How Long Does it Take to Install a New Commercial Roof?
How long does it take for a professional contractor to install a new commercial roof? It’s an important consideration because you don’t want roof repair/installation
It’s no secret that Longmont gets its share of stormy weather, but few people realize the toll that weather takes on the average shingle roofing system. Even though most know that keeping their roof in good health is necessary, sometimes life gets ahead of us and we forget an annual inspection or two. Sometimes you move and even though you get the roof inspected for the sale, you forget about it for years afterward.
How it happens isn’t important, but fixing it is. This can all lead to damages that range from minor to catastrophic, but when you need roofing experts in Longmont, The Roofing Center is ready to be your trusted roofing resource.
The Roofing Center has been working to bring the residents and business owners of Longmont top-quality roofing systems, without going over-budget, since 1982. We were one of the first roofers to bring the advanced, stone-coated steel roofing material to the Longmont area, and to this day we are driven to remain one of the most trusted and reliable local roofing contractors. We have always been a local, family-owned business.

We’ll listen to your needs, and let you consult with some of the most experienced roofers in the area to create the solution that fits your needs and budget. We are one of the leading Longmont roofing service providers, and we bring generations of experence to every project we touch.
There aren’t a lot of things you can actively do to encourage roof health for your home, but one of the biggest things is making sure that your home has a roof inspection done yearly. This is a chance for a licensed roofing professional to get direct, personal experience with your roof to better understand your home’s needs. The Longmont area is no stranger to signifcant weather, and any storm with a little bit of wind can put traditional shingled roofs at risk for water penetration.
During your residential roofing inspection, your roofing professional will closely examine not only the outside of your roof, but the inside as well. They will need access to crawlspaces and attics to fully assess the potential for water infiltration, and they will also look at the eves and the various venting features of the roof to ensure there is no build-up of hot, humid air.
Once the inspection is done, your roofing partner will give you a full listing of everything they found, in an easy to read inspection report. Here, you’ll have a chance to discuss the urgency of any repair needs found in the inspection. This can help easily prioritize things into urgency levels of “fix this year”, or “fix in five years”, for example. You have no obligation to proceed with any work after getting an inspection, and you can act on the information however you wish.
Commercial roofing protects an immence commercial investment. Not only are there the products that are inside retail facilities, for example, but there are infrastructure value and human value. Making sure the commercial roof over a Longmont business is in good condition and has no leaks is imperitive to having the business operate safely. Failing to get the specialized personnel and materials needed to keep a healthy commercial roof can be a costly mistake.
Commercial facilities are built much differently than residential buildings, and this includes the roof. Commercial buildings often have flat roofs, or roofing with a very low slope, and the roof often houses most of the HVAC equipment. Without proper maintenance, a simple rain could result in standing water and high-voltage hazards on the roof, and leaks or even roof collapse on the interior of the buildings.
Inside the commercial building, air-handling equipment and networking components are housed in the roof, but a leak can create tens of thousands in repair or replacement costs, and can bring daily operations to a halt. If the leak is near a customer or employee area, going unnoticed and unaddressed it can create the right conditions for a slip and fall lawsuit. Preventing leaks can help prevent liability that can cause insurance premiums to go sky-high.
Asphalt shingled roofing does the job it needs to. The catch is, it doesn’t do it very well and it doesn’t do it for very long. Stone-coated steel not only offers better water resistance, but far greater resistance to damage from storm debris impacts. Additionally, while you may be able to comfortably get 20 years out of shingles in Longmont, you could feasabily get up to 70 years from stone-coated steel.
