What is commercial roof refurbishment?
Commercial roof refurbishment is the process of restoring and renewing an existing roof. Its purpose is to improve the roof’s condition, extend its lifespan, and enhance its performance. This process includes a thorough assessment of the roof’s current condition.
Any potential problems should be identified and addressed with the appropriate repairs and enhancements. Commercial roof refurbishment aims to revitalize the roof’s functionality, durability, and aesthetic appeal. It provides a cost-effective alternative to a complete roof replacement.
During a commercial roof refurbishment project, skilled roofing professionals assess the roof’s structure, materials, and overall integrity. They identify any signs of damage, such as leaks, cracks, deteriorating flashing or compromised insulation. After a thorough inspection, we make necessary roof repairs to address these issues and restore the roof’s integrity.

In addition to repairs, commercial roof refurbishment often includes other vital elements:
Applying protective coatings is a crucial part of roof refurbishment. These coatings act as a barrier against moisture, UV radiation, and other environmental factors that can cause premature roof deterioration. In addition, coatings can improve the roof’s resistance to weathering, enhance energy efficiency, and provide a fresh, aesthetically pleasing appearance.
Enhanced Energy Efficiency
As part of the refurbishment process, we may upgrade existing insulation to enhance energy efficiency and reduce heating and cooling costs. The upgrade can help regulate indoor temperatures and minimize heat transfer, improving the overall energy performance of the building.

Improve Energy Performance
If we identify any structural weaknesses or deficiencies, we add necessary reinforcements to the refurbishment plan. Strengthening the roof’s structure ensures its stability and ability to withstand external forces, such as high winds or heavy snow loads.

Drainage and Ventilation Enhancements
Adequate drainage and ventilation are essential for a healthy roof system. Refurbishment projects may involve improving drainage systems to prevent water pooling and potential leaks. Likewise, ventilation enhancements can help regulate moisture levels, reduce mold or mildew growth, and maintain optimal conditions within the building.
