FAQ on Commercial Roofing in Dyersburg, TN
The roof on my building is leaking, will I need a complete tear off and replacement?
Commercial roofs are built to withstand decades of wind, rain and weathering. That said, leaks here and there are not uncommon. A minor leak typically doesn’t require a complete replacement of the roof. If your roof is leaking or has issues it can easily be patched up by a local roofing contractor that specializes in your roof's application.
A good quality patch job is far less expensive than replacing the entire roof, and it can help extend the life of the roofing system. Your roofing contractor will discuss your options, so you can decide whether a small repair is all that's necessary or a complete tear off and replacement is the best way to go.
Sustainable commercial roofing
Eco-friendly and sustainable roofs are becoming increasingly popular as a "greener" alternative to traditional commercial roofing. Sustainable roofs follow the standards created by the U.S. Green Building Council. An eco-friendly or sustainable roofing system has one or more of the following features:
- 50+ year expected lifespan
- Superior R-value
- Roof material is made out of recycled materials
- Vegetative roofing (also called a "green" or "living" roof)
When searching for a roofing system, look for one that has the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) stamp of approval. These roofs are recognized as green/sustainable commercial roofing choices according to the U.S. Green Building Council's standards.
