Commercial Roof Replacement

Utilizing Conklin's innovative, energy-saving roofing systems, we understand that your commercial roof is a long-term investment and not just another expense.

We provide thorough, upfront, no-obligation estimates, and reports that provide you with all of the information needed to understand both the processes and solutions to safely and effectively replace the roofs on your commercial buildings.

  • Solar reflective – Solar reflective roofs reflect the sun's UV rays into the atmosphere, which significantly reduces solar heat gain.
     
  • Seamless Roofing – Seamless roofing can be applied to existing roofs and is 100% waterproof and reflective, with up to 25-year non-prorated leak proof warranties, (Yes, you read that right!) seamless roofing extends the life of your existing roof in a big way.

Solar Roofing Systems

Did you know that if you install a new roof with a solar system, you can get tax credits for the entire project and not just the solar system? Our highly reflective energy-efficient roofing systems go hand in hand with the solar systems installed by Advanced Solar, LLC and can save a ton of your hard-earned money.

Commercial Roof Leak Repair

When a leak occurs in your building, the potential for damage to your assets and inventory become a threat. If left unchecked, the risk of significant property damage and the onset of safety hazards will become a reality.

If left unchecked, you run the risk of the following hazards.
  • Mold & mildew buildup
  • Potential for equipment & inventory damage
  • Fire hazards at electrical panels
  • Energy loss

Roofing Inspection Services

Prevention is vital when it comes to your commercial roof. At Green Improvements, we offer thorough roofing inspection services. Roof inspections are checkups that determine the integrity of a roof and how long it may last as well as when it will need to be replaced.

Steps taken to inspect a commercial roof include the following.
  • Carefully checking the roofs', and walls' interior
  • Inspecting the buildings envelope
  • Examining the building records
  • Inspecting the rooftop
  • Inspecting roof-based mechanical equipment & accessories

Exterior Building Envelope

While roofing is our specialty, we also provide other services such as man doors, overhead doors, sidewalls, and complete exterior building restoration services. 

What is the Building Envelope?

In short, a building's envelope is the exterior of the building that repels the elements. A commercial building's envelope consists of the roof, sidewalls, exterior windows, skylights, man doors, and overhead doors.

Inspecting the envelope of a building identifies any weak spots in the tightness of the building, which can lead to heat loss.

Why do the building envelopes matter?
  • Controlling Moisture - Moisture can and will impact your structure. From the roof to the floor and walls, unchecked leaks can damage the overall integrity of a building and lead to expensive repairs.
     
  • Thermal control – Is your building to hot or too cold? As we all know heat rises and if you don't have enough resistance in your building to prevent the heat from escaping through your roof, it's time to investigate your buildings envelope to eliminate heat loss and energy costs.

When we purchased Ziebart of Elkhart in 1993, we acquired a building that had been built in 1984, and with it had come a sporadically leaking roof.  Over the years we hired four different people try to repair it but didn’t have much success.  The roof looked pretty for a while, but the leaks returned far too soon.

While attending a trade show in South Bend, we stopped by the Green Improvements booth to see what they did.  The owner, Ben Schlabach, really impressed us with the display of their system and by the way he spoke about their products and processes; he really knew what he was talking about and had a lot of pictures and documents to back it up. We were impressed, so we invited him out to give us an estimate to seal our roof.

After meeting and measuring and asking a lot of questions, Ben came back with his proposal.  It was extremely detailed.  We knew exactly what we were getting and exactly what it would cost ~ no surprises at the end and no additional charges!  In comparison to the other work we’d had done, Ben’s price was admittedly higher, but the contrast in the quality was clear.  His 18-year warranty gave us confidence that this job would last; and it’s not pro-rated, so you know they stand behind their work.

You can tell a lot about a company by the way they approach every aspect of their business.  For example, each day when the crew would come in, they’d let us know specifically what they were going to be doing that day and how it could potentially impact us. (By the way, we never had to shut down our business while they worked; another great benefit!)  The horribly rainy summer of 2019 was certainly a challenge to anyone working outdoors and finding consecutively dry days was difficult. But rather than leaving us wondering, Ben always kept us informed as to what was happening, and they were able to find four days in a two-week period where the rain didn’t hamper them. The fact that they kept in contact and didn’t just disappear was reassuring.

Another clue about the quality of the crew and their dedication to taking care of the customer?  While managing the site, the crew even wrapped the cars in our neighbor’s parking lot, just to make sure the chemicals they used didn’t damage the vehicles’ finish through overspray.  Who even thinks that far beyond their immediate workspace?  The crew at Green Improvements does!

How a company approaches problems is a good indicator of their caliber as well.  After the roof was finished, we had yet another downpour and discovered a leak from with the metal at the end of the roof.  Ben came out immediately to inspect it and, even though it was a problem that arose from the original construction’s shoddy workmanship, made the repairs -- at no charge!  He fixed the original builders’ boo-boo without batting an eye.­­

If you are considering hiring Ben and his crew from Green Improvements to work on your roof, relax!  You’re dealing with a good, reputable company who’s going to finish the job and stand behind their work.  And they don’t disappear after the job’s done, which is really refreshing.

Hats off to Ben Schlabach and the Green Improvements team.  We wish there were more businesses operating just like them!

If you’re short on time and want a one word opinion of Green Improvements, it’s AWESOME!! For those wanting more details, read on…

First, a little background. Peabody Public Library is a beautiful building in Columbia City, Indiana, which is about 20 minutes west of Ft. Wayne. Located in 14 acres of beautiful natural wetlands, our building is built into a hillside and the roof is visible as our patrons approach, so our concerns included both function and aesthetics.

Green Improvements’ quote stood out because it was very thorough and met the parameters we had set forth, unlike other bids. They covered everything they would do, start to finish, even going so far as to outline how they would keep the area tidy and protect not just our property but that of our patrons as well.

When they met with the board, we were all very impressed with their professionalism. We confidently chose them for the project, and that good decision was reinforced throughout our experience. Ben and Matt are genuine people, working as hard as they possibly could to take advantage of the rare breaks in the crazy rain we experienced at that time. And, when approached with questions from our community, Ben and Matt were very respectful, diplomatic and kind in their responses, representing not only themselves but the Peabody Library very well. That speaks volumes about them.

As I mentioned earlier, there were some concerns about the roof color. We didn’t want dark because it would absorb the summer heat, and, with our brown brick building, we didn’t want white because it would look too stark in contrast. The solution? We went with tan, so it would be more reflective and efficient for cooling, while complementing our building’s aesthetics.

The icing on the cake is the price. We would have easily spent at least three times as much replacing the roof; restoring it with Green Improvements saved us over $200k initially, and, with the savings we’ll enjoy in the coming years on our heating bill, that's just the start of the financial advantage of working with Green Improvements. So, you can see why I chose the word “awesome” to describe our experience.

I strongly urge you to make the good decision our board did and hire Green Improvements for your roof restoration. You won’t regret it!
