Commercial Roofing FAQ

Commercial Roofing Frequesntly Asked Questions

How do I know if my industrial business needs a new roof?
One or two leaks are not a major cause for concern as long as they are mended by a certified commercial roofing contractor, such as A-1 Commercial Roofing. More than the occasional leak does mean that it may be time to replace your roof due to rising costs of repairs and the continual need for these repairs to be done.
How long will my commercial or industrial roof last?
Most roofing contractors would agree that there are a few factors that can contribute to the lifespan of your roof, but in general if the roof is properly installed then it should last approximately 25 years.
What will a new roofing system cost?
The answer to this can vary widely depending on your businesses’ size and construction. The best way to receive a solid, accurate estimate is to call A-1 Commercial Roofing to come and inspect your specific business.
What are my roofing maintenance responsibilities to elongate the life of my roof?
Generally, keeping your roof clean, especially gutters, down spouts, and drains, can help to maintain its lifespan. Most roofing companies will offer this service.
How long is the install process for my commercial or industrial roof?
This depends on the size of your specific business, as well as the weather conditions during the install process. A-1 will provide approximations as to start and finish dates when quoting your new roof install.
What is A-1’s roofing service area?
A-1 Commercial Roofing Specialists services lower Michigan and Northern Indiana. This includes Kalamazoo, Niles, Sturgis, and Portage in Michigan and South Bend, Warsaw, Michigan City, Lagrange, Auburn, and Angola in Indiana.
How long is your warranty for the roofs that you install?
