Solve Your Leaking Metal Roof Problems with a Single-Ply Retrofit

There are over 60 billion square feet of metal roofing in place in the United States and a couple billion more are installed every year. If you own or manage a commercial building, there’s a good chance a structural standing seam metal roof is on your building.

When it comes to metal roofing, hot and cold weather extremes, moisture/precipitation, insulation challenges, and UV exposure can cause loose seams, cracked penetrations, rust, corrosion, condensation, and ultimately roof leaks. While there are many quick fixes to these issues, they won’t solve the problem and can lead to larger, big-ticket maintenance and repairs down the road.

At Complete Commercial Roofing, we’re experts at retrofitting structural metal roofs with single-ply membrane roofing systems. This offers a number of advantages over other “short term” alternatives, like sealants or spray foam.

Single-ply systems are installed right over the existing roof deck and include additional layers of insulation to improve energy efficiency, reduce the potential for interior condensation, and provide a smooth surface for the installation. A single-ply retrofit can protect your building for years to come against rain, temperature changes, interior drips, ice build-up, as well as rust and corrosion. It can be installed for much less than the cost of a replacement metal roof and is a better long-term solution than sealants, coatings, or foam.

Getting a New Commercial Roof? Questions for Your Contractor

If you’re in the market for a new commercial roof, the most important thing to consider is probably not the kind of roofing system you’ll get – it’s the contractor that will be doing the work. It’s critical that you select an experienced reliable contractor because the majority of issues after installation can be traced to problems with contractor workmanship.

Here are a few questions to ask when you’re evaluating contractors:

  • How experienced are they with the system they’re proposing to install? Are they authorized and/or trained by the manufacturer?
  • Can they provide references of completed projects that are comparable to the job being proposed?
  • Can they discuss with you the condition of the current roof and what the potential challenges are? Do any substrate (e.g., insulation) components need to be replaced, and/or do other repairs need to be made?
  • What is their safety record and what are their procedures for installing the roof safely – for their crew as well as the building occupants?
  • What warranties are available from them in addition to any issued by the roof system manufacturer?

The long-term success of any roofing system ultimately falls on the installing roofing contractor and their application quality. When you choose Complete Commercial Roofing, we’ll answer all your questions to put your mind at ease. Reach out to us at 765-457-4848.
