Commercial Roofing Material Shortage: Planning Ahead Is Critical

Jan 30, 2022 | Blog

The pandemic has caused new factors that created uncertainty throughout the construction industry, including commercial roofing construction. These factors delayed roofing repair, installation, and pushed people out of the business. This blog will address how you can plan ahead to overcome commercial roofing issues for your business.

Commercial Roofing Materials Shortage: Important Things to Know

Post COVID era and the temporary Suez Canal blockage have caused damage to manufacturing facilities. It also caused slowdowns in projects, disrupted supply chain, and labor shortages for many businesses. All these factors have collectively increased prices and restricted product and services availability.

Shipping time for some construction components like polyisocyanurate and polystyrene was also increased, while their supply got reduced. Since no one knows exactly when things will improve, you need to plan ahead to overcome the material shortage and month-long shipping delays.

Overcome Material Shortage & Shipping Delays

At Advanced Construction & Development, we are working to overcome these issues. We are doing so by planning ahead and stocking up on critical inventories. As commercial building owners, you can also benefit from this approach regarding your roofing needs.

If you have estimated that your roof will require installation and maintenance in 6-12 months, you should now talk to your roofing expert to ensure the work gets done on time. Contracting projects now will also help save money as prices can likely go up in the future.

In the meantime, let a professional perform regular inspections of your roofing system, edge, and rooftop units for property upkeep. We also advise you to timely fix small repairs to prevent them from turning into bigger ones.

Plan Ahead with Advanced Commercial Roofing

Planning ahead to maintain your current roof is always the best approach. We are ready to conduct roof repairs and inspections at Advanced Commercial Roofing upon request.
When you hire our roofing experts, we will first conduct a thorough inspection of your roof and look for evidence of deck damage or water infiltration. Then, we conduct a detailed rooftop inspection to evaluate the condition of your roofing system.

Our technicians will then develop a report regarding your roofing system, insulation, terminations, adjacent walls, and edge details, along with other roof components. We will then recommend repairs and replacements if necessary.

In short, our team will work with you in all aspects of the project, including your requirements, timeline, and minimal disruption to business operations. Your roof may need little-to-no work or only minor repairs if you maintain it well throughout the year. But generally, the age and condition of your roof will determine the required roofing work. You can also extend your roof’s lifespan by applying a coating product.
