Whether it is a repair, replacement or maintenance, a commercial roofing job is best left in the hands of a professional roofing contractor. While you may think that doing any of these on your own can help you save on labor costs, you are setting your roof up for failure in no time if you go the DIY route.
The Complexity of Commercial Roofs
Commercial roofing systems differ a lot from their residential counterparts in many ways. They’re far more complex, which means the demand for installing them is greater than what is expected in a home roofing project. Commercial roofs are usually flat or low-sloped while residential roofs are pitched. Both projects vary in terms of materials and methods of installation.
Daily Business Operations
A DIY commercial roofing job can affect the daily operations of your business. Once inclement weather sets in, the “fixed” roof won’t stand up to the elements, revealing hail and wind damage. This, in turn, compromises your company, inventory and employees’ security. By not hiring a roofing contractor, your roof could be setting up for trouble once installation issues appear.
Maintenance Programs From Contractors
Rather than go the DIY route, hiring a contractor that also offers maintenance plans for your commercial roofing system is a more sensible option. Preventative maintenance programs can help extend the life and performance of your roof. Plus, having a plan in place and sticking to it allows you to save on untimely and costly repairs and premature roof replacement.
