Commercial & Industrial Roofing FAQ

How Should I Choose A Roof?

A few major factors to consider when selecting roofing materials are longevity, maintenance, reliability and aesthetic. While 20 years is standard for roof warranties, most warranties range from 5-30 years, depending on the product and manufacturer.

How do I know if I should repair or replace my roof?

The first thing you need to know is the composition and age of your roof. Age is the biggest factor when considering a new roofing system. You may also want to consider the effects of weather, chemical stress, and roof traffic. A thorough roof inspection is required in order to determine the best roof ‘action plan.’

Our roof is leaking; do we need a new roof?

A leak is usually the first indicator that something needs to be fixed. Leaks are not always obvious, nor are they necessarily located directly under the section where the ceiling is dripping. Water seeping in from the roof often travels through a low point, causing discoloured spots on the ceiling, walls and other areas away from the leak.

Is there anything I can do to prolong the life of my roof?

Maintenance is key when trying to prolong the life expectancy of your roof. A proper preventative maintenance program is absolutely essential for every commercial roof.
