Whether you are a building owner or a roofing contractor, choosing the right commercial roofing solution for a building is one of the most important decisions to be made during construction. The right roofing solution will protect your investment for decades, and lower your overhead. The wrong roofing solution, can result in costly repairs, structural damage, increased energy costs, and quite possibly, the worst scenario, the need for a re-roofing job.
If you cut corners when installing your roof, you will ultimately suffer in the long run. You get what you pay for! A cheap roofing system may save you money during construction, but it will lead to untold expenses in the years to come. By choosing a quality solution from day one, you cut out unnecessary maintenance costs over the coming years, lowering your company overhead.
If your roof is damaged, leaks will occur. A leaking roof will cause damage to your building’s interior, including blistering paintwork and possible electrical problems. Fixing a leaking roof, most definitely, increases your overhead. And, a major concern, what happens if your stock gets water damaged? Replacing stock will eat away at your company’s profits.
Additionally, heating and cooling is a big expense for any company, regardless of industry or location. Poor insulation, as a result of a poor roofing solution, increases energy costs. Heat rises and escapes through a damaged roof, resulting in heating systems needing to be run at higher temperatures and for longer periods of time, in the winter months. If you pick a quality roofing solution, you will lower your heating bill and cut overhead in the long run.
In conclusion, when you choose a quality roofing solution, you ensure that you won’t need to replace the roof for years to come. Poor roofing systems age quicker and will need to be replaced after 20 years. A quality roofing system will last about 40 years. By going with quality from day one, your company won’t suffer from early re-roofing costs, ensuring lower overhead.
