Running a business is demanding enough without having to worry about your roof, but when minor repairs can’t protect your assets, sometimes the best solution is to take the existing roof and replace it with a new one.

So I’m installing a new roof, now what?

  Consult with the experts at Nauman Roofing before deciding what commercial roof system to purchase. Flat roof replacement is a more complex process than installing a pitched roof. You need a specialized contractor that deals with flat roofs regularly, who understands the technology and can ensure a new roof is installed properly. Due to Pennsylvania’s climate, EPDM and TPO have a history of lasting only about 15 to 20 years. Which is why correct installation and quality materials will give you a roof that lasts longer and keeps complications from arising after the installation process is complete. You can trust Nauman Roofing’s expertise and care to professionally install your commercial flat roof safely.

Ask yourself the following questions:

  • What roofing system is most appropriate for my building’s needs?
  • Do I want a full replacement/re-roof, or just re-cover over my existing roof?
  • What is my time frame for completion?
  • How much is my budget?
  • Do I have any penetrations in my existing roof?  (stacks, vents, solar panels, etc.)
  • Does the roofing system warranty cover everything that I need?
