From new construction builds to re-roofing, we have something for everyone when it comes to flat-roof commercial buildings. Re-roofing can be quite intrusive for the property owner and tenant as there are people in and around the structure during the roofing process. Knights Roofing takes the utmost care and diligence in the work site’s safety and provides tenants with up-to-date information and progress to help the project go smoothly. Commercial flat re-roofing is typically needed because of recent or past concerns about the current roof, causing a failure that can’t be fixed through maintenance and repairs.

Understanding the types of flat roofing services available to you can be complicated, but we are here to help you find the right fit for your needs and project budget.

Signs your commercial building needs a new roof

  • You find yourself calling for roof repairs regularly
  • There is moisture leaking through the roof
  • The roof is sagging or bubbling
  • Water is pooling on the roof during extreme weather
  • Your energy bills are skyrocketing, showing your roof isn’t airtight

Types of Commercial Flat Roofing: Re-Roofing versus New Construction

When it comes to your commercial building, protecting your assets starts from above. Over time, flat roofs are more susceptible to leaking or damage as snow, rain, and debris collect on the roof surface and can melt if not attended to within a few days.  Do you find yourself needing to call for maintenance and repairs of your roof more often than not? Continuous repairs may be a sign that your commercial flat roof has failed, and it’s time for a new roof.

Unlike other roofing companies, we seek to provide you with a customized approach to re-roofing based on your needs and concerns rather than working around a set re-roofing service list from another roofing company. Our team from Knights Roofing will attend the site with the property owner and walk the roof to determine the best course of action based on the requirements of the tenants and the building. A full replacement project can be a lot of work and time to complete, but with the right strategic plan and materials, we can put together a replacement roof system that will suit the building and the needs of the owner for decades to come.

But where do new construction builds fit into the equation? Just as existing infrastructure must be protected, you must start on the right foot when it comes to new construction builds. New Construction roofing is an important part of building a new commercial space. Ensuring your roof is built with the highest quality materials and that architectural requirements are followed to the letter is imperative to ensure your roof doesn’t face issues down the road. We seek to complete your new flat roofing project correctly, the first time.
