Commercial Roofing Damage

commercial roofing damageThe roof that presides atop your commercial building acts as its first line of protection from Mother Nature’s elements and represents a significant financial investment. Your roof is also the most vulnerable part of your building and is daily exposed to elements that foster deterioration and decay, increasing the likelihood that your roof—and everything below it—may become damaged.

When commercial roof damage occurs, do you know where to turn for quality repairs that are performed correctly and to code?

The Scammer’s Creed

From roofing contractors who aren’t as experienced as they claim to be to outright scammers looking to cheat you, there are plenty of individuals out there looking to make quick money at your expense.

One common scam in the roofing industry relates to “storm chasers.” We’re not talking about scientists who track tornadoes in order to study them. Roofing storm chasers follow storms across the country to profit in places where a big storm has hit and local roofing companies are overrun with more repair requests than they can accommodate. Of course, since they aren’t interested in sticking around long-term, there is no incentive for them to make sure the roofs serviced last any longer than when they collect their checks.

Of course it’s just as common for a residential contractor to misrepresent themselves as a commercial expert when given the opportunity. There are countless types of commercial roofs out there and it takes many years of experience to correctly service them all. Because of the difficulty of commercial roofing and what is at stake, it’s crucial you choose a company with direct factory training and the knowledge needed to service your roof correctly the first time while insurance is paying for it.

Problem Solved

choice roof stormSo, what do you do if a disastrous storm or other catastrophic event has ravaged your area? When there is a huge spike in roofing claims that local firms can’t accommodate, are you just out of luck? Not at all!

In the case of such an event, additional help from professionals in other states may be needed to address all of the damage—but that doesn’t mean you have to close your eyes and just hope the roofer at your door isn’t a scammer.

Through Choice Roof Contractor Group, a nationwide association of verified roofing companies who keep each other accontable, you can always find a contractor who is honest and reliable. 

No matter what type of roofing services you’re in need of—whether routine or to address damage from a natural disaster or extreme weather event—you can find a verified group member to help you. If a local group member is overloaded with jobs in the wake of the storm, guess what? They can call on other verified professionals from across the nation to come and help pick up the extra work. The result is you can rest easy knowing your roof is being serviced by a reliable professional and, once the work is done, you will have continued access to expert follow-up work.

Flat Roof Repair Contractors

If your commercial building has a flat roof, the day will come when you need the services of a flat roof repair contractor. In selecting a contractor, it’s important to choose one that has expertise in the type of roof you have. Hiring a shingle roofer who mainly services homes can be disastrous, as roofing a commercial building is a completely different ballgame.

Types of Flat Roofs

flat roof repair contractorsFlat commercial roofs are a popular choice for commercial and residential buildings, and there are various types of flat roof systems to choose from.

One of the most common types of flat roofs is built-up roofing, or BUR. For a BUR system, the finished membrane generally consists of alternating layers of bitumen (usually asphalt, coal tar or cold-applied adhesive) and reinforcing fabrics. Surfacings used include aggregate like gravel, slag or mineral granules; mineral-surfaced or glass-fiber cap sheets; hot asphalt mopped over the roof surface; elastomeric coatings; or aluminum coatings. Asphalt BUR is the most common type and is made up of multiple layers of asphalt and reinforcing plies, forming a redundancy of waterproofing layers.

Single-ply membranes are another common flat roof type. They are factory manufactured and usually classified as either thermoset (EPDM) or thermoplastic (TPO or PVC). The main difference is thermoset materials become irreversibly solidified following heating, while thermoplastic materials can be repeatedly softened and hardened through heating and cooling.

Modified bitumen is also a common choice for flat roofing. It features polymer-modified membranes that are composed of reinforcing fabrics that serve as carriers for hot polymer-modified bitumen while it is transformed into a roll material. Similar to BUR membranes, the membrane of a modified bitumen roof is composed of multiple layers. This type of roof system is generally installed as a two-ply system, and it is almost always fully adhered. The surfacings of modified bitumen membranes include aggregate surfacing, metal foil-laminate surfacing, mineral surfacing and smooth liquid-applied surfacing.

Commercial Metal Roofing Options

For commercial and industrial buildings, metal roofing has become a popular choice for a variety of reasons. Commercial metal roofing is known for its longevity and durability; its low-maintenance qualities; its resistance to discoloration and decay; and its robustness in standing up to physical impacts, fire, high winds and more.

If you’re considering a metal roof for your commercial or industrial building, keep reading as we break down some of the most common types of metal roofs and details about them.

Commercial Metal Roof Types

metal roofing optionsAmong the metal roofing materials used for commercial application, some of the most common include:

  • Corrugated galvanized steel
  • Standing seam metal
  • Steel that is coated with a blend of zinc, aluminum and silicon
  • Stainless steel
  • Copper
  • Aluminum
  • Painted or stone-coated metal sheets

Metal roofs can be further broken down into five basic profile types:

  1. Standing seam
  2. CF panel
  3. AP panel
  4. U-panel
  5. R-panel

Standing seam roofs are considered the most attractive metal roofing option—and they are also the most costly.

