How to Know If You Need a Commercial Roof Removal
Believe it or not, that old roof on your commercial structure may be doing you more harm than good. When your roof gets older or sustains significant damage, it may be time to explore the various commercial roofing services available. With significant aging and damage, it may be beneficial to consider a roof removal for long-term savings.
An aging roof may require repairs of increasing frequency and severity. It’s like that high-mileage car that, after providing years of reliable service, simply costs too much to maintain.
A roof removal is often necessary when:
- Updated building codes make it impossible to cover over an older commercial roof.
- Core cuts reveal that more extreme amounts of moisture have invaded the insulation and/or roof deck or have become trapped between layers of roofing. Trapped moisture can lead to mold growth, wood and steel deck deterioration, as well as other serious problems. Moisture also reduces the R-value of insulation.
- The roof is vulnerable to wind damage because of the use of older mechanical fastening systems.
- The underlying steel or wood roof deck has deteriorated. For example, older phenolic foam insulation may generate sulfonic acid that corrodes a steel deck. Or, long-term leaks have led to roof deck deterioration.
Energy bills are also a consideration. An older black EPDM or asphalt roof often drives up cooling costs compared to white thermoplastic roof systems, including PVC, TPO and White roof coatings. These highly reflective, white single-ply membranes reduce utility bills by bouncing more sunlight back into the atmosphere.
Our Process for Commercial Roof Removal
We offer commercial roof removals to companies and property owners in New Jersey, the Allentown/Bethlehem area of Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Massachusetts and New Hampshire. Our commercial roof removals include EPDM rubber, white single-ply PVC or TPO membrane, white roof coating systems, modified bitumen, and others.
We’ll carefully go over your roof removal options with you so you can determine which new roof will give you the look, durability and energy efficiency you’re looking for. Due to the size and complexity of commercial roofs, commercial roof removals often take several weeks or more to design, fabricate and complete.
However, we work closely with the tenant so as to cause as little inconvenience as possible. When our experienced employees arrive, they’ll work to keep the work site neat and organized. Debris is promptly removed in our own containers that we have on-site.
