If you own a commercial building, you know the importance of maintaining it to the highest standards. Providing a clean and safe work environment for your employees, clients, or lessees depends a great deal on the condition of your commercial roof. However, commercial roofing is not a subject that most people are well versed on. Fortunately, the roofing experts at HC Anderson Roofing Company, Inc. have the answers to some common questions regarding commercial roofing.
How do I know if my commercial building needs a new roof?
If there is unexplained mold, ugly water stains, cracked, curled or missing shingles, you may need a new roof. We can help you determine the best plan of action to best protect your building.
How much does a new commercial roof cost?
Each situation has its own unique challenges that cause the prices to fluctuate. There are many factors that contribute to the price of your new commercial roof. Some of these factors include: the size of your roof, the condition of the existing roof, roof penetrations, type of warranty, and choice of membrane, insulation, and installation.
How long does it take to install a new commercial roof?
The time for the project is dependent on several variables such as the type of roof, the size of the roof, existing damage, weather, inspections, and permits. Each job is unique and could take a few days to a few weeks.
Can my new commercial roofing be installed over my old roof?
It is usually not recommended to install a new roof right on top of an old one. You can’t be certain that trapped moisture isn’t underneath your old roof without tearing it up and replacing it completely.
