Have you been looking for a roofing contractor in the Salt Lake City area for your apartment or condo complex? Maybe you have a townhouse that needs a new roof.

We here at Vertex Roofing want to help you figure out exactly what you are looking for in a roofing contractor, and show you why we are the best in the area.
Apartment, Condo And Townhouse Roofing In Salt Lake
When you are running a multi-unit housing complex, the most important thing to have in a roof is safety. Safety means having a roof that stays dry and that won’t collapse easily. We also know that apartments, condos and townhouses have roofs in all shapes and forms. Some have sloped roofs like houses. Others might have low-sloped or flat roofs with air-conditioning units or other exposed duct work on top. These properties can use a number of different materials such as:
- Galvanized Steel
The level of variety is vast, but no matter what you decide to go with, you want a roof that will appeal to potential and current tenants visually while still keeping them safe.
When To Replace Your Apartment, Condo or Townhouse Roof
Make sure to have your rental properties roof inspected at least once a year, twice if possible. Inspect for potential issues such as poor draining, holes, sagging decks and discoloration. Check both the outside and the inside; sometimes the damage is minor, like missing shingles or a small leak. These can be patched up pretty easily. However, if there are lots of signs of damage, like multiple leaks or the roof is very old, it is time to put in a replacement.
Unlike single-family homes, roofs for multi-family complexes generally have a shorter lifespan, mostly due to the shape and size of the roof. A multi-family roof has more points for potential damage because it is bigger. Also, they tend to be low-sloped, which relies on drain systems and waterproofing to deal with water as opposed to single family roofs that are usually high-sloped that rely on gravity.
The size of a multi-family complex roof means that the materials are usually different from a single-family home as well. Having much more space to cover means using different materials. Some complexes might even have unusual shapes and designs, meaning varying heights and configurations that normally wouldn’t be seen in a single-family home. Overall, apartment, townhouse and condo roofs are more complex.
Vertex Roofing Service Doesn’t Stop at Installation
Once you have the roof installed, the job of maintaining it doesn’t end there. Gutters need to be cleaned regularly, insulation needs to be checked; repairs sometimes have to be made. Having the roof inspected semi-annually can reduce overall costs and help keep the roof you just had installed in great shape for a much longer period of time.
We are proud of our team here at Vertex Roofing because they are not only trained and certified in installing brand new, top of the line roofs on multi-unit complexes, but they also go the extra mile and can handle all of your post installation needs as well.
