Why should I maintain my roof?
We recommend you join one of our roof maintenance programs to receive a scheduled routine inspection of your roof system that will come with an inspection report, and minor maintenance is included. It also can extend your existing warranty and the lifespan of your roof and offers peace of mind. For more details, please visit the maintenance section on our website.
How do I know if I need a new roof?
It depends on the type of roof system, the quality of the products, the initial installation, and the climate your roof is in. Figuring out if a new roof system is needed may be a bit difficult to determine by the building owner alone. By contacting one of our roofing specialists, we can provide you with an inspection free of charge. The inspector will let you know if your roof is good, needs some repair/maintenance, or a complete new roof system.
How much does it cost to replace a roof?
The price to replace a roof varies from the type of roof system being removed to the square footage you need to be replaced to what type of roof system you want to install. Call us at 1-(888)443-8580 for more information or to receive a free inspection on your roof.
My commercial roof is lightly damaged, and I have some spare material. Should I replace myself?
Performing untrained work on your roof without knowing proper material handling, adhesive application, or correct trajectory for material placement could cause incremental damages instead of becoming a temporary cure. Always consult with professional roofing contractors for cost-effective solutions done by experienced roofers.
What wears out roofs?
If you are wondering what causes commercial roof systems to wear out prematurely, you may wish to consider the following causes: your roofing system has long-term and short-term exposure to certain elements, structure movements such as building settlement or expansion/contraction not accommodated by the roofing system, and biological growth such as vegetation in areas of standing water or algae growth on dark areas of the roof system are all causes of commercial roof systems to wear out prematurely.
What is the biggest cause of premature roof failure?
Forgetting About Roof Maintenance – Neglect is perhaps the biggest cause of premature roof failure. A small amount of attention to your roofing system twice a year can extend roof life by 35+%.
How can long-term exposure cause roofs wear out?
Long-term exposure to any of these elements; sun, water, or freeze-thaw can quickly age a roof system.
How can I extend the life span of my roofing system?
It may come as a surprise, but roofing systems have a life span. Regular maintenance will extend a roof’s performance. Still, at some point, the roofing system will require something much more extensive to extend its life truly. Liquid-applied coating/roof systems are ideal for extending the life of an existing roof.
Liquid-applied systems consist of elastomeric, acrylic, urethane, and other roofing-specific durable coating systems. This new layer of protection guards the roof from the harmful U.V. rays of the sun, helps seal all small cracks and defects in the original roof system and adds an additional layer of weathering protection.
What are helpful tips for inspecting your roofing system?
To ensure that you receive the highest quality of roofing services, you should partner with a trusted and experienced roofing professional, discuss your roof performance goals with your roofing professional, and research and verify any buildings with current roof warranties.
What should your roofing inspection include?
When hiring a company for a roof inspection, your roofing inspection should include the following:
- Accurate square foot measurements of roof and wall areas
- Roof type and any known manufacturer information
- Overall roof condition and life expectancy
- Core cut has taken of the roof system to determine the roof composition, attachment, and deck construction
- Evaluation of slope and drainage conditions
- Any observed roof defects or deck defects
- Report on any observed signs of leaking
- Photo documentation of all of the above
- Recommendations for repairs, continued maintenance, or replacement
What items should I discuss with my roofing professional when choosing a coating or liquid-applied re-cover system?
When choosing a coating for your roof professional should go over the following topics with you:
- Repairs or maintenance will no longer provide enough leak protection.
- Complete roof replacement is not a fit for the current roof budget.
- The owner requires a short-term (1-5 year) solution that does not involve replacement.
- Roof replacement will cause excessive noise, dirt, or logistics problems that can not be allowed at this time
