Costs and Considerations when Selecting a Roofing and Waterproofing Company

It's common for business owners and architects to select a commercial roof system primarily on the initial installation cost however, the oversight on the long-term roofing investment can be devastating. If, for example, a less expensive system is selected, the physical qualities of the membrane may not be ideal for the systems requirements and maintenance cost down the road will quickly negate and exceed the original costs savings.

Since every building envelope and roof system are unique, Madsen Roofing & Waterproofing, Inc. believes in preparing customized solutions for project managers and clients that meet their specific building needs. We work closely with the respective architect to provide solutions that comply with all regulatory and business requirements and determine the structure's long-term needs. Well thought-out and thoroughly prepared specifications along with accurate drawings are critical for the success of any new construction roofing system investment.

Taking into account cost, quality, and turnaround time we strive to identify all new roof system construction investment considerations including: long-term threats, maintenance requirements, technical considerations, life-cycle costs, and regulatory compliance.  This includes any future variables and conditions that can contribute to the demise of the roof system including, extreme weather such as hail and ice, intensive foot traffic (e.g. frequent HVAC maintenance), and intense solar radiation exposure.  In addition, we work with you to plan for future budgeting and maintenance needs.

Madsen Roofing & Waterproofing, Inc. strives to provide solutions to clients based on the life-cycle costs including:

  1. The initial cost of installation
  2. Total energy consumption
  3. Roof system maintenance and repairs
  4. Removal and disposal of the roof upon the completion of the life span.

It takes an experienced commercial roofing and waterproofing company like Madsen Roofing & Waterproofing, Inc. to accurately determine the effective life span and long term needs of a particular roofing system and building envelope.
