Empire Roofing provides a wide range of services from commercial properties, industrial, office, retail, institutional, etc. All of Empire Roofing’s services are designed to assist building managers plan for roof replacement and extend the life of operational roof systems.

Preventive Maintenance

Unseen problems may be looming and will be revealed by periodic inspections, subsequently extending the life of a roof by many years. Even newer roofs should be inspected once a year to identify trouble areas such as cracked plumbing stacks and half-full pitch pans – issues easily corrected if found early.

Protect Your Tenants

In rental buildings, regular roof inspections also monitor unauthorized penetration points made by tenants. To avoid unauthorized roof penetration points that potentially invalidate roof warranties*, incorporate roof system details into lease agreements and require tenants to work through leasing representatives and authorized roofing contractors on all added penetration points.

Repair vs. Replacement

When do you replace a roof rather than patch and/or repair it?
Maintenance and repair of wall flashings can help extend the serviceable life of the roof system. Once the field (flat section) of the roof starts splitting it is time to replace the roof. Field repairs will occasionally hold, but when they become a regular problem, failure will occur in the not too distant future.

Tear-Off or Re-Cover?

In a perfect world, all old, worn-out roofs would be torn off and a new roof installed. This, however, does not always happen due to budget constraints and/or existing structural conditions. New roofs are often put over old, which saves money. However, if the old roof is simply covered over without making sure all moisture is removed, the new roof will fail prematurely. It is usually preferable to tear off the old roof prior to installing
a new roof.
