Division 7 Roofing crew stands with our new hire! Division 7 Roofing has made the commitment to our tag line, “Roofing with Integrity” in every aspect of our business and we always have. Roofing has traditionally not been a “female” field but that is quickly changing. Women are starting to become a driving force in the roofing industry with the newly formed councils of National Women in Roofing (NWiR) around the country. Division 7 Roofing is excited to be a part of the movement and welcome women who want an opportunity.

Your Commercial Roof Is Now 100% Deductible

The new tax reform bill is passing along savings to commercial building owners who make qualified real estate improvements to their properties. Formerly, commercial building owners were only allowed to expense improvements made to the interior of their buildings. Recently the new tax reform bill put into effect in 2018 allows expensing of improvements to the structural and exterior portions of non-residential buildings including roofs, HVAC systems, fire protection, alarm systems and security systems.

According to Toni Nitti, a Forbes.com contributor, “The Section 179 limitation will be increased to $1,000,000 for tax years beginning after 2017, with the phase-out beginning at $2,500,000 of qualifying assets placed in service.” To read more of Toni’s in-depth article on the tax reform click here.

Does Division 7 Roofing do residential work?

Division 7 Roofing does not have a residential division. We focus on low-slope commercial single-ply roofs. Although that is our focus, Division 7 Roofing does repair and do preventive maintenance on commercial low-sloping and sloped commercial shingle roofs. At times Division 7 Roofing does refer work out to other residential roofing contractors if we find that we would not be the best contractor for the job. However, we are always willing to come out and look at your roof and give our professional opinion.

What should I know about my commercial roofing contractor?

There are many commercial roofing contractors out there and you want to be sure you are working with one that is qualified and knowledgeable. Ensure they have a good reputation in the industry. Be sure to also understand which manufacturer’s material are they licensed to install? There are many different materials out there and they are tiered. Top commercial roofing material manufacturers are Firestone, GAF, Carlisle, Johns-Manville, Sika-Sarnafil, Garland and Dow. How many of these is your commercial roofing contractor licensed to install and repair? Ask for a reference list. A good contractor will have a good reference list of companies they have worked for and should be willing to share that information. Contractors are always proud of the work that they do. Look on a company’s website and find pictures of projects they have completed. Your roofing contractor should also be in professional associations. Professional associations give contractors access to updated safety trainings, industry updates and standards, awards and recognition.
