Jimmy Kimmel’s street interviews seem to indicate a lot of us are flustered by simple questions. Here’s one: What is flat roof flashing? Stumped? We are here to help out!
When you’re new to owning or managing a commercial property, you don’t want to sound unprofessional. Yet when you chat with your facilities team or your commercial roofer, keeping up with flat roof terminology may be difficult. Never fear! Here are 13 roofing terms specific to low-slope, or flat roofing, to help you better understand your roof, your colleagues, and your roofer. Continue reading
Most adults have 206 bones in their bodies. Some of us have more, some have fewer. Why a varying number? From infancy at 300 bones to adulthood, some bones of our axial skeletons fuse. Human anatomy is complicated, no doubt. Flat roof anatomy, by contrast, should be easy. However, many facilities managers would fail the one-question quiz, “What layers are part of your flat roof?”
There’s a wide range of commercial roofing materials available today. Each material comes with a different lifespan, installation process, cost, maintenance needs, strengths, and weaknesses. If you need a new roof or have just started managing a building with a new-to-you roof, becoming familiar with the different commercial roofing materials will help you in future decision-making process.
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. The term is arbitrary until you attach “pond” to “commercial roof.” Then you never want that pond to become a lake. Ponding water is bad enough, and here is why. Continue reading
A commercial roof maintenance checklist is as handy as a grocery list when trying to squeeze five errands into a three-errand window of time. With a commercial roof maintenance checklist, however, every checklist leads to savings, not spending. Consider these ten steps to include to protect your Columbus-area roof, all without clipping coupons! Continue reading
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?
Your commercial building needs a reliable roof to withstand harsh elements like hailstorms for as long as possible. Continue reading
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?
As a commercial business owner or property manager, we know keeping your roof well maintained and in good condition for an extended period can be challenging.
The roof is arguably the most critical structure comprising your commercial or industrial property. Because of this, you must be confident your roofing contractor can maintain it correctly.
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?
1. Regular roof inspections can stop leaks before they start so you can avoid disruption of business happening in the property.
2. Preventative maintenance can extend the life a roof. Our Preventative Maintenance Program (PMP) can extend your commercial roof’s life up to 10 years!
3. Fixing existing damage now can save you money on future commercial roof repairs and replacements.
4. Allowing a roof to fall into disrepair can result in insurance or warranty voids.
5. Find a commercial roofing contractor you trust to deliver the service you expect.
