After 20 years of experience and after laying over 6,000,000 square feet of material, the team at WeatherShield Roofing knows commercial roofing in Central Florida best. Commercial buildings often equipped with virtually flat or low sloping roofs in order to maximize efficiency and space. To properly service these challenging slopes, a commercial roofer should be well trained and highly experienced or problems in the future are an imminent reality.
Drainage is easily the biggest challenge of low slope roofing. As there is little opportunity for the water to naturally run off and drain, water is prone to pooling in low spots. Sitting water degrades roofing material and then invades these weak spots, making the chances of a roof leak drastically higher. Properly configurated drains and gutters are crucial.
Commercial roofing materials are also specialized to best serve low slope commercial roofing. Many of these materials are designed to be water and weather resistant, such as spray on coatings and TPO. These seamless roofing membranes offer excellent protection from the elements, as there are no seams where water and wind can whip in. More traditional roofing materials have also been further developed to be more environmentally and budget friendly.
