COMMERCIAL ROOFING IN EDMONTON
When it comes to commercial buildings, safety and security are vital. The public is putting its trust in you, and in return, you must make certain they are always protected when in your place of business. All Roof Edmonton offers the expertise you need to make certain your building is always at its best.
WHY COMMERCIAL ROOFING IS SO IMPORTANT
A safe and well-maintained roof is a vital component of any building’s structural integrity, and that’s why the importance of commercial roof repair is so great. A well-built roof protects the building’s interior from severe weather damage and can even help with fire prevention measures. A variety of problems can plague your commercial roof’s health such as standing water, blisters, and gaps in flashing. It is absolutely imperative to upkeep commercial roofing so that massive repairs don’t cause major financial hardships later.
Most roofs are made with materials that are meant to be flexible to a certain extent, but too much moisture or heat can create blisters that will allow moisture to seep in and weaken the structure. These issues prematurely age the roof and reduce its effectiveness to protect the interior of the building and its foundational supports from severe rain, debris, and wind perils. All Roof Edmontons Expert Roofing Contractors are able to inspect your commercial roof to ensure you know what the true lifespan of the current condition of your roof is or has left.
Standing Water and Intrusion
Standing water has an abundance of adverse effects on a roofing system. It can lead to leaks that can deteriorate your roof leading to water intrusions that often cause a variety of health hazards like bacteria and mold. Unpleasant musty smells can also signify that water has infiltrated the roof or other parts of the building. Standing water will also severely weaken the roof’s supports as materials like wood shingles and metal shingles decompose and rust. All Roof Edmontons expert Roofing Contractors are able to spot the signs right away! Do not hesitate - Call All Roof Edmonton Now!
A Roofing design is fundamental to a roof’s durability and lifespan. A rooftop in Vancouver will require different specifications than one in Edmonton or Calgary. It’s essential to build the right type of roof for your building and your environmental surroundings. The Expert Roofing Contractors at All Roof Edmonton are the ones to call for all your commercial roofing needs.
Roof Drainage and Gaps in Flashing
Proper drainage is critical to your roof’s health and lifespan. If drains or scuppers become clogged with waste and debris, then the water pools on the roof. Gaps in flashing on the roof often cause water to permeate the building. Also, cracks or worn seams on the roof will allow water to gain access into the interior of the building. Standing water is heavier than you may think and puts excessive stress on the roof and other structural components. Skylights are other areas that may potentially cause leaks if the seal around them is damaged. Have the Expert Roofing Contractors at All Roof Edmonton inspect your Commerical Roof today!
When it comes to the integrity of any building, the roof is where it starts. Having a well-built and well-maintained roof is vital to keeping your building in its best shape. Not to mention that the better your roof is, the safer your building is for everyone inside. All Roof Edmonton knows that Commercial roofing is nothing to take lightly, and we understand the gravity of every installation, repair, and replacement we do for our commercial clients.
The roof is a commercial building’s first line of defense from natural hazards such as wind, rain, fire, hail, ice, snow, and extreme heat. It is also the most vulnerable part of your building. Every day, your roof is exposed to weather and other elements that may contribute to decay and deterioration, increasing the risk of damage to the roof itself and the contents below it. Having a roof that “protects the building” starts with design, materials selection, and installation at the time a facility is built or remodeled—events that occur infrequently and may be outside the scope of most businesses ongoing activity. But it also includes a regular program of inspection, maintenance, and repair—activities that should be part of your operational planning in order to prolong the useful life of your roof and make sure it does its job in protecting your business from weather damage.
Signs of serious problems may be apparent even from inside the building. Water stains on a ceiling may signal a leak, which can be caused by a crack or hole in the roof. It’s important to understand that even the smallest leak can be a sign of big trouble. Similarly, if the building has unexplained mold or odors inside, this may indicate a roof leak resulting in water penetration. While internal water damage or mold may signal trouble above, it’s also important to visually inspect the roof itself to look for problems that are likely to worsen over time.
