Commercial Roofing Services

Choosing the right roof for your building is just as important as the building you are constructing. You must consider several factors such as costs, local weather and climate, building architecture, budget, and so on. All of these factors are important in determining the best commercial roof for your building.

Commercial roofs are typically used on commercial buildings because they are larger, sturdier, and capable of supporting the weight and size of the structure. Naturally, there are numerous commercial roof designs, each with its own set of costs, maintenance requirements, and installation process.

This article will help you learn the various commercial roof designs, as well as their installation, costs, and maintenance.

Types of Commercial Roofs 

The primary function of a commercial roof is to protect your property. As previously stated, it is capable of supporting the weight and size of your structure. They are typically made of single-ply (TPO, PVC, EPDM), concrete, modified bitumen, tar and gravel, and a variety of other materials. When it comes to the design or type of commercial roof you want, you have many options. Built-Up, Metal, Thermoplastic PVC, Thermoset EPDM, and other materials are available.

Built-Up Roofing

The most common type of tar and gravel roof system is built-up roofing. It is made up of multiple layers or piles that add to the system's durability. BUR is a low-slope roof system that is a good option if you need a long-lasting, low-cost roof.

Modified Bitumen Roofing

Modified bitumen commercial roofing systems (mod-bit roofing) are made up of reinforced roof fabrics and bitumen layers. To ensure maximum protection and stability, it is fastened to rooftops as two-ply systems. Modified bitumen roofs are easier to maintain and have a higher ductile strength than other commercial flat roofs. If you anticipate a high volume of activity, it is an excellent choice for you.

Metal Roofing

Metal roofs are a popular commercial roofing design. They are available in different materials, including:

  • Metal tile sheets, 
  • Corrugated galvanized steel, 
  • Stainless steel, 
  • Stone-coated steel, 
  • Silicon-coated steel, 
  • Copper, 
  • Aggregates of aluminum, 
  • Zinc, 
  • Tin, 
  • Lead, and more.

 Metal commercial roofing systems are long-lasting and have high fire resistance ratings. They are frequently coated with protective layers to prevent rusting and damage from sunlight and other environmental factors. They are also an appealing option that contributes to a more feasible design for your property.

A consistent, reliable, and true to their word roofing contractor will do things the same high quality way every time. If a roofing company you're consulting has no predictable process, they also have no predictable results. In other words, the return on your investment with them will be a gamble. At True Roofing, our roofing process is the same whether it's for a minor roof repair or a major roof replacement. Our results are high quality, reliable, predictable, repeatable. 


The Inspection

The inspection is the first step many contractors skimp on. That's a mistake that can cost both you as the customer and the roofer dearly. That doesn't mean it has to take a long time, however. An inspection by an experienced and highly qualified roofing veteran can be conducted in 30-60 minutes and again, they will follow a set process with a checklist to ensure complete assessment of the situation. If a roofer is casual about assessing your roof and flippant about quoting you thousands of dollars for repairs or installation, we suggest you move on to another company. The inspection sets the ground work for everything else.


Working Out The Details

The quoting, discussion of budgetary concerns, payment options such as financing, and finally scheduling. If you have any special notes or concerns, if you have specific scheduling, if you want a certain type of shingle, custom metal roof, tile roof, etc., we will discuss all these details with you, answer every possible question you have, and ensure you're ready to move on. True Roofing will never use high pressure sales tactics, nor will we ever need to. You will see the value upfront, and we do everything possible to make our services as affordable as possible to everyone at all budget levels. No high pressure sales, ever.


Doing it Right the First Time

The last step is to actually get out there and do the work. Whether it's a minor repair, major repair, small installation, major replacement, your roofing crew will treat it with the same level of attention that we treat all our projects. Armed with the detailed inspection notes and knowing exactly what needs to be done, prepared with the schedule and time frames, and any special notes & concerns you may have, our crew can proceed along the previously agreed on plan and execute it flawlessly. The purpose of the process is to standardize results, and we carry that mindset into our work on the roof as well. Do it once, do it right.

Green Roofing 

Green roofs have become a sustainable option for property owners in recent years. They have the potential to improve efficiency while also addressing water and drainage issues. They are also attractive and eco-friendly commercial roofing material.

