Asphalt Roof Shingles, Roofing Tar, & Roofing Tape for Commercial Buildings

You’ve read a lot about how Clearview Construction can help with your commercial flat roof, but did you know that we also work on pitched roofs as well? Of course we do. Clearview Construction works on all types of commercial roofs.

Asphalt roof shingles on your commercial property are no different than the ones on your home. With a few exceptions. Commercial properties typically reside in open areas not surrounded by trees, which provide shade and relief, so typically commercial asphalt roofs take a beating. Daily, weekly, monthly, yearly. Asphalt shingles are susceptible to damage from debris, hail and even strong winds (as wind can cause corners to uplift, curl and eventually tear or become dislodged). These elemental forces can cause an area of your roof to leak causing water damage in areas. And these areas of damage are not always visible until it is too late.

Roofing tar is used with asphalt shingles in areas where there are HVAC, plumbing and venting coming through the roof. “Flashing” around the areas where equipment meets the asphalt shingles. Ensuring that these areas are keeping water and debris from entering your property.

Roofing tape is used in areas found more on flat roofs and in some cases asphalt shingled roofs have areas that are relatively flat and meet a graded part of the roof. In these ares, Flashing is not ideal and instead Roofing tape is used to ensure that water and debris do not enter your property.
