Commercial roofs and roof replacement are very different from residential roofing work; most home roofs are completed in a few days, but a commercial roof can take several weeks or longer to complete. They are far more complex and can impact your facility's schedule while work is being completed. The end result is worth it, though, particularly if you have been struggling with leaks and constant repair work.
A new roof can eliminate your risk of business interruption (from leaks damaging equipment or forcing closure of part of your facility) and ensure you stay up and running. You also should make sure that the roof you select can be installed without disrupting your operation.
Your roofing project will be as unique as your facility; it may span several weeks, but the right contractor can provide you with a sound, quality new roof that is built to last -- without requiring that you close your facility. Learning more about the timeline of a commercial roof installation ensures you are not surprised by the process and allows you to plan.
For hospitals, schools and any businesses that rely on a regular schedule and continuity, the ability to get roofing work performed without closing is a must. Your contractor should provide you with details about their roofing process, how they plan to handle safety and debris, and what if any impact the work will have on your facility, parking area or walkways so you can plan accordingly.
Choosing the right roofing company from the start ensures you always know what is going on and that you are well informed about the roofing schedule. Remember: your roofer works for you – so the right contractor will be able to create an optimal schedule that meets your needs, including ensuring that everyone who works there or visits is able to safely access your facility.
