As one of the top commercial roofing contractors, Expert Exteriors offers complete, comprehensive roofing service and maintenance to meet your needs and fit your budget. This includes all commercial roofing systems and materials. We pride ourselves on being one of the most trusted commercial roofing contractors.
When you work with Expert Exteriors roofing experts, you can choose from a variety of proven, reliable commercial roof systems appropriate for your particular building and budget, including:
Asphalt roofs with shingles are the most common type of roof. Perhaps the most frequently cited benefit is the low up-front cost, with shingles costing less than other roofing material types. This fact alone accounts for the vast majority of shingle installs.
Shingles come prepackaged and ready to be immediately nailed to the deck, requiring less time and labor for both installation and replacement. Most shingles can be removed one at a time near the source of an issue, making them much easier and cheaper to fix in the event of damage or a leak.
Rubber roofs, also known as EPDM, offer a variety of benefits. One of the biggest advantages to rubber is the cost. Not only is the roofing material itself less expensive, but the product is also lightweight and the installation is fast and easy, reducing installation costs.
Rubber is also long-lasting and durable. Rubber roofs come in a variety of thicknesses. Most rubber roofs are laid in a single piece with few seams, which helps avoid the potential for water damage. Rubber can withstand high winds and hail. And because rubber is not susceptible to UV rays, a properly-installed rubber roof can last 50 years or even longer with minimal maintenance.
Rubber is fire resistant. Not only is such a roof almost impossible to set afire, but the rubber is actively resistant to all forms of fire and can slow a fire to the point that help has time to arrive.
EPDM roofs are also extremely energy efficient. An EPDM roof reflects the sun’s heat which can reduce cooling costs. EDPM also acts as insulation, trapping in heat to reduce energy costs in the colder months. Rubber also will not freeze or crack under extremely cold weather. Rubber is also one of the “greenest” choices that a homeowner can make, often made from recycled materials to begin with and 100% recyclable at the end of its life.
Metal Roofing is not only beautiful, but extremely durable and long lasting, often lasting 2-3 times longer than asphalt based roofing systems. Expert Exteriors offers two metal roof types: R-Panel and Standing Seam. Metal roofing is also a more “green” solution than other options, available in a variety of recyclable materials with heat barrier and reflective coatings, and panels that can easily accept solar cells for energy-efficiency. Lighter colored metal roofs reflect away much of the sun’s UV rays, which can help keep a building cooler and lower energy costs.
Additionally, due to the low weight of metal roofing (about half that of shingles), in many cases it can be installed directly over your existing roof, saving the environmental as well as financial costs associated with removal and disposal.
The Expert Exteriors team has decades of experience installing metal roofing in the Denver area. From first hand experience we know what works best from materials to installation.
TPO White Reflective Roofs reflect UV radiation keeping the surface of the roof and the building cool during summer months. This helps to dramatically reduce cooling costs, and also decreases the amount of carbon emissions.
These roofs are highly durable, flexible and versatile – resistant to tears, impacts, and punctures yet flexible enough to allow for building movement. TPO can be installed on low and high slope surfaces and can be heated and reshaped multiple times, which is particularly helpful when completing roof details. This flexibility also allows for a rapid installation and requires less maintenance throughout its life.
TPO membranes contain no toxic or hazardous ingredients and are fully recyclable.
Almost all types of roofs can be coated. Coating will extend the life of the roof, reduce temperature transfer into the building to decrease heating/cooling costs, and help mitigate leaks. Coatings can also improve the aesthetics of the roof.
Coatings are a great option for commercial building owners because they are generally about half the price of a complete re-roofing job, and typically deemed just as durable from an insurance standpoint. A properly applied roof coating can help extend your roof life 10 years or more.
Commercial buildings are usually subject to a different set of laws and codes than residences, and this can directly affect gutter size, material and placement requirements. There may also be environmental rules regarding how and where gutter downspouts can discharge runoff water so it doesn’t affect nearby property or overwhelm sewer systems. Expert Exteriors stays up to date on code requirements and can guide you when it comes to installing the proper gutters on your commercial building.
Your Expert Exteriors claim specialists will meet with you to review the scope of work provided by your insurance company in detail. This meeting is utilized to educate you on all aspects of the work, materials, process, scheduling, pricing, as well as addressing any questions you may have. All questions are good questions. We are here to make this an easy and stress free process for you!
Generally, you will be given two checks which will equal the full Replacement Cost Value (RCV) of the work to be completed. The first check cut to you is the Actual Cost Value (ACV). This amount is what your material is worth. This check will have your deductible taken out of it, as it is your responsibility to pay the deductible to Expert Exteriors. This is to be paid once materials are delivered to your property. The second check is called the depreciation check. This check is to be paid once all work is completed, and you are satisfied. If you have a mortgage on your house, it is important to contact the mortgage company immediately after our specification appointment. This is important because the check from the insurance company will be issued to you and your mortgage company. The check(s) must be presented to your mortgage company along with other documents, in order to be released. Your claim specialist will assist you with this process to ensure your project is completed in a a timely manner.
This is where the work begins! Your Expert Exterior's claim specialist and production manager will order your materials and schedule dates for production. Some items, such as windows and siding can take several weeks to be delivered, due to the fact that they may need to be custom built to fit your needs. We will keep you in the loop as far as estimated time of arrival on materials and production throughout the entire purpose.
Expert Exteriors will schedule a time to have your local city inspector come out and ensure everything is installed properly and satisfies code requirements. If the permit does not pass due to various reasons, we will immediately make the corrections and schedule a re-inspection.
Your claim specialist will schedule a time to do a walk around with you. This meeting is to ensure you're satisfied with the work provided by Expert Exteriors.
Expert Exteriors' in house billing department will send a final invoice to your insurance provider with the pre-approved RCV, notifying them that all of the work has been completed. Your insurance company will then release the depreciation and supplemental checks to you. A copy of the invoice will also be sent to you via email or postal service. Once you receive the final check, you will need to contact your Expert Exteriors claim specialist and schedule your final meeting. During the final meeting we will collect the final payment, provide you with a letter of completion, lien waiver, and all warranty information.
