Getting Beneath the Surface
A commercial roofing system is so much more than just the covering that you can see when you look from the outside. There is the weatherproofing layer, the underlying substrate, the roof deck, joints to the walls and the underlying structure, skylights, drainage, other penetration points, walkways and even access points. Any one of these parts has the possibility to cause problems, and, unless the roof is treated as a complete roofing system, problems will continue to happen again and again.
Weisman Roofing has years of experience in commercial roofing, including work on many of the most prestigious buildings in the state of Rhode Island. As a result of this cumulative knowledge, Weisman brings great attention, analysis and care to each commercial roofing project.
When building owners or managers require work done on their properties, Weisman uses its commercial roofing expertise to empower and educating them, so that they can make informed decisions on the roofing system protecting their facility.
Weisman starts with a detailed fact finding survey, including a detailed inspection. In many cases, the commercial roofing inspection itself can be difficult, but the high-access skills of their trained staff make this a safe and quick process. The existing roof is photographed and measured. Sometimes diagnostic roof test cuts are made. Often, Weisman carries out a moisture survey of the roof. The whole process ensures that the existing condition and structure of the roof are completely understood, before alternatives are presented.
The result is a highly detailed understanding of why the existing roofing system failed (or is failing), and also a thorough understanding of the conditions the new roofing system must meet.
Using the combination of its extensive commercial roofing knowledge and a detailed understanding of the building, Weisman then designs and accurately plans any work that needs to be undertaken. The plan takes into account any timescales, the demolition or repair of any existing roofing, removing any waste material (no small task for some buildings), and the installation of any sub-structure and top layer for the building. Weisman plans and implements all the step necessary to ensure proper installation and ongoing maintenance for the life of the roofing system.
By helping building owners and managers understand the specific nature of the problems with their existing roofing system, and by recommending and using the most suitable, high quality, modern commercial roofing products, Weisman has built a long-lasting credible reputation in commercial roofing.
