Industrial Roof Repair & Restoration

Often times, property owners are convinced that restoration or repair of low slope or flat roofing is simply not the best option. Usually, detection of defects doesn’t necessarily mean the roof needs to be replaced, but rather that it is simply in need of repair in order to perform properly.

There are many different and effective methods for repairing low sloped / no sloped roofs or flat roofing.

A roof that is nearly flat or just slightly pitched for water channeling is called a low slope roof. No roof should be truly “flat,” though it may appear that way from the ground. Every roof should have intentionally designed slight slopes for drainage.

Most often, low slope roofing is used in commercial buildings, and problems can be more difficult to diagnose because a leak area is often not directly located where the water is appearing inside a building.

At VanWeelden Co., we are typically able to successfully repair a portion of the roof or the entire surface of a flat roof. However, a moisture and structural test must be done to ensure that the roof has not met the end of its useful life, and problems with roofing materials are one of the most common defects found during an inspection.

How to Make Your Commercial Roof Pay for Itself

There are many different options to best repair an upper exterior surface of a commercial roof. The basic difference between a flat foot and an angled covering in commercial repair is one of owner preference.

Commercial Roof Maintenance & Repair

All in all, commercial repair for a flat surface is similar to repairs of any non-commercial flat roof and is an ongoing task every business should be ready for. Dealing with large numbers is a basic difference between repairs to commercial roofs compared with residential home repair, and both roof types will require timely maintenance.

Given that the aesthetic value of a commercial roof is less than a residential one, different materials are also used.

From historic properties to new construction and retrofits, we’ve seen it all and successfully improved roofing systems on all types of buildings. Our customers also recognize that VanWeelden Co. crew members are long-term workers with extensive in-house training.
