Why Commercial Roofing Matters for Multi-Family Housing
Multi-family housing, such as apartment complexes and condominiums, are becoming increasingly popular forms of residential properties in today’s society. With more people residing in these structures, the need for proper maintenance
and repair services becomes crucial. This is particularly true when it comes to the roof, which is one of the most important components of any building.
- On average, commercial asphalt roofs have a lifespan of 15-30 years depending on the material used and maintenance.
- Regular inspections and maintenance are essential to identify any damage or wear-and-tear before it becomes a major issue.
- A well-maintained commercial roof can improve energy efficiency, leading to cost savings for both the property owner and tenants.

When is Roof Repair Necessary at a Multi-Family Property?
Roof repair should be undertaken as soon as any signs of
damage or wear-and-tear are noticed. Common reasons for
roof repair in multi-family housing include:
- Leaks: Water intrusion is the most common issue with commercial roofs and can lead to serious damage if not addressed promptly.
- Ponding water: Flat or low-sloped roofs are prone to ponding water, which can cause structural damage and compromise the integrity of the roof.
- Storm damage: High winds, heavy rain, hail, and other severe weather events can cause significant damage to commercial roofs. It’s important to have a professional inspection after any major storm.
- Aging: As mentioned, commercial roofs have a limited
lifespan and will eventually need to be replaced. Regular
inspections can help determine when repairs are no longer
enough and a replacement is necessary.
At the first sign of a leak, be sure to contact a local, trusted roofing company. Time is of the essence to limit the damage a leak can cause your roof and structure. We also recommend regular inspections to ensure leaks and small, repairable items get addressed before they snowball into costly repairs like mold, wood root and even structural issues. We offer free inspections for multi-family buildings.

When Does a Multi-Family Unit Require Roof Replacement?
While roof repair may be possible in some cases, there are instances where a full replacement is necessary to ensure the safety and longevity of a multifamily housing roof. Roof replacement may be necessary for multifamily housing facilities in the following situations:
- Building upgrades: When making other upgrades to the multi-family housing, it may be necessary to replace the roof as well in order to maintain structural integrity and ensure compatibility with new systems.
- Energy efficiency improvements: Many property owners are choosing to upgrade their roofs with energy-efficient materials, such as cool roofs or solar panels. In these cases, a full replacement may be necessary in order to achieve maximum energy savings and reduce utility costs.
- Warranty expiration: If the warranty on your roof has expired, it may be a good idea to replace it before any major issues arise. This can save you money in the long run and provide peace of mind knowing that your property is protected by a new, reliable roof.
