Flat Roof Replacement – Youngstown, OH

flat-roof-replacement-youngstown-ohFlat roofs are a popular choice for commercial and industrial buildings. They are among the most affordable and efficient roofing systems for large buildings out there. However, they also have a unique set of challenges – for one, due to their low slope, they tend to collect standing water, which can weather and deteriorate roofing materials almost faster than anything else.

If you are located in or around Youngstown, Ohio, and suspect your flat roof may have a problem, call the experts at First Class Roofing. With more than 15 years of experience, the professionals at First Class are qualified to inspect, diagnose, and fix your flat roof.

Repair Or Replace?

The First Class Roofing Difference

  • 15+ years relevant expertise
  • Solid company reputation
  • Professional treatment
  • Quality workmanship
  • Non-prorated warranties

At First Class Roofing, we understand that your commercial roof is a significant investment. That is why we strive to recommend repair or restoration whenever possible over replacement. However, if your roof has reached the end of its service life and needs to be completely torn off and replaced, you can rest easy knowing that First Class is equipped to handle it, no matter the size or difficulty.

Here are our rules of thumb when deciding if a roof can simply be repaired or if it needs replacing:

• Repair – If the membrane and insulation are in pretty good shape and the roof still has plenty of service life left, we usually recommend continuing with regular inspections and maintenance, a.k.a. professional repairs.
• Replace – If damages cover more than 25% of the roof, or if insulation has been compromised (gotten wet), we recommend replacement – especially if the roof is nearing the end of its projected service life. Although more expensive upfront, this is usually the better option over the long-term, as it lowers maintenance costs and increases energy savings immediately.

Flat Roofing Options

As a full-service commercial roofing contractor for Ohio, First Class offers a wide range of systems for your flat roof replacement. Below, we compare a few:

• PVC: We offer a great single-ply roofing product, Flexion®, a PVC-based formula. It is water-tight and extremely weather resistant. It is also resistant to fire and wind and boasts incredible flexibility and reflectivity.
• EPDM (rubber): The majority of low-sloped buildings are roofed in rubber. This is the most cost-effective option, and comes in a variety of thicknesses. Another pro is its ease of installation. Lifespan of this material can be relatively short.
• TPO: White thermoplastic olefin is extremely reflective, reducing heat absorption as well as energy costs.
• Modified Bitumen: This roofing system easily lasts 20 years or more, and is very durable, unlikely to develop cracks as some other materials often do. Highly rated against wind, fire, and hail. One drawback is its black color, which can increase your building’s heat absorption and strain on HVAC equipment.
