Commercial building roofs experience the same weather problems in Florida as residential homes. Many have modified bitumen with a flat roof that needs to stay waterproof, especially during storm season. The flatter the roof, the harder it can be for water to drain. How long does a commercial roof last? How do you know if it is time for a roof replacement?
If you have a plan that has included regular inspections, roof cleaning, and minor roofing repairs then replacing or fixing your commercial roof may be easy. Your roofing contractor will have addressed any leaks, missing flashing, or ponding. But once a roof has been damaged without repairs, it is probably time to consider a complete roof replacement.
Why? Water ponding on a flat roof adds weight and can create openings for leaks. As it gets hotter in Florida, the water will begin to leak into any damaged areas. Leaks are hard to detect, so any commercial building should have regular roof inspections.
Depending on which type of roofing material is chosen, your building can have many years of protection. Here are some options:
Modified bitumen roofing systems can provide your building protection for 10-20 years. It is a budget-friendly roofing solution. This roofing system requires little maintenance as well. Modified bitumen is one of the most used roof materials for flat or very low-slope roofing systems. It is flame retardant and asphalt-based. It is very waterproof and energy efficient.
TPO (Thermoplastic Polyolefin) roofing can last up to 50 years. It's hard to go wrong with this membrane system. It is made from a combination of polypropylene and ether polypropylene rubber as the base material for the membrane. It is a dependable choice for commercial buildings that need a new roof on a budget.
