Commercial Roofing

Kingsley Roofing will install and maintain the roof systems on a range of commercial premises in Northamptonshire and the surrounding area. This includes warehouses, office blocks and public buildings.

Commercial roofing will require a more detailed planning and installation process compared to a residential property. The most common roofing systems include low slope roofs, flat roofs and some pitched roofing. The size and shape of your building will dictate what you need, which is where our experienced team can advise on the best solution for you.

Commercial roof installation

When you’re planning a commercial roof there are several factors you need to consider. The location is quite important in terms of exposure to the elements. Rainfall, UV sunlight and even snow are factors that will dictate the design and materials you will need.

Business expansion and the need to increase the size of your building is worth bearing in mind. Which means installing a roofing system that can accommodate any extension work you may commission in the future. 

Maintaining a commercial roof

Commercial buildings are much larger than residential properties. Maintenance is carried out by dedicated individuals to ensure the upkeep of any of the building fabric which includes the roof. A roofing system is built with access in mind to ensure essential maintenance can be carried out.

The drainage system should be checked and cleaned regularly so water continues to drain away. These checks are also needed for roof covers, to remove any debris as well as identify missing or lose materials. It’s also advisable to assess for any wear or tear to the roof. As roofing specialists, we can advise on what you need to do and whether a repair or replacement is needed.

Frequently asked questions

Can you work from architects drawings?

Yes – we can provide full costings at architectural drawings for all your commercial projects.

When is it time to replace a commercial roof?

It depends on the extent of the damage. Over time most roof systems will suffer from wear and tear. The majority can be repaired but if the damage is extensive it might be worth getting a quote for replacing the whole roof. In many instances, scaffolding is required and if most of the roof needs repair it could save you time and money in the long run.

Flat roofs for commercial properties

Due to the size of many commercial sites and budgets, a flat roof system is often the preferred option. Installing a pitched roof could be very expensive due to the size of a building and the height you need to reach. It would also not be the best use of space as the attic area on a commercial property is used less compared to residential.

Installing a flat roof on a commercial site has a few additional benefits. Easy to access and maintain. You can walk on the roof to inspect the area. It also allows for air conditioning and heating units to be stored on rooftops. These are often much larger than the domestic equivalent and if the site is limited for space this is a good use of the roof area.
