Commercial roofing is more complex than its residential counterparts and, therefore, requires a more controlled build, from fabrication to completion. Kirtley & Sons Roofing has a distinct advantage over other commercial roofing contractors in that we have the capability to fabricate our own metal roofing. The following are the benefits of working with us.
Failures Are Less Likely
Being able to fabricate sheet metal to our specifications gives us better control over the quality and consistency of every metal roof that we build. By eliminating the fabricators, vendors and other middlemen, we eliminate miscommunication, delays and mistakes during fabrication. It also lets us work around the limitations that other fabricators may have, giving us more flexibility to accommodate different types of crimp or sheet metal widths.
Faster Turnaround Times
Commercial roof installation takes much longer than a typical residential installation, so it’s very important to ensure that the installation is completed within the planned time frame. Installation delays can result in loss of revenue. Third-party fabricators increase the chances of delays since we would have to wait for them to fulfill our order, have it delivered and inspect its quality before we can bring the materials on site. In-house fabrication eliminates the wait times. It only takes minutes (instead of hours or even days) from when the sheets roll off our machines to the time it gets loaded onto our trucks.
More Efficient Use of Resources
In-house sheet metal fabrication lets us make use of resources. For instance, we can cut the lengths of sheet metal to the exact lengths that the project requires, making a metal roof that’s as seamless as possible. It also minimizes the amount of waste material, which means less cleanup work after installation is completed. In cases where the roofing project needs to be changed midway – due to structural issues that need to be addressed, for instance – we can easily adapt to it in the shortest possible time. Homeowners can, of course, also enjoy these benefits when they hire us for their reroofing project.
