The Impact of Commercial Roofing Companies

Replacing a damaged roof

National Roofing Week runs from June 5 to June 11. This recognition and appreciation week allows commercial roofing companies to increase awareness about the importance of their industry, as well as the positive impacts that they have in their own communities.

At Summit Commercial Roofing, we want to highlight the many ways that commercial roofing companies like us are making a difference. Keep reading to learn more about how roofing impacts security, health, economic prosperity, and environmental sustainability.

Economic Impact

COVID-19 drastically impacted the economy, causing millions to shift vocations after decades.

It also left many people searching for jobs.

An established commercial roofing contractor provides secure employment opportunities by giving people the chance to learn, grow, and establish a long-lasting career.

Although it may seem obvious, a professional commercial roofing company protects their communities. Businesses rely on roofing companies to keep them covered and shielded from inclement weather. 

You may have always been covered by a roof, so it’s easy to take something like this for granted. But you must remember—without a roof, you and your employees would be exposed to heavy winds, rainfall, snow, hail, UV rays, and even pest intrusions.

Summit Commercial Roofing helps safeguard the health of businesses and their employees. 

As previously mentioned, a roof provides protection against the elements, including UV rays and water. Excessive exposure to UV rays can eventually lead to skin cancer. And, too much water or moisture can lead to the growth of mold and mildew, which can then cause major respiratory health issues. 

Further, proper roofing provides protection against animals, insects, and other natural forces that can contribute to illness.

Widespread economic uncertainty over the past couple of years is causing some business owners to look for new ways of cutting costs. However, it’s never wise to cut back your expenses by sacrificing routine roofing inspections, maintenance, repairs, and replacements as necessary. In fact, doing this could cause you to spend more money down the road.

Commercial roofing companies save businesses money in several ways. First, by keeping the structure sealed and tight, the roof prevents leaks that can lead to structural damage, mold and mildew growth, soaked insulation, and other problems that can be expensive and time-consuming to remediate.

As previously mentioned, a properly functioning roofing system also prevents health issues. And, fewer illnesses means less downtime and lower insurance premiums.
