Every commercial roof will eventually need to be replaced. Regardless of what materials were used in a roof’s installation, weather and exterior forces take their toll over time. In some cases a new commercial roof is a better investment than a perpetual series of repairs that put a Band-Aid on the problem rather than solving it. When patches and leak prevention are no longer enough, it is important to choose a company with a reputation for providing quality materials and skilled workmanship.
How Commercial Roof Replacement Works
Thanks to today’s techniques, commercial roofs are crafted to last for decades. For the commercial roof replacement cost, you will see advantages such as strength, durability, and energy efficiency.
Two common techniques are used to replace a commercial flat roof:
1. Tear-off: removes any existing roofing materials underneath
2. Re-covering: a new membrane is installed over an existing one
Our experienced technicians will inspect your current roof and document any damage to the structures itself as well as look for any deterioration in the existing deck. During our inspection, we can determine whether your existing roof decking and support structures are in healthy enough condition to support a re-cover or if a tear-off is a better solution.
Featured Project: Chavez Restoration – Topeka, KS
Chavez Restoration has been serving Topeka and Lawrence communities for over 50 years. As a leader and advocate in their industry, they have seen a lot of growth over the years. As they expanded, so did their need for space. Their original office was added onto several times and tied into another building entirely.
“The additions presented challenges,” said Dave Keating, Eaton Roofing & Exteriors Topeka Operations Manager. “The metal panels were different on each particular structure, but there wasn’t a problem we couldn’t solve. The existing roofs had many leaks from where the buildings were tied into each other and the roof fasteners were leaking.”
The entire commercial metal roof system is made of 24 and 26 gauge steel totaling 23,000 sq. feet of roofing. After inspection, the product our team determined best to use was Firestone Gaco Flex S4200 High Adhesion 100% Silicone Coating in white. There are many benefits of choosing silicone coating.
- The project was completed within 10 days from start to finish and that included allowing for adequate dry time, as well as any unplanned inclement weather. On the other hand, a replacement would have taken between 30 to 60 days..
- The reflective coating reduces cooling costs.
- Gaco Flex coatings protect well against ponding water.
- The cost to recover vs. replacement is less than half.
- The business was able to stay open with no interruptions.
- Firestone offers extended No Damage Limit warranties.
