Comprehensive expertise in providing roofing solutions for industrial, business and retail environments.
As the premier commercial roofing company serving Victoria BC, RC Roofers have comprehensive expertise in providing roofing solutions for industrial, business and retail environments. Commercial roofing differs widely from residential roofing, in terms of the range of roofing systems available for installation.
Common Commercial Roofing Systems
Where residential roofing materials are typically asphalt, concrete or ceramic tile, slate or metal, a commercial system could consist of:
- Restorative coatings
- Ballast, or
- Single-ply, modified bitumen.
Many commercial and industrial buildings have flat roofs, which are installed by applying torched-on product such as SBS. When these develop leaks or cracks, the owner might need to patch the area affected or it could be necessary for your commercial roofing company to re-coat the entire roof surface. Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer (EPDM) is a form of synthetic rubber made from recycled materials, which are often used for commercial flat roofs because they are durable and inexpensive.
Every commercial roofing project we take on benefits from the presence of a qualified, onsite building foreman, who is appointed to your project to ensure everything runs smoothly during the construction stage. Final oversight rests with Roy Corbett and Rod Carey, however, who see every project to completion personally. As true professionals of the roofing industry, their purpose is to give you a quality customer experience and excellent value for your money.
Commercial Roof Repairs
Often, commercial building owners wait until problems are obvious before considering roof maintenance. This decision could be motivated by the desire to save money, but it is, in fact, counterproductive, and will increase the long-term costs of the roof. What many landlords are unaware of is that some parts of their roofing system could be at risk long before actual damage is visible. Leaks, for example, don’t typically occur until after the roofing system or insulation has worn down or there has been deck damage. These components can be protected through a preventative maintenance plan, which helps to avoid major damage and save you money over the long term.
If you have commercial premises with a flat roof, chances are good that you can expect to have a leak at some point in time. When a leak develops, or even if your roof is old and worn out, you will need to decide whether to repair or replace the roof. Our commercial roofing company can perform an inspection and advise you on the cause of your problem and the severity, current materials used to create your roof substrate, and determine alternative ways to meet your roofing needs.
