Commercial Roof Repair
New Orleans is full of beautiful older buildings, and it's important to keep them well-maintained so they last for years to come. One of the most important parts of maintaining your commercial building is making sure the roof is in good condition. Many business owners aren't aware of the signs their roof needs maintenance, so by the time they notice a problem, it's too late to fix it easily. Here are some signs you should get your roof checked out by a professional contractor.
Your energy bills are going up for no apparent reason
If you notice a sudden jump in your business' energy bills, it's a tell-tale sign that there's a problem with your roof. There are many different reasons this could be happening - there could be cracks in the sealant, or the roof could just have lost reflectivity over time, which makes it difficult to stay cool. Getting roof maintenance to fix this will save you quite a bit of money in the long run.
You notice moisture stains or leaks
Leaks may seem harmless, but they can be very structurally damaging over time. If you notice moisture getting into your space, you need to contact a commercial roofing contractor right away. Leaks can lead to mold and mildew building up inside your space, which can cause damage and be a health risk. Extra moisture can also attract insects and other pests, which you'll want to avoid.
Your roof is sagging
There are many reasons why your roof might start to sag - it usually happens because there's something wrong with a structural component. If you let the sagging persist, it could make your space unsafe and lead to further structural damage. Have a professional contractor assess the situation right away before things get worse because it will save you money on repairs in the long run.
In general, you should always make sure to get your roof looked at every few years to prevent major problems from developing. Having your roof inspected will give you peace of mind and keep your building in good condition. Garcia Roofing offers commercial roof repair and inspection services in New Orleans, so get in touch today.

Carrington Place of Baton Rouge: Senior Care, Assisted Living and Nursing Homes
A Proud Roofing Success Story!
Recently we had the honor of working for Carrington Place.
This is a seniors’ housing facility that offers a comfortable environment along with all the advantages, amenities, and conveniences required for living a full, active life. With 10 locations in the United States, Carrington Place has provided hundreds of seniors with much-needed care, assistance, and love.
We were contracted for the roof replacement of their Baton Rouge living facilities. It was a pleasure working with their trained staff, and the project, though challenging, was also immensely gratifying.
How We Started: Material Selection
Aesthetics were of the utmost importance. After all, the building had to appear comfortable and attractive to ensure the security and peace of mind of its senior residents. In addition, the fact that we were roofing a 65,000 square foot complex made cost a huge consideration. The installation requirements were a major factor in the selection process.
After much discussion with the Property Manager, we decided that Owens Corning Duration® TruDEF® architectural shingles would best meet the requirements. The choice for the color was easy. Slate gray helped the building stand out from its surroundings and nicely complimented the simple architectural style as well.
Planning the Roofing Project
We began the job by assessing the area and finding a suitable area to place our dumpsters. To ensure the safety of the nearby residents, the work area was roped off, and relevant safety measures were implemented. The crew conducted a safety meeting where requirements for the project were set.
How We Got It Done: The Installation Process!
Since Carrington Place of Baton Rouge is a huge facility, we had to carefully re-roof the entire building one section at a time.
For each section, we first removed the existing shingles and inspected the decking to ensure its condition. Any rotted decking was promptly replaced. The metal flashing was also inspected and repaired as needed.
The next step of installation was to waterproof each section of the roof. This meant completely removing the existing shingles, and installing a 15 lb roofing felt layer to ensure a completely water-proof roof. The plumbing vents were also replaced.
Next was the inspection and re-flashing of the skylights to prevent any future leaks. The roof was now primed and ready for the final shingle installation.
According to manufacturer’s instructions, six nails per shingle were used. Almost 3000 feet of metal drip edge was used. That’s half a mile of drip edge metal!
Carrington Place Now Looks Amazing!
We are proud of the work that has been done. The whole project, from beginning to end, took us four weeks to complete. That’s not bad for a 65,000 square foot, two story complex! Carrington Place of Baton Rouge is located at 8225 Summa Ave, Baton Rouge, LA 70809. Go take a look for yourself!
