Working with a trusted commercial roofing contractor is the best way to ensure you get what you need from a specification and aesthetic standpoint.
When you call us, we provide a free inspection of your roof with dimensions and photos of the current conditions. If you have a current leak, and it can be fixed with sealant, we can attempt to fix it during the inspection at no charge. No matter your goal, we can provide a written roof maintenance plan to extend the life of your current roof and give you an estimate to reroof for the future.
Popular Commercial Roofing Options
(ethylene propylene diene terpolymer)
EPDM is a synthetic rubber roofing membrane, popular for its durability in commercial roofing projects.
Available in a variety of widths and and thicknesses, EPDM comes in white or black to absorb or reflect energy depending on your needs.
TPO roofing systems traditionally consist of protective sheets with 3 layers- a TPO polymer base, a polyester-reinforced scrim, and a TPO compounded top that work together to protect your business from leaks and damages.
Easy to install and maintain, TPO typically offers high reflectivity and heat welded seams to ensure excellent performance.
Fluid Based Coating
Fluid Applied Roofing Membranes are coatings that can be applied over various surfaces. Once cured, these protective coatings are virtually seamless, keeping the elements out.
Extremely customizable, fluid applied roofing systems are convenient for complex or unique roof shapes, and are quicker to apply than a traditional system.
How it Works at The 3rd Estimate
We take pride in offering a start-to-finish process with the same friendly face. Unlike other companies who bounce your project around to different employees who are only trained in one area, from your first consultation to the completion of your project, you’ll have the same team member as your point of contact. This will help you better communicate your needs and ideas more efficiently without interruption, while our team works together behind the scenes. In addition, this ensures that you have a knowledgeable individual who can assist you in any area of your project, from consultation to payment and completion.
Traditional Commercial Roofing Replacement
Replacing traditional commercial roofing is an easier, lower-waste job, as typically we can put the new roof right over the top of the old one. We use top-of-the-line Mulehide products that have been used for years and yield high-quality results. These products ensure that your roof is replaced with the best, most trusted products offered to guarantee a professional finish to your roofing job.
Commercial Roofing Repair
With larger, flat commercial buildings, small repairs are more commonly needed, but usually easier to accomplish. We understand that budgeting is an important aspect, and doing repairs rather than replacing the entire roof may be beneficial to your business.
With commercial roofs, matching the existing roof is typically easier as there are fewer color and style options. This keeps the repairs less noticeable, and helps to maintain the roof’s appearance.
We make commercial roofing, whether it be repairs or total replacement, a simple and easy-to-understand process with our skilled staff. If you’re not sure if you need an entire new roof, or just some repairs, our skilled team can let you know!
Residential Roofing on Your Commercial Property
Your business may be in a residential-style building rather than the ordinary flat-roof commercial building. While it is still a commercial-use building, it may have the needs of a residential home roof.
Unlike commercial building roofs, residential buildings may have shingles, varying pitches or an entirely different solution compared to traditional commercial projects. Understanding how they differ from commercial and what that means for your business is where we come in.
The Third Estimate specializes in residential homes, which gives you the advantage of working with a company that is familiar with a variety of roofing solutions. Our trained sales representatives can assist you with determining which roofing style fits your project, and how to best get it done. Contact us today.
Common Commercial Roofing Questions

2. Why do I need to have regular roof inspections?
Northeast Ohio experiences all sorts of weather that impacts the exterior of your business. Most notably, snow and ice can cause significant damage if you are not prepared for the changing elements. Maintenance checks are necessary because they help you spot minor problems before they become big ones, which helps keep your business operatable. Our team will let you know concerning areas, and help you come up with a maintenance or replacement plan.
What should a commercial roofing inspection entail?
A commercial roof inspection should evaluate the condition of many aspects of your roof, not just its appearance. Our Commercial Roof Inspection Checklist highlights the 11 important aspects of your roof that our team will thoroughly inspect.
3. Do I need to replace my entire roof?
Ensuring your entire roof is in the best condition is essential. However, there are circumstances where only part of the roof might need replacing.

4. How much will a roof replacement cost?
Depending on the roof replacement system you choose for your business, it can cost an estimated $5-$15 per square foot.
