Commercial roofing is the process of installing a roof on a commercial building such as an office, warehouse, or retail space. Here is an overview of the typical process of commercial roofing:
Before any work can begin, the existing roof must be inspected and assessed to determine its condition and any necessary repairs or replacements.
Once the assessment is complete, any necessary repairs to the existing roof must be made. This may involve patching leaks, replacing damaged roofing materials, or repairing the underlying structure.
The next step is to select the type of roofing material that will be used. Common types of commercial roofing materials include asphalt shingles, metal roofing, single-ply membrane roofing, and built-up roofing.
Once the roofing materials have been selected, the installation process can begin. This typically involves removing the old roofing material, installing any necessary insulation, and then laying the new roofing material according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
Flashing and sealing are important steps in ensuring the roof is waterproof and can withstand the elements. Flashing is typically installed around roof penetrations such as vents, pipes, and skylights to prevent water from entering. Sealing is done around the edges of the roof to prevent leaks.
Once the installation is complete, a final inspection is done to ensure that the roof is properly installed and meets all local building codes and regulations.
It is important to note that the specific steps involved in commercial roofing may vary depending on the type of roofing material used, the size and shape of the building, and other factors. Hathcock Roofing and Remodeling professionals will ensure the project is completed safely and properly.
