Professional Low Slope Roofing

Low slope roofs are roofs that are almost completely flat, making allowances for water drainage. This sort of arrangement lends itself perfectly to accessibility and functionality; little wonder it’s most common in commercial buildings and larger applications across Indianapolis. Nevertheless, low slope roofs also work well with smaller, residential buildings, even though they’re not quite a common sight.

The reason for the relative rarity of low slope roofs on residential buildings can be put down to the fact that not so many Indy roofers have a real grasp of the unique benefits and challenges offered by low slope roofs.

That’s why it’s important to get skilled, qualified and experienced professionals to assist with the repair, replacement and installation of low slope roofs. Blue Ladder Roofing is a trusted roofer in Indianapolis to help you with an exceptional low slope roofing repair, replacement, or installation services.

If you’re planning to install a new slope roof or repair an existing one, you should get a professional roofer to handle your roof repair or installation. Blue Ladder Roofing is a trusted roofer in Indianapolis that would painstakingly attend to every detail in your roofing needs.

  • Durable

What are the Challenges with Low Slope Roofs?

Low slope roofs tend to suffer impacts from the elements, and this is more pronounced when it rains or snows. They do not encourage the flow of water in any direction, leading to pooling, which can quickly compromise the integrity of the roof.

Types Of Low Slope Roofs

The ideal low slope roof will score high marks for performance and protection, be wholly waterproof, and withstand contraction and expansion. Leading low slope systems include:

  • Single Ply

With a proven track record of excellence, single-ply thermoplastic membrane roofs are among the most popular options. Featuring heat-welded seams, this roofing membrane is highly versatile, dependable, and durable and boasts superior waterproofing qualities. Its heat-reflective capacities can help you save energy, and its fire-resistant abilities are also top-notch. Importantly, this roofing membrane is eco-friendly and offers a competitive life-cycle cost.

  • Built-Up Roof

This roof membrane is very well regarded for its strength and solidity, making it one of the more popular choices. Reinforced with bitumen to give it a watertight outlook and then coated to give it greater strength, this roof membrane ticks all the boxes for durability. It’s no surprise then that this roofing membrane is remarkable for optimum performance. On the flip side, though, it is not flexible, not eco-friendly, and not cost-effective.

  • Modified Bitumen

This roofing membrane offers the perfect blend of flexibility and strength. Solid engineering ensures that this roofing membrane scores top marks for performance while its accomplished waterproof qualities make it a perfect fit for several applications. When you purchase this roofing membrane, you get a proven performer capable of adapting to any weather condition. In addition to being offered at a competitive price, most modified bitumen systems also provide long term warranties.

Your commercial roof is constructed to divert water away from your building. If you are noticing leaks in your building, or stains developing, it can be a sign that something is awry. Other indicators that it may be coming time for a new roof is bubbles on the roof cover, leaks around flashing or the seams, old age, or wear and tear on your roof.

This is the most commonly asked question that we receive from both building owners, and property managers. The answer is, “it depends”. Our goal is to provide you with the most economical solution that will safely extend the useful life of your roof. If repairs are possible, we will make those recommendations. If a full replacement is required, we will provide those options as well. Age is a large factor in whether a repair or replacement is necessary.

Roof coatings are becoming extremely popular among educated property managers and commercial building owners. Not every roof has to be torn off and replaced. Roof coatings allow you the ability to extend your flat roof’s life from 10 – 20 years, without the cost or disruption of a full tear-off. Moreover, you can also save energy with reflective coatings, that help make your building more energy efficient! There’s a lot of reasons to consider coating your roof, if your roof is a candidate.

The time that it will take to install a new flat roof on your commercial building truly depends on several factors, largely the size of the job and your roof. Other variables will be the type of material that you are installing. For instance, coating your roof can take half the time as tearing off and installing a new TPO or PVC roof.

Absolutely! A large portion of our business is helping commercial building owners, and property managers with storm damage restoration following a hail or wind storm event. We can help walk you through the process, and ensure that your property is repaired to pre-storm damage condition. Storm damage to your building can be stressful, however, we work swiftly to help mitigate any further damage to your building (including water damage), and restoring your property as quickly as possible while minimizing disruption to your tenants or business.
