Resolve to Improve Your Commercial Roof’s Performance in 2020

Making resolutions for a new year has been shown to improve personal performance and to help people more effectively reach their goals. With all the 2020 offerings from Maxwell Roofing & Sheet Metal, Inc., businesses can also make a resolution this year: to improve their roof performance with new commercial roofing.

Here are just a few ways that a new commercial roof can help your business in 2020: 

Better Energy Efficiency—Energy-efficient materials have come a long way during the last decade. Commercial roof new construction allows building owners to install top-of-the-line insulation or other materials to help reduce energy costs. A new commercial roof can also be equipped for hardware like solar panels.

Improved Weatherproofing—New commercial roofs are better at resisting weather like rain and snowstorms. Old roofs may not hold up against hail or strong winds. Aging materials may not be up to the job of securing equipment on the roof, and outdated roof membranes and other roofing materials may start to lose their waterproofing qualities.

A New Look—A change in roof design can completely change the look of a building. Altering the roof pitch or material can give a business a whole new style, while also improving performance. Additionally, the design of a roof can help with everything from weatherproofing to energy efficiency.

Preventing Leaks—Leaks are the biggest concern when it comes to a commercial roof. Not only can a leak damage a roof, but it can also create problems in other parts of a building. With a new commercial roof, your business can get the best leak protection. If a new roof isn’t in the budget for 2020, your business can still improve leak performance by fixing penetrations and other problem areas on a roof. It’s not just the roof itself that protects against leaks but also all roof accessories.

Starting Strong with a Maintenance Plan—No matter how good a new commercial roof is, without a regular maintenance plan, it won’t make it to its expected replacement date. Commercial roofs are complicated systems and need regular inspections and repairs. Maxwell Roofing & Sheet Metal, Inc. offers a no-hassle maintenance plan called MAXCare®. With MAXCare, companies can easily schedule inspections and plan for upcoming repairs. Going into 2020 with MAXCare will ensure that your company’s roof performance greatly improves.

Is 2020 the Year for a New Commercial Roof?

If your roof is getting old, if it has serious damage, or if it’s just full of outdated materials, then 2020 might be the year for an upgrade. New construction for a commercial roof is a big undertaking, but it’s usually worth the effort. Here are some signs that it’s time to get a new commercial roof.

Reasons to Get a New Commercial Roof

  1. Leaks and damage: Sometimes, leaks can be solved with a simple repair, but often they’re signs that something more serious is going on with the roof. If you have severe leaks, you may have other problems, and it’s probably time for a new commercial roof. Other damage to the roof membranes, flashings, or deck can also signal the need for a new roof.
  2. Investing in the longevity of your building: The cost of a new commercial roof can be off-putting, but the investment goes a long way. New commercial roofs can last for more than 20 years, and they also protect the rest of the building from damage. Without a good roof, your building may be prone to damage from storms or moisture.
  3. Improve energy efficiency: Energy efficiency technology has come a long way in the last few years, and roofs play a large part in how many of those technologies function. A new commercial roof can get better insulation or be fitted for solar panels or some other kind of technology to lower electricity bills and make your building more efficient.
  4. Structural roof damage: Old roofs or roofs that have undergone some sort of accident can become structurally unsound. When this happens, it doesn’t just endanger your roof but the integrity of the entire building. If a roof is sagging or bending, it’s time to get a new commercial roof as soon as possible.
  5. Damage to roof equipment or penetrations: Damage to roof accessories like flashings, drains, or penetrations like skylights can be a cause for a roof replacement. Sometimes, these accessories can’t be replaced, and you will need a whole new roof.
  6. Get a new design: Maybe you want to make your building more green. Maybe you want some nice skylights to wow your clients. A new commercial roof opens up a whole world of design possibilities.
