Over 50 Years Of Combined Roofing Experience

If you’re in the market for commercial roofing services, it’s important to know that there are hundreds of various roofing materials to choose from. Each type of roofing material caters to different needs and aesthetic preferences, but how do you know which is right for your commercial project?

Metal roofing stands out for its durability, energy efficiency, and low maintenance, with options like standing seam panels or metal shingles providing sleek and modern appearances. Asphalt shingles remain a popular choice, offering cost-effectiveness, ease of installation, and a variety of styles. Roofing tiles, whether made of clay or concrete, provide a timeless and elegant aesthetic with excellent durability and resistance to fire and weather. Roof coatings serve as versatile solutions applied over existing roofing materials to enhance performance. Reflective coatings improve energy efficiency, while protective coatings can extend the lifespan of the roof.

Commercial Services FAQs

How do I determine the right commercial roofing material for my business?

Choosing the right commercial roofing material for your business in Louisiana involves considering several factors unique to the region’s climate and environmental conditions. In Louisiana, our climate is characterized by high temperatures, humidity, and occasional severe storms – which significantly reduces your options when it comes to commercial roofing materials. To get the most detailed information about your options, contact our experienced commercial roofing professionals for a consultation!

What is the typical lifespan of different commercial roofing materials?
The lifespan of commercial roofing materials varies depending on what is used. Metal roofing can last 40 years or more, while asphalt shingles may have a lifespan of 20-30 years. Single-ply, EPDM membrane for flat roofs generally last between 25-30 years. Regular maintenance, prompt repairs, and applying protective coatings can extend the lifespan of commercial roofs.
How do roof coatings contribute to the performance of a commercial roof?
Roof coatings offer multiple benefits, including enhanced waterproofing, increased reflectivity for energy efficiency, and protection against UV rays. They also act as a barrier against weathering, preventing premature deterioration of roofing materials. The flexibility of roof coatings accommodates temperature fluctuations – preventing cracks and damage. Additionally, ease of maintenance, cost-effectiveness as an alternative to replacement, and environmentally friendly formulations make roof coatings a valuable investment for commercial properties, ensuring durability, resilience, and sustainable roofing solutions.
What steps should I take to prepare my commercial roof for hurricane season?
To prepare your commercial roof for hurricane season, start with a comprehensive inspection to identify and address any existing issues. Secure loose items, trim overhanging branches, and clear drainage systems of debris to ensure proper water flow. Consider reinforcing the roof’s resistance to high winds by installing wind-resistant roofing materials or accessories. Additionally, inspect the roof’s perimeter flashing and seal any gaps to prevent water infiltration. Perform routine maintenance to address potential vulnerabilities, and consult with roofing professionals for expert advice on reinforcing your roof against the specific challenges posed by hurricanes.
How do I address ponding water on my commercial roof?
If you have ponding water on your commercial roof, start by identifying the underlying cause, such as inadequate drainage or structural issues. Install tapered insulation to promote proper water runoff and consider improving the overall drainage system on the roof. Applying roof coatings can also help create a more seamless surface that prevents water from pooling. If the issue persists, consult with roofing professionals to assess the conditions of your roof and determine the most effective solution, which may include repairs, drainage improvements, or adjustments to the roof’s slope. Addressing ponding water promptly is crucial to prevent potential damage and ensure the longevity of your commercial roofing system.
