Roof material used in the manufacturing industry frequently takes a beating, above and beyond the normal wear and tear experienced by residential properties. Chemicals, exhausts and residues from the manufacturing process can break down most types of roofing materials more quickly than just sun, wind and weather.
Industrial complexes also seem to have more skylights to bring natural light to the interior. Penetrations in the roofing system are prone to leaks unless the roofing system is properly installed and maintained. In addition, extra safety measures and care must be taken with roofing systems for businesses with sensitive operations – like the semi-conductor or food industries – where dust and dirt falling from above can cause problems.
Roof failure is not an option for an industrial property and business disruption for repairs can be deadly to the bottom line. A leaking roof can cause damage to sensitive equipment, inventory and other assets, not to mention the risk to the workers on the premises. That's why it is so important to have a professional roofing company on hand, not only to perform regular maintenance, but to perform repairs when something goes wrong.
Many industrial spaces are broken up into smaller areas and leased to tenant businesses, all housed under one roof. Fox Roofing strongly recommends that proper roof maintenance can avoid property loss and unhappy tenant business owners. We offer a variety of flexible maintenance contracts and schedules.
