Commercial Flat Roof Replacement - Toronto
Long-Term Flat Roof Replacement Solutions
Cheap flat roof solutions always sound like a good bargain, but many of these jobs end up leaving the flat roof in a worsened state. The best flat roofing companies in Toronto do not sacrifice the quality of a flat roof installation for cost. The best way to fix a flat roof is to have it serviced by an experienced flat roof specialist.
When a commercial or industrial property owner or business owner with a flat roof recieves multiple flat roof replacement and repair estimates from different contractors across the Greater Toronto Area, the decision made is highly based on value and cost. At Roof Maintenance.ca, when your flat roof is leaking, our professionally installed flat roofing systems offer long-lasting and durable solutions that will last beyond their lifecycle costs.
Replace, Recover or Restore Your Deteriorated Flat Roof
For flat roof replacements, there is no simple, fix-all solution. The process requires special demands in planning, workmanship and execution. Any errors during this process often lead to low life-cycle roofs and more money spent on constant repairs. It is not uncommon for a roofing company to price a full tear-off at an unbeatable price â€“ be wary these quotes are often too good to be true. Always choose a flat roofing contractor with experience, material knowledge and a proven track record to know that you are truly covered.
When Is A Flat Roof Replacement Justified?
A complete tear-off and replacement of an existing flat roofing system is warranted if one or more of the following situations exist:
- Tear-off is mandated by the building code.
- The existing flat roofing system is deteriorated beyond being serviceable as a substrate for a recover system.
- There is extensive moisture below the membrane.
- The existing roof system attachment cannot provide the wind up-lift resistance or fire protection required for the new roof assembly.
- There is significant deterioration to the underlying structural deck.
When the area of wet roofing material exceeds about 25 percent of the total roof area, the cost of restoring the wet areas begins to approach the cost of tear off. If the subsurface moisture is extensive (30 to 35 percent or more of the entire roof area) it usually makes no economic sense to add another layer of membrane to the existing roof (re-cover/re-roof) because the wet materials must be torn off and removed before a new layer is installed or you risk serious moisture and structural damage.
Partial replacements, patch-ups and flat roof recoveries become difficult to justify if the damage and deterioration leading to the need for service is due to aging, weathering and long-term exposure to the elements. If the deterioration is extensive, general patch-ups and flat roof repairs will rarely solve the problem. For example, replacing deteriorated base flashings or pitch pockets may temporarily eliminate a specific source of water intrusion, but continued patch-ups of individual components will rarely be cost-effective.
