Precision Roofing has been in business since 1987.
Generally Precision Roofing serves the entire southeastern Wisconsin area. Depending on the size of your project, we are willing to travel outside of that area.
Flat roofing is our specialty. We’ve installed roofs on these building types: industrial/manufacturing facilities, schools, churches, hotels, healthcare, warehouses, restaurants, self-storage facilities, retail, auto dealerships, municipal buildings, multi-unit housing, funeral homes, and small businesses. If you have a commercial or industrial building and don’t see it listed, please contact us.
When you are wondering if your roof needs to be repaired or replaced, or need to know a budget to allocate for a future roofing project, the Precision Roofing staff can examine/access your existing roof and provide a complimentary proposal. This proposal includes detailed measurements of your roof and details such as protrusions and rooftop equipment, materials required, and all the services to complete the installation.
The Precision team’s first priority is to set up per OSHA safety requirements. We designate an area to supply the installation crew with materials while using the least amount of your space and assuring you can conduct business as usual. For many roofing projects, we install the membrane system over the existing roof, which saves time and the falling debris from tearing off the old roof. The roof installation is completed in stages to assure that what we remove is covered on the same day. Sheet metal edge trim and final inspection of all the seams are the final procedures. A project manager is available during and after the project when you have questions. The length of time the project will require depends on the size, type, and specific details of your roof, but generally plan from one to two weeks.
Precision Roofing carries all required Worker’s Compensation coverage, general liability insurance, and state licenses.
Building permits are purchased by Precision Roofing.
Yes, ventilation is installed per building codes or as a custom installation depending upon the existing conditions and your specific needs.
Yes, rotten or damaged wood or steel decking is always replaced as needed to ensure a solid base for the new roof.
The length of time a roof installation requires depends on the size, type, and specific details of your roof. Generally plan on about one to two weeks. During winter, since the roofing materials are neither weather dependent nor temperature sensitive, Precision continues to install roofs. Naturally there are seasonal times of the year (spring and fall) that are busier. And, while we approach all projects in the order we receive the approval to begin, if your roof needs to be covered to protect it from the elements, we will do that until we can begin the installation of the new roof.
Precision Roofing requires a down payment for the materials before we place the order for the membrane roofing system. The balance of the amount due is expected on completion of the installed roof.
A general guide is to allow a high ballpark figure of $20,000 for every 5,000 square feet of roof surface. For additions like skylights include approximately $1,000 (depending on size) for each. Factor inflation into your projections. Work with your company’s accountant or finance department as there may be existing or upcoming tax implications that help determine optimal timing for a roofing project.
Regardless of how intentional you are about creating a roofing budget, unexpected challenges can occur. We recommend $2,000 per year per 5,000 square feet for these. Knowing the maintenance history is very helpful.
