Commercial Roofing Estimate - Showalter Roofing

Accurate Commercial Roof Estimating Software

The roof is one of the most prominent parts of a building. It protects against external conditions, ensuring safety and comfort for those within. Still, knowing the cost of repairs or replacement is daunting. Use this guide to learn the variables of roof costs and how to use roofing calculators for an accurate estimate.

How to Estimate the Cost of Commercial Roof Services

Multiple factors go into the cost of commercial roof repair and replacement services, including

  • Type of Roof
  • Roof Accessibility
  • Underlying Issues
  • Fasteners and Code Requirements

Type of Roof

There are many types of commercial roof systems, and all have their own cost variations and considerations. For instance, single-ply membranes cost less than built-up roofs, asphalt shingle roofs, or metal roofs but may not last as long.

Roof Accessibility

Accessibility factors – height, material storage, property access, and occupancy – also affect the cost of repairs. Working with an experienced and well-organized contractor is crucial for coordinating any commercial project.

What’s Underneath

Insulation, decking, existing substrates, and other structural elements impact roofing costs as well.. . Core samples and other exploratory tests may also need to be done to determine what’s going on beneath the roof surface, and help identify persistent trouble spots where water ingress or damage regularly occurs. Doing so may require additional material and labor costs to reduce the risk of further issues.

Fasteners, Wind Loads, and Code Requirements

Different regional, local, and state code requirements dictate which type of fasteners and wind loads your building may be subject to. These code requirements may demand strong fasteners and other materials, which can cost more in long-term expense.
