Even when roofs to be replaced are of the same size, those on high-rise buildings are exponentially more difficul to replace – sometimes a project will end up costing up to three times more compared to what a lower-rise property would fetch. Still, new roofing is necessary under certain circumstances. If you’re a property owner or manager in need of reroofing, it’s best to understand what challenges you will be facing to help you manage your expectations.
For building roofing to be effective, it has to meet code requirements for wind-uplift resistance. This is important to note because the higher a roof is located, the more severe the wind-uplift pressure. Unfortunately, wind-uplift resistance is not always factored in during the design process, resulting in building roofing with less-than-ideal wind-pressure resistance.
Aside from promoting premature damage, improperly designed roofs run the risk of being copied, repeating the mistake or costing more because they have to be fixed to meet code requirements.
Sometimes, terminations in roofing systems can be obscured by other elements so they are not included in the reroofing design. This is where working with experienced roofers can help. Those who have worked on a lot of roofs for many years will have developed the experience and skill necessary for crafting workarounds to surprising issues.
