Will replacing your commercial property's roof increase property value?
There are many obvious benefits to replacing the roofing surface on your home or place of business. Commercial rooftop damage can have a FAR greater impact on several key factors than most people understand. Not only does the "putting off" of repairs pose obvious hazards to your business, it affects some unforeseen variables. Our job here at Triangle Roofing and Renovations is to help guide you toward the right
1. Efficiency - As the roofing surface on your commercial property ages, it loses much of it's ability to absorb and reflect the many different types of elemental damage posed by the environment your business exists in. Your rooftop is THE most important part of the overall efficiency coefficient of your building. Poorly performing roofing surfaces can have a 10, 20 and sometimes 30 percent negative impact on your building's ability to maintain its efficiency. Heating costs increase, cooling costs skyrocket, maintaining a consistent temperature for your employees and customers becomes nearly impossible. Something as simple as a few degrees in either direction can have a negative impact on business' performance.
2. Curb Appeal - Just as it is in residential applications, curb appeal plays a large part in the assessed value of your commercial property. Old, dilapidated, poorly-performing roofing will undoubtedly hinder your ability to show, rent, sell or even drive in new or returning business. A clean appearance is beneficial in all walks of life.
3. Internal Damage - Putting off repairs on your place of business can have many adverse affects that will in the long-term cause more damage and downtime for your revenue stream. Water ingress, hail/ice ingress, animal and insect ingress -- These are all detrimental to the safety of your staff, clients and property itself in more ways than one. Water ingress can wreak HAVOC on your sheetrock surfaces, rust metal surfaces, short and damage electrical systems, ruin inventory and more. Don't let a small roofing issue become the cause of a major production outage for your business!
All three of these factors will increase or decrease the perceived and assessed value of your commercial property and Triangle Roofing and Renovations is THE best roofing contractor in the Raleigh - Durham area for commercial and residential applications.
