Sometimes you need a clean slate. As the name implies, a full tear-off involves the complete removal of your existing commercial roofing system, allowing us to evaluate your decking and determine the existence of any underlying conditions. It also ensures we bring your roof system up to energy code, meaning less strain on your HVAC systems. Attention to detail is how Simpson proudly does business. We don’t just find immediate solutions for problems. We perform every duty with a complete understanding of your building envelope and a thoughtful, tactical approach to maximizing its lifespan. Intelligent design and professional integrity are ingrained into the Simpson DNA.
Known more casually as a “roof over,” a roof recover system is our default prescription for an existing commercial roofing system whose substrate integrity is intact and shows no signs of moisture infiltration. A “roof over” provides up to a 20-year material and labor warranty, making it exponentially more cost-effective than a full commercial roof replacement. This is our cost effective solution that gets you back to work fast without throwing a wrench in your budget.
One of Simpson’s foundational practices is working directly with general contractors, architects, and building owners alike to ensure every commercial roofing service we perform is the cherry on top of your entire building envelope. From shopping centers to high rises, data centers to schools, we deliver on time, on budget, and on the mark for every project specification. Oh, and have we mentioned the unrivaled expertise of our staff? Thanks to them, any project of yours is guaranteed top shelf workmanship and incomparable customer service. We’re proud of our vast rolodex of long-standing contractor relationships and look forward to establishing new ones!
TPO roofing systems are the most common commercial roofing system available, making up roughly 40% of the commercial roofing market share. If you've ever passed by a commercial building with a bright white roof, then you’ve more than likely seen a TPO roof!
Masonry restoration is an umbrella term for any building service performed on the stone, brick, clay, or concrete exterior of a building. It’s a highly specialized skill that often requires a separate contractor but is one of Simpson Unlimited’s many unique turnkey building envelope services.
Commercial roof inspections shouldn't be a mystery. We're going to take you through the most common questions about commercial roof inspections we offer throughout Virginia, Maryland, and DC, and all of the details, costs, and preparation they require. One of a building owner’s worst nightmares is finding out that your building requires an emergency roof replacement and you don’t have the funding to support the project. Maybe the single-best action you can proactively take is a planned approach to your commercial roof maintenance by scheduling bi-annual roof inspections with a certified commercial roofing contractor, along with conducting your own routine basic maintenance. You don’t want to be “that guy” caught off guard with the burden of an unplanned major building expense.
Commercial roof replacements are huge projects with a wide array of factors that can influence the cost, project timeline, and how invasive or noninvasive the project will be. Some factors include the height of the building, access, whether the project requires a full replacement or an overlay, and the type of new roof to be installed. Just as important are the weather conditions and time of year it’s being replaced. We’ll take you through Simpson’s battle-tested process of the roof inspection, estimating, planning, scheduling, and budgeting, and all of the major variables and considerations to keep in mind as you determine how and when to replace your commercial roof.

The importance of commercial roofing maintenance can’t be overstated. Making a habit of conducting routine inspections, consulting a commercial roofing contractor, and ensuring the drainage points stay clear are the keys to prolonging your roofing system’s lifespan. Doing so keeps your manufacturer’s warranty in good standing, protects your investment, and, most importantly, ensures your tenants stay dry.
