7 Things You Should Know About Commercial Roofing Services

As a business or commercial property owner, one of your top priorities should be to guarantee the safety of your structure, starting with the roofing system. That typically entails establishing proper construction and ensuring routine maintenance and repairs are performed as needed. With the help of professional commercial roofing products such as those offered by IMC Distributors, you can make sure that your roof is always in tiptop condition.

If you need commercial roofing solutions or services, here are a few factors you should consider.

Always Schedule an Initial Consultation

Any time you need professional services like roofing maintenance or repairs, it’s crucial to schedule an initial consultation. This gives you the opportunity to get to know the company and their employees. In addition to an official inspection and providing you with a project estimate, you’ll also have the opportunity to ask questions and get more information about the nature of the project, which is important.

General Inspection and Damage Assessment

Canadian winters can be particularly brutal on roofing materials. For that reason, it’s important to get your commercial roof inspected at least once every six months by a professional roofing company. They know what types of damage to look for and how to perform repairs using the proper materials, including chemically resistant and waterproof coatings such as polyurea and polyurethane. Professional roofers can also apply protective coatings as a preventative measure to extend the lifespan of your roofing system.

Project Range and Estimates

Always make sure to consult with multiple roofing companies and get a few quotes before deciding which one you want to hire. Speaking to a few roofing experts in your area will give you an idea of the work that needs to be done. Consider your budget in the process, but also keep in mind that you get what you pay for. Google searches on the products suggested for your roof, and the company looking to install them, will provide a wealth of information.

Best Materials for Roofing

Roofing materials are also an important consideration. You want to make sure that your roofing contractor is using high-quality roofing materials that are going to last for a long time and withstand a variety of hot and cold weather conditions. Whether it be office furniture, computers, servers and files, inventory, equipment, etc., you have a lot invested in your commercial building. By keeping a water-tight roof you are protecting that investment. Inquire about the roofing materials they plan on using during the initial consultation and then do your own research after the fact. IMC Distributors provides durable and reliable roofing solutions that are perfect for flat and low sloped roof applications.


As always, it’s crucial to ask about what kind of warranty the roofing company offers. Typically, roofing companies should provide a comprehensive manual labour, parts, and materials warranty to protect you in the event that the roofing system sustains damages within a certain period of time. Ask about this during the initial consultation and always make sure to get it in writing so that there aren’t any surprises later on. The hope is that you should never have to cash in on a warranty, but it’s always a good idea to be prepared for the worst-case scenario.

Cost of Installation, Repairs, and Maintenance

Budget is another important factor that all business and commercial property owners must keep in mind when hiring a roofing company to install, repair, or maintain their structure. Unfortunately, roof maintenance and repair is never something you should skimp on. Commercial roofs serve a number of important purposes. The main one is that they protect the interior of your business from external elements that can cause significant damages. These include pests, animals, and weather-related elements like cold and hot temperatures, snow, ice, rain, and more. Get a few quotes from some reputable roofing companies in your area.
