Frequently Asked Questions about Commercial Roofing

Q. Why are there such variances in the estimates I've received from different commercial roofing contractors?

The reason experts recommend that you get multiple bids for your job isn't about finding the cheapest quote; it's about finding good value. The prices you get reflect details like the quality of the materials and the labor. Be leery of bids that seem too low - you get what you pay for. When it comes to your roofing system, there's no room for inferior work or error.

Q. How do I choose between roofing materials?

Having plenty of options is a good thing, but it can feel daunting. How do you make the right choice for your building? Budget, longevity, and appearance are all key factors to consider. When you work with the experts at Ranger Roofing & Construction, we'll give you the pros and cons to consider for each type of roofing material.

Q. How long will my rooftop last?

The lifespan of your rooftop depends on several factors, including which material you choose in the first place. The quality of the material and labor used for the initial installation has a lot to do with it, as well. Plus, the amount of care you invest in maintaining your roof throughout the years will determine if you get the full lifespan or not. The shortest lifespan is asphalt shingles, which last approximately 20 years; the longest is tile roofing, which can last 70-100 years. Other roofing material options fall in between those two, and discussing your options with our team will help you determine which style to get.

Q. Is shingle roofing just for homes?

While shingles are still most commonly used for residential structures, they're still popular with commercial facilities, too, depending on the type of building and business. If you have a structure that customers will come to, shingles help create a warm and welcoming appearance. However, if your building has a roof that's flat or has a minimal slope, it's a good idea to consider another roofing system material.

Q. Some roofing materials are more expensive upfront - are they worth it?

The tradeoff for roofing materials that cost more is that you get performance and longevity in return. So, while shingles may be more cost-effective, you're more likely to need maintenance and repairs during a shorter 20-year lifespan. For metal or BUR, your roof should provide a longer lifespan with fewer maintenance requirements.
