Unveiling the Roof of the Matter

It’s no secret that commercial roofing solutions are an essential investment for many a business. This ‘raised’ realization has led to the emergence of a number of trends in the roofing industry. With this bird’s-eye view, we’ll establish the right skyline for your bank balance and beyond! Let’s have a concrete chat about the right roofing attire for your building!

Perennial Picks of the Roofing Ramp

According to the National Roofing Contractors Association, a commercial roof’s lifespan can hinge between 10 and 40 years. The trick, however, isn’t pulling a rabbit (or a roofer) out of a hat. It’s investing in quality materials and workmanship. Industrial roofing systems and commercial metal roofing, for instance, are two practical and sustainable solutions. Now, let’s continue this ‘rooftop rendezvous’ with the two titans causing a shake-up in the commercial roofing sphere.

Tackling Thermoplastic and Cool Roofing

Let’s cool things down. The U.S. Department of Energy reports that a cool roof can cut a building’s energy bills by about 15%. Such energy-efficient roofing solutions are a hot topic in the commercial sphere, offering cost savings and a lower carbon footprint.

On the other hand, thermoplastic polyolefin (TPO) is fast becoming the darling of the commercial roofing scene. It’s climbing the rank thanks to its durability, energy-efficiency, and ‘easy-peasy’ installation. That’s a flat-out win for commercial flat roofing.

Extending the Lifespan of a Roof

Maintenance and routine inspection play a fundamental role in lengthening the lifespan of a roof. Regular commercial roof maintenance and roof inspections can catch minor problems before they become costly repairs. Make sure to engage professional roofing services to get the job well done.

Keeping It Fluid with Waterproofing and Coatings

Commercial waterproofing solutions and roof coatings are essential elements in the longevity of your business’s rooftop wardrobe. They act as a seal, protecting your roof from the elements, and extend its lifespan, making it a sound investment.