The name “standing seam” refers to a seam that has been mechanically hemmed at 12- to 24-inch intervals. One of the biggest advantages of a standing seam roof is it has no exposed fasteners; the panels are attached to the roof deck by means of screws and metal clips, which are hidden by the neighboring panel.

CF panel, or concealed fastener, metal roofs employ a lock-joint system that gives a clean and smooth appearance, and the fasteners are hidden. This type of metal roofing is known to be almost maintenance-free as well as fire and hail resistant.

AP panel metal roofing resembles standing-seam roofing but costs a lot less. AP panels use a pass-through system, which allows the screws to show. This type of roof is known to be very durable, low-maintenance, and fire and hail resistant.

U-panel roofing is typically composed of 26-gauge commercial-grade steel, which is heavier than the material typically used on metal roofs. U-panel roofing can often be installed over top of a shingle roof without the need for removal. This type of roofing can resist up to 140 mph winds; has a long life expectancy; and is known to be energy-efficient, low-maintenance, and hail and fire resistant.

R-panel metal roofing is low-maintenance and durable and presents an alternative to conventional roofing, as it can be retrofitted over top of existing roof material. It is also resistant to winds up to 140 mph, is fire and hail resistant, and is often made from 26-gauge steel.

Residential Flat Roof Replacement

residential flat roof replacementIf the roof on your home doesn’t fit the cookie cutter mold of being a peaked roof with shingles, you may have a difficult time locating a willing contractor when you find yourself in need of roofing services. The reason is that many residential roofing contractors don’t know how to install or perform repairs on unique roof types, such as flat roofs. So when you’re in need of residential flat roof replacement, for instance, you may find yourself up the proverbial creek without a paddle.

The solution is hiring a roofer that has expertise in both commercial and residential roofing. Since flat roofs are a common choice for commercial buildings, the technicians at a dual-service roofing company—one that services both commercial and residential roofs—can bring their commercial roofing expertise to your residential job and provide you with the residential flat roof services you need without it costing a fortune.

Benefits of Flat Roofs

Flat roofs are a common choice for commercial and industrial buildings, but they are a lot less common on North American homes. For homeowners who opt for a flat roof on their house, there are various benefits, including:

  • Style – Flat roofs give homes an attractive, modern look with clean lines and unique style.
  • Usable Space – One of the reasons flat roofs are an alluring choice for commercial buildings is they turn the top of a building into an extra floor of usable space—and the same principle holds true on a home. When your house has a flat roof, you can utilize that space for a rooftop deck, a rooftop garden and more.
  • Cost – Flat roofs are a comparatively low-cost option when initially installed.
  • Easy Access – Because they are flat and not pitched, flat roofs are easy to access and walk on. This makes tasks like cleaning gutters, hanging Christmas lights and more much easier to accomplish.

Replacement Isn’t Always Necessary

flat roof alternativeDid you know that, statistically, roofs are replaced prematurely as much as 70-80 percent of the time? An expert roofing contractor with a good reputation will never advise roof replacement unless there is absolutely no other viable option.

Oftentimes, an outside-the-box roofing solution like applying a high-quality roof coating can delay the need for roof replacement by years. Roof coatings are a popular solution for commercial roofs, and they are an excellent option for a flat residential roof, as well.

A roof coating can fix all of your existing roof’s problems with one application and extend the life of your current roof by many years.  A roof coating adds an extra, protective membrane layer over top of an old roof, restoring it to like-new condition at a fraction of the cost that a labor-intensive roof replacement would require. The various benefits of our group’s preferred roof coating include:

  • ENERGY STAR® certified
  • Fully waterproof solution
  • Backed by 40-year reputation
  • Guaranteed to extend roof life up to 18 years
  • Completely seals your existing roof and protects it from Mother Nature’s elements
  • Roof can be re-coated later on for even greater life extension
  • No expensive, labor-intensive roof tear-off needed
  • Less maintenance and upkeep required
  • Can lower roof temperature by up to 80 degrees

Sometimes a roof must be replaced and there is no other choice; the time will eventually come when even a well-maintained roof needs replacing. When that time arrives, only a licensed, knowledgeable roofing contractor should ever be engaged to perform the work.

Time and time again, reputable roofers get called in to fix problems that have resulted from an inexperienced roofer performing work on a building. Oftentimes, that shoddy work that wasn’t performed to code leads to bigger, much more expensive problems. As with so many things in life, it’s better to do it right the first time.

Because our focus is on giving peace of mind to building owners instead of convincing them to let us sell their contact information, prospective customers are naturally drawn to working with our group.

Commercial Flat Roof Replacement Avoidance

commercial flat roof replacementThe age-old adage “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” has definite application to commercial roofs. Keeping up on routine inspections and maintenance for your roof is the wise—and less expensive—route, while neglecting your roof will only lead to costly headaches down the road.

