The commercial flat roofing experts at A-Plus Roofing will talk about when leaks happen to commercial flat roofs. We will discuss some of the main causes of a commercial roof leak and how we can help troubleshoot and repair your roof.
With all of the attention and focus on your day-to-day business, it can be easy to overlook what’s going on overhead. A commercial flat roof is one of the hardest-working roofing systems around. The intricate roofing systems of a commercial flat roof are manufactured to be incredibly durable with the simplest, most economical design possible.
Not all roofs are created equal, and this is especially true when comparing commercial flat roofs to the type of sloped or pitched roofs found in residential roofing. Flat roofs are the most common roofs found in industrial and commercial buildings. Even if you know everything there is to know about how a sloped residential roof works, a flat roof is fundamentally different and has completely different needs. Rather than asphalt shingles, flat roofs typically use either tar and gravel or protective membranes to prevent water and air infiltration.
William Shakespeare once said, “A rose by any other name would smell as sweet.” A rose is a rose, but are all roofs the same? At its most basic, a roof’s job is to protect a building from the elements no matter what the purpose of the building beneath it. That’s why you might be surprised to learn that there are actually a few key differences between a commercial and a residential roof.
If you’ve got a commercial business with a flat roof, you may think it’s in great shape and not realize it has problems until you experience damage inside your facility. That’s because it can be tough to tell when there’s a problem on a flat roof.
If you’re a Twin Cities business owner, you know all too well the importance of a quality commercial flat roof. Your roof is your building’s main defense against some of the extreme temperature changes, snow, hail, and rain we can see here in Minnesota. It also works to protect your business against strong wind, debris, extreme heat, and even fire.
There is a wide range of factors to take into consideration when choosing your commercial roof. Cost, quality, and durability are all key elements to be taken into account. One of the most important considerations you might have overlooked is LEED certification. LEED certification stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design and is a certification program sponsored by the United States Green Building Council (USGBC).
When it comes to winter, Minnesota roofs are truly put to the test. When the snow and ice take over, your roof needs to perform at its best to protect your business or multi-family units from damage. Between all the added weight from snow and thick ice, winter roof damage can cost upwards of thousands of dollars.
It is recommended that you have a commercial roof inspection performed every six to 12 months. The frequency in which you need your roof inspected varies based on the age of your roof, the type of commercial roof you have in place and the condition of your commercial roof. Commercial roof inspections take time and they cost money. As such, you may find yourself wondering if this is something you really need to do and why. Here are three reasons why routine commercial roof inspections are a must for any commercial building.
