Your roof is your home’s primary defense against bad weather. Unfortunately your roof accumulates weather damage over time. Long-term sun exposure can wear it down and make roof leaks more likely. In this post, Fortenberry Roofing, a top residential roofing contractor, discusses what you need to know about asphalt shingle maintenance during hot weather.
Today’s modern technology has created some of the best solutions to commercial roofing. You don’t have to automatically replace a commercial roof if there is an issue. Roof coatings can save you a lot of money and extend the life span of your roof by 10 years or more. In this post, Fortenberry Roofing, one of the top roof and siding companies in our area, discusses what you need to know about roof coatings.
The use of a coating system is a cost-effective way to prolong the service life of commercial roofs. The product forms a layer of protection against the weather, sacrificing itself to practically stop the aging process of the substrate. When applied properly, a high-quality coating system can add more than 10 years to a roof’s life.
In West Texas’s arid and semi-arid climates, Fortenberry Roofing considers metal to be one of the better choices for roofing. It’s not the most economical option on the market; that distinction is reserved for asphalt shingles. However, a metal roof is a great investment and you’ll likely get more than you bargained for.
When it comes to commercial roof ownership, the second-worst thing that could happen after premature failure is unnecessary replacement. Many property managers make the mistake of buying an entirely new roof when the existing one isn’t beyond saving. When only 10% of it is damaged, it doesn’t make sense to replace everything.
