5 Expert Tips to Make Your Commercial Roofing Sustainable

Posted on December 2nd, 2015 by Applied Roofing Services

When it comes to the roof, calling in an expert who is well versed when it comes to commercial flat roofing will help to ensure everything is in good condition at the time of each inspection. An expert knows exactly what to look for in terms of distress or damage that could lead to costly repairs if not taken care of promptly.

Commercial Flat Roofing

An expert will inspect the following 5 signs to know whether your commercial roofing needs repair or replacement, and in turn help to make it more sustainable:

  1. The Roof’s Age
    When an expert inspects a commercial roof, they will take into consideration its age, general condition, and degree of maintenance when determining whether or not it should be replaced or repaired.

  2. Moisture Content
    All types of roofs will retain moisture. Whether it has soaked into the materials or rests in grooves and crevices, moisture can lead to the growth of algae, moss and other types of fungi that can cause deterioration and eventually, damage.

  3. The General Condition of the Roof
    An expert roofing contractor that works with commercial flat roofing can examine a roof, and determine the level of wear and tear it has been exposed to. They can determine how well it has been maintained, and how much longer it will be able to be sustained in its current condition before major repairs are needed.

  4. Thorough Inspection of the Roofing Deck
    The roofing deck is the main support for the entire roof. In most cases, if a thorough inspection of the roofing deck shows any substantial degree of damage, the roofing expert will recommend roof replacement instead of making minor repairs.

  5. The Lifting Test
    In areas where high winds and moderate to severe storms are possible, checking to see if any tiles or roofing sections lift when disturbed will help determine if repairs need to be made. If large areas of roofing materials lift or rise, a new roof may be recommended.

Making Sure The Contractor You Hire Has Workers’ Comp Insurance

Posted on April 21st, 2015 by Applied Roofing Services

California contractors are required to carry workers’ compensation insurance, regardless of the number of employees they have. This is critically important if you are a homeowner or business who hires a contractor. Keep in mind, on the job accidents can happen, and if you have hired someone who is not covered by a workers’ compensation policy, chances are they have had a problem with their contractor’s license as well. Also remember that if an injury occurs on your property and the contractor does not have the proper coverage, you could be held liable for any injuries that occur on the job.

What type of injuries can occur with a roofing project?

While you may think that nothing can go wrong that could result in a worker being injured, there are thousands of things that can go wrong during a construction project. Workers can get shocked due to a defect in one of their tools, or they may even cut off a digit or a limb with a power tool. The last thing you need to worry about is having someone sue you because they were injured on the job.

California has one of the most stringent workers’ compensation rules in the United States. Keep in mind when you hire a contractor that you should ask to see the certificate of insurance for their workers’ compensation, as well as their liability policy in the event they do damage to your property.
