As experienced roofing specialists, our recommended professionals offer a full range of roof repair and restoration for any commercial roof. They understand the essentials of continuing to monitor the condition of commercial roofs and how important repairs and replacement is when required.
While to the untrained eye a roof is simply a roof, but there are some major differences between residential and commercial roofing. Although damage to either form of roof can be costly, there are some differences that highlight why you need to choose a commercial roofing specialist for your business.
While the materials used for residential roofing can vary, typical commercial buildings tend to have flatter slopes and therefore need the appropriate materials for a quality installation. Commercial roofing materials include asphalt, tile, ceramic, slate or metal.
Another difference between residential and commercial roofs is the design. While the typical residential roof has a steep slope, commercial properties tend to have a lower sloping roof or an entirely flat design. These designs tend to need more maintenance and require larger space repairs of the sections that are installed. There are a few considerations involved in the typical design of commercial roofing including the need to cover a greater area and the weight of any equipment that needs to be housed on the roof.
While the typical residential roof is fairly easy to design and install; the only obstacles are usually the chimney, a commercial roof requires a skilled professional familiar with designing a roof around airflow systems, external piping, and smoke stacks.
Commercial roof designs can be created with felt, asbestos, cladding and a variety of other materials. Unfortunately, none of these materials are impenetrable and can degrade over time. Whether your roof is affected by severe weather or has started to deteriorate even a small leak can be a serious disruption to your business. Although a water leak is problematic in a home, it can be disastrous for a business. Not only are you likely to have more costly computer equipment, but there is also the potential for expensive stock damage. Additionally, the repairs are likely to result in downtime that can make or break a small to medium enterprise.
Maintaining your commercial roof can protect your investment and help you to retain the full value of your commercial property. Regular maintenance can help to keep your operation running smoothly throughout the year and provide you with the greatest cost efficiency. Although spending money on maintenance may seem like just another business expense, it can keep your property secure and your business watertight, regardless of the weather outside.

Outstanding service from Ben. He kept in touch, provided a competitive quote, arrived when he promised, carried out the work and kept me updated on progress, finished the job to a high standard and all in a friendly and professional way. I would not hesitate to call on his services again when my other tiled roofing repairs are needed. Highly recommended.
Full roof re-tile done. Agreed a great price, work was started within 2 weeks. The driveway was swept spotlessly clean each day. The new tiles look great. There were a couple of areas of the fascia that had come away with the vibrations of the work and they even came back once the job was finished to correct those little areas to make sure that we were 100% happy with the job. I'd recommend Trevor and his team to anybody. He gave good advice and explained the details of the job to us every step of the way.
A big thank you to Trevor and his crew, for a good job. Very friendly and polite and always cleaned up after themselves. I would recommend Northern Roofing. Thank you once again.
Thoroughly recommend this company. Our roof was in a real state (300 year old barn.). Fair price and they kept to it. Always tidy and courteous. Completed in half the time we expected.
Trevor and his team were efficient and reliable and communication was excellent at every stage of the job. Nothing was too much trouble- for instance, Trevor sourced Welsh green slates to replace damaged slates which matched the existing ones perfectly. Mick and Dean worked really hard and we are really pleased with the final result.
The job was completed quickly and as specified. New roof tiles, felting and new gutters. The price was competitive too.
Would definitely recommend - Trevor answered all my questions I had - the team worked very quickly and effectively. Love my new roof!
