Santa's Landing Pad: A Roofing Blog

Why do you need a strong roof on your home? To support Santa's sleigh, of course! In a more realistic sense, however, a strong roof is important for your home's protection. It keeps the wind and rain outside, and it also insulates your home against the chill of winter and the heat of summer. Most people think of roofs as being made from shingles, but roofers can make a strong roof from slate, tile, metal, or an array of other materials, too. We hope that as you read this roofing blog, you gain a lot of knowledge about the profession and about roofs in general.

A Seamless Roof Might Be Right for Your Business

When it comes to commercial roofing, building owners have a lot of options to choose from. Even more important, is that it is always a good idea to go through all of your options, including a seamless roof. A seamless roof might not get as much attention as some of the other commercial roof options, but it is an option that is worth taking a closer look at. Learn more about whether or not this option is right for you. 

Long-Term Leak Prevention

One of the greatest threats to any type of roof is a water leak. When a roof fails at its ability to keep water out, and a leak forms along the roof surface, the consequences are lengthy and costly. On the low end of the range, you could have minor water stains, but on the opposite end, you could have significant structural damage. Seamless roofs offer a superior level of leak protection. The membrane design of this roofing style creates a literal seamless barrier along the surface, which leaves nowhere for the water to seep through. As a result, you get a roof that protects your building from water leaks in both the short and long term.

Little-to-No Demolition Costs

It would not be honest to not state that replacing a roof on a commercial building is an investment. However, a considerable part of this investment involves demo. With many roofing styles, you must first remove the old roof materials before the new materials can be installed. An excellent thing about a seamless roof is the fact that it does not require a demo. This unique roofing option can safely and efficiently be installed over your existing roof. As a result, you have the opportunity to lower your overall expenses.

Increased Climate Control

Heating and cooling costs likely make up a sizeable portion of your building's operating costs. So, if there is an opportunity to save money in these areas, you would likely be interested. The membrane design of this roof style does not just keep water out, but it also does an excellent job of adding insulation and minimizing the threat of air leaks. As a result, less air from the outside will seep into your building and less of your climate-controlled air will seep out. The temperature inside the building remains better regulated and the company saves money.

If you are still on the fence about whether a seamless roof is right for you, it is a good idea to reach out to a commercial roof contractor for further assistance.
