As a commercial or industrial premises owner, your building structure is one of your most valuable assets. Protecting it from the elements is essential to ensure its longevity and maintain its value, and there is no better way to achieve this than with a well-maintained and durable roof. From energy-efficiency, to increased property value, our roofing services are a long-lasting investment in your premises and business, so read on to explore how our solutions will protect your building for years to come.
The roof is one of the most critical components of your commercial building. It protects your property and everything inside it from the elements, including rain, snow, wind, and extreme temperatures, and ensures the longevity and continued value of your building.
Here are some reasons why a long-lasting roof is an essential investment for business premises across all industries:
⦁ Prevents Water Damage – A good weatherproof roofing system will prevent water from penetrating your building and causing water damage to your property and equipment. This includes rainfall, snow, and leaks from broken gutters, all of which will stall operations and cause unforeseen and expensive damage.
⦁ Enhances Energy-Efficiency – An energy-efficient roof will help reduce your energy costs by keeping your building cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter, as well as preventing heat from escaping. This also allows you to control the temperature of your premises, which is especially important if your premises house food items, perishable goods, temperature-sensitive products, or medical equipment. This also allows you to maintain an optimum temperature for your employees, preventing them from becoming overheated or excessively cold, maintaining employee satisfaction and maintaining productivity throughout the year.
⦁ Protects Equipment – Your roof protects everything inside your building, including expensive equipment, machinery, and your employees. A damaged or leaking roof can cause significant damage to your equipment and lead to costly repairs, as well as bringing your operations to a standstill.
⦁ Prevents Costly Damages – By investing in a high-quality roof, you can prevent costly damages and repairs caused by leaks and other structural issues. A damaged roof also presents a significant health and safety hazard if your premises contain a lot of electrical equipment or hazardous substances that can cause damage if exposed to water.
⦁ Increases property value – A well-maintained and durable roof will maintain and even increase the value of your property, making it more attractive to potential buyers or tenants and keeping money in your business.
Your commercial roof is exposed to the elements 24/7, and over time it can start showing signs of wear and tear. It is important to be aware of these following signs and to call us in to repair or replace your roof before your premises and equipment become excessively damaged:
⦁ Roof leaks – If you notice water stains on your ceiling or walls, it is a sign that your roof is leaking and needs attention.
⦁ Cracks or tears – Cracks or tears in your roof can allow water to seep in and cause damage to the structure of your building. These cracks might not be immediately visible, so be sure to routinely check your roof for any damages.
⦁ Missing or damaged shingles – Missing or damaged shingles can expose your roof to the elements and cause leaks.
⦁ Sagging or uneven roof – A sagging or uneven roof can indicate structural damage and requires immediate attention, as this may be caused by excess water being trapped on top of the roof.
If you notice any of these signs, be sure to call in our team to assess the damage and advise on the best course of action.
The installation of a commercial roofing system is a complex process that requires the expertise of our team of expert installation contractors. Here are the steps involved in the process:
⦁ Inspection – The first step is to inspect your existing roof to determine its condition and identify any issues that need to be addressed.
⦁ Removal of old material – If your roof needs to be replaced entirely rather than just repaired, then the existing or damaged roof materials will need to be carefully removed by our experienced team.
⦁ Preparation – The roof deck will be prepared for the installation of the new system, which protects your premises, equipment, and business whilst the new roof is installed.
⦁ Installation – The new roof system will be installed, including insulation, finishing, and other components. We repair slate and tiled roofs, as well as the roofs of listed or period buildings, with either partial or complete recladding solutions.
⦁ If your roof is flat, this poses particular risks of leaking or damage. We offer a specialist weatherproof roofing service, which involves applying a waterproof coat, known as a PU coating, for such roofs, which prevents the roof from becoming waterlogged or prone to sagging.
⦁ Final inspection – Once the installation is complete, a final inspection will be conducted to ensure that the roof is properly installed and meets all safety and building code requirements, including our own company-wide high standards. We work alongside the Health and Safety Executive and other regulatory organisations right along our installation process to ensure the safest, most efficient installation.
Regular maintenance and inspections are essential to ensure the longevity of your new or recently repaired roof. Here are some tips for maintaining your new roof:
⦁ Keep the roof clean – Regularly remove debris, such as leaves and branches, from your roof to prevent damage to your newly installed roof.
⦁ Schedule regular inspections – Schedule regular inspections to identify potential issues before they become major problems.
⦁ Address issues promptly – If you notice any issues with your new system, such as leaks or damaged shingles, address them promptly to prevent further damage by contacting us.
⦁ Invest in professional maintenance – Regular maintenance and inspections will ensure the longevity of your new installation.
