Signs Your Commercial Roof Requires Replacement
While it is essential to replace outdated roofs, signs of damage might not be immediately visible. While roofers can provide repairs for minor issues, reroofing is the necessary option in many cases. Some common indications of the need for a roof replacement are:
Age: A roof's age is the best indicator of roof replacement. If your commercial roof is older than 20 years and you have to call for repairs frequently, it is best to replace it. Replacing your aged roof will save you money on repairs in the long run.
High-energy costs: Old roofs allow air leakage, putting added stress on your heating and cooling systems. If you have not made any changes to your building’s insulation, but are seeing an usual rise in energy costs, your old roof might be the culprit.
Water damage: Commercial roofs are slightly more susceptible to water damage because they're usually a flat roofing system, allowing water to pool on top. Depending on the extent of the water damage, a roof replacement might be your only option.
Damage to membrane: Damage to your roof's membrane occurs when poor weather conditions cause uplifting. If you let uplifting go unchecked, water can enter your building and compromise its structural integrity.

Commercial & Flat Roof Styles
Here are a few brief explanations of the various commercial and flat roof styles available:
Built-Up Roofing Systems — A roofing system consisting of multiple plies of roof felts that have been laminated together with bitumen.
TPO — Thermoplastic polyolefin single-ply roofing membranes are crafted from ethylene propylene rubber and are among the most popular and fastest growing products in the industry.
EPDM Roofing Systems — Ethylene propylene diene monomer is a single-ply membrane that consists of synthetic rubber of typically 45, 60 or 90 mils. There are several ways to apply EPDM, including ballasted, mechanically attached, or fully adhered.
Green Roofing Systems — In a green roofing system, a vegetated roof cover take the place of the bare membrane, gravel, shingles, or tiles. While there are many kinds of green roof systems, all include at least a single or multi-play waterproofing layer, drainage, growing media, and of course — plants.
Liquid-Applied Roofing Systems — A liquid-applied roofing system features a monolithic membrane that is applied to all types of roof substrates. This can be applied as either a reinforced or non-reinforced system.
Hot Fluid-Applied Roofing Systems — With a hot fluid-applied roofing system, a hot rubberized roofing membrane is applied to form a monolithic membrane.
