Your business is important. Whether you built the structure from the ground up or acquired an older building, the pride you feel when walking through the doors of your business is unlike any other. But, with endless meetings and employees to manage, it can be easy to forget to add roof repair and replacement to your never ending list of “things to do.”
The location of Oahu is tricky for commercial roofing because of the quirky and unexpected weather that mother nature throws our way. Thankfully, the professionals at True Home Hawaii, know exactly how to handle the unexpected. Our understanding of this beautiful island helps us install new roofs for buildings and structures that last. Let’s work together to ensure your business stays intact and protected for years to come.
Commercial Roofing Replacement & Your Business
According to a recent study, upwards of 90% of the roofing market is from replacement alone. With roof replacement comes communication between multiple parties, which can quickly become time consuming and overwhelming, especially if you have a company to run. True Home Hawaii, though, is here to relieve you of the responsibility of making sure things run smoothly. From talking to property managers and maintenance providers to material suppliers and zoning permit boards, our professionals will take care of communication and delegation in a prompt manner.
The Benefits of Commercial Roof Repair
Construction projects are increasing in Oahu as more businesses open and expand to meet our community’s needs. As local businesses acquire more properties, commercial roofing installation and replacement has become in high demand. To ensure your company remains successful and with a roof over your employees’ heads, commercial roof repair is vital—saving you time and money in the long run. In addition to this benefit, commercial roof repair also offers:
- Damage and loss prevention
- Prevent moisture absorption
- Increase durability and longevity
- Protects against leaks
- Boost building value
How to Tell If You Need a Commercial Roof Replacement
Your commercial roof is important for ensuring the workday flows smoothly. With rain, island storms, earthquakes, and other natural elements we can’t control, it can be difficult to identify when your roof requires replacement. Thankfully, we’ve got you covered.
Roof leaks are the number one sign that your roof needs a replacement or repair. Water damage can cause larger problems down the road, including mold and mildew growth, collapse or rotting of walls, and in some extreme cases, complete reconstruction of your building. Living on an island like Oahu, we undergo some extreme weather conditions that can easily take a toll on your roof.
If you’ve experienced areas where water is sneaking into the building, it’s time to call the professionals at True Home Hawaii. We’ll take a look at the damaged area and walk you through our process every step of the way. Depending on the amount of damage caused, we may be able to repair the leak, but it’s important to be prepared for a full roof replacement.
Energy Bill Increase
The roof on your business or large corporation doesn’t only protect your inventory and equipment from the elements, it also helps to regulate indoor temperatures and keep energy costs down. Over time, your roof can begin to degrade, causing a spike in your energy bills. This occurs when a roof is no longer capable of holding in the proper temperature and your HVAC system has to work twice as hard.
An energy bill increase is especially critical when living in a hot climate, since no employee wants to hear that the A/C isn’t working on a 95 degree day. If you’ve noticed a sudden spike in your energy costs, it could be a telltale sign that your roof needs to be replaced.
Hawaii is known for its rich history and historic buildings—one of the oldest historic commercial buildings being the Melchers Building in downtown Honolulu, Hawaii. Built in 1854, this building is still standing, indicating that the weather Hawaii faces and test of age can withstand time. That being said, age can take a toll on the roof of a commercial building and must be replaced as the years progress.
The average lifespan of a commercial roof is about 20 years, so if your building is nearing or surpassed that life expectancy, it’s time to have the professionals come inspect it. Age plays a factor in your roof’s condition because of the materials used and the climate it’s been subject to. If you’ve recently acquired an older building, the first thing you should do is call the experts at True Home Hawaii to come take a look and ensure the materials and structure are up to code.
