Are you looking into a new roofing system for your commercial or industrial building? Installing a new flat roof can be a pricy investment and one that you need consider carefully to make the best decision. Be sure that you’re making the best choice when settling on a new commercial roofing system, and contact the experts at East Coast Flat Roofing! Allow our team of roofing experts to walk you through the best choice in the industry so you know that you’re making the best decision possible.

Every flat roofing system has its own lifespan, based on factory testing and real-life results. That being said, if an annual maintenance program is established, and the roof is taken care of and repaired when needed, lifespans can be extended by years.

Even roofing systems such as Duro-Last Roofing Systems), which require little to no maintenance, need to be inspected every so often! Remember that the roof takes the hits from all weather conditions, substantially more than any other area of the building. When you take care of your roof, it will take care of you! Contact us if you would like an inspection of your flat roof.

Seasonal Elements to Your Roof

Summer Heat The average temperature of your roof over the summer months typically stays within the range of 100 degrees Fahrenheit. The Duro-Last roof membrane helps to reduce the heat that your roof maintains, and can keep your building cool with the reflectiveness that’s in the membrane.

It’s important to remember, that while a Duro-Last roof is built to last, it still takes in a slow deterioration from the direct sun rays and high temperatures of summertime.

Winter and Harsh Weather Conditions The roof takes in wear and tear throughout the year, and wintertime is no different. Your flat commercial roof is almost always in direct contact with high winds when they come through. In more severe weather conditions, hail damage, ice, and snow can also come about. If you live in an area that is exposed to harsh weather, roof inspections should be a part of your annual maintenance routine.

Duro-Last Roofing Systems

It’s simple to expand the lifespan of your roof! Studies show that Duro-Last Roofing Systems can last anywhere between 15 and 30 years. This is assuming that the proper maintenance was maintained, and any potential repairs were made in a timely manner by a certified Duro-Last contractor. Every extra year that you can maintain your roof, the more bang for your buck!
