Reasons Why You Should Get A New Roof
The roof protecting your commercial property has to be consistently dependable. While commercial-grade roofing is extremely durable, wear and tear over time eventually leads the need for a roof replacement – a very worthwhile investment.
The roofing industry is technology-savvy and highly innovative. Like never before, commercial roofing materials last longer, resist moisture intrusion, protect against destructive UV sun damage, and promote energy efficiency. Today’s roof coverings and advanced roof coatings can be installed and applied with great efficiency, as well.
A commercial establishment serves many types of clients – from tenants of multi-family housing structures, to warehouses containing valuable equipment and possessions, to retail space full of expensive inventory and a constant flow of customers. Commercial facilities don’t just need to protect property from the natural elements but they need to look clean and well maintained in order to make a good impression on your company brand, attract clientele, and operate your business smoothly.
Signs You Need a New Roof
Flat and low-slope roofing, common to most commercial buildings, must perform with watertight precision. Ponding water, cracks in the roof membrane, and puncturing from airborne objects, such as as fallen limbs are just a few things which can impact a roof and lead to leaks, water stained ceilings and walls. While repairs can often mitigate moisture intrusion, a roof replacement may be the ultimate solution.
Flashing around roof penetrations, such as exhaust vents and skylights, can become displaced by severe weather conditions and aging roof that have become brittle by years of UV sunlight. When flashing becomes compromised, water can penetrate through the roof layers and ultimately into parts of the building interior. Problems with flashing don’t always mean a new roof is necessary, but if problems with flashing go neglected for too long, large portions of a commercial roof, or the entire roof, may need to be removed and replaced.
Efficient rainwater drainage from flat roofs and low-slope roofs, so common to commercial properties, is extremely important. Scuppers, gutters, and downspouts that become blocked or clogged cause water to stay trapped on rooftops. A commercial roof that has retained water for too long becomes degraded and can loses its water-resistant capability.
It is wise not to try and tackle this kind of project on your own. You can trust Pro-Tech with their expertise in commercial roofing, as they have completed many successful projects like these before.
Many commercial structures feature parapet walls. Parapets are an aesthetic element, as well as a functional feature of flat roof properties. When drainage from a roof is compromised, or during periods of heavy precipitation, water can set along parapet walls increasing the chance of water penetrating through to inner walls and building interiors. Roof coverings that do not account for parapets may require replacement. Roofing membrane material should always run up the inside face of a parapet wall at least 6 inches.
The sun is a menace for flat and low slope roofs. Over time, UV rays can make roof coverings dry and brittle. Cracks in a roof allow water to penetrate and pose the risk of leakage. Roofs become discolored by water trapped between roof layers or by standing or “ponding” water. Roof discoloration is a sign that things are not all right with a commercial roof and a roof replacement may be the best solution.
