IS YOUR OLD ROOF COSTING YOU?

money

It might be hard to believe but it’s possible your roof is actually costing you money. As a roof gets older, and the longer it goes without maintenance, problems arise and efficiency decreases. Here are some ways to improve efficiency, save you money and help you decide if it’s time to repair or replace your old roof.

HOW IT COSTS YOU

If you’ve noticed an increase in utilities over time it could be an indicator your roof is not efficient anymore. In the summer, a darker color roof absorbs sunlight and could be taxing on your A/C functionality. In the winter, an older roof could be letting heat escape. Not only will it cost you in bills but it is likely shortening the lifetime of your HVAC unit as well which can be costly to replace or repair.

The cost will only go up if you don’t perform maintenance or repairs. Neglecting to make any changes can lead to a total replacement where originally only a simple repair was needed.

COOL ROOF

There is such thing as a cool roof! Using materials that reflect sunlight, lighter colors or coatings can help your roof keep cold air in and hot air out. It’s important to know your climate! Certain roofing materials are better suited for different temperatures, weather, and seasonal changes.

REPAIR OR REPLACE?

If you can visually tell your roof is damaged, curling, buckling, splitting, blistering, or has major debris on the roof deck this is an indicator of a roof in need of repair or replacement.

In general, if you’re questioning the state of your roof or gutters, the safest answer is to call! Basic maintenance, repairs or even a replacement roof is the cheapest and most efficient way to keep your roof healthy and your repair costs low.

Stone Roofing specializes in commercial roofing, equipped with experienced roofers who can help you determine the best method to preserve your roof. If you find any signs that indicate you need roof repair, roof maintenance or a complete replacement, call Stone Roofing.

Clean Up and Maintenance Tips for Your Commercial Roof this Spring

The winter months can be hard on all commercial roofs.   Spring has come and the inevitable clean up and maintenance. Here are a few tips to get you started.

Why spring cleanup and maintenance is important for your commercial roof

  • To extend the lifespan of your roof – just like an automobile or home, the better you take care of it, the longer it will last. Your roof is an investment in the future of your business and that’s how it should be treated.
  • To save money—catching small problems early is a lot less expensive than dealing with a major headache later. This will also allow you add any necessary roof repairs to your budget so you won’t be hit with surprise costs later.
  • To make your roof more attractive – even though it’s up high, people do notice your roof. If it’s dirty, has roofing materials hanging over the side or appears to be in disrepair, this reflects badly on your business as a whole.

Activities you should perform in the spring to protect your commercial roof

  • Check the gutters
  • Trim those trees
  • Clean the roof
  • Inspect for damage
  • Prevent future impairment
  • Look around inside
  • Only use professionals
  • Perform necessary repairs

Without a functioning, well-maintained roof, your business suffers. Your commercial roof is the first line of defense against the elements. If your roof fails, everything inside is at risk. You must take care of your roof with cleaning and maintenance as if your business depended on it…because it does.

Don’t wait for big problems to occur before you fix the small things.

Don’t Wait Until It’s Too Late……

Prepare your commercial roof for the rainy season.

With the rainy season almost upon us, it is important to prepare your roof by performing annual inspections and making the necessary repairs to ensure your roof is ready to protect your investment to its full potential. Like your car, for a roof to function at its best, it requires periodic maintenance and inspections. This helps identify minor issues and repair them before they become major problems that can cause thousands of dollars in damage.

  • Make sure the gutters are clear of debris and that downspouts are clear and flowing.
  • Make sure that any debris that has accumulated on the roof is cleaned off and disposed of.
  • Pipe and vent flashings should be checked to ensure the flashings are solid and in place with no missing parts.
  • If your building has skylights make sure they are properly sealed and secured in place.
  • If your downspouts drain into interior drain lines or underground drains make sure these lines are clear and flowing as well.
  • Check flat roof surfaces for deterioration and damaged areas.

In order to avoid the costs and hassles caused by roof leaks (i.e.: frustrated tenants damaged interior belongings, concessions, etc.) an inspection of your existing roof assembly is highly recommended prior to the onset of the winter rains.

The Spotlight on Commercial Roofing – Cedar Sinai Los Angeles

Stone Roofing was proud to work on the Cedar-Sinai – Advanced Health Sciences Pavilion. The 820,000 square-foot Pavilion, located in Los Angeles accommodates 500 to 600 patients each day.  The Pavilion is designed with airy and comfortable spaces to welcome patients and visitors as they enter.

A Spray Polyurethane Foam (SPF) system was applied to insulate the massive rooftop HVAC ducting at Cedar-Sinai’s Advanced Health Sciences Pavilion, helping to achieve a LEED Gold certification. Since SPF acts as an air barrier, it also helps to reduce moisture infiltration, which is a source of dangerous mold and mildew growth and can cause severe health problems to its occupants. Coating the ducts with the seamless spray foam material creates a fully insulated, leak-free, efficient duct system.  Using a bright white coating in conjunction with foam helps to keep the sun from heating up treated, cooled air.

 Roofing System:  White Urethane Coated SPF: R-value 6.7 on three sides / R-12 on the surface.