The best way to avoid roof-related problems and strengthen weather resistance is through regular care and preventive maintenance. Proper maintenance also prolongs the life of a roof and in many instances will allow for “repair” instead of “replacement” when a problem is identified. The frequency of inspections for routine maintenance depends on several factors, including the age of the roof, recent weather events, rooftop foot traffic, and conditions identified during previous inspections. That said, scheduling inspections every 6 months (fall and spring) is an effective way to make sure they are not sidetracked by the press of other important business.
With All Roof Edmonton, you don’t have to expect the unexpected. Instead, you can plan for it. All Roof Edmonton can offer you a program of regularly scheduled maintenance to ensure that your roof is always kept in excellent condition. This allows the experts at All Roof Edmonton spot the need for a repair before you do, at which point it would likely be a much bigger problem and a much costlier repair.

ASPHALT ARCHITECTURAL SHINGLES
Roofing shingle technology has changed drastically over the last several years. Architectural fiberglass roofing shingles have replaced the older 3-tab shingle design, which means that asphalt shingles are much sturdier, they are less prone to curling, lighter, and more customizable than ever. All Roof Edmonton understands that your roof and your business are important investments, and All Roof Edmonton Expert Contractors are here to help you protect this investment with a high-quality roofing package for asphalt shingles.
Out of the various types of shingles on the market, asphalt architectural shingles are the most commonly used. These roofing shingles have earned their rank due to their affordability; they are easily the most price-friendly option you can choose. Asphalt Shingles come in two standard design options: Architectural (also known as Dimensional) Shingles, and 3-Tab Shingles. 3-Tab are essentially flat simple shingles with a uniform shape and size. They use less material and are thinner than Architectural Shingles, and are therefore lighter and lower cost for both the material and the installation.
They also do not last as long or offer Manufacturer's Warranties as long as good architectural asphalt shingles. 3-Tab are still the most commonly installed in lower-value homes, or smaller businesses such as those used as rental properties. However, they are declining in popularity in favor of the architectural style. Dimensional, or architectural roofing shingles are thicker and stronger, vary in shape and size, and offer more aesthetic appeal; casting more distinct, random shadow lines better mimics the appearance of traditional roofing materials such as wood shake shingles. The result is a more natural, traditional look. While 3-tab roofing shingles typically need to be replaced after 15–18 years, Dimensional typically last 24–30 years.
With asphalt shingles, you want to make sure you have the proper roof system in place to protect your property. Whether All Roof Edmonton is installing a new roof or removing older material, a good roof starts with a clean, well-structured roof deck. Roof decks can consist of plywood, OSB, or board decking. Some things that All Roof Edmonton Contractors look for are roof rot, the strength of the decking, and spacing between boards.

A shake is a basic wooden shingle made from split logs. Shakes have traditionally been used for roofing and siding applications around the world. Higher-grade shakes are typically used for roofing purposes, while the lower grades are used for siding. In either situation, properly installed shakes provide long-lasting weather protection and a rustic aesthetic, though they require more maintenance than some other more modern weatherproofing systems.
The term shake is sometimes used as a colloquialism for all wood shingles, though shingles are sawn rather than split. In traditional usage, "shake" refers to the board to which the shingle is nailed, not the shingle. Split wooden shingles are referred to as shag shingles.
Keeping in mind that there are different grades and thicknesses of cedar, call for your fee estimate for quality at the best price.
Are you looking to remodel your business? Do you want a roof that is durable and stylish and a conversation piece? Do you also want a roof that saves you money on energy costs? That is efficient and is environmentally friendly? If you answered yes to any of these questions you should consider metal roofing. All Roof Edmonton has commercial and residential metal roofing options that will ensure your home or business safety and value.
As the name suggests, metal roofing is a roofing system made out of metal. There are many different types of metal roofing offered by All Roof Edmonton expert roofing crew, including steel roofing, aluminum, copper, stainless steel, and alloy metals. Roofing can be installed as metal roof panels, as tiles, or as standing-seam systems.
