Commercial Roof Service & Repair
A commercial roof does more than provide shelter and integrity to the surrounding structure; it is a statement about corporate priorities and style. Here at Hound Roofing, we understand the importance of finding the right balance between costs, efficiency, and quality. Our commercial roofing services span various categories and are all meant to help you, the business owner, make the appropriate selection for your company.
New Roof Installations
New construction requires a new roof installation. While there is no getting around the necessity of the installation, there are several things a business owner should consider beyond the potential business interruption.
There are many materials to choose from when selecting a new roof, including BUR membrane, Modified bitumen, EPDM, PVC, TPO, and metal. Your choice will depend on your budget and specific needs. However, as a metal-craft manufacturer, we encourage metal roofing whenever the budget allows because it is a superior roofing option in most circumstances.
If you intend to open your business as the roof is being laid, you should consider the noise. While it is not impossible to open parts of a facility during installation, active installation sites will be loud, making it challenging for workers and customers to concentrate.
Many business owners do not understand the labor and material costs associated with a new roof installation, with many looking for the cheapest options available. Here at Hound Roofing, quality matters; we will not install a roof that does not meet our high standards. Since we understand that budget is a primary concern for most commercial clients, we will work with you to determine the best roofing choices for you and your business.
Honesty and Integrity Matter
We believe in being honest with our clients. While you might come to us wanting the cheapest options, we know roofs, and we can tell you what a realistic budget looks like. While we want to help as many businesses as possible and put a roof on every building in North Carolina, we also want to rest easy after a hard day’s work, knowing we did the right thing. We will work within your budget to find the best possible solution for your roofing needs.
There are times when we can retrofit a new roof over an existing roof, but sometimes that is not possible or practical. Retrofitting can indeed save your company some money, but when the integrity of the roof is in question, making such a decision is not feasible in the long term, meaning a re-roof installation is necessary.
Signs You Need a New Commercial Roof
Most likely, if the roof of your building is between 20 to 25 years old, a retrofit will not work. Before we tell you that a re-roof is essential, we will assess the existing roof for signs of damage. There are several potential signs that your facility needs a re-roof:
- The roof is sagging, causing ponding or pooling
- There is visible damage (cracks, tears, etc.)
- Signs of vegetation or mold growth
- Persistent water leaks in the facility
- Rising energy costs due to inefficient heating and cooling
Custom Flat Roof Metal Crafters
As a leading metal-craft manufacturer, it is safe to say we specialize in metal roofs. While there are other roofing materials to select from, we often encourage our clients to choose a metal option because of the material’s significant advantages.
Metal roofing has a longer lifespan than other roofing materials, typically between 30 and 50 years, nearly three times longer than other materials. The material is durable and resistant to weather, like snow, heat, strong winds, etc. While an install’s initial cost is likely more than other materials, the longevity and durability mean you potentially save money in the long run.
Metal roofing also provides a reflective surface, meaning the heat during those long summer months is reflected away from the building, allowing your AC to do its job. Additionally, in the colder months, the heat is kept inside, meaning that metal roofing can reduce your energy costs year-round.
Metal roofing weighs significantly less than other roofing materials. For example, while metal roofs contribute about 50 to 150 pounds per square, tile can weigh nearly more than six or seven times that amount, putting significant strain and pressure on the surrounding structure.
If speed is a concern for you, a metal roof is the best option. Metal roofing comes in larger, lightweight panels, making it easier for installers. The installation time is typically reduced, especially when working with an experienced metal roofing company like Hound Roofing.
Service and Maintenance
Beyond installation, we here at Hound Roofing believe in standing by our products, which is why we offer protection and service to our clients. Every roof will require maintenance at some point, whether from weather wear, storm damage, or some other issue. Through our Commercial Cover Program, you can rest assured that no problem will interfere with your success.
