How is commercial and industrial roofing different from residential roofing?
Commercial and Industrial Roofing is a very complex and unique trade. Roofing systems have been developed to resist exposure to wind, rain, snow, hail, and damage from traffic. Newer roofing systems have been developed to help save the building owner money on utility use. If environmental issues are high on your priority list, there are "green" roofing systems to help building owners protect the environment.

How can I extend the life of my roof?
There are many ways to extend the life cycle of a commercial or industrial roofing system:
1. It is especially important to control access to your roof to help reduce damage to your roofing system. Limit the traffic on the roof system to reduce wear and tear on the membrane which can cause punctures, rips, or tears.
2. Ensure that regular inspections are conducted to identify debris which may collect on the roof. Debris can be from HVAC work, items thrown onto the roof, or just from trees. Any debris left on the roof system may cause damage to the roof.
3. Keep the roofing system clean. If your roof collects any grease or chemicals, it is vitally important to keep those areas clean. Any chemical left on the roofing system can cause serious damage to the roof.
The easiest and least expensive way to extend the life of your roof system is to have our professional roof crew inspect your roof system and perform any necessary minor maintenance on a regular basis. The sooner problems are identified and repaired, the better. Aksarben Roofing can be your strategic partner in extending the life of your roofing system with our yearly service agreements.
