Commercial Snow Removal

Nothing threatens the structural integrity of a commercial roof more than the stress that results from a massive build-up of snow. The weight of a heavy snowfall can push the tolerance levels of your roof to hazardous limits if left unattended. The only way to relieve that stress and prevent the roof from collapsing is by hiring a commercial snow removal service to clear it. If left unattended, a roof that is laden with heavy snow can result in more serious issues such as:

  • Considerable building damage
  • Damaging or destroying building contents
  • Endangering the lives of people inside the building
  • Roof damage

Furthermore, it can dramatically reduce or even stop productivity and result in huge financial losses. Additionally, many roof defects are attributed to winter’s freeze-thaw cycle that occurs when the weather begins to warm up. The bottom line is that this will cause a roof to start leaking and your property inside the building is going to get damaged and ruined. Thus, it is best to call in our specialists before the winters start so that we can evaluate the condition of the roof and suggest remedial measures so that the snow doesn’t damage the roof. We always recommend preventive management for our customers so that they stay safe at all times.

Retail/Industrial Roof Installation

During the many years that we have been installing retail/industrial roofing, our team of roofing professionals has always contended that no job was too big or too small for us to handle. For the business/property owner who is having an industrial or retail structure built, investing in the right roof can be somewhat daunting and even a bit overwhelming. There is so much to think about, that you can lose focus on what is most important and that is the operation of your business. Rest assured, we will take the stress and worry out of having a new roof installed.

Choosing the Right Roof

Whether you are in the construction phase of a new location or are planning on replacing your existing roof, you need to know what types of retail/industrial roofing systems are available. Basically, there are 4 types to select from:

  • EPDM roofing – characterized by its longevity, EPDM roof systems feature superior durability and offer more flexibility than other retail/industrial roofing systems. Compared to other systems, installation, maintenance, and repair is typically easier with EPDM roofing.
  • Green roofing – these types of roofing systems have grown exponentially in popularity over the past few years. These flat roofing systems are completely (or at the very least partially) covered with soil and vegetation that has been on top of a waterproofing foundation. Their popularity is attributed to their heat-reducing and insulation improving qualities.
  • Photovoltaic panels – PV solar panels absorb sunlight in order to convert it into energy for powering the building they are mounted on. As America becomes more energy conscious, mounting PV solar panels on your existing roofing system is becoming an increasingly popular option for going green and generating sustainable energy.
  • Thermoplastic roofing – an ever-increasing popular choice for commercial roofing, TPO roofing systems is characterized by its low-temperature flexibility and its tolerance for excessive heat. Plus, they are chemical, ozone, and ultraviolet resistant.

 

Additional services

Apart from the broad categorization of roofing requirements, we offer a myriad of additional industrial roofing services including:

  • Re-roofing and roof repairs
  • Shingles, foam, PVC, TPO and tile replacements
  • Insulation for the roof
  • Preventive maintenance programs
  • Cleaning gutters
  • Roof inspections
  • Roof and skylight ventilation

We have been installing retail/industrial roofing systems for years and have provided our clients with top-quality craftsmanship and unmatched service since the beginning. Whether you need the traditional wood roofing with shingles or are looking for solar paneled roof to cut your utility bills, we can help you with all the structural and design requirements. For more information regarding the different roofing retail/industrial roofing systems that we install, contact us today and speak with a company representative.

Roof Repair and Restoration

Inspecting your roof on a regular basis can save you a lot of money in the future by preventing costly repairs or full restorations. This is especially important after clearing a heavy snowfall or enduring lengthy periods of wet weather. Additionally, maintaining your roof and keeping it in good condition will add value to your home if you decide to list it on the market. According to the NRCA or the National Roofing Contractors Association, you should have your roof professionally inspected twice annually with fall and spring being the optimum times to do this.

Roof Repair vs. Roof Restoration

Roof repairs are the more cost-effective and quickest solution for addressing roof leaks. In most cases, we have found that leaky roofs are attributed to flashing issues and problems. This is evidenced by changes in direction in certain areas such as around exhaust ventilation and roof-mounted A/C units or skylights and walls. These are the more common areas of the roof to inspect in fall and spring.

Roof restoration, on the other hand, involves a lengthier process, is a major repair endeavor, and is consequently more expensive than roof repairs. However, refurbishing your entire roof can dramatically increase its lifespan. We can come out to your business or home to identify any deficiencies or inconsistencies that may exist in order to determine whether or not a total roof restoration is necessary.

What to Look For

Though our roofers are always available for assessment and evaluation of your roofing requirements, if you want to do it frequently, it is good to know more about it. When you’re inspecting your roof, you have to know what to look for. Here are a few warning signs to look for:

External/exterior of the roof – look for bald, cracked, missing, or torn shingles; blistering, buckling, or curling; excess amounts of roofing granules (large grains of sand in appearance) in the gutters; flashing damage; loose materials or signs of wear around chimneys, pipes, and vents; and signs of algae growth, moisture, mold , or rot.

Internal/attic area – look for dark spots, light coming through from outside, roof deck sagging, and signs of leaks or water damage. If there are signs of mold on the inside, it is a clear indication of water seepage and this can lead to major roofing problems, if ignored.

