Most Texans are used to the high temperatures and humidity that come along with living here. This summer has been particularly brutal, with feels-like temperatures regularly running into the triple-digits. However, roofs must regularly combat hot and cold temps, wind, rain, hail, and more in the Lone Star State. Heck, now and again, they must even fend off a little ice or snow.
When shingles, metals, tiles, or membranes fail, the destruction can be devastating. Sure, sometimes, only a small drip occurs that can be contained with a bowl, pitcher, or bucket. However, on other occasions, rainwater pours through the roofs of buildings. It soaks into carpet, padding, and insulation. The presence of H2O indoors can also equal broken computers, tablets, printers, and other electronics.
Leaks ruin ceiling tiles, drywall, and so much more. Therefore, proprietors should take care of their commercial roofs so that they will take care of them. A roofer may be able to help business owners when the following scenarios arise.
A Total Roof Replacement
Total roof replacements are sometimes necessary for various reasons. For instance, a natural disaster could rip a building's roof off, leaving the property owner with no choice but to replace it. Age is another factor that determines when a covering is ready to be replaced. After a commercial roof reaches its lifespan, repairs and patches no longer do the trick to keep them maintained. Don't fret if you have no idea how old or what kind of shape your structure's roof is in. Instead, contact our office and let us have a look. We can help you determine if a total roof replacement, or repairs, are a better fit for you.
Speaking Of Repairs
Commercial roofing is not all about total roof replacements. Commercial roofers maintain covers over their lifetimes to keep them in tip-top shape. They have the experience and know-how to apply fixes when problems occur. Annual inspections allow the professionals to check for missing shingles, incorrect slopes, loose flashings, etc. Then again, the individuals can come out as needed to make repairs. Please, don't hesitate to call if you have a drip, leak, or need preventative maintenance services.
A Few Reasons To Avoid DIY Roof Repairs And Replacements
Business owners must be careful when climbing ladders or using machinery to get on top of their commercial roofs. Falls can leave them with injuries, or even worst, claim their lives. So, if for nothing else, allow a roofing contractor to handle roofing duties, to avoid catastrophes. They have the proper safety equipment and adequate experience to complete jobs safely. A proprietor that makes his or her own repair may fail to fix their leak. Then, they might still have to call a roofer, which wastes their time and money. Not to mention, the individuals could have damages to pay for as well.
