Directly proportionate to the housing crisis, commercial and retail facilities are opting out of the solar panel market.
Allseasons Roofing & Solar provides a “green alternative to commercial and Olympic size roofing materials using a single ply coating, or pool type liner used in the process of “most large flat-top, slope, or pitched commercial roofing,” Vice President Vlad Gorshtein said.
Allseasons Roofing provides solar paneling, however due to the economic downturn “solar is seen as a sexy alternative,” Groshtein said. “California is broke.”
Considering the long term investment of 10 – 15 year return on your investment for most business, “solar paneling makes no sense,” Gorshtein said. “You put up long term financing – there is no incentive for having a long term payback.”
Allseasons works with large commercial, apartment, condo and industrial contractors. The size of a roofing job can be anywhere from “$10,000 – five million with an average cost of commercial for $200,000 for a single ply coating,” Gorshtein said.
Allseason also does tar roofs, however the use of single ply coatings and liner roofing materials is phasing out tar roofs. When waterproofing a roof, “we excavate everything out Improving light structural damage.” Gorshtein said.
“Single ply reflects a lot of heat,” Gorshtein said. Single ply roofing standards are met under “title 24 complaint cool roof”. With direct standards related to the roofing industry, quality roofing materials can reduce the heating and cooling costs depending on the age and construction of the building. “Coatings or any type single ply gives you the reduction,” Gorshtein said. “It does reflect sunlight.”
“With over 20 years of experience and 150 workers incorporated throughout San Jose and the Los Angeles area Allseasons Roofing is increasing “80-percent of the flat market using single ply membrane using PVC or TPO,” Gorshtein said. The standard wear of a single ply roof “can last anywhere from 10 – 15 years,” Groshtein said. “Service checks include maintenance and rework of the roof.”
Allseasons Roofing & Solar uses environmentally friendly materials and includes special training for its employees. Having safety training and “constant investment in people and training helps us find customers and helps build relationships that creates repeat business,” Groshtein said.
