The Benefits of Professional Roofing Replacement Compared to DIY Roofing

Both DIY roof replacement and professional roofing replacement have advantages, but which ones have more benefits for your business? Our team at Just Leaks will break it down for you, so you can understand why professional roofing replacement is the more logical, safer, and overall better option. 

It is always tempting to go the DIY route, having your building maintenance team handle it for you. It is still easy to think you would end up saving money in the long-run. A new commercial or industrial roof installed by professionals is not an inexpensive procedure. Still, there is a clear difference in price between doing it yourself and hiring a professional team that has many manhours of experience. If you go down the DIY road, you might find yourself spending more money than you budgeted, or perhaps needing more expensive repairs in the future. Sometimes, the benefit of saving money by doing it yourself goes out the window. 

If you plan on completing the project with your own maintenance team, you could put your business at risk. Here are five reasons how doing the roof replacement yourself could create problems for your business:

  1. Increased Workers Comp rates and risk of injury.
  2. Your team may miss out on essential steps vital to ensuring the reliability of your roof.
  3. Your team’s unfamiliarity with commercial roofing processes could jeopardize your entire roofing system and expose your business to many safety risks. 
  4. If a problem develops during the roofing replacement, are you certain your insurance will cover it?
  5. If equipment, people, or your products are damaged while the commercial roof is being replaced, do you carry enough insurance or cash flow to cover those damages?

When it comes to your commercial or industrial roofing system’s safety and reliability, it is always better to be safe than sorry. The team at Just Leaks can go over your options with you, ensuring you are involved in the process each step of the way.

If you think your roofing system needs a replacement, the team at Just Leaks would be happy to help. To schedule an appointment for a free roof estimate, call Just Leaks at (408) 249-4646.

Don’t Sweat It — How to Make Sure Your Roofing System Can Withstand the Heat

We all know how hot it can get during the summertime in the Bay area. Imagine how dreadful it would be if we couldn’t escape the heat to our cool, A/C blasting home. Think of how your commercial or industrial roofing system feels. They take the brunt of the sun’s rays, which is why we have to make sure we give our roofing systems a little extra TLC during the summertime.

By staying on top of your roofing maintenance, you can avoid potentially costly and dangerous repairs. This way, our team can carefully inspect your roofing system for any signs of wear and tear. We can develop a plan designed to ensure your roofing system’s longevity and quality that extends long past the end of summer.

When our roofing experts arrive at your commercial or industrial roofing system, we will examine the condition of your roofing system. We will carefully and thoroughly perform the following services:

  • We walk around your entire commercial or industrial roofing system, and we look for any pesky debris that could affect the condition of your roofing systems, such as mold, mildew, or grime.
  • We will check your roofing system’s metal strips, also known as flashing, around the vents and gutters.
  • If your roofing system has eaves or gutters, we will look there too.
    We will make sure no pesky pests are living on the roof.
  • If your roofing system is under any hanging tree limbs, we will decide whether or not to remove them.

These services are just examples of what our roofing technicians will perform during a visit to your roofing system. A qualified roofing team should only examine your roofing system as your roofing system is vital to your business’s overall success and operation. The team at Just Leaks meets all those criteria and more.
