Commercial Roof Replacement

Common Commercial Roofing Repairs

The roofing system on your commercial property is complicated and will, over time, require timely commercial roofing repairs.. If you suspect that your roof has a problem that requires a repair or replacement, you need to consult with a roofing professional. The seasoned roofing expert can examine your roof, analyze the problem, and report to you what they find out. They can recommend the best course of action to address the problem. Even if the damage seems minor, it is best not to delay contacting a licensed roofing expert because small damages can lead to bigger problems down the road. Here are some examples of common repairs for the roof.


The shingles on your roof make up the first layer of defense against the harsh elements from the weather. Over time, the shingles can lose their granules and become bald. The lack of granules means water can no longer be directed from the roof to the roof gutters, and water can seep through the roof more easily. Another problem is shingles that have broken, cracked, curled, shrunk, or that have completely fallen off. This exposes the roof’s decking and will allow water to penetrate into the wood, causing wood rot and harboring mold growth.

Commercial Roof Repair CompaniesFlashing

At any point where the roof meets a vertical surface, such as around dormers, chimneys, and walls, an experienced roofer will use zinc alloys or galvanized steel to seal around the area where they meet. Unfortunately, some contractors with poor workmanship do not pay attention to this detail, which can results in a seal that fails. This is a vulnerable spot where water can leak through the roof. Low quality work like this will lead to more costly repairs for you.

Gutters & Drains

Gutters beneath the edge of your roof are intended to catch rainwater from your roof and direct the water to the ground. However, when the gutters are filled to plant debris and other things, this can obstruct the water from properly channeling through the gutters and onto the ground. The gutters cannot support the weight of water and soggy debris. During winter time, this material can freeze inside, causing bigger jams. The ideal solution is to have your gutters cleaned two times a year. This can be done when you hire a roofing professional to inspect your roof on a regular basis.


Signs of water leakage include water stains on the walls, water pooling, or puddles on the floor. When water stains start to appear, there is already water damage in hidden areas behind the walls. It is important that you contact a professional roofer right away to identify the location of the roof leak and to fix the problem effectively so your business property will not sustain further damage.

Commercial Metal Roof Repair

Commercial Metal Roof Repair Options – Repair, Restore or Replace?

Building managers and owners have three options when it comes to commercial metal roof repair. They can either restore the roof, repair it, or replace it with a new roofing assembly.

As such, if you own or manage a building and the roof system on it is either leaking or has a problem, you have the option to either replace, repair or restore it. Here is a quick look at what each of these options entails.

Dependable Commercial Metal Roof Repair Contractors

Option #1: Maintain and Repair

Commercial Metal Roof Repair ContractorsMetal roofing systems have an estimated lifespan of 30 years – or even more if the system is made of high-quality materials and was properly installed. The good thing about metal roof systems is that most of them are relatively easy to repair and maintain.

The key to ensuring your metal roof system lasts long is to make sure that you review it regularly. That way, it becomes easier to spot issues and deal with them before they get worse. Addressing issues, such as oxidation, that affect metal roofing systems early can help lower costs. At the same time, doing maintenance work like locating and tightening fasteners that have started to fail can help reduce the risk of your roof leaking, increasing its lifespan.

Option #2: Restoration

As most metal roofs start to age, they start to develop leaks, which, if not addressed in time, become worse, causing serious damage to your roof and increasing the scope of work that will need to be done to rectify the problem. You have two options when it comes to replacing a water-damaged roof – you can either replace it or restore it. But since replacing an entire metal roof system is time-consuming and expensive, the next best option is to restore it. However, it’s worth noting that the window to commission a metal roof restoration project is typically very small, so you need to act fast.

Restoring a metal roof involves a few steps that include dealing with some of the deficiencies mentioned earlier, i.e., applying a rust inhibitor and replacing or re-tightening loose fasteners. Additional repairs to penetrations and details might be necessary. Once you are done with repairs, then the next thing you need to do is to apply a protective coat on the surface of your roofing system.

You have two options when it comes to metal roofing coating materials – urethane coating and acrylic coating. While both options work well, each one has its pros and cons. Get in touch with a metal roof system professional now to learn more about metal roofing coatings.

Option #3: Replacement

Metal retrofit systems are a relatively new way of replacing metal roof systems and are generally used to replace damaged low-slope metal roofing systems. The retrofit system is typically installed over a structural metal roof and uses the existing roofing system as its metal deck.
