What to Consider Before Replacing the Functional Roof

December 17th, 2013

RoofReplacing any sort of roof is by no means a simple task, but when it comes to one that houses a building in full operation the task becomes even more complex. In the case of houses, most people are happy to temporarily move out while the project is being completed, but when it comes to commercial buildings it goes without saying that this is not an option.

Bearing this in mind, there are several factors that should be considered if you do need to replace a roof that belongs to a commercial property. Firstly, you need to ask whether or not you even need to replace it and while this will be a resounding ‘yes’ for most readers, it should be mentioned that most roof coverings can last for decades so you should check to see just how old it really is. As well as this, we’d urge you to think about the following…

Does it contain asbestos?

The word ‘asbestos’ is enough to scare anyone and it has been well-documented at just how prevalent and dangerous it is in the construction industry. Unfortunately, it’s even more common in industrial buildings, with older ones having a roof formed out of cement bonded asbestos. Naturally, many companies want to convert this to a more modern alternative, such as metal cladding, although you should bear in mind that this will add time onto the project. The rules for handling and disposing of asbestos are stringent to say the least and even if a company has vast experience with the material, it’s still going to take longer to complete than any alternative material.

Many people understate their importance, but the facts remain that any damage in this area can prompt thousands of pounds in repair costs in severe cases. Fortunately, gutters and drains rarely fail for no reason and by undertaking the correct maintenance tips, there should be no reason why yours cannot stay in good working order. We’ll now look at what you can do to prolong the lifespan of your gutters and drains and avoid those expensive repair bills.

Regularly clean the gutters

This is one of the oldest tricks in the book and it doesn’t matter if you carry out the repairs yourself or use a firm like MAE Roofing, it should be one of the first things that is carried out. Over time, plants, leaves and other debris can gradually collect in the gutters and this hinders their effectiveness.

Unfortunately, there are a whole host of issues that are associated with clogged gutters. There have been cases of gutters being completely detached from the wall because of the combined weight of the debris and water. Perhaps the most concerning problem for homeowners is the fact that water has nowhere to go through and this generally results in it running down the side of walls where it can eventually cause dampness.