You need a roof that can handle the heavy snow of winter, as well as the heat of Alberta summers. Metal roofing systems provide a light-weight-solid roofing material that resists corrosion and fierce weather. Many roofs need to be replaced after 10-20 years of useage. However, metal roofs can last at least 40 years, if not longer. Additionally, metal roofs are fire-resistant, making business safer and more secure than other popular options.
One of the most durable materials to use on your roof. Most commonly used in commercial and agricultural applications, however there are some architectural designed metal roofs available for commercial roofing useage. A metal roof provides many years of durability and fire resistance. Metal roofs can last up to 100 years. Because of their longevity, most metal roofs are less expensive than asphalt shingles in the long term. Metal roofing can consist of a high percentage of recycled material and is 100% recyclable.
It does not get as hot as asphalt roofing materials, and it reflects heat away from the building underneath in summertime. Metal roofing is also lightweight, creates little stress on the load bearing roof support structures and can be installed on top of an existing roof. A lightweight roof is very useful for large and or old structures, as it helps to maintain the overall structural integrity of the building. Despite its light weight, metal roofing provides increased wind resistance when compared to other roofing materials. This is because metal roofing systems use interlocking panels.

SBS LAMINATED SHINGLES
Known as a rubberized polymer, SBS stands for styrene-butadiene-styrene. This substance is blended with standard asphalt used in roofing shingles to give the final product a rubber-like quality. Essentially, the modified shingle is able to flex and resist damage when impacted by external forces such as hail. This technology has proven to provide superior impact, wind and water resistance. As added benefits, SBS shingles can be installed in lower temperatures and are shown to retain their surface granules better than traditional asphalt products.
EXTREME WEATHER PROTECTION
SBS Shingles provide a durable barrier against extreme weather, receiving the UL 2218 Class 4 Impact Resistance classification, the highest rating possible. In a Class 4 rating test, the SBS shingles withstood a simulation of hailstones impacting a roof at 90 mph (144 kph) without sustaining damage.
Manufacturing of the SBS shingle technology begins with a durable base layer of fiberglass mat. The unique fiberglass mat is coated on both sides with the SBS modified rubber asphalt which provides tensile strength and increased flexibility, protecting your investment. Additional weight in the shingle provides long term weatherability and granule adhesion; to offer maximum protection.
SBS MODIFIED ASPHALT
The rubberizing aspect of SBS increases flexibility and weatherability for your roof. The thermo cycling resilience of SBS modified asphalt provides greater granule adhesion for the shingle, which creates a better barrier from the elements. When granules stay on the shingles, your roof lasts longer.
One of the most critical aspects of a successful roofing project is correct shingle installation. Improper fastener placement is the leading cause of incorrect shingle installation and can subsequently void the warranty.
RAIN SEAL PROTECTION
The SBS shingle is manufactured with a double line of defense in the critical area for a laminated shingle, with double SEBS asphalt rain seal protection. The SEBS asphalt has elongation capabilities of up to 800 percent, making it flexible down to zero degrees. The rain seal remains intact through the freeze and thaw cycle. SBS asphalt is superior to oxidized asphalt because of its cohesive and adhesive properties. The adhesive properties of SEBS asphalt join the shingle together while the cohesive properties prevent it from breaking apart from itself.
SBS shingles (polymer modified shingles) are given a class 4 impact resistance rating against hail and provide superior granular adhesion and retention. These “rubberized” shingles have a better resistance in harsh climates due to the more pliable nature of their asphalt. Many insurance companies provide homeowners with insurance premium discounts if installing SBS shingles with a class 4 impact rating. SBS shingles are a good choice for Edmonton and properties throughout Alberta due to their superior impact and wind resistance. If you are looking for a resilient product featuring the latest in roofing technology, this is a great option. All you need to do is contact the experts at All Roof Edmonton today and they will get you started on your SBS Shingle journey.