Thermoset EPDM

Thermoset EPDM is short for Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer. It is a bit mouthful hence the need to be shortened to EPDM. It is adaptable, long-lasting, and easy to maintain. It is made of single-ply rubber material, has an easy installation process, and is ozone and ultraviolet light-resistant. EPDM roofs also have resistance to some solvents, acids, and alcohol, flexibility in colder temperatures, and reflective properties that can help reduce cooling costs. It is ideal for people living in colder climates.

Thermoplastic PVC and TPO Roofing

For second-generation applications, roofs made of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and thermoplastic polyolefin (TPO) are ideal. They are light and highly reflective, as well as resistant to UV rays, punctures, most chemicals, and bacterial growth. PVC and TPO commercial roofs are ideal for restaurants, hotels, and other businesses that use oil-emitting ventilation systems. 

Other benefits include high-temperature tolerance, fire resistance, and high wind resistance.

Shingle Roofing

This type of roofing is typically used on residential structures, but it can also be used on steep slope commercial roofing applications. 

Asphalt and Architectural Shingles are the two main types of shingle roofing. Asphalts are the most common and have a warranty of 15-30 years. 

Architectural shingles are multi-layered and heavier to increase the building's durability and weatherproofing. Frequently comes with "lifetime" warranties. There is also single-ply roofing, liquid applied roofing, and other options.

Commercial Roof Estimation 

Your roofing is an integral part of your building - your building literally cannot function without it. As a result, making certain that you get the absolute best for it is very important. It must be completed and completed correctly. However, it is easier said than done. The first thing you should expect is that the estimates you receive from different contractors will not be the same. You must understand exactly what you are purchasing so that you do not end up with a subpar product simply because it is inexpensive. 

Here are some things to think about before selecting a roof or a contractor:

Type of Roof

Roofing Layers


Roof Accessibility

Local Climate

Your roofing estimate should include as many details about the roof as possible. Remember, the goal is to get a long-lasting roof, not a cheap one. The longer it lasts, the better for you it is.

Commercial Roof Installation

When attempting to install a roof, you must use a reliable contractor. This is why going with the contractor who offers the lowest estimate is not the best option. If your contractor is dependable, you are already a step closer to getting the best roof and service. 

Your installation is determined by the following factors:

  • The structure's architecture 
  • The activities that will take place within the walls 
  • Climate and local weather patterns
  • Energy efficiency requirements 
  • Your budget.

All of these factors should be discussed with a contractor before proceeding.

Commercial Roof Maintenance

Maintaining your roof is easy work. You do not have to do too much for the durability that the effort is going to give you. Here are some options to help you with this:

  • Cleaning debris off the roof
  • Treating leaks, tears, or water damages as soon as possible 
  • Repairing flashing and HVAC systems 
  • Preparing the roof for every season 
  • Ensuring the roofing material is in excellent condition. 
When properly maintained, commercial roofs can last many years. The life expectancy for roofs is fifteen to thirty years depending on the kind of roof you are getting. 
The life expectancy for some roofs are:
EPDM - 30 years 
PVC - 20 years 
TPO - 15 to 20 years. 

Surprised? Well, don’t be. Giving them the proper maintenance they deserve will make them last as long as possible.

Commercial Roof Replacement

There will come a time when you will need to repair or replace something you own. It is one of life's inevitabilities. This also applies to roofing. And, like all of your other possessions, it is sometimes preferable to replace rather than repair.

However, there are some things you consider before replacing your roof:

  • The Age: How old is your roof? If your roofing is too old for repair, then it is simply best to replace it. This is because you could end up spending a lot more on repairing it than buying one brand new. 
  • Roof Leaks: If there is a leak, it is possible to repair it rather than replace it entirely. All you have to do when it rains is locate the source of the leak and have it repaired. 
  • Visible Roof Damage: If there are visible and severe damages to the roof, the obvious solution is to replace it completely.

There are also alternatives for replacing your roof. You could do a Roof Re-Cover or Roof Coating. 

Choosing the right roofing for your building does not have to be a difficult task. You have several options to consider. All that remains is to find the right contractor to assist you with installation and estimation. You can also get professional assistance for maintenance and repairs to avoid having to replace your roof after a short while.
