Commercial and industrial roof repair and replacement projects have several unique challenges. Businesses have liability issues surrounding their physical structures; their buildings have to keep the business and its capital equipment intact as well as keep the workforce and clientele safe and comfortable. In some situations, such as with community centers, schools, and hospitals, protecting those inside the building from harm is the primary goal of a building. These types of buildings may also act as public emergency shelters for the community.
Commercial & Industrial
We apply all types of waterproof system and roof coatings for metal roofs and flat roof surfaces. The waterproof systems we use are: GAF Hydro-Stop System and Gacoflex S-20 system; each manufacture will give customer up to a 10 year warranty. For roof coatings to keep your roof life extended, we use elastomeric roof coatings and aluminum roof coatings.
We specialize in re-roofing all types of flat roofs for commercial and residential buildings. We go down right to your deck and replace what's deteriorated and install new SBS modified system or built-up system with hot asphalt.
We install TPO single ply roof systems with 20 year manufacturer's warranty for all types of flat roofs. We can tear-off down to the roof deck or go over existing roof surface according to building code.
Business as Usual
When an industrial roof repair or replacement is needed, it is also the goal for the roofing company to keep the business up and running with as little disruption as possible. This is especially true for buildings that have community roles, such as condominiums, schools, hospitals, and community centers; the need for people to have access to these buildings during or as soon as possible after a repair is important.

In communities with high storm damage risk, such as those in hurricane zones, commercial and industrial roofing decisions will involve hurricane-proofing a roof. Regular inspection and repair of areas that can allow wind and water incursion, such as failing flashings, gutters, and areas of roof-top utilities are carefully assessed, and roof damage is repaired as quickly as possible after a storm to prevent further wind and water damage.
Keeping it Green
In many communities, new standards for commercial and industrial buildings include environmental stewardship. Communities are enacting standards for green roofs, solar and water filtration systems on industrial roofs, net-carbon zero materials, energy savings, fully recyclable materials, and other environmental standards. Dan Tennis Roofing is aware of this rapidly changing field is ready for these new environmental standards.
In addition to assessing for damage after a storm, regular inspection will also include any weathering or aging of materials that have been providing some degree of weather and waterproofing. Especially for flat, solid surface roofs in tropical and subtropical climates, heat, humidity, and UV damage can occur quickly.
Several advances in materials used in roofing have provided new options that can improve UV protection, waterproofing, and energy savings. Several types of elastomeric compounds can be painted or sprayed onto a flat, solid surface roof such as a metal roof. This flexible elastic compound blocks UV light and prevents energy transfer through the roof. It provides water and wind-proofing and protects the surface of the roof from the natural hazards of the modern environment, including issues such as acid rain and mold and mildew incursion. It will slow the spread of fire across a roof.
With low VOC emissions, even the most sensitive members of the workforce and the public will not experience any problems with fumes after these roofs are treated with elastomeric compounds. These compounds can be placed on the roof with a brush, roller, or something similar, and the underlying roof does not have to be replaced and disposed of. Elastomeric compounds can be reapplied, if there is wear, and they have long manufacturer's warranties. In addition to the energy savings associated with elastomeric compounds, the costs surrounding the applications of these waterproofing and weatherproofing solutions have a very high return on investment.

Inspecting, Repairing, and Replacing an Industrial Roof
With the additional goals of protecting the workforce and materials of a business, and the additional liability issues an industrial enterprise holds, inspecting a roof and providing maintenance should take place at least twice a year, and after major storms to inspect for storm damage. Many communities traditionally have roof inspections prior to the beginning of the local storm season. Especially in storm zones, several areas of a roof will get a detailed inspection, looking for ways that wind and water can further damage a roof. Areas of flashing around plumbing pipes, HVAC equipment, and guttering can be damaged by wind; if the edge of this flashing becomes loose or lifts, during a storm it can allow significant water incursion into the substructure of the roof. In addition, pieces of metal flashing can become detached in high winds and turn into dangerous projectiles. This type of careful inspection and repair of flashing will be particularly important for roofs with architecturally unique roofs, or those with unusual rooflines.
Part of the pre-storm season roof inspection may involve looking at the overall threats to the building plant and roof, such as nearby overgrown trees, trees with dead branches, utility lines that need to be secured and updated, and similar potential damages. Older methods of roof storm preparation, such as securing weighted tires or sandbags onto roofs, are dangerous and ineffective. Anything unsecured on a roof during a storm can become a dangerous projectile.
Decisions to repair or replace are, many times, made by an inspection of the substructure of the roof. Whatever the type of roofing materials chosen, it must rest on an intact and functional substructure that does not show evidence of dry rot, insect damage, water incursion and mold growth, and other signs of wind or water damage. In addition, the need for a business to prove that the structure of the physical plant is intact and can protect the capital of the business may be required for various financial processes, such as insurance and bank loans.
Some industrial applications have specific engineering needs. If your roofing project involves engineered solutions for air flow, water filtration, or other specific needs related to the building envelope, we will be happy to work with the architects and engineers to provide the best quality roofing options.
