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.

I cannot recommend My Florida Roofing Contractor-Rene Reyes highly enough! As our roof was reaching its 20-year mark, we decided to entrust My Florida with the task, and we couldn't be more pleased with the experience.

From start to finish, the entire process was seamless and impressive. The roof passed its final inspection just a week after the work commenced, a testament to the efficiency and quality of their work. The crew's service and work ethic were truly outstanding, and their teamwork and attention to detail were remarkable.

Throughout the project, I was kept informed of every step, ensuring that I was always in the loop. The crew's professionalism shone through not only in their work but also in how diligently they cleaned up after themselves. To top it off, the roof was completed by the end of the second day, showcasing their commitment to timeliness and excellence.

Dan, who was present throughout the entire process, deserves special commendation for his professionalism and the smooth flow he brought to the project. Working with him was a pleasure and ensured that everything went according to plan.

In conclusion, My Florida Roofing Contractor-Rene Reyes exceeded our expectations in every way. If you're looking for a reliable, efficient, and professional roofing contractor, look no further. Thank you to the entire team for a job well done!
