A new roof for a commercial property is a large expense, and with so many options available it can be difficult to know which roofing system is the right choice for your business. That’s where your Cherry Hill Commercial Roofing expert can help, so here are 5 important factors to acknowledge when you’re choosing a commercial roofing system:
- What are the investment goals for your property?
Things to consider when determining your investment goals should be: How long do you plan to own the property? How long of a warranty are you looking for? What kind of budget do you have? Do you have access to extra capital?
- How is the property going to be used?
Such as… What kind of roof traffic will there be? Is it going to be an outdoor deck or patio for tenants, or will it just be used by service technicians a few times per year? Can the rooftop be seen? And if so, are looks important? Is there a large risk factor if a leak occurs such as expensive inventory? Heed the advice of a Cherry Hill EPDM Roofer, and answer these questions as honestly and accurately as possible.
- Where is your property located?
Properties near the coast usually need a system with a higher wind rating, while inner cities are typically warmer than rural and suburban areas due to the urban heat island effect. Are you located in an area where some roof systems are impractical?
- Local building codes
Building codes can influence your roofing system decision. Your Cherry Hill commercial roofing contractor can assist you in determining the best options for your location.
- What is the construction of your building and roof?
What is the roof deck constructed with? Will you be leaving the current roof system in place or removing it? Do you have insulation requirements? Increasing the R-value of the insulation can drastically reduce your energy costs.
