Roof Replacement

Re-roofing a commercial building requires a lot of planning. In many cases, operations need to continue, so it’s up to the roofing contractor to keep noise, fumes, dust, and debris contained. And, of course, that roofing contractor should also show great concern for the safety of everyone on site.

What is the best option for your commercial roof replacement? The short answer is “the one that best suits your needs and your budget.” The longer answer is “let’s talk.” There are so many options available for re-roofing, and you don’t have to replace your roof with the same type of roofing you have now.

Green Roofs

Green-roof technology covers a wide range of commercial roofing systems, including cool roofs, UV-reflective roof coatings, vegetative roofs, daylighting, rainwater-harvest roofs, and solar roofs. Each one works to reduce energy consumption and costs, reduce carbon footprints, and contribute to a more sustainable planet.

There might be rebates if you opt to install a commercial green roof—either on a newly constructed building or as a roof replacement. We can help with that. We can also assist you in accumulating and recording LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) points to earn a Certified, Silver, Gold, or Platinum rating.

Even if you’re new to green roofs, our versatile roofing professionals are ready to discuss the advantages and drawbacks of each type to help you find a roof you can feel good about.

Single-Ply Roofs

This type of commercial roofing includes products like PVC, TPO, and EPDM—each with its own set of unique benefits. Navigating all the choices for single-ply roofing on low-slope roofs can feel like a daunting task, but when you have the experts at GSM Roofing on your side, you won’t have to wonder if you’re making the right decision.

While helping you select your particular single-ply roofing system, we will go over options like the color (black or white), seam technology (heat-welded or glued), attachment method (mechanical or adhered), and the type of material (EPDM, TPO, or PVC).

Built-up commercial roofs for Eastern PA, NJ, DE, & MD

Built-Up Roofs

Commercial roofing contractors have been producing built-up roofs for centuries, and GSM Roofing has been building them since we started in 1946. This commercial roofing system uses multiple plies of material to create a durable, long-lasting surface you can rely on.

There are several options available when choosing your specific built-up roofing system. We will guide you through choices like hot-mopped vs. cold-applied, gravel-surfaced vs. smooth-coated, and modified vs. traditional bitumen.

Commercial Shingle Roofs

You’re not alone if you haven’t thought about shingles for commercial applications. However, now you know where to turn when you have questions about applications, longevity, cost, etc. The shingle-roofing experts at GSM Roofing have the answers to all your questions—and answers to questions you didn’t know you had.

Choose architectural shingles in a variety of colors and styles. Discover cost-effective options and more considerable shingle-roof investments that will pay off in the long run. As with all commercial roofs, your roofing contractor’s attention to detail and expertise and your preventive maintenance plan will significantly affect how long your shingled roof lasts.

Roof Coating

If you’re interested in making your low-slope roof last longer, if you want to reduce energy consumption and costs, or if you’d like to improve the appearance of your roof, look to the roof coating options GSM Roofing offers.

White roof coatings reflect the sun’s rays, helping to keep buildings cool in the summer and reduce damage caused by UV light. The diminished need for cooling will reduce costs, but it will also ease the load on your HVAC system.

All roof coatings can extend your commercial roof’s life as long as they’re applied with the level of expertise and precision exercised by GSM Roofing.

Your One-Stop Shop for Commercial Roofing

Every commercial roof application has its advantages and disadvantages—but one thing’s for sure: there is a perfect roof for your structure. Whether it’s a low-slope roof, a steep-slope roof, a historical building, or other specialty application, trust the roofing contractor who’s been doing this for over 75 years.

I did get a chance to inspect the roof of this church last week. There was no damage to the roof, it is actually in quite good condition since it was installed in the late 80's or early 90's. The leaks they are experiencing are at the flashing transitions to the stone masonry and one at a brick masonry chimney.

But I did want to tell you that I was very impressed with Austin, the young fellow that ran the lift for me. I am not sure I have ever had such a smooth and accurately-placed ride. It wasn't the highest roof I ever had to look at, and maybe the equipment rental was newer, but still, it was refreshing to see the competence of that young fellow.
