Commercial ROOFING Overview
When you own a business, one of your most important investments is the building that houses your local operations. It’s where your employees convene every day, it’s what keeps your equipment safe, and it’s the heart of your business operations. So how do you protect that investment and everything it contains? By having a strong, reliable, and well-built roof. Your roof is what keeps out the elements and keeps in the important things, like heat and air conditioning.
At Werner Roofing, we have more than 20 years experience in commercial roofing, and are available to help with any commercial roofing project you may have.
Get a Free Roof Inspection
How do you know when it’s time for a new roof?
The only way to be sure of your commercial roof’s current condition is to have a licensed professional personally inspect it. Werner Roofing is proud to offer free roof inspections for every client, so you can be sure of your roof’s condition.
Every Werner Roofing inspection comes complete with our promise: “We won’t recommend or sell a roof replacement unless it’s necessary.”
What you need to know
Commercial roofing is much different than private home roofing. It takes more specialized work to install, requires a different style of maintenance, is usually installed on much larger buildings, and needs more frequent inspections. So how do you know what to expect from your commercial roof, and how can you make sure it stays in prime condition for as long as you need it?
Your commercial Roofing is Different
Though you may have already gone through the process of installing a roof on your home, it’s important to remember that a commercial roof is much different than the one you have on your house. The maintenance strategies that you apply at home won’t be the same as the maintenance strategies that your flat, commercial roof will require. Expect things to go a little differently when installing your commercial roof, and make sure you choose a certified, reputable roofer to work on the project and provide you with quality advice.
It’s a good idea to talk to your trusted contractor about what type of material is right for your commercial roof. Since there are so many options, your roofer is likely to know what options will be the best for your business and your budget. That said, you should ensure that whatever materials you choose are certified for commercial roofing.
Certified materials are backed by their manufacturer’s quality reputation, will have a longer warranty, and are likely to be long-lasting, top-of-the-line materials. The best way to protect your assets is to have a durable commercial roof that can withstand any weather event for years to come.
Because your commercial roof is so different from a typical home roof, the solutions to leaks and other minor issues will also require different approach.
A typical asphalt shingle roof can simply have shingles replaced and holes patched, but a leak in a commercial roof is often a more complicated fix. Depending on the severity of the leak, an area patch may resolve it or you may need to re-apply a weather coating to the entire roof. Generally, leaks in commercial roofs indicate potentially larger problems and require more in-depth solutions.
More Frequent Maintenance
Since any problems with commercial roofs can’t really be seen from the outside, you should have yours inspected at least once, if not twice a year. Don’t wait until you see damage on the inside, because at that point repairs will be very costly and could require you to replace your roof.
It’s also a good idea to get your roof checked out after any severe storms. The only real way to inspect a commercial roof for damage is to get up there, so make sure you have a trusted roofer to perform these inspections for you.
Check the Gutters
Commercial roofs are just like all other roofs in one very significant way: they have gutters, too. Unfortunately, gutter maintenance tends to be most people’s least favorite task, but it is important that you clean the gutters on your commercial building regularly. If not, leaves and other debris can get build up, filling up your gutters, and stopping them from properly directing water to downspouts and away from the siding and foundation of your building.
If you don’t want to clean the gutters yourself, or if your building is too tall for you to safely do so, don’t hesitate to call a professional. That way you avoid the hassle and protect your commercial roof.
