We Can Help with Rooftop Grease Contamination

Commercial kitchens endure a lot of abuse, activity, and scrutiny. If you manage or own a restaurant or commercial kitchen, you’ve likely invested thousands of dollars in cooking equipment, from grills and fryers to rotisseries and woks.

Inevitably, that equipment will produce airborne grease. You rely on hood systems, kitchen exhaust fans, and ductwork to move it up and out of the kitchen. Regular roof inspection and maintenance should also be a part of a rooftop grease remediation plan.

Select the Best Coating for Flat Roof Repair

Although many buildings are said to have flat roofs, that is somewhat of a misnomer. Flat roofs are slightly sloped so that rain, snow, and other moisture can properly drain. So, even though they appear to be completely flat, they are not. However, their mostly flat structure allows for more efficient use of space and they are easier to install. Typically, the cost to maintain them is less expensive than the cost to maintain a pitched roof.

If your building endures dramatic climate changes throughout each season, its roofing material will be put under more stress than commercial buildings in more temperate, even climates. Temperature extreme can reduce the lifespan of a commercial roof. A roof that is accessed a lot will also wear down faster.

Commercial Roofing: Expectations Versus Reality

Commercial roofing systems are typically made up of tar and gravel (built-up), sprayed polyurethane foam, single ply, PVC and TPO (thermoplastic), EPDM or thermoset roofing, metal roofing, and modified bitumen roofing.

These differ from residential roofing materials because the roofs on commercial buildings protect entirely different structure types. Commercial roof systems protect low-slope and flat roofs and help remediate leaks, water ponding, and other roof repair needs specific to an industrial building or warehouse.

Yet just as there are myths circulated regarding residential roofing, the commercial roofing industry has myths to debunk. We’ve listed a few of them here to help property owners make the best decision regarding the life of their building’s roof.