If you notice any of these signs after thoroughly inspecting your roof, don’t put off calling us and scheduling an inspection appointment. Now is the time to catch minor problems before they become major financial issues. We know that roofing repairs are expensive and that is why working with us is affordable. We work with plenty of insurance companies and can do the complete documentation so that your claim is settled quickly. From taking photographs, filling the paperwork and filing for the claim, we work with you at every step.

Roof Sealing and Coatings

When it comes to the roof on your business or residence, longevity and sustainability are key issues. Although this is not a new concept, roof sealing and coating are becoming increasingly popular while gaining more attention and recognition. This is due in part to bottom-line considerations and increasing environmental concerns along with more stringent building codes and EPA regulations. Consequently, the focus in the roofing industry has shifted towards longevity and sustainability.

 

Additionally, these things have enabled engineering and maintenance managers to implement environmentally-friendly roof-management strategies while reducing costs at the same time. As a result, roof sealing and coating has become a proven solution for cost-effectively restoring an older roof and maintaining them in the process. Furthermore, this reduces the negative impact on our environment.

 

Benefits of Sealing and Coating a Roof

 

Although roof sealing and coating will not be the solution for every commercial or residential roofing problem, it provides a number of benefits when it is properly applied and maintained:

 

Aesthetic improvement – instead of incurring the costs of a total roof replacement or roof restoration, the appearance of the visible areas can be improved by coating them.

 

Increased lifespan – moderately older roofs can be coated and restored so that they remain in maintainable condition. Furthermore, a leaking roof can even be restored provided we can do the following:

 

  • Identify damaged areas so they can be removed and patched prior to applying the sealing or coating
  • There is a relatively low amount of insulation that has been exposed to moisture

Less construction debris to contend with – some roofing jobs can easily generate up to 40% or more in construction material waste. This will eventually get buried in a landfill. You can prevent this by having roof sealing and coating applied so as to delay more expensive repair or restorations costs in the process.

Microclimate roof maintenance and management – you can eliminate the chance of ponding (water accumulating) on sloped roofs. These areas should be sealed or coated if the roofing membrane has deteriorated and leaks are evident. Presence of mold or mildew is a sure-shot sign that there is water accumulation or leaks.

Reduced energy consumption – roof sealing and coating can effectively reduce a commercial or residential roof’s temperature thereby decreasing energy consumption during the daytime and reducing the strain on you’re A/C system.

It is best to call us and let us know about the issues that you are facing. We’d be able to recommend the best roof sealing and coating procedures and can do it, if required. Our team of quality roofers has ample experience helping homeowners and businesses prolong and protect their roofs from the ravages of time and extreme weather conditions.

However, we also provide expert roof leak repair among our comprehensive line of roofing services. Basically, these two services are best done in conjunction with one another.

And we offer preventive maintenance subscription at low prices to ensure that our clients never have to suffer a damaged roof.

New Roof Installation

The biggest if not one of the biggest investments you will ever make in your life is your home. But ironically, the roof on your home is seldom a consideration unless there is no other choice. When it is time to put a new roof on your home, you should always consult with a professional contractor who is skilled at new roof installation, unless of course you are a skilled DIY’er specializing in roofing. In order to know what roof best suits your home’s architecture, you need the experience and knowledge that only a roofing contractor can provide.

 

How to tell when You need a New Roof

 

Most people don’t give replacing their existing roof much thought until it starts leaking or there are a number of leaks throughout the home. Chances are, if you wait until then, it’s going to cost considerably more. Let’s face it, there is a good possibility that when you finally notice that leak that there has already been some hidden structural damage which is going to add to the replacement costs.

 

In order to prevent those inflated expenses by procrastinating, here are some warning signs that indicate it may be time to have a new roof installed on your home:

 

  • Age of the roof – if it was installed properly using the right materials, the average asphalt shingle roofing system should last up to 25 years, longer in some instances. This also depends on the number of shingle layers that were installed and whether or not they were properly ventilated when it was new.

 

  • Cracking and curling are evident with some shingles – furthermore, some shingles will appear misshapen or warped. This is a sign that it needs to be replaced or reworked.

 

  • Inspect the interior of your attic for leaks and moisture – the best time to do this is after a period of heavy rainfall. If there is any signs of mold or leak, it is time to call in the roofing experts

 

  • Sag lines and other irregularities – shingle lines should always appear straight. So if there are areas where these lines are sagging, this could be an indication of a rotting sheath underneath.

 

Shingle granules in the rain gutter – when you have your roof inspected in fall and spring, our field techs will look for a build-up of what looks like sand in the trough. This needs immediate attention.

 

If you notice any or a combination of these problems, don’t hesitate. Call us immediately so we can schedule an inspection appointment. We work all year through and have preventive maintenance packages to ensure that our experts work effectively on your roofing requirements. We ensure that even the slightest issue is resolved immediately which ensures that major damage is avoided. However, even after this, with age and wood deterioration, you may require replacement and a new roof. For all of these requirements, we are just a call away.
