Commercial Roofing – The First Thing To Fix At Your Company

A business is only as good as its foundation. That isn’t figurative. It’s literal. The building in which a business is located has to be sound. Otherwise, the business conducted will be affected. For example, imagine negotiating a deal while drops of water fell from the ceiling onto the table. A wet contract isn’t a good start to any business arrangement. The solution is to repair the building, and the best place to start is the roof.

In fact, the demand for commercial roofing in the United States is expected to increase by 1.6 percent per year until 2020.

Commercial roofing is a multi-billion dollar industry. In fact, the demand for commercial roofing in the United States is expected to increase by 1.6 percent per year until 2020. The amount of roofing laid down is expected to reach 110 million squares (each square is 100 square feet). This is estimated to be worth $7.8 billion.

One of the common roofing products is flat roof installation. An the biggest problem with flat roof installation is leaky seams. The best solution is PVC and TPO roofing materials. Both have hot-welded seams that don’t come apart, even in the harshest weather conditions. Always ask contractors if they use PVC or TPO. If they say something else, such as tar and gravel, rolled asphalt, or modified bitumen, then it’s time to hire someone else. These materials are susceptible to leaks and puddle formation.

PVC and TPO are recyclable materials. Most PVC roofs can be installed without removing the old roof. This avoids tear offs, which end up as waste in landfills. Thus, PVC and TPO reduce environmental waste. EPDM, tar & gravel, and modified bitumen are made of petroleum based by-products, making them un-recyclable. These materials increase landfill waste.

PVC and TPO roofs are easy to maintain, and they are suited for add-ons. New equipment could be added without any hassles from the roof. If there’s damage, the roof can be easily patched.

Puncture resistance is another factor to consider when installing a new roof on a building. Built-up roofs are generally hard and have a thickness of 0.5 inches. Single piles and spray foam, on the other hand, are easy to puncture.

The third thing to consider when purchasing new roofing materials is longevity. Typically, manufacturers offer 25 year warranties for commercial installations. PVC roofs last 30 years. EPDM roofs last up to 15 years, but the warranties on this type of roof don’t cover failing seams or puddle formation.

The cost of commercial roofing varies, but there is a general agreement on the price. For example, PVC roofing costs between $6.50 and $7.50 per square foot. EDPM rubber is valued between $5.50 and $6.50 per square foot. One more priced roofing material is TPO. It costs $6 to $7 per square foot. These costs are for a work order over 1,000 square feet. The average cost of a flat roof ranges between $6,815 and $11,211.

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.
