How Will I Know When My Business Needs a New Roof?

Whether it’s time to replace your commercial roof depends on a number of factors, including age and deterioration.

If your roof is older, it’s critical to have a roofing professional inspect it for any damage or issues like leaks and mold that might lead to more extensive problems in other areas of your building. A professional can advise you on whether it’s time to replace the roof or if your roof will be ok with some minor repairs.

If you have gotten your roof inspected and maintained regularly, then you might not need a new roof for a long time. Many types of roofs can last several years after their warranty expires. However, if the roof hasn’t been maintained, or if your area has recently experienced a major weather event like heavy wind or a large hail storm, then your roof might need replacing.

It’s also critical to weigh the cost of replacing the roof of your business with the cost of repairs. If you are having to spend more and more money to repair various roof issues, then it might be more cost-effective to replace the whole thing.

How Often Should I Have My Commercial Roof Inspected?

Most businesses only need to have their roof inspected once or twice per year to check for and fix issues of regular wear and tear. However, there are certain instances when you should schedule inspections more frequently to help reduce long-term damage to the roof and other parts of your building.

For one, it’s critical to have a roofing professional inspect your commercial roof after any major weather event that involves hail, heavy snow or ice, strong winds, or flying debris. They can check for common issues, such as holes in the roof, leaks, broken or missing shingles/tiles, and broken or loose flashings or vents.

It’s also critical to have your roof inspected more often as it gets older and more vulnerable to damage from changing seasons, significant weather conditions, and other events. This is especially important if your business is in an area with heavy tree coverage or other conditions, which can significantly damage roofs.

Can a Roof Help Me Save Money on Energy Bills?

Yes, a quality roof can help your business save on heating and cooling costs, plus it can help block sound and other environmental factors. Something as small as the color of your roofing material can help reduce heat transfer into your building, plus many of the new roofing technologies can help you save even more money.

For example, many new roofing materials can reflect sunlight, and some can reduce surface temperatures by as much as 100 degrees. Additionally, updated ventilation and attic insulation can not only help you save on energy bills, but they can also help your roof last longer.

Does It Matter If My Roofing Company Is Certified?

Whether your commercial roof just needs a few repairs or you’re installing a completely new roof, you’ll have no guarantee on the quality of a roofing company’s work if you use a group of workers who are not certified. Certifications mean that a company has the experience to safely handle your roofing job and that they will stand behind their work.

We’re certified as a green company, plus we hold certifications as a GAF Community Contractor and GAF Master Elite Roofing Contractor.
