What is Considered Commercial Roofing?

Is it really that important to hire a commercial roofing company for warehouse roof repair?

Let’s put it this way: If you needed to have surgery on your hands, you wouldn’t seek the advice of a doctor who specializes in feet. Even though you may feel that the specialties are related, you would want to hire the right person for the job.

So, if you are looking for a company to help you with a leaky roof on the storage business you just purchased, don’t hire your neighbor down the street who does residential roofing. He may be a nice guy, but you need to hire a commercial roofing expert for your situation.

What is Commercial Roofing?

Unlike residential roofs, a commercial roof is typically (but not always) flat. Because of the size of an institutional or industrial roof, special tools and equipment are required for safe, high-quality commercial roofing installation, repair, and maintenance.

While these tools and equipment may be similar to what a residential roofer would use, those specializing in industrial roofing have much more experience with commercial roof material.

Commercial Roofing Types

There are many different types of commercial building roof types. Those working in residential roofing may not have any experience with commercial roof products.

On the other hand, a commercial roofing company in your area will have experience with the installation, repair, and maintenance of the following:

  • Single Ply Roof (EPDM or Thermoplastic Systems)
  • TPO (Thermoplastic Polyolefin)
  • PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride)
  • EPDM (Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer)
  • Modified Bitumen
  • Built-Up Roofing
  • Roof Coating
  • Liquid Applied Roofing
  • Metal Roof Systems

Whatever type of roof you have, you should always work with a professional roofing company specializing in your particular style. Find an expert who can provide the best possible service, and your roof will keep your staff, customers, products, and equipment protected from the elements.

In addition, commercial building roofers would have more experience with steep slope roofs, green roofs, and solar roofing panels.

Commercial Roof Maintenance

While both residential and commercial roofs require attention, the maintenance for a commercial roof requires an expert in the field. In fact, commercial roofs require regular inspections. Without routine maintenance and inspections, minor problems can become significant, expensive issues.

Commercial Roofing Replacement

And, of course, when it is time for a commercial building roofing replacement, it’s time to bring in the experts. Such experts can give you details on how a green roof can save your company money while saving the environment.