Flat roofs are a common type of roof found on commercial and industrial buildings. While they have their benefits, flat roofs are also prone to a common set of problems—any of which can lead to the need for premature roof replacement if ignored. Proper and proactive maintenance is essential for flat roof replacement avoidance.

Common Flat Roof Problems

Some of the most common problems associated with flat roofs include blistering; ridging; splitting; and ponding water, or water that remains on a roof for a prolonged period of time. The expense to fix these problems can add up to many thousands of dollars. If you want to avoid such costs, it is absolutely crucial that regular maintenance is performed on your roof.

To properly maintain a flat roof and help avoid some of the common problems they’re prone to developing, building owners can follow these maintenance tips:

  • Proper drainage: Flat roofs drain less efficiently than pitched roofs, which means they are more apt to accumulate water following storms or snow melt. If this standing water is not drained properly, it can cause significant damage to both your roof and your building interior. Installing proper drainage, like hoppers, automatic pumps, gutters and drains, can help reduce the risk of ponding water and its related damage by diverting water away from the roof.
  • Remove snow & debris: The accumulation of snow and debris can cause significant damage to a flat roof if it is left to sit atop the roof. When snow begins to melt or water becomes trapped beneath leaves and other debris, various problems can develop. It is important to remove snow and debris promptly. This can be done through regularly scheduling roof cleaning and debris removal and also conducting snow and debris removal following large storms.
  • Maintenance of trees: Any trees growing around the perimeter of your flat roof can be problematic. Overhanging branches can scratch and damage your roof in windy conditions, and leaves can also fall from trees and collect on your roof, impairing its draining ability. In general, a clearance of at least 3 feet should be maintained between tree branches and your roof.

Commercial Flat Roof Repair Tips

commercial flat roof repairFlat roofs are a common choice for commercial and industrial buildings—unfortunately, they are prone to a common set of problems. The following commercial flat roof repair tips can help building owners reduce their flat roof repair costs and extend the life of their roof. After all, it makes much more sense to protect the roof you have than to pay for an expensive roof replacement because it wasn’t properly cared for.

1. Attend to Water Issues

The term “flat roof” is somewhat misleading, as nearly all flat roofs are actually slightly pitched by a few degrees to help with water drainage. Ponding water is one of the most common problems associated with a flat roof because the slope is so low. Insulation compression, foot traffic and minor roof deck imperfections can all cause water to accumulate on a flat roof. To help prevent the damage that can result from ponding water, a good temporary measure is to carefully sweep off accumulated water each time there has been a heavy storm.

2. Protection from the Sun

Like other types of roofs, flat roofs are prone to sustaining damage from the sun. BUR and modified bitumen roofs are particularly vulnerable to sun-related damage because heat from the sun cooks the important chemicals out of the layers, and single-ply roofs are susceptible to damage from ultraviolet radiation. The best option for protecting your flat roof from sun damage is a high-quality roof coating system, which helps reflect the heat and UV rays. Application of a high quality, reflective roof coating also minimizes expansion and contraction for a longer-lasting roof.

3. Keep Up on Maintenance

No matter what kind of roof you have, regular maintenance is crucial for keeping it in good condition and helping it reach its full life expectancy. In addition to semiannual inspections, have your roof examined by a professional every time there is a significant storm or other event that could cause damage. Have any damage promptly repaired.

If you have an atypical kind of roof on your home, such as a flat roof, you may have a difficult time finding a roofing contractor that is willing to provide you with services.

Many homeowners are turned down by roofers because they don’t have a shingled roof; the majority of residential roofers simply don’t have the expertise to service a roof that doesn’t fit the typical mold. If you are a homeowner in this situation and cannot find a roofer to perform residential flat roof repair work on your home, do you know where to turn?

Groundwork Laid for Future Business Expansion Between Conklin Company and BASF Corporation

basf-conklinLeaders representing the Conklin Company and BASF Corporation met in Houston, Texas, earlier this month to prepare for future joint ventures between the two companies that are planned to take place within the commercial roofing industry.

Conklin and BASF have successfully partnered nationally in the spray polyurethane foam insulation business for more than 25 years. In today’s environment of money-consciousness and increased concern over energy efficiency, spray polyurethane roofing foam systems are continuing to gain market share.

“BASF Corporation and the Conklin Company share the same fundamental commitment to quality and customer service. We are very excited to expand our business together in the North American commercial roofing market,” Conklin Company Owner, President and CEO Charles W. Herbster said, as quoted in a press release from Conklin.

Dave Heineman, former Governor of Nebraska and member of the Conklin Company Board of Directors, further stated:

“Conklin Company Independent Distributors and roofing contractors hold a special place in the free enterprise system as business owners, entrepreneurs, and drivers of the U.S. economy. The Conklin Company and BASF Corporation have a large impact on the roofing industry and our collaboration together, both now and well into the future, is a very powerful combination.”

BASF Corporation is a highly respected chemical manufacturing company based in Germany, with annual worldwide sales totaling over $70 billion.

Details regarding the expanded joint venture between Conklin and BASF Corporation discussed during the meeting will be released in the coming months.
