Bird Damage to Commercial Roofing

Can birds cause damage to commercial roofing? Yes, they can and will.   The majority of bird species will nest in trees. However, due to overpopulation, shortage of foliage, or urban development, birds may nest in gutters, drains, and scuppers which can cause ponding and premature aging of some commercial roofing systems. Moreover, bird droppings contain high levels of uric acid which can damage some roofing material especially in conjunction with other factors such as  UV radiation.   Many modern roof systems are made of materials that can resist uric acid in moderation. However, proper annual roof maintenance to remove high [...]

Food Industry Roofing

Food industry roofing has its own unique challenges. Progressive Roofing undertook these challenges with the Tillamook Cheese Factory in Oregon. Progressive Roofing worked with Garland Industries to develop a specification that would provide a long term solution. Due to the extent of previous issues, much of the existing wood deck planking was replaced. Logistics was another issue. Food industry production is very demanding with many government-mandated safety protocols. In addition, a food production facility cannot just shut down while a roof is being replaced.

Rooftop Pool

Equinox Rooftop Pool Progressive Roofing loves to perform unique projects that some commercial contractors tend to avoid. The rooftop pool at the Equinox Gym at the Scottsdale Fashion Square Mall is no exception.  Unlike other roofing systems where the design is meant to eliminate or reduce ponding of water, a rooftop pool has to be able to handle not only ponding water permanently, but an extraordinary volume of water- a pool. The concept of rooftop pools is nothing new, dating back to some of the earliest sky gardens. However, as the centuries passed engineers were left to the [...]
