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?
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.
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.
