Baltimore’s Preferred Commercial Low Slope Roofers

Commercial low-slope roof (flat roofing), is typically found on industrial and commercial buildings, like warehouses and factories. But most townhouses and apartment buildings have low-slope roofs as well. With the contemporary design being widely used, low-slope roofing is becoming more famous. As a reputable Baltimore commercial low slope roof service provider, I want to share some reasons the advantages of low slope roofing.

5 Benefits and Features of Commercial Low Slope Roofing

Commercial Low-slope Roofs are Windproof

Perhaps the main benefit of low-slope is that they can resist strong winds, which are significantly better than steep sloped roofs. If you are opting for a single-ply roof like EPDM or TPO, quality installation is crucial because a single hole can overgrow when exposed to strong winds.

Commercial Low-slope roof is Accessible and Simple to Maintain

Its nearly-flat surface allows the roof to be accessed without requiring a climbing ladder (take care not to go near the edge of your roof). If you want to perform a visual roof inspection, then covering the whole surface would be easy. With commercial low slope roofing, repairs can be completed within one day. Drain cleaning and maintenance is simple on commercial low slope roofs because technicians can walk safely and efficiently, despite the current weather conditions.

Commercial low slope roofing is Durable

Some low-slope commercial roofs like built-up roofing and bitumen are highly durable. If you want to transform your roof into the deck, then such commercial low slope roofing would be ideal. This can allow you to do a rooftop party for your staff without minding about damaging your roof.

Energy Efficient

Older commercial low slope roofing types like BUR are thick to reduce the heat absorbed via the roof. With less hot air reaching your living space, which assists in cutting your utility bills.

Easy to Install

Commercial low-slope roofs are simple to install; which makes it an excellent choice for building owners who are operating on a tight budget. Satellite dishes, solar panels, and air conditioners can be installed easily on commercial low slope roof than on high pitched roofs

Guidelines for Choosing the Best Commercial Low slope Roofing Contractor

Purchasing a new commercial low slope roof is a considerable investment. But before you spend time & money, know how to evaluate the commercial roofer who may be undertaking the project. Commercial roofers are not created equal; insist on hiring a professional!

Why a professional commercial roofer? A professional roofer has obtained intensive training, has the required experience and specialized knowledge to handle your project.

That said, how do you distinguish between unqualified contractors from a qualified one? There are no exact methods, but there are several things you need to look at before hiring a commercial low slope roofing

According to the National Roofing Contractors Association, homeowners should prequalify roofers before they hire them. Here are some tips that will help you select the right Baltimore commercial low slope contractor for your upcoming project:

A Thorough Understanding of Commercial Roof Systems

The introduction of new types of roofs and materials has adversely affected the roofing industry over the past decade. A professional commercial low slope roof contractor knows all the various kinds of roofs and will assist you to make the right decision for your commercial building. A commercial low slope roof contractor should be licensed and insured

Don’t forget to request your contractor to produce his insurance policy before he starts your project. Make sure that the policy covers both employee compensation and liability insurance. If your potential contractor is not well insured, then you may be forced to pay for accidents that occur onsite. Many states require that all roofers be registered or licensed. Before you hire any commercial low slope roofing contractor, make sure that he fully licensed and bonded.

Financial Stability

A good commercial roofer in Baltimore will be able to offer you his current financial details. This might include current liabilities, assets, and references from a reputable financial firm.
Obtain a written contract

Make sure that your potential contractor provides you with a written agreement that describes the work involved in your project. Also, ensure that the contract states when the project will start and end, and all other issues related to your commercial low slope roofing project.

“Your project isn’t fully finished until you’re fully satisfied”.


The answer to this depends on several key factors. The first of which is the size of your commercial roof. A 5,000 Square Foot roof will take a much shorter time to complete than it will to tear off and replace a 450,000 Square Foot roof. Second, does your roof have one layer or multiple layers? Multiple layers will likely add more time to the duration of your roof replacement. Other factors include the scope of the project and all of the components that need to be replaced. Third, the type of roof that you are looking to have put on is important. A roof coating can be directly applied over your existing roof and is the least disruptive. A coating would likely take less time than it will to tear-off and replace a TPO or rubber roof. Weather also plays a crucial role as Mother Nature can dictate if a project needs to be rescheduled. Prolonged storms could push the project’s completion date back.

Mother Nature is very unpredictable, and can disrupt even the strongest roof. Excessive winds & hail stones can penetrate and impact your roof. If left unrepaired, minor leaks and punctures can turn into major leaks or catastrophic roof failure. The best option after any storm is to schedule a free storm damage roofing inspection to have a professional provide an expert opinion. It is a good idea to have a roof inspection at-least twice a year for your commercial roof to check on its health bi-yearly.

When your flat roof starts leaking, that can serve as the most visible symptom that something in your roofing system is broken. If you have a newer roof, a leak may just be a minor and inexpensive fix. However, as a commercial roof ages, it becomes more brittle and vulnerable to the elements. It becomes more susceptible to each storm that passes through. One major wind storm or hail storm can cause catastrophic roof failure. The older a roof becomes, the more difficult it is to safely repair it. In some cases, repairs to aging roofs can cause more damage, and are difficult to guarantee as the patch may only hold for a short while. Not all roofs require full roof replacement, and some older roofs can qualify for roof restoration, which means having your roof spray coated which can extend the life of your roof for 10 or 20 years. A roof coating can cost 50% less than having your roof fully replaced, and is a strong option to consider for many.

What Should I Look For in a Commercial Roofing Contractor?


Should I Choose To Replace My Roof Or Restore It?


How Long Can a New Commercial Roof Last?



Not all commercial roofers have the same level of expertise or experience. The roof on your building is one of your most valuable investments, and keeps your tenants and their inventory safe. A leaky roof can disrupt a business’s day to day and damage valuable inventory. Moreover, a commercial roof replacement is an involved process, and the more efficient your roofer is, the quicker they can get out of your way and allow your business to resume normal day to day functions. You should consider a commercial roofers previous customer reviews, their gallery of flat roof jobs, their experience doing commercial jobs, the warranty, price, and the materials they are proposing to use. Quality and reliability of a commercial roofer are two of the most important factors.

This is an excellent question – with many building owners and property managers not even realizing that roof restoration and roof coatings are possible! In many instances, not all commercial flat roofs, low slope roofs & commercial metal roofs require being fully replaced! The solution is to have a roof coating applied over-top of your existing roof, restoring it, and providing it an extended 10 or 20 years lifespan. Roof coatings are less disruptive than having your roof entirely replaced. Roof coatings can also save you as much as 50% as compared to having your roof entirely replaced. Unfortunately, not all roofs are candidates, particularly if your roof has suffered extreme hail damage. This can be discussed during your free inspection.

This will depend on the type of roofing system that you decide to have installed on your building. Roof coatings, TPO, metal, rubber and rolled roofs all have different lifespans that we can discuss with you during your free inspection. Climate and environment can also play a role in the lifespan of your new commercial roof as hail and excessive wind can both wear down and break your roofing system. Lastly, the roofing contractor’s craftsmanship can impact how long your new roof lasts, as a contractor that does not adhere to manufacturer code and guidelines can not only void your warranty, but significantly decrease the lifespan of your roof.
