Roofing Solutions for Food Processing Facilities

Food processing requires high sanitation standards so a single roof leak may compromise your efforts. To keep your facility protected and sanitary you need a robust, reliable roof that will protect your sensitive inventory no matter what.

Unique Roofing Challenges for Food Processing Plants and Food Storage Facilities

Food production and storage is a contaminant-sensitive process. To avoid product loss and recalls, your facility has to be sterile and often maintain a constant temperature. There are a number of industry-specific factors that your building's roof may be facing. Let's delve into the specific characteristics that your facility's roof should have to keep up with your facility's demand and remain compliant with strict industry standards.

Chemical and Grease Resistance

Your manufacturing process may involve multiple chemicals and oils, which are often released through exhaust vents. To avoid deterioration, your commercial roof must be resistant to those contaminants.

Water and Vapor Resistance

Staying compliant with food safety regulations means minimizing any contamination risks. Roof leaks may bring outside pollutants into your facility and create a comfortable environment for bacteria, pests, fungi and mold. If your manufacturing or storage process requires cold or freezing temperatures, your roof must also be vapor-tight. Learn more by visiting our Cold Storage Roofing page.

Proper Installation

Maintaining specific temperatures and humidity levels in your buildings is often required. It is important to make sure your roof properly supports those efforts through the proper amount of insulation, the attachment method and finishing details. Schedule a comprehensive roof evaluation with us to determine if you need any repairs or maintenance to maximize your roof's performance.
