GUIDANCE FOR CHOOSING THE RIGHT COMMERCIAL ROOF
2
  • If youre looking to construct a new building for
    a commercial project, or wish to renovate an
    existing building, youre no doubt wondering what
    type of roofing material you should choose. While
    budget may be at the top of your list, youll
    also need to think about what industry your
    business is in, and where its situated.
  • To help you make a more informed choice when
    replacing an existing commercial roof, or having
    a new one installed, here is a brief guide

3
  • Think about the type of business youre running
  • If yours is a retail enterprise, for example, you
    might want to consider having an energy efficient
    roof made out of Flexion, or TPO (Thermoplastic
    Polyolefin), while if youre operating a large
    warehouse with no requirement for temperature
    control, you could opt for EPDM (ethylene
    propylene diene monomer) an affordable roofing
    solution used by many such buildings. Should
    yours be a business that uses harsh chemicals, on
    the other hand, youll doubtless require adequate
    ventilation and an exhaust system, in which case
    PVC (polyvinyl chloride) might be the most
    effective choice.

4
  • What is the existing roof like?
  • If youre replacing a roof thats already there,
    you may have the option of simply having a new
    roofing system applied directly on top of the
    existing one (enabling you to make significant
    cost and time savings), but it might not be an
    appropriate choice if PVC has been used in the
    original roof.
  • Youll also need to think carefully about vents,
    air conditioning units and skylights that might
    have a direct impact upon the application and
    maintenance of your chosen roofing material.

5
  • Whats around your commercial building, and what
    is the climate like?
  • Youll need not only to consider the buildings
    surrounding yours and its overall location, but
    the climate, too. Maybe your business is situated
    in a large green, open space, or faces many
    extremes of weather, such as snow, regular rains
    or intense sunlight. Metal is a durable roofing
    material that suits many businesses facing harsh
    weather conditions for most of the year, as is
    EPDM, which can easily adapt to temperature
    fluctuations.

6
  • For a building with forests surrounding it or
    trees close by, you might want to opt for TPO,
    which is puncture resistant and durable.
  • Whatever roofing material you choose, whether
    your building is in the middle of nowhere,
    surrounded by other buildings or right in a
    wildlife conservancy area, choosing an energy
    efficient and environmentally friendly material,
    is always going to be the best choice for a
    multitude of reasons.

7
  • Do you need licensed roofing contractors?
  • For many states, only a licensed roofing
    contractor will be able to install your new
    commercial roof, so be sure to check the
    requirements for your state, before hiring
    anyone.
  • How long do you plan to remain in the building?
  • For some business owners, the move to a new
    building may be a temporary one, and investing in
    a replacement roof, might not make good financial
    sense. In these instances, a recoating or some
    minor repairs might be enough to tide you over
    until you sell it and move elsewhere.

8
  • Alternatively, even if you dont plan to remain
    in the building for the foreseeable future, a new
    roof could help you sell it for more in the
    future, and even help you sell it quicker. A
    professionally installed roof is something that
    commercial buyers will definitely take into
    consideration, so this is worth thinking about if
    planning to sell the building.
  • There are many options available to you when
    replacing a commercial roof (or having one
    installed from scratch), and a consultation with
    a qualified, licensed roofing company in your
    area, like Atlas Roofing will help you make an
    even more informed choice.
