Flat roof replacement is a major capital investment for your business, whether you are in Naples or up in Collier or Lee county. It is also often a necessity, given Florida’s history of rough weather. The professional roofers of Kelly Roofing can offer advice built on solid experience.
Benefits of Flat Roofing
Low-slope roofing, often casually referred to as flat roofing, has a pitch as little as 0.25” per foot. This invites problems with ponding, compressed insulation, and major ultraviolet (UV) ray degradation from baking under the Florida sun.
Flat or low-slope roofing is a boon to commercial building managers, though, because it allows the roof to be used for HVAC systems, signs, radio masts, helicopter landing pads and more.
Kelly Roofing recommends Duro-Last single-ply PVC membrane for its durability, resilience, and resistance to UV damage. PVC holds up well under Florida weather, from sunshine to storms.
Signs Point to Flat Roof Replacement
Several wear indicators will tell you that you need to consider flat roof replacement:
- Increased repair costs
- Tears, open seams, or missing membrane
- Water infiltration
- Compressed insulation
- High humidity inside your structure
- Crazing, crackling, bubbles, buckles or other irregularities
