Your roof is designed to protect your property, the occupants, and everything inside from rainwater to wind. So, it’s essential to keep water from ponding on your flat roof. When left to sit for long, ponding water can trigger various problems, such as plant growth, roof leaks, and further damage to your building’s structure. Consult a reputable commercial roofing contractor to establish an appropriate flat roof drainage system to help avoid this.
The folks at WYTV out of Youngstown assure us you can find a difference between a pond and a lake. Ponds are shallower and smaller than lakes.

What is the “best” cuisine? Italian, Greek, or French? It’s a nonsensical question; everyone has different tastes and needs. The same is true with roofing. The best material to use for a flat roof is what works for you, your budget, and your building. The decision is not just about looks, commercial roof replacement costs, or installation ease. The search for the “best” commercial roofing material is easier when you understand your choices.
A glance at the National Weather Service tells us the Columbus area has experienced some heavy weather just about every year for decades. Perhaps you recall the Blizzard of 1978, the June 2, 1990 tornadoes, or the President’s Day snowstorm of 2010. When a severe storm damages your commercial roof, what should you do?
You already know you’ll need a quality roofing contractor for your commercial building. Except, how do you choose one? Not every roofing contractor does equal work, so you could be taking a gamble no matter what you pick. There’s the money matter too. If one charges more, does it mean it’s higher quality? Or could someone be scamming you? How do you know a contractor consistently does good work?
Most commercial building owners do not look at their daily schedules and think, “I don’t have enough to do today!” But, if that is you, these commercial roof maintenance tips may save you time, money, and headaches.
When it comes to getting your roof repaired or replaced, it’s hard work that has to get done correctly. A commercial roofing contractor may cost more than your favorite general contractor. This may make you reconsider and hire the cheaper option so you can save money upfront. But what about the long term?

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.
