A commercial roofing project is a significant investment. Whether you are looking for a commercial roofing contractor for new roof installation or repair of your existing roof, here are answers to some frequently asked questions.
It is possible to install a new roof without tearing off the existing roof if you have only one roof on your building. However, if the building already has two roofs, this will not be possible as commercial buildings cannot have more than two roofing layers according to law. Also, if your building has an unsafe, damaged, or unstable roof, your contractor will have to tear it off before installing a new roof.
We provide a free roof assessment to all our clients, which will help them determine the quality of their existing roof. After the evaluation, if the roof has internal damages, such as roof leaks or mold, you may need to replace it.
It's best to contact a commercial roofing contractor in your area as soon as spring begins because contractors tend to be busy during warmer months. However, you should schedule a roof survey as soon as possible if you find that there is a roofing emergency.
Many factors contribute to the cost of a commercial roofing system, such as roof size, ease of roof access, condition of the existing roof, ease of roof penetration, type of warranty provided, choice of insulation and membrane, etc.
The lifetime of a commercial roofing system depends on many factors, from roof type to weather conditions. For example, a spray polyurethane foam roof can last up to 30-50 years, whereas a metal roof can last up to 30-45 years.
The time taken to complete a commercial roofing project depends on factors such as the size and type of roof, existing damage, inspections, weather, and permits. Each job is unique and could take from a few days to a few weeks.
