Whether owning or managing a building is new or you’re very experienced, you know that the roof has an important job. As Knoxville commercial roofers, we have put together the big three mistakes regarding commercial roofing that we see. They are:
- Hiring the wrong Knoxville commercial roofers
- Belief that the roof will last indefinitely
The fact is, with proper maintenance your roof will last longer, however, both roof repair and replacement are inevitable. Here are the tips we give our commercial roofing customers.
Hire a Commercial Roofing Company for Maintenance
Roof maintenance looks different for different roofing materials and age roofs. If you haven’t called your Knoxville commercial roofers in the past two years for a roofing inspection and maintenance, call today. Ask them how often they recommend maintenance for your particular roof based on the material and age.
Budget for a Roof Replacement
Although it is possible that a commercial roof coating may extend the life of your roof, that’s not an option for all roofing types. Plus, that’s still an investment many businesses who haven’t planned ahead have on hand. Don’t hesitate to ask your roofing maintenance company how long they think your roof will last and if they say less than five years, ask for an estimate. Just be aware that materials pricing changes every 6 – 12 months so the price they quote is an estimate based on today’s prices. Once you have a timeline and number, start budgeting.
Choose a Leading Commercial Roofing Company
Not all roofing companies handle commercial roofing. Even fewer handle the type of roofing on your building. Before you hire any Knoxville commercial roofers, ask if they repair, maintain and replace your specific roofing material. Once you’ve checked that, make sure they’re licensed and insured. Finally, check their Better Business Bureau rating and their online reviews.
