Benefits Of A New Commercial Roof For Your Business
Commercial roofing is an integral component of a multi-story commercial building. It protects the building from natural weather, keeps it cool or warm from rain and sun, prevents damage due to water damage, and secures its contents. A Charleston WV roofer must be able to properly assess the roofing needs of a commercial building and make sure that the roofer selected will meet all the requirements needed for the installation. The roofer will typically evaluate the roof’s issues, discuss the budget, and then give a price quote on how much they will charge to fix the roofing issue. If the commercial roofer determines that the problem is too big and expensive to fix, they will recommend to the client a roofing contractor that they work with.
Commercial roofing usually involves two types of roofing: flat roofing and low slope roofing. The roof is built upon a Styrofoam frame, wood, or plastic on a flat roof with a seamless top surface. Flat roofs are popularly used for structures that require the least amount of maintenance, like shopping malls and office buildings. A low slope roof is built over a concrete slab, with some variation of the concrete type, such as pouring concrete, gravel, sand, or clay. These slabs are set in place by fastening them to metal ladders raised through the soil on a steep slope.
After a commercial roof inspection is performed, the inspector will provide the client with a report detailing what repairs need to be made and the recommended budget. The client can choose to make the repairs themselves or hire a commercial roofing contractor to make them. If the problem is too big and costly to fix, the commercial roofing system should be replaced. However, if there is not enough damage to warrant replacing the roof, only repairing the repairs is recommended. If there is no problem with the roofing at all, no repairs are necessary.
