Frequently asked questions

Does my commercial building need a roof maintenance inspection?

Your roof is one of your building’s most important components – so you can’t afford to let it fall into disrepair.

By engaging R&BS to carry out regular roof maintenance inspections, you can ensure that any necessary repairs are performed before irreversible damage is caused.

Our expert roof inspectors will take a closer look at all aspects of your roof, before recommending any work that needs to be undertaken.

What sort of roof waterproofing service does my business building need?

Because your commercial roof is constantly exposed to the elements, it’s highly likely that it will need waterproofing once in a while.

Depending on the specific needs of your project, the R&BS team can perform a number of roof maintenance and repair tasks.

Common procedures include installing waterproof membranes and using epoxy injections to ensure no moisture can enter the building. Depending on the severity of the wear and tear, you might also need protective sealers and coatings applied to your roof.

How can I tell when my tiled roof needs repair?

Signs that your commercial building’s tiled roof might need repairs include:

  • Damp areas inside your commercial building
  • Visible leaks which suggest a problem with the roof
  • Tiles becoming dislodged or falling off entirely, such as during bad weather

If you spot any of these warning signs, it’s important to contact R&BS for an assessment as soon as possible. Delaying carrying out necessary roof repairs can easily lead to further damage to your industrial or commercial facility.

Can you repair my commercial building’s metal roof?

R&BS can often repair your commercial or industrial facility’s metal roof, and help you avoid the need for a complete replacement. Yet at times this can be a complex task – which is why you should always leave it to the professionals.

For example, we may recommend that corrosion management & prevention strategies are put in place, depending on the severity of the roof damage. We may also suggest implementing penetration sealing and barrier coating systems, to make sure your building roof repair stands the test of time.

What is a green roof, and can my business use one?

With more and more Australian businesses becoming aware of their need to be eco-friendly, green roofs are becoming increasingly popular.

Also known as a “living roof”, with a green roof your commercial building is either completely or partially covered with vegetation, planted over a waterproofing membrane to protect your roof and building.

R&BS can advise you on the latest waterproofing membrane technology, to ensure that your building can benefit from a green roof while preventing damage and water ingress.

Because a green roof helps to reflect heat, you may even find that your air conditioning costs are reduced thanks to this type of roof maintenance.

How long should I expect my facility’s roof to last?

The lifespan of your building’s roof will depend on a variety of factors, such as the material it’s made from and the quality of the construction.

Yet it’s a fact that no roof will last forever, which is why the services of a professional roof repairer are so important. R&BS can assess the standard of your business’s roof and make recommendations as to how we can extend its lifespan.

How long do commercial roof repairs take?

At R&BS we never forget that every day your premises remain closed, your business is losing money. That’s why we focus on keeping downtime to a minimum when carrying out necessary roof repairs.

The length of time needed to complete your commercial or industrial roof repairs will vary depending on a range of factors, such as the size of your facility’s roof; where your building is located; and the extent of the damage that is being rectified.

However, you can rest assured that we will complete your job as quickly as possible –and with minimal disruption to your operations.

How can I identify a high quality roof repairer?

Of course, as a business owner or manager, it’s essential that you have confidence in your roof repairer. To do this, we suggest asking to see examples of their past work, as well as testimonials from previous customers.

At R&BS, we are so confident that our quality roof repairs will stand the test of time that we’re happy to offer a 10-year guarantee on all our work.

So before you choose another roof repairer – ask them if they are happy to do the same!

What is an inspection report for commercial roofs?

It’s so important to understand exactly what condition your commercial roof is in. Yet this is often anything but a straightforward task.

That’s why we recommend sourcing an inspection report from a roof repair expert. R&BS can provide an overview of any existing damage, and advise you of the work needed to rectify it.

We will also supply you with an expenditure forecast spanning the next five years, so you can budget for any necessary roof sealing, waterproofing, and other repair work.
