Commercial Roof Repairs

Commercial Roof Repairs 


There is one decision bigger than deciding on a Commercial Roof Repairs, and that’s the decision not to repair it. Ignoring a leaking commercial roof can be catastrophic. One of the greatest concerns is internal damage, the result of a leak gone unattended for too long. It’s then that the structural integrity of the building can be compromised, which in turn threatens inventory and the health of employees and customers inside that building. Mold is an ever-present hazard of neglect. Water, of course, is the villain. It can cause tremendous damage during all seasons and in colder climates can seep under the top layer of the roof and freeze, creating a nightmare during the spring thaw. 

There are tell-tale signs indicating when a roof needs to be replaced or you need  commercial roof repairs

, some can even be seen with the naked eye, as when the roof is chronologically too old or looks damaged. Sometimes an owner can see insufficient support for the framing when the roof is falling in at one or more locations. Closer inspection can reveal problems such as excessive moisture in the attic and water infiltration in the attic at the flashing. We service Sebastian, Vero Beach and Fort Pierce.

Whether flat or sloped, business owners have several different options for commercial roofs. Traditionally, gravel and tar have been the go-to choice for flat roofs but, as in everything else, new options are presenting themselves. This is not to say that gravel and bitumen are obsolete. With a lifetime of between 15-30 years, gravel and bitumen is a tried and true product that does not require more specific permits. Its major disadvantage is maintenance, as the gravel needs to be redistributed for optimal performance. Whether in Fort Pierce, Vero Beach or Sebastian , call us for a commercial  roof repairs estimate.

The new kid on the block is elastomeric membrane, and this is beginning to replace in large measure the old standby of gravel and bitumen on flat roofs. This membrane is melted on your roof so that materials stick to it. Because a torch is used to melt the membrane, special permits are often required and installation by professionals is absolutely essential. It has a lifespan of 25-35 years, works extremely well and does not require special maintenance. Because it is black, though, it attracts heat and can elevate air conditioning costs. Some business owners are choosing the product in white to offset this disadvantage, even though it may cost a little during the installation phase.

TPO and EPDM are environmentally friendly options for a flat roof and its white color reflects heat, saving on air conditioning. It has a lifespan of 25-30 years and costs less than other options but has the drawback of being less resistant and must be cleaned once a year to prevent tears and other damage. Shingles are, of course, an old standby, look great and are easily installed, but have a lifespan half that of quality sheet metal. The most environmentally friendly commercial roof is the so-called “green roof,” a roof that contains large amounts of living plants, trees and grasses. This roof can provide additional living space but requires a tremendous amount of maintenance compared to other choices. 

The best option when deciding to do a commercial roof repair or replacement, is perhaps applying a roof seal coat. The best way o determine is to call a roofing contractor, we service  Fort Pierce, Vero Beach and Sebastian.

My Florida roofing is an amazing company to deal with. The recently redid our roof from shingles to standing seem metal roof. It looks amazing. I got roughly about 10 quotes from the top roofers in Indian river county and they help educate me and showed me different options of material's for the new roof. Their team came in and stripped reroof the entire home in about week to do great weather. They strip and relapse before any rain could hit the exposed material. Rene and Maxine are such a pleasure to deal with. The are very upfront about everything and every detail that you speak with Rene about is backed up with written documentation so you know and see exactly what you are paying for. They also show and explain the different options to add on if you choose to. They are very quick to respond and answer any questions you may have in a timely matter. No doubt in my mind did I make the right decision going with My Florida Roofing. I recommend and would you use them again for any future projects. Again thank you Rene, Maxine and all of the team at My Florida Roofing for making a new roof process so quick and painless

The Reyes' were very friendly, accommodating and professional. Rene visited the site often to check on the work. The crew was professional friendly and efficient. We had our roof replaced, asphalt shingles to metal, almost a year ago now and still marvel at the look. The color matches perfectly with the house trim. I highly recommend MyFloridaRoofing.
