Commercial Building Flat Roof Replacement
Here on Long Island, there are plenty of commercial buildings with flat roofs. From office buildings to mini malls, any building with a flat roof is in need of keeping their roof intact. Unsightly leaks can cause mold growth and other interior damage which could scare away potential customers and clients. Although it’s largely dependent on the material used to coat a commercial flat roof, most flat roofs have a lifespan of a few decades. As your roof ages, more and more leaks will begin to occur until there comes a time that it makes more sense to replace it. Leaks in a roof are just one sign that your flat roof is failing however and if you are unsure, we can come take a look. There are many options you can do when replacing a flat roof. There have been rapid advancements in the chemicals used to treat roofs, and as such we recommend strongly considering a flat roof replacement even if it isn’t that old yet. Contrary to what many believe this is not nearly as costly as you may initially think.
Best Flat Roofing Options
Silicone Roof Coating is one of the best new options on the market today. GacoFlex S20 series silicone roof coating is the brand that we recommend. This amazing coating simply covers the entire roof and covers any holes or blemishes that were there before. It is simple to add and provides amazing benefits such as reflection of the sun’s rays to cut cooling costs in the summer, and incredible toughness and water resistance. When installed by a professional such as the experts at Cover All Solutions, this amazing product can last an incredibly long time and offer great benefits.
EPDM Roofing Systems are another great option when replacing your commercial roof. EPDM stands for ethylene propylene diene terpolymer which is pretty much a fancy name for a very durable rubber layer. For this option, we prefer Firestone SA Rubber Guard. We like this option because it does not require an additional adhesive. For this reason, it is a safer chemical to work with and does not smell as strongly for as long as other EPDM options. Firestone SA Rubber Guard is also more of a precise option than other options because of its simplicity. In a pinch, it can also be installed in conditions that other roofing options simply cannot because of their chemical composition. Firestone SA Rubber Guard has the ability to be installed on roofs in temperatures as low as 20°F.
If your commercial roof is leaking there is no time to hesitate. Not only can water get in and damage company property, but a commercial roof in very poor condition may also end up caving in which could result in someone being injured. If your commercial property needs a new roof, there is no time to delay. Give Cover All Solutions a call at (516) 796-1952.
