COMMERCIAL ROOFING

As a building owner, choosing the right commercial roofing solution can be one of the most important decisions you can make. Choose the right commercial roofing system and protect your investment for decades. Choose the wrong system, be prepared to spend large amounts of money on constant repairs and possibly a complete replacement well before its time.

At Roof Smith we have a dedicated team of professional roofing technicians that have over 20 years of industry experience and we can advise you on the best course of action for a commercial roofing repair or replacement. The roof above your building is a four-stage system that operates dependently on each system to provide protection from the elements; surface treatment, ventilation, insulation and a drainage system are the components that make up the system. When one of these things fails, it causes stress on the other components causing degradation to your commercial roofing system.

Many older buildings have a combination of tar, paper and gravel that is applied in layers to seal the roof tightly to protect it against the elements with an average lifespan of only approx. 10 years.

The advent of new roofing technology has provided commercial roofing with a membrane system that offers clear advantages to the commercial roofing industry


  • Installation is quicker with the membrane system and it is

      environmentally friendly

  • The membrane extends the lifespan of the commercial roofing solution
  • The rubber membrane provides greater durability for the roofing system to stand up to the elements
  • Reduced post-installations problems arise with a membrane roofing system


Roof Smith uses two different varieties of membrane systems to provide commercial roofing system solutions. The most common is EPDM;
this solution encapsulates a rubber membrane with gravel ballast applied
to the top of it.

The other commercial roofing solution that is gaining in popularity is TPO - a relatively new technological advancement in roofing solutions and it uses heat to bind the membrane to the exterior to the building. TPO was designed for larger commercial roofing systems, is more cost effective and is white in design to reflect heat away from the roof and can assist in lowering building cooling costs. The certified technicians at Roof Smith are trained and experienced in installation of this type of commercial roofing solution and carry special insurance to work with this material installation system.

Roof Smith will send out a qualified roofing expert to inspect your roof's interior and exterior, diagnose the problems and recommend repair or replacement. The service comes as a no cost, no obligation estimate and when you chose Roof Smith to complete your commercial roof, you can count on a 10-year workmanship warranty on the work along with the material warranties that are available.
