Commercial Roof Installation
Installing a commercial roof takes proper training and a close attention to detail. There are a lot of factors involved with the installation of a commercial roof, and that process is very different than installing a residential roof. Palmetto Outdoor Solutions has a wealth of experience installing all different types of commercial roofing. When installing a commercial roof, we make sure to cover all of the following steps:
- Ensure proper drainage – The installation of a commercial roof needs to consider how and where water will be drained. That means attending to areas, such as gutters, scuppers and downspouts. A failure to ensure proper drainage will result in water ponding on a roof. This additional weight can take its toll on a roof over the course of time. At Palmetto Outdoor Solutions, we install commercial roofs with adequate drainage to prevent any future problems.
- Strengthen membrane – Also referred to as the waterproof layer, the membrane must be strengthened to keep water out. Our trained roofing technicians will examine the entire membrane and repair any vulnerable patches or simply replace large portions. Water that gets through the membrane could prove to be very damaging.
- Seal penetrations – One a commercial roof, it is common to see penetrations, such as HVAC units, pipes and drains. These penetrations actually protrude from the membrane. Over the course of time, penetrations can become susceptible to leaks. That means they need to be adequately sealed during the installation process to prevent such issues from ever occurring.
When it comes to commercial roofing installation, there are some important decisions for property owners and management to make. The first decision comes down to what type of roof the company would like to have installed. Different options include PVC, asphalt shingles, metal, TPO, roof coatings and more.
Next, a company must decide on a budget as there can be unforeseen costs that arise during the process. This occurs mainly because it is usually a large scale project. A timeline for completion should also be considered as commercial roof installation is not a one-day job.
