Commercial Sheet Metal FAQs

  • Why is my flat roof leaking?
    Flat roof leaks can occur due to various reasons, including aging materials, improper installation, lack of maintenance, weather damage, ponding water, or punctures from debris. Our expert team will conduct a thorough inspection to identify the specific cause of your flat roof leak and recommend appropriate solutions to address the issue effectively.
  • How does drainage work on a flat roof?
    On a flat roof, drainage typically works through a system of internal or external drains, scuppers, or gutters designed to channel water away from the roof surface. These drainage features are strategically positioned to ensure proper water flow and prevent ponding, ultimately directing rainwater towards downspouts or drainage pipes that lead away from the building. Regular maintenance and cleaning of these drainage elements are essential to ensure optimal functionality and prevent water buildup, which can lead to leaks or structural damage over time.
  • How do you maintain a flat roof?
    Our comprehensive maintenance programs for flat roofs are designed to ensure the longevity and performance of your commercial roofing investment. Through regular inspections, cleaning, and debris removal, we proactively address potential issues before they escalate, preserving the integrity of your flat roof. Our experienced professionals meticulously inspect and repair sealants, flashing, and drainage elements to maintain watertight seals and prevent leaks. By enrolling in our maintenance program, or customers receive regular documentation and reporting of the roof's condition, along with recommendations for ongoing care. Not only does this proactive approach minimize the risk of unexpected issues, but it also helps uphold manufacturer warranty requirements, ensuring continued coverage and peace of mind for our clients.
  • How do I know which type of roof is right for my business?
    Determining the right type of roof for your business involves considering various factors such as budget, building structure, climate, and specific needs. Our team will assess these factors and provide expert guidance to help you make an informed decision. We will evaluate factors such as the building's size, usage, and location to recommend the most suitable roofing materials and systems. A key aspect of our approach at Borntrager is our commitment to using the best products on the market to ensure the longest possible lifespan for your commercial roof. By partnering with trusted manufacturers and selecting high-quality materials, we ensure durability, reliability, and long-term performance.
  • Why would you recover a flat roof and not replace it?
    Recovering a flat roof instead of replacing it can be a cost-effective solution when the existing roofing structure is still in relatively good condition but requires reinforcement or enhancement. By recovering the flat roof, we can install new roofing materials directly over the existing roof, saving time and labor costs associated with removing and disposing of the old roof. This approach also minimizes disruption to the building's operations. However, it's essential to assess the condition of the existing roof carefully and consult with our expert team to determine if recovery is a viable option based on factors such as structural integrity, building codes, and long-term performance requirements. It's not always recommended to recover a roof if the existing substrate is significantly damaged, deteriorated, or if there are underlying structural issues that need to be addressed. In such cases, a complete roof replacement may be necessary to ensure the long-term stability and integrity of the roofing system.
