New and Replacement Roofing

As with all your facility’s infrastructure, the roofs of your buildings will eventually degrade and need repair or replacement. Maybe your metal roof has begun to rust or perhaps your single ply or modified bitumen roof has begun to crumble resulting in leaks. Worse yet, perhaps a catastrophic even has poked a hole in your otherwise perfectly good roof. No matter what problems malign the the roofs that cover your operation, Preferred will tailor repair and replacement solutions that will keep the outdoors out for years to come.

Depending on your individual needs and budget, we can install cost effective, durable single ply roofing (PVC, TPO, or EPDM Rubber), or modified bitumen roofing (a great burn and melt resistant choice for buildings in the vicinity of smokestacks or other potential ignition and heat sources). Our roofing solutions can be customized to accommodate varying degrees of foot and equipment traffic and can be adapted to almost all industrial and commercial buildings. Further, we can re-roof any existing, code compliant roof.


Is your existing roof outdated and beginning to show the signs of wear and tear but otherwise in decent shape? If so, re-roofing could be a viable and cost-effective alternative to roof replacement. If a building is a good candidate for re-roofing, we can install the roofing material of your choice over the material currently in place. Since there is no need to remove old roofing, re-roofing can save you valuable time and money compared to roof replacement.

Metal Roof Recover

If your buildings have metal roofs that are beginning to rust or leak, have rough or uneven joints, or if you just want to improve the energy efficiency of your metal buildings, Preferred’s metal roof recover process might be just what you need.

The metal roof recover process involves first smoothing and conditioning the metal roof (addressing poor joints, improperly set rivets, bent panels etc.) and then installing a layer of insulation panels. Next, a layer of single ply roofing material is installed over the insulation and bolted directly to the metal infrastructure of the existing roof.

The resulting roof system is impervious to the elements for protection from leaks and corrosion, expansion resistant, and will improve the overall energy efficiency of the building.
