Commercial Roofing

Continental Roofing can meet all of your commercial roofing needs. When it comes to commercial roofing, people want to hire a contractor to take care of the job with as little hassle and as few complications as possible. At Continental Roofing, we are experts in handling your commercial roofing needs and can ensure that you have the right team working on your new roof.

Different Styles of Commercial Roofing
There are several different types of commercial roofs that are available. Among a long list of options, there are approximately four that tend to get the most attention. These are Thermoplastic Roofing, EPDM Roofing, Photovoltaic Panels and Green Roofs. Of course, options such as Asphalt Shingle, Slate and Copper are available, however.

Thermoplastic Roofing
Thermoplastic roofing is becoming popular as a commercial roofing system because of its durability and flexibility. It withstands high temperatures very well and also resists UV lights and chemicals. Additionally, this style of roofing has a very long lifespan which is over 20 years.

Photovoltaic Panels
Many people are looking into Photovoltaic Panels because of the energy efficiency that is gained. These panels can be mounted with tile and convert sunlight into usable energy. If you have a company that is very 'green' or concerned about being environmentally friendly, PV Panels may be the right choice for you.

EPDM Roofs
Another popular option called EPDM Roofing is a type of synthetic rubber roofing. It is most often used for large commercial jobs that would require covering a large flat surface. This style of roofing is durable and is one of the longest-lasting commercial roof types available.

Green Roofs
If you are interested in new emerging trends in green roofing systems, Green Roofs might be an option for your business. Green roofs typically cover flat roofs which allow for the roof to be covered in soil and vegetation. One of the many benefits of these roofing systems includes improving the insulation of the building, improving the energy efficiency of your business.

Roof Restoration

Preventing damages to the interior of your home is the main objective of roof restoration and repair. In order to stay on top of periodic maintenance, you should have your roof inspected routinely. Sometimes, just keeping an eye on the condition of your roof is enough to spot signs of future problems. Standing water, bubbles, roof flashing and tears in the roof cover are all good indications that you should proceed with a professional examination. Any professional will work with you to come up with a repair plan to address all of the potential problems of your roof system.

Why Spray Coatings Are Not a Cure-All
Many times, people fall victim to using a spray coating to cover up potential leaks instead of doing a complete inspection. Without a full inspection, you cannot be sure that spray coatings are going to take care of leak hazards. The best approach is always hired a licensed professional. At Continental Roofing we can provide you with a thorough inspection of your roof and let you know if any maintenance is required at that time.

How to Avoid Unforeseen and Costly Repairs
Some homeowners take not having any visible water damage within their home as a sign that their roof system is well-maintained. Although it is possible that your roof is well-maintained, without periodic inspections you risk having unknown water damage create even bigger problems such as mold and mildew, which are difficult to eliminate entirely once they begin growing. Before you know it, you might have many materials rotting where standing water was not removed. Waiting for damage to occur before you take action only leads to more costly repairs when they could have been avoided.

Continental Roofing can take care of all of your roof restoration needs. We are a full-service, certified roofing company. Call us today to get started!
 

Roof Replacement

If you are certain that you have a damaged roof, then it's time to consider the options you have when it comes to roof repair. Some things you should consider when deciding to re-roof your home is if you need to replace one area of your roof or if replacing the entire roof is a better option. At this point, calling a licensed professional to inspect your roof is the best way to go to get a full assessment of the state of your roof.

Problems with Patchwork
Many homeowners often turn to patchwork to repair their homes. While patchwork can be cheaper short-term, it may not be the best long term solution. For example, if damage to your roof is requiring that you replace a significant portion of your roof, then re-roofing the entire home might be a more cost effective option in the long-run.

There are additional problems with patchwork that sometimes get overlooked for the sake of saving money now, instead of over time. If your roof is fairly new, patching an existing problem area is usually a viable solution, however. If your roof is older than 20 years, then a complete roof replacement is probably more economical.

For example, replacing one half of your roof now may seem cheaper but the overhead costs of starting a new job will make your total roof replacement job cost more by the time you have the other half of the roof replaced.

Patchwork Can Be Unattractive
Often times, when patchwork is done, many homes end up with different colored and styled shingles, especially if the project is done by the home owner, instead of a professional. If you are getting ready to sell your home within the next few years, unattractive patchwork can deter buyers. The offset shingles signal to the buyer that there could have been previous water damage and also make the home less aesthetically appealing.

If patchwork really is the best option for your home, which usually occurs when the roof is fairly new, have a professional order matching tiles to complete the job. This way, you can rest knowing that your roof has been thoroughly inspected and properly repaired.

Other things that you might want to consider after having your roof replaced is how often you should continue to have it inspected. Many people recommend doing a thorough inspection every other season. So, every spring and fall as an example.

Waterproofing

When it comes to roofing, waterproofing is a subject that cannot go overlooked. If you live in a very rainy area, then you are well-aware of the damages that can ensue as a result of heavy rainfall and how it can result in damages to your home if your roof is not protected. Problems such as mold and mildew only scratch the surface in terms of the resultant problems that have to be addressed when water begins to seep into the home.

Commercial Flat Roofs
Although all roofs need some level of waterproofing, commercial flat roofs, or roofs that have a pitch of less than 10 degrees always require waterproofing. Standing water can easily become a problem on flat roofs and the added pressure can begin to cause leakage. The best way to avoid water damage to your home or business is to have a professional inspect your roof and ensure that you are protected. You can usually very easily spot water damage on the ceiling and round light fixtures. If that is the case, calling a professional immediately is highly recommended before further damages results.

Standard Roofing for Homes
Other types of shingles, like wooden ones, also may require an extra level of waterproofing when it comes to protecting your home. There are oil and water-based compounds that can be applied to waterproof these types of shingles. Other areas of concern in your home include the flashing near chimneys and breaks in the roof as well as underneath other the shingles. This is applicable to any home with most types of roofing.

If you do have water damage, there is a strong chance that you will need to replace materials within your home or business. A licensed professional can be expedient in determining exactly what has been damaged and how you might go about replacing it. The next step may be to replace your roof with an emphasis on a good waterproofing job.
