Industrial Roofing Solutions for Manufacturing and Warehouse Facilities

The manufacturing and warehouse sector has unique challenges when it comes to roofing. Depending on specific processes and methods involved in your operations, your entire building envelope may be exposed to pollutants, fire hazards, extreme temperature, vibration and increased rooftop traffic due to servicing the various rooftop components. We specialize in installing and servicing roofs that can handle the unique demands of manufacturing facilities and warehouses.

Factory & Warehouse Roofing

Installing the correct roof over your factory or warehouse is crucial to keeping your employees safe and preserving your equipment and inventory. Apart from typical exposure to rain, wind, UV and other factors, your manufacturing facility’s roof may also be exposed a number of industry-specific challenges.

Fire Hazards

While a fire may happen in any building, certain manufacturing processes involve open flames or extreme temperatures. Considering those risks when applying a new roof assembly is imperative.

Exposure to Chemicals and Pollutants

If your manufacturing process involves chemicals or pollutant exhaust, it is essential to consider roof membranes and surfaces that are resistant to those factors.

Equipment Fastened to the Roof

Some manufacturing facilities and warehouses have to use their roofs as a substrate for assembling or material handling equipment. If that is the case in your operations, you need to make sure you install and maintain a roof that can handle the additional weight and impact.

Certain manufacturing processes involve high noise and vibration from heavy equipment. Over time, this may impact the state of certain components, so it is essential to evaluate, repair and maintain your roof on a regular basis.

Frequent Roof Traffic

If your roof experiences traffic, for example, exhaust and HVAC maintenance, it is crucial to install safety measures such as guardrails and walk pads.

Multi-purpose Buildings with Drastic Temperature Changes

When your building combines manufacturing areas, storage locations and administrative offices all under the same roof, your roof's temperature may change drastically from one section to another. In areas with snow, this uneven heat distribution may cause ice dams, ponding water and deterioration of certain roof sections during winter. It is crucial to stay on top of those issues with a snow removal plan.
