Commercial Roofing

If you’re in the market for commercial roofing, then you know it’s a big deal to choose the correct one

slide3

Your commercial roof is an investment that improves property values and one that will last for many years to come

slide4

The more you learn about commercial roofing before making your decisions, the better the outcome

all commercial roofs are constructed the same way
All commercial roofs are constructed the same way

Myth #1

Different construction methods are used depending on the type of roof designed and the materials that are chosen for the job. There’s a lot to learn about commercial roofing, which is why it’s so important to choose a reputable company and do your research before you commit to anything

There’s no need to worry about wrinkles in the membrane of a new roof because they won’t leak if they’re sealed

Myth #2

While wrinkles may not pose an immediate problem, they can create serious problems for your roof later on. In fact, roofing manufacturers like for them to be repaired immediately during the installation process, and even set specific instructions for how they are to be repaired

you ll get more waterproofing for your money with a thick application of asphalt
You’ll get more waterproofing for your money with a thick application of asphalt

Myth #3

An overly thin application of asphalt is bad for your new commercial roofing, but did you know that having too thick of an application is just as bad?

if you install a metal roof you won t have to worry about maintenance
If you install a metal roof, you won’t have to worry about maintenance

Myth #4

Metal commercial roofing requires very little maintenance, giving it a huge boost in popularity. However, this doesn’t mean that metal roofs have no need for maintenance at all! Metal roofing should still be regularly inspected for problems like deterioration, backed-out fasteners, corrosion, and missing closures

you don t have to inspect your new roof more than once a year if you don t feel like it
You don’t have to inspect your new roof more than once a year if you don’t feel like it

Myth #5

Inspecting your new roof may not sound like something that has to be done on a specific schedule, but depending on your warranty, it could be extremely important! If you take a moment to read through your warranty, you’ll probably notice a specification for regular inspections in the maintenance requirements

slide10
After your new roof is installed, you have to always use the same roofer for maintenance and repairs, otherwise you’ll void your warranty

Myth #6

This is another myth that can actually be true sometimes, but it usually depends on who provides your warranty. If your warranty is provided by the roofer, then you might be required to use that roofing company or risk voiding your warranty

it s totally fine for a roofing contractor to re cover a roof that has wet insulation
It’s totally fine for a roofing contractor to re-cover a roof that has wet insulation

Myth #7

Not only does insulation fail to insulate when it’s wet, it causes deterioration and blisters around it. Unless you want to risk losing your entire roof during the next storm, damp insulation should always be removed before the roof is re-covered
