Commercial Roof Installation

Commercial roofs look simple—flat, barely visible, often a uniform color. Despite their outward appearance, they are actually incredibly complex. They need to cover a lot of square footage with minimal supports, manage rainwater despite being flat, and carry the weight of industrial HVAC systems. You don’t want your commercial roof installed by general contractors or even residential roofing teams. Our commercial roofing technicians are up to date on code compliance and trained to install commercial roofing of all types. 

Commercial Roof Repair

Your average commercial building with a quality roof will need repair about once a year. If your roof isn’t in the best shape to start with, you might need commercial roof repair multiple times a year. Damage to your company’s roof is concerning since it can harm the support structures and just make being in your building an unpleasant experience. Our Berwyn commercial roof repair helps protect your business and its reputation. 

Commercial Roof Replacement

You can’t predict how long your commercial roof will last. Everything from the materials used to sudden catastrophic damage can lengthen or shorten its lifespan. Eventually, all commercial roofs must be replaced. At Walton Roofing, we work our commercial roof replacement around your schedule, making it conducive to your business. 

Why Commercial Roofs Develop Problems

Every commercial roof should be built strong and designed to last at least 15 years. Despite this, they often develop problems. Why this is comes down to numerous factors. Here are some reasons Chicagoland commercial roofs might need repair or replacement.

Poorly Installed Flashing

Flashing is a weatherproofing material that goes around any object that protrudes through the roof—think vents, skylights, and HVAC systems. When this is poorly installed, rain, hail, and snow can get inside your building.

Storm Damage

A few spots of blistering on your roof aren’t a big concern. However, if you are noticing it in many spots across your roof, it indicates that there is a problem. Whether this is due to poor installation or age, you want this repaired quickly. 

Lack of Maintenance

Most major commercial roof problems start small and only get big because they aren’t caught in time. You want to have your roof inspected at least once a year, if not once per quarter, to catch any problems before they cause significant damage.

Ponding Water

Even if your building has a flat roof, water should never pool on its surface. Flat commercial roofing is designed with a slight slope to allow for water runoff. If you have ponding water on your roof, something is wrong.

Punctures

Wind, hail, and debris can hit your roof hard enough to puncture it, especially if spots are allowed to wear down over time. If you even suspect that something might have punctured your commercial roof, you should call us ASAP.

Shrinkage

Your roof membrane provides essential protection against water. When it shrinks, it can create cracks that allow water to seep inside. In many cases, it will also pull on the flashing and allow water to enter through holes around vents and other objects.
