What’s The Process For Getting A Repair Done?

Here is the process in general. First, reach out and let Roof Worx know about your situation. The next step is to have one of our specialists/teams out to your property to inspect the building. Then there will be a period where findings are shared, proper permissions are granted, paperwork is signed, etc. Then the work will be scheduled and taken care of, and then you’re part of the extensive Roof Worx family.! From here, we’ll be your long-term partner, handling all your roofing needs.

The process can be more nuanced, of course, depending on certain variables, but we’re known for exceptional work done as quickly as possible, without compromising one ounce of quality.

How Often Should I Clean My Gutters?

We recommend a minimum of twice a year, but it really depends on the weather. Our goal is to keep the water running smoothly and efficiently off and away from your multifamily building(s).

How Long Will My New Multifamily Roofing System Last?

The lifespan of your new multifamily roofing system will depend on a variety of things, for example, how well it’s maintained and the overall weather conditions we experience over the first couple of decades. It also has a lot to do with your installer’s skill and attention to detail, which is why you want to work with an established roofer like Roof Worx. Generally speaking, these are the average lifespans of common roofing materials:

  • Spray Polyurethane Foam: 30 – 50 Years
  • Single-Ply Membrane TPO: 15 – 20 Years
  • Single-Ply Membrane EPDM: 20 – 25 Years
  • Metal: 30 – 45 Years
