Commercial Roofing in Tampa
Commercial roofing always carries with it its own list of specifications that make it different than residential roofing. Then the harsh climate conditions of the area mean that Tampa commercial roofing can have its own specs when compared to other areas of the country where weather conditions are more mild. Also because quite often business will be interrupted by a commercial roofing project, a tight schedule is something a commercial rough roofing contractor must be able to adhere to. We here at Tampa Exteriors carry with us a solid track record that makes this one of the most recognized names in the area and that track record is your assurance that your job will be done right and on time.
Commercial Roof Types
Up until about four decades back commercial roof types consisted of basically one option and that was built-up asphalt roofing systems that had about a two decade long service life. Since then however, changes have come in the form of the membrane roof that does away with overlapping seems that were always the vulnerable areas in a built-up asphalt roof. A membrane roof derives its name from the fact that it’s a solid/seamless membrane that covers the entire building because rather than overlapped seems, the edges are fused together to form one solid sheet. Of the various types of membrane roof that are available, torch down rubber roofing tends to be the least costly with high-tech plastic membrane roofs costing more, and we here at Tampa Exteriors make available in membrane roofing of all types.
Commercial Roof Repair
Commercial roof repair is not what it used to be. Today, unlike decades past, when asphalt-based products like common mastic were the primary tools of the trade, when it comes time for commercial roof repair, a more thorough knowledge of more specialized adhesives, techniques and patching materials and systems is required. Different types of plastic membrane roofs call for their own specs for patching products to be applied for them to bind and fuse correctly. One thing that does remain the same though, is that a certain level of training and experience is still required, just as it always has been with standard built-up asphalt commercial roof repair. This is because the actual source of leaks can be difficult to locate because water can travel several feet along underlayment and roof sheeting after it makes its way past the surface.
Commercial Roof Coatings
Commercial roof coatings used to the pretty much a scam. It’s not that they were a total rip-off; rather they tended to be over-hyped asphalt-based products that may have looked good after they were applied, but really did very little in terms of preventing leaks and extending service life. Today however, as a result of a myriad of chemical engineering developments, new high-tech commercial roof coatings are available, that even if they are substantially more expensive than older asphalt coatings, actually do what their makers say they will. Popular roll-on liquid rubber commercial coatings, for instance, form a watertight seal that lasts up to seven years to close off leaks in low areas of flat roofs. Other reflective coatings also protect roof surfaces while they serve double duty reflecting the sun’s rays and working as an insulator.
