Make Your Roofing Choice an Easy One
Your roof protects your business. It’s easy to forget it’s there but you’ll certainly remember once it’s leaking from storm damage or old age. It’s also understandable that you don’t want to be bogged down by the tedious and often stressful decision-making process when it comes to getting yourself a new one. There are so many options out there. And what if you choose wrong? But what if there was a “one-size-fits-all” roofing system?
Our specialty at Highland Commercial Roofing is what’s known as the single-ply roofing system. Think of a big, state-of-the-art plastic membrane that fits over the top of your building. But don’t just take us on our word. There are numerous reasons why you’ll want us to re-roof your building using single-ply.
Our Roofs Are Resistant to Acid Rain
Acid rain is a huge concern throughout the United States. What we may see as a pleasant rain shower is in fact millions of tiny droplets of water laced with corrosive chemicals that have been floating through our atmosphere. The rain is harmless to us but will slowly, methodically strip away your roofing material over the years. However, thermoplastic single-ply membranes (what we use on single-ply roofs) are naturally resistant to these chemicals, giving you a longer lasting roof.
Time is Money: Quick Installation Limits Your Downtime
You might break out into a cold sweat when you learn you need a new roof. The thought of losing money while you’re fitted with a new roof is stomach-churning. Luckily, single-ply roofs are incredibly easy to install, which in turn minimizes your downtime. The faster you get a new roof, the faster you can get back to business as usual. Highland Commercial Roofing understands that downtime means money lost for our customers. So we’re fast, efficient, and use materials that we know will install quickly and easily.
Single-Ply Roofing is Friendly to the Environment
This day and age, we’re all a little climate-conscious. And saying that you’re an environmentally friendly company is a badge of honor that you can wear proudly in your community.
Plus, buildings with traditional black-top roofs cause something called the “urban heat island effect.” It’s when the sun’s heat is absorbed by the roofs in a concentrated urban area. This effect causes heat pollution and it’s a real problem. Yet, there’s an easy solution—use roofing materials that reflect the sun. Single-ply roofs do exactly that.
But did you know that being environmentally friendly will save you money? Our single-ply roofing system reflects the sun’s harsh UV rays, keeping your building cooler and taking a lot of the work away from your HVAC system. With less money spent on your utility bills and less strain on your air conditioning system, you look good and save money while doing it.
Wear and Tear Have Less of an Impact
The second a new roof goes up it starts to deteriorate. Ultra-violet rays, dust, wind, snow, and rain all work together to hammer away at your roof. The thought can be overwhelming—you just spent a lot of money on something that is constantly exposed to the elements. How do you keep it safe from wear and tear?
The truth is, your roof should be the thing that takes a beating so the rest of your building doesn’t have to. And a good roof can take a good beating and keep going. Single-ply roofs are created to be naturally impact-resistant. They won’t fail you. Yet even the best materials need to be installed correctly. A professional roof installation by Highland Commercial Roofing means the job will be done right. With these two things working together, you’ll have a roof with the strength to last.
Lightweight Materials Take the Weight off Your Building’s Shoulders
Your building is doing a lot of work even if it doesn’t look like it. It stands tall, day and night, despite its age and the constant pull of gravity. And a heavy roof only adds insult to injury.
With a single-ply roof, you can add multiple layers to your roof membrane without adding considerable weight. This gives you the ability to add in extra protection without running the risk of over-stressing your building.
And the material is incredibly flexible. It can be easily installed over your roof’s existing structures. We understand that not all roofs look the same—with single-ply, we can overlay the membrane right over your roof’s unique features without the downtime of cutting and shaping our materials.
Ensure Your Roof Can Weather the Weather
Weather changes constantly. And many of the places Highland Commercial Roofing services suffer from soaring temperatures during the day and dramatic plunges at night. These constant and sudden changes in temperature can wreak havoc on a roof. However, with the strong adhesives used with single-ply roof, you don’t have to worry. Be it temperature, wind, ozone, or UV, your single-ply roof will stand tall through the worst of it.
How Expensive is It?
Single-ply roofs save you money, period. And their installation is easy on your wallet from the get go. The materials are inexpensive and, due to their ease of installation, can be fitted onto a building with minimal downtime. The membrane is so lightweight and flexible that it can fit right onto your existing features. And its lack of weight means you won’t need to pay for heavy-lifting equipment to move the materials.
With a quicker installation and one-size-fits-all materials, single-ply roofing is an efficient and economical way to re-roof your building,
