Re-roofing your commercial building is a big project. In fact, it may be one of your biggest business investments, so it’s critical you do your research and talk to a commercial roofing expert before choosing between a metal or flat roof. Climate, building slope, roof size, and building codes are all key points to think about if you are considering commercial roof replacement.
Your roof is one of the biggest investments you’ll make for your business, so it’s no surprise you want to make it last. A well-installed roof can last decades, but only if you take care of it with routine roof repairs and maintenance.
Metal roofs are gaining popularity in both commercial and industrial applications. There are many advantages of choosing a metal roof, from minimal maintenance to overall durability, to the ability to withstand changing seasons and extreme weather, like heavy snowfalls and high winds. As you research the best metal roof for your project, what are the important fabrication and installation factors to consider?
Pre-engineered steel structures with metal roofs gained immense popularity with building owners in the 1970s. Most often, the type of roof installed on these early buildings were what is commonly referred to as “screw down” metal roofs. They have provided long-lasting weather protection due to their durability and resilience and were workhorses in many different climate environments.
A.C.E. Building Service has a long-standing reputation in a variety of building areas, from foundations to roofs. And when it comes to roofing, the company’s proud of its 30+-year-affiliation with Butler Manufacturing. Butler Manufacturing offers the steel reroofing products that are an A.C.E. Building Service specialty. These roofs – including Butler’s MR-24 Metal Re-Roof System, which can be installed directly over an existing roof – are ultra-durable, adding decades to a roof’s life. The proof’s in the seeing: the first Butler roof installed by A.C.E. Building Service in the early 1970s is still in place, serving its purpose, and “you’d be hard-pressed to see a difference between that Butler roof and one we put on last year, it looks that good,” said Chris Herzog, LEED AP, project development, A.C.E. Building Service.
