Commercial Roof Replacement & Repair Experts
While a commercial and residential roofing system each have the same function – protecting a property and its occupants from the elements – these two systems may function quite differently. For one, most commercial roofs are flat. While there are some residential roofing systems that are flat as well, the majority have a steep slope.
The benefit of steep-slope roofs is that they easily shed moisture. As rain or snow falls, the moisture will quickly run off into the gutters and move away from the home. Flat roofs are quite different. They may not be completely flat but the slope is very slight. If a commercial flat roof is not properly installed, water can pool on the roof surface, which will eventually cause the roofing material to break down and allow water to leak into the property.
Avoid these issues by hiring TEO Construction, a qualified local roof replacement and repair company. We are commercial property specialists with many years of experience.
The Importance of a Commercial Roof Maintenance Plan
The maintenance required for a commercial roof will depend on the material. For example, metal roofs are extremely durable and require minimal maintenance. But no matter what type of material you have installed, it will still require a roofer to inspect it on a regular basis to find and address small issues before they become worse. A small leak can quickly grow and damage inventory and/or equipment, or cause safety hazards for customers and employees.
It’s important to have a professional inspect your roof at least once a year and after every major weather event. TEO Construction can put together a comprehensive inspection and maintenance plan for your commercial roofing system.
