Many clients do not realize the differences between commercial roofing and residential roofing. Accent Roofing has been successfully inspecting, repairing, restoring, and replacing commercial roofs in Amarillo since 2001.
Commercial roofing systems vary greatly from traditional residential roofing options. Most residential roofs are simply asphalt shingles, wood shingles, metal roofing, or maybe concrete tiles. These types of roofing can be easily replaced or repaired in a short time, usually a couple of days. Commercial roofing systems offer many more choices and require a longer time investment to repair or install them correctly.
Options for commercial roofing systems include Built Up Roofs, or BUR. These types of roofs are more commonly known as hot tar and gravel systems. A combination of hot tar and gravel are used to create a simple, yet effective roof that is able to withstand the Texas Panhandle weather.
Another type of commercial roofing is a metal panel roof system. Just as the name implies, the roof is composed of metallic panes. Other commercial roofing systems include two ply modified bitumen torch down rubber roof systems. There are also single ply membranes such as TPO, PVC, and EPDM systems. A final option is a spray applied roof coating.
As you can easily see, commercial roofing requires more knowledge and expertise than a typical residential roof. Business owners will want to choose a company with experience that is willing to answer questions and help make the best choice for your commercial roof. Accent Roofing of Amarillo specializes in the flat roofing systems available for commercial use and is committed to customer satisfaction.
After determining the best roofing system for your commercial building, the system must be installed. Commercial roofs can take over a month to properly install. Many times, commercial buildings are much larger than residential homes. In addition, commercial roofing systems are more complex and difficult to install. Roofing applied in layers requires time for products to cure, settle, or glue.
If your commercial roofing is leaking or in need of repair, it is important to contact a professional. Unlike residential roofing, patching a commercial roof can be very tricky. Flat roofing leaks are more difficult to diagnose. The leak could extend through several layers of roofing. In some cases, a patch could solve the problem. Depending on the problem, you may need to apply new coating to the roof or even replace the roof. The problem could also be solved simply by applying new flashings. Solving a commercial roofing problem requires different skills and experience than solving your residential roofing issues.
Living in the Texas Panhandle puts incredible stress on roofing. Severe weather, high winds, and temperatures consistently above 90 degrees add up to wear and tear on your commercial roofing. Your roof does not have to be an added stress to your overful plate. A well put together and maintained commercial roofing system should last well over ten years. Unfortunately, some contractors may cut corners in an effort to lower costs. This can cause roofing issues much sooner than expected.
