A well-maintained commercial roof means safety for you and your employees and the protection of valuable company assets. When you regularly maintain and repair your business’s roof, you’ll not only preserve your building’s integrity, but you’ll also prevent more extensive, costly repairs in the future.
Commercial Roof Repair in Phoenix
Phoenix, Arizona, is hot and dry for most of the year with occasional heavy rainfall, flash flooding, and dust storms. Choosing a roofing material that can stand up to our climate is another way to protect your business. The three types of commercial roofing most popular in the Valley are tile, tar and gravel, and polyurethane foam.
Commercial Tile Roofs
A tile roof can be the right choice for a business with a pitched roof or for one that looks more residential than commercial, such as some doctor’s offices, boutiques, spas, and lawyer’s offices. Tile made of concrete is often used for commercial applications because it’s affordable, durable, and energy-efficient. Tile is also available in ceramic (such as terracotta clay), composite, slate, steel, copper, aluminum, plastic, and polymer sand.
Tar & Gravel Roofs
Many of the commercial structures in Phoenix, Arizona, have tar and gravel roofs. The alternating layers of felt and bitumen topped with a final layer of gravel protect against water damage and extreme heat. One drawback is that they add weight to the building structure, this isn’t usually a problem and this roof type can last up to 30 years.
Polyurethane Foam Roofs
Polyurethane foam roofing is put down in a liquid form and can often be installed over existing roofing material. Once the polyurethane dries, it hardens and fills every available crack, creating a watertight barrier and exceptional UV protection. Like tar and gravel, it’s a perfect choice for flat roofs, and it lasts even longer: up to 40 or 50 years!
What Commercial Roof Repair Entails
Interior Building Inspection
The first thing your roofing contractor from Ultra Foam Roofing will do is check for signs of leaks, mold growth, and moisture intrusion. If water leaks and mold growth aren’t directly visible, other signs of roof damage may be indicators, including musty odors, stained walls or ceilings, or higher energy bills. We’ll also inspect for areas of cracked roof sheathing.
Exterior Roof Inspection
Gaps in flashing, cracked caulk, visible punctures, worn seams, and missing shingles are all signs that a commercial roof needs to be repaired. Even flat commercial roofs have a slight slope to allow draining. However, if there are uncorrected sagging areas, they can allow water to puddle for an extended period leading to deterioration and leaks.
Estimate For Repair
After we’ve noted any damage, we’ll give you a proposal for the necessary repairs with a breakdown detailing your roof’s condition and the estimated costs of materials and labor. We offer financing through Credit Union West. We’ll work with you during every step of the process, and we unconditionally guarantee every roof we install!
How the Roofing Process Works?
Once the repairs are agreed upon, we’ll remove any roofing material and damaged flashing, including the plywood underneath if it has been damaged. We will make the repairs as needed depending on the type of roof you have.
