How do you know when to contact an expert roofing contractor in Iowa? Though building owners and facility managers can handle almost anything, they can't do it all. A licensed ELEVATE roofing contractor is your best option when handling one of your property's most essential investments— the roof and its many layers.
Reach out to a commercial roofing company near you in Iowa when you spot leaks, ponding water on a flat roof, clogged gutters and drains, and visible damage. Even if there aren't any pronounced signs of roof damage or leaks, it's a smart move to consult a professional bi-yearly for a regular roof check and periodic maintenance. An experienced contractor can quickly identify potential problems and swiftly fix them to preserve your investment. Routine inspections and maintenance plans are especially important if you have an active Red Shield™ Warranty.
Contact a Contractor for Roofing System Inspections in Iowa
Although they are not a part of Red Shield Warranties, routine inspections are crucial for any successful roof maintenance plan. Your local ELEVATE Licensed roofer in Iowa can provide professional inspections and expert repairs to match. What happens at a commercial roof inspection? Well, a contractor will check roof traffic wear, drainage, and roofing membrane seams and identify any wind or contaminant damage. They'll point out cuts or punctures from dropped tools, extreme wear in high traffic spots, and crushed or moist insulation. They'll examine drainage systems, looking for evidence of ponding water and structural compromise from moisture. Suitable drainage is top priority in roof design and maintenance as water infiltration can impair the roof deck, roof insulation, and building contents. They'll also check the membrane, rooftop equipment, and edge metal for wind damage and ensure that exposure to acids, oils, fats, and other organic solvents has not caused untimely membrane cracking or swelling. In the end, the aim is to keep up a watertight roof, and your Iowa commercial roofing contractor will advise on repairs that support this goal.
The specific course of action (for either repair or replacement) depends greatly on the type of commercial roof material currently in place. ELEVATE Licensed roofers are qualified to install and maintain many systems, including EPDM, TPO, PVC, asphalt, and metal roof systems. Learn more about these systems and try the quick, three-question tool for roof system recommendations based on your climate, budget, and building type.

EPDM stands for ethylene propylene diene monomer, and our top-notch synthetic rubber blend is the base for our premium-grade EPDM roofing membrane. The membrane performs well in Iowa and especially well in northern climates. It is perfect for hospitals, schools, office buildings, and warehouses, and offers decades of proven durability. Beyond longevity, reasons to choose EPDM include built-in UV resistance, easy maintenance, and versatility. Reach out to an ELEVATE Sales Representative or Roofing Contractor in Iowa to learn more.
TPO Roofing Materials & Systems in Iowa
TPO, an abbreviation of thermoplastic polyolefin, is one of the fastest-expanding eco-friendly commercial roofing materials you can pick. This single-ply roofing membrane reflects heat and helps conserves energy, providing all-year resistance to ozone, ultraviolet, and chemicals. TPO is generally quick and straightforward to install, and ELEVATE manufactures self-adhered TPO membranes for smooth installation on complicated roof surfaces with zero disruptive smell (VOC-free) to those inside the building. Day-to-day business can keep going as usual during an ELEVATE TPO SA membrane installation. TPO is available in multiple colors, can be used on commercial and residential buildings, and is eligible for up to 30-year warranty. Call an official ELEVATE Roofer or Sales Representative to learn about the advantages of TPO for your Iowa property.
PVC Roofing Systems in Iowa
Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) single-ply roofing membranes are an incredibly durable, highly reflective solution for both low slope and flat slope roofs. For more than 35 years, PVC roofing systems have been put to the test and they continue showcasing their resistance to fire, chemicals, wind, and moisture. PVC membranes are also white and solar reflective, which helps to control a building's temperature and energy use and lessen the heat island effect in cities. PVC single-ply roofing membranes are great for urban buildings subject to harsh weather conditions, animal fats, grease, and chemicals, and can support limited foot traffic thanks to heat-welded, watertight seams. Should you choose an ELEVATE PVC membrane for your Iowa facility? Reach out to an ELEVATE Sales Representative or Commercial Roofer in Iowa today.
