A roof over your head is important when you are in any building. If you are in need of roofing for your commercial building, you are investing in your business’s protection. Your commercial building is housing your expensive equipment, your employees, and all your daily operations that happen on a daily basis. The health of your roof is as important as the health of your commercial building. It is important that you don’t just do regular maintenance checks on it but you are assured that your contractor knows what they are doing while doing the maintenance work. If you haven’t thought about your commercial roofing and it has recently come to your attention that there are major issues with it, it is important that you could get these repairs done or you may need to completely replace your roof. Here are some things to consider if you find that you are in need of a commercial roof replacement:
Find a reputable contractor for your commercial roofing
When looking for a reputable contractor, make sure to do your research, read their reviews and find out whether their company is trustworthy and highly-rated. You want to find a company or contractor that can help you with both inspection and repairs. Look for the right accreditation before you get started. If you can get some referrals from other companies that might have gotten their roofing done, it might be in your best interest to find out what they did and get their information if you think they might be able to help you too.
Have an inspector help you determine your situation
You might be able to get your roof repaired for a good price. But if there are so many problems in your roof that it would cost you less just to replace it, then it is better to go with the latter option. Completely replacing your roof is a great way to go if you have way too many repairs. You will save yourself time and money with a replacement, and it will be a long-term investment that will be completely worth it. Whether you choose to get a total roof replacement, repair or just hire someone for continuous maintenance, it is important that your roof is being inspected and that your business invests into the health of your commercial building’s health.
Check your roof for ponding
If you have not consulted with an inspector about checking your roof; you will want to do so when you can. You will definitely want to check for ponding. Ponding is when your building’s roof has a water buildup due to the lack of drainage of excess water. These pools of water can weaken your roof, cause bacterial growth and algae buildup, and can start to deform the structure of your roof. This can be a result of weather damage like heavy rainstorms or the humidity in the climate you live in.
The quality of the materials your contractor might use for your roofing
You want to make sure that your contractor will be sure to use durable, weatherproof materials when it comes to your roofing. TPO or Thermoplastic Polyolefin will be able to provide protection against UV rays, chemical exposure, and will also be able to resist against strong winds, chemicals, and fire. If your contractor uses EPDM, Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer, your repairs will be a lot more affordable. EPDM is great for roofs with a lower slope. It is quite easy and quick to install since it only requires one layer, making it a lot faster to install and a cheaper option. Polyvinyl Chloride, or PVC, will last the longest and is the best commercial roofing option since it is tougher and last longer.
