Advantages of replacing your commercial roof
There are a number of advantages when it comes to installing a brand new commercial roof, and getting rid of the old one. These advantages include:
- Creating a roof that is aesthetically pleasing
- improving energy efficiency
- resolving any structural problems
- longevity of the new roof
Creating a roof that is aesthetically pleasing
One of the biggest advantages of replacing your commercial roof is the visual appeal. A new commercial roofing system could be designed and installed to turn your dreary, grey, roof, into something that really stands out. A single ply ballasted roof system, like a sedum roof, can transform your roof space into a rooftop garden. Adding greenery and life to an otherwise unused space. And this is perfect for low level commercial properties where the roof is visible to the public.
Improving the outer appeal of your premises, can give potential clients and customers a much better impression of your company.
Improving energy efficiency
If your current roof is old, or out of date, the chances are that it has some issues. One of the most common issues is the development of holes and small tears around the seals or joins. Especially if you have a built up felt roof. These tears will be having a significant impact on the energy efficiency of your property. Because your company will be losing heat through these holes, this will also be costing a lot of money in bills.
Choose and install a new roof, that is specially designed to insulate your property, like our single ply roofing options. This new roof will reduce the amount of heat lost and as a result, is a great option both for you, and the environment.
Resolving any structural problems
In addition, another of the advantages of replacing your commercial roof, is that your roof structural issues can be addressed. Over time, roofing systems can become warn down by weather and age. And a roof that has been compromised, is a roof that could potentially have structural damage or issues. These can include:
- Visible water penetration
- Damage to the insulation
- Potential mold growth issues
Any of these issues can lead to bigger, more expensive problems, the longer they are left without a resolution. But, here at Enviroply, we can address these issues while we design your new commercial roof.
