Reasons to Have a Commercial Roof Torn Off

What are some reasons to have your commercial roof torn off? If the existing roof is really old, neglected, falling apart, waterlogged, and/or the metal deck below is rusted, then it’s time. If there are more than two roof layers and you want to add another, that’s not viable because the weight would be too much– so it’s time to have a layer or two torn off. In order to preserve the structural integrity of your building, it might be time for a tear off followed by a new roof.

New roofs often have better energy efficiency, the latest waterproofing technologies, and long-term warranties. They’ll also look better, aesthetically.

Finally, a tear off can be the smart thing to do in order to avoid trapping any moisture in between layers. Trapped moisture leads to rot, mold and leaks.

Signs You Need a New Commercial Roof 

What are some signs you need a new commercial roof?

If you have water leaking into the building, through the roof, when it rains, then it’s time for a new roof.  If you’ve noticed water spots or signs of mold on the ceiling, there could be a problem. Also, if you smell mold at/near the roof, that’s not good.

Do you notice blistering/bubbling on the outside of you roof? How about shingle damage? Is there moss growth? Check the roof membrane for bald spots or lifting. If you’ve got bent, dislodged or damaged flashing, that could allow water in, leading to trouble. Are your downspouts clogged? Is the roof really, really old? These are just a couple reasons you might need a new commercial roof.

The Benefits of a New Commercial Roof

What are some benefits of having Ray Roofing install a new commercial roof in the Northeast Ohio area? Well, you’ll improve the safety of your building. You’ll also increase your building’s storm resistance. Materials and installation techniques of today differ from those in the past– technology and expertise make for more storm-resistant roofs. Water-tight seals, properly fastened materials, and new flashing, joints, and gaskets mean you’ll have less to worry about even when storms roll through the area.

Under the new tax code created by the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017, you don’t have to depreciate your roof over 39 years– instead you can benefit from the Section 179 deal regarding accelerated depreciation. So, a new roof can equal improved tax options and incentives for your business.

Finally, in an era when “going green” is popular, a new roof offers increased energy efficiency. The new roof can lead to decreased energy costs for both heating and cooling. Depending on what type of roof you choose, you might be able to call your building “sustainable” or “eco-friendly,” and let clients and customers know you care about the environment.

Reasons to Use a Specialized Commercial Roofing Contractor
