I can’t afford catastrophic roof failure
I’m kind of torn between the TPO roofing or the EPDM roofing.
I fell really bad for my competitor. He lost hundreds of thousands of dollars in merchandise when his commercial roof collapsed. I don’t know if he will ever be able to recover from that. Not that it would be any skin off of my teeth if he didn’t. However, his misfortune got me thinking. What is keeping the same thing from happening to me? I asked a roofing contractor buddy of mine about how to avoid this kind of damage and he told me that I should have a roof inspection done at least once a year. He said that professional roofing contractors go up and take a look at your roof, make sure it’s in good shape, and even do any patches or repairs that may be required. That sounds like a pretty reasonable preventative measure to me. I decided to hire my buddies roofing company to do the commercial roof inspection for my business. They did find a few areas of concern. Thankfully, they were able to repair the roof for the time being. However, they told me that I might think of getting the whole roof replaced within the next few years. There’s no emergency but they gave me some roofing options to start looking at. I’m kind of torn between the TPO roofing or the EPDM roofing. I have a big contract payout in about 6 months. I think after that, I’ll go ahead and get the commercial roof installation. I’d rather pay money now rather than lose all of my merchandise in January, when the rain hit.
