Commercial Metal Roofing

Metal Roofing for Commercial Buildings

It was bound to happen. Father Time has caught up with your commercial building’s roof. Rust, corrosion, storm, and hail damage — all these things detract from your building’s aesthetic and need to be addressed. As a building owner, your worries may include the time to fix your roof, the material choices that will give you the most life from your roof, and, of course, cost. You may find yourself thinking about a coating that will be a “band aid” — a short term fix to just get something done quickly. However, let us encourage you to look into a retrofit system, as it’s a reliable, permanent fix that will also make your building look more beautiful.

Retrofit Roof At-A-Glance 

  • Prolongs the life of your building

  • Fits over your existing roof

  • High quality, durable metal panels

  • Eco-Friendly as there is no need to tear off the existing roof

  • Cost-efficient

  • Energy efficient

  • Added insulation

A retrofit roof panel will reflect up to 88% of the sun’s rays, insulating the building and thus allowing for an energy-efficient roof that actually saves you money on your energy bills. As there’s no need to remove the existing roof, installing a retrofit system is environmentally-friendly, with almost no waste. A 15-year warranty ensures you the highest protection over the longest period of time, so you can go about your business with your mind at ease. Retrofit roofing systems have a service life of around 50 to 60 years, meaning it will likely last the life of the building, effectively eliminating future replacement costs.

Next Steps

Call us to set up a free consultation. We will come out and take a look at your roof to determine if your building would benefit from a retrofit roofing system. Remember — This could be the last roof you’ll ever need!

Oh Hail No

 

The Problem

We’re certain you’re tired of hearing about hail, as it’s talked about ad nauseam. Gosh, we’re sick of it, too! But it’s important to remember that it’s an undeniable part of life in Colorado. So what can be done about it? Do we hope and pray it won’t be too bad this year? Do we force a smile and pretend those hail divots on our roof and gutters don’t exist? How about we acquiesce and replace our roofs every other year. (The answer to all these rhetorical questions is a resounding NO)

The Solution

You know the sure things in life. In Colorado, it’s death, taxes, and hail. While we can’t help you with death and taxes, we’ve got you covered on the hail part.

3 Facts to Know About Flat Roofing

What do you know about roofs? They cover a home, are made of shingles and panels, and are pithed, right? Well for most roofs those three factors are the case, but not when it comes to flat roofing. Commercial buildings and many homes use flat roofs instead of traditional pitched roofing, and those flat roofs need a flat roof covering.

Many homeowners know the basics of pitched roofing, but few are aware of the large world of flat roofing that exists all around them. Heck, we like flat roofs, and we think you will too, so let’s learn more about flat roofing with some random knowledge and facts.

3 Facts for You to Know About Flat Roofing

Flat Roofs Aren’t Always Flat

In fact, no flat roofs are 100 percent flat. What happens to moisture on a flat surface? It stays there. For roofing purposes, all flat roofs have at least a few degrees of slope to allow water and debris to drain off.

In the roofing, world slope is measured in rising/run every 12 inches. For example, a roof that rises six inches vertically for every foot it runs would be a 6/12 slope. For roofing, a roof is considered flat if it has a slope of 1/12 or less.

You Can Redo Your Flat Roof Without Redoing Your Flat Roof

The beauty about flat roofing is that you can revamp your flat roof without redoing the whole thing. Flat roofs are perfect candidates for roof coatings that can add more years to your flat roof. Roof coatings are much cheaper than roof replacement, so you flat roof could last even longer with the help of a roof coating.

Flat Roofs Are Easy to Turn Green

Flat roofs are transformed into blue, cool, or green roofs, and on top of that, they’re perfect for solar panels. This article isn’t long enough to list what all those colored roofs mean, but all you need to know is that flat roofs are simple to transform into environmentally-conscious roofing.

When most people think roofs, they think pitched roofs, but we’d be lost without our flat roofs too. Flat roofs have some unique properties and interesting facts that make them different from the shingle. If you have a flat roofing project in the works, talk to a local and reputable flat roofing contractor to learn more about the unique properties of flat roofing.
