do a complete commercial roof replacement. First, commercial roofs don’t often last as long as residential roofs. Depending on the roofing material used, they may last only 10 years or as long as 40. So, one of the main reasons you need a roof replacement is because it’s aged past its intended lifespan. As a roof ages, it loses integrity and becomes more susceptible to leaks and ponding water. Thankfully, we know how to determine if you need a repair or a replacement.
Repairs can buy you time, but if our inspection shows that a replacement is necessary, trust us that we will come up with a custom plan fit just for you. Trust us when we say that repairs on an aging, leaking roof can put a band aid on the situation, but a brand-new roof replacement from Roofworks Roofing & Solar means years of longevity and worry-free maintenance.
While we’re at it, we will also replace any flashing, underlayment, or any other roofing elements that need repairs. We may even recommend a better material based on what we see upon our thorough inspection. We’ve dealt with many instances where a roof warrants a complete replacement rather than a simple repair, and our recommendation can save you both time and money in the long run.
Worry-free Commercial Roof Repair
There are several repairs you may require to get your commercial roof back in the shape it once was. Ponding water is a big one, and this can be caused by a sagging or aging roof. The repair for this would be re-laying the roof materials in that area to re-seal the area and ensure there is no water damage or chance for leaks.
We can also repair flashing, peeling or loose roofing, and re-seal rubber roofs to provide a safe, watertight seal. We’ve dealt with many instances where a roof warrants a simple repair rather than a total replacement, which can save you time, money and is the more environmentally friendly option.
Commercial buildings often get roof coatings applied to them. These coatings provide benefits like resistance to abrasion, UV light reflectivity, additional water resistance, and more. They are especially popular on flat-roofed buildings that would otherwise wear out quickly under typical use.
Roof sealant is also popular on commercial buildings. Flat roofing materials are more likely to spring leaks than shingles, and even worse, it can be all but impossible to tell just where a leak is coming from. Roof sealant can stop the leak and keep the roof useful until it is time to redo the entire thing.
