What is the life expectancy of a commercial roof?
When a commercial roof is professionally installed and maintained correctly, the average life expectancy ranges from 10 to 40 years depending on the materials that have been used. The most common materials used for commercial roofing are thermoplastic polyolefin (this material can last between 20 to 30 years), Ethylene propylene diene terpolymer (which lasts anywhere between 26 to 30 years), Polyvinyl chloride (which lasts from 25 to 30 years), and metal and asphalt commercial roofing (lasts between 35 to 40 years).

Commercial roof maintenance and what you need to know
There are many reasons why property and business owners need to stay on top of their roof maintenance, the main one being to ensure it reaches the longest possible lifespan before a replacement is needed. When obvious and simple maintenance is ignored, you will be left with costly repairs and even replacements in the future. A replacement roofing system is a big investment and, as such, it is within your best interest to ensure all the relevant maintenance steps are taken, such as removing debris frequently to ensure it is not collecting or sitting, maintain and look after the drainage system as well as the roof to ensure water runs off correctly and lastly ensure you are frequently observing from any possible damage that may have occurred and need repairing.
Signs your commercial roof may need a repair
Doing a complete replacement of your commercial roofing can be an expensive investment, however, this can often be avoided by keeping up to date with much-needed repairs. It is important to pay attention to the signals that there are repairs that are needed. One of the signs that repairs may be required for your roof is water that has invaded your premises with obvious signs of leaks or seepage. Mold growth happens when there is damp sitting in your building. If you see any mold or even feel elevated humidity, this may be a sign you need repairs. Another sign is a sudden increase in your utility bill, as roofing does not just prevent damage to the inside of your home, but it provides insulation. Deterioration of the supporting structures, which will look like sagging or low spots on your ceiling, can be another indicator and finally, if you notice bubbling of the walls or gaps in the seaming, you should give Irving Roofing a call to assist you right away.
Most common commercial roofing materials
When choosing the material for a commercial roof, each one has different benefits and will suit you differently. The kind of roofing that you choose plays an important role in the health and lifespan of your entire building. Most commercial roofing is flat or very slightly sloped. There are some roofing materials better suited to this application, such as metal roofing, modified bitumen roofing, thermoset roof membrane, thermoplastic PVC and TPO, and garden green roofing system.
