In planning a commercial roof, a lot of care must go into deciding what is best for the customer’s individual needs. At Perdomo Roofing & Sheetmetal, LLC we take pride in making sure that you get the commercial roof you need to help your business thrive. This means using the best possible materials no matter what type of roof you choose. Proper roof maintenance can go a long way towards preventing costly damages and repairs. A good roof can also help reduce your energy costs. Remember that every day a business is closed due to roof issues, is lost revenue and customers that can be very hard to make up for.
There are many different options for commercial spaces today. Below are some of the types of roofs that are better for commercial applications.
A metal roof will last for a very long time and can often be easily installed over an existing roof. This can save a lot of time and money because you don’t have to pay for expensive roof removal and/or stay closed for business any longer than absolutely necessary. Metal roofing often carries a manufacturer’s warranty of 25-45 years and requires little maintenance. You can also match your metal roof to the existing colors of your building so it is very pleasing to the eye. Metal is very good at shedding water so you do not have to worry about your roof not shedding water fast enough. There are several types of metal roofing systems depending on how much of a slope you have on your existing or planned roof. Architectural metal panels are best for those with higher slopes while seamed or structural metal panels are used on roofs with only slight slopes.
Flat roofs are the most common commercial roofing system in the United States. They are cost effective because the greater the slope of a roof, the more materials are needed for the roofing job. A disadvantage is that a flat roof can make it hard to spot problems before you have leaks unless some routinely walks the roof, whereas on a sloped roof you can more easily see the entire body of your roof from below and are thus more likely to see a potential problem before a bad leak occurs. Flat roofs are usually constructed of modified bitumen. Layers of bitumen in the form of coal tar pitch or asphalt and felt are laminated together at the construction site. The asphalt or pitch waterproofs while the felt adds stability. The result is a watertight membrane. A good and properly maintained gutter and drainage system is very important when constructing a flat roof because water is more likely to accumulate on a flat roof than one with even a slight slope. In heavy rains this can pose problems if the drainage system becomes clogged.
