At LaFerney Commercial Roofing, we understand each roofing situation is unique. With a goal of nearly “invisible installation,” LaFerney strives to minimize the impact a roofing project has on your day to day operations and prevent unnecessary shut downs. This saves time, money, and frustrations. Any roofing company can put on a roof, however, LaFerney Commercial Roofing will install your roof with knowledge, experience, and integrity. We care about customer satisfaction and the years of performance yet to come.
Flat roof damage from age, high winds, hail, thunderstorms, or other environmental factors can be repaired or the roof replaced to mitigate the risk of experiencing the same problems in the future. Ponding water often appears on flat roofs and can void most warranties. LaFerney Commercial Roofing offers a single-ply membrane system with no exclusion for ponding water. EPDM, TPO, and metal roofs can often be recovered without a costly tear-off. Our newly expanded service area now extends to Coastal Carolinas, Chattanooga, TN, Knoxville, TN, Huntsville, AL, Nashville, TN, North Wilkesboro, NC, Norfolk, VA, Roanoke, VA, Mississippi, Alabama, Orlando, FL, Winter Park, FL, Tampa, FL, Alamonte, FL, and North Carolina's Piedmont Triad.
LaFerney Commercial Roofing, following a successful year, was pleased to make a contribution to the Second Harvest Food Bank of Northeast Tennessee. This will provide just over 195,000 meals to those in need. Among those served by the Second Harvest Food Bank of Northeast Tennessee are 22,359 children and 11,072 senior citizens over the age of 60. 17% of the households receiving assistance contain a veteran or at least one individual who has served in the military. 60% of the Second Harvest Food Bank network has no paid staff - they are operated exclusively by volunteers.
Straight line winds sometimes accompany thunder storms. The strength of these winds can lead to damage on your commercial roof by lifting panels, blowing gutters, and loosen flashings. Debris can also damage your roof surface. Damage from severe thunderstorm winds (exceeding 50-60mph) account for half of all severe damage reports in the continental United States. This is more common than tornado damage and can leave a path of damage that extends for hundreds of miles.
LaFerney Commercial Roofing has been installing roofs on flat and low-slope facilities in the Southeast since 1976. Drawing on that experience and our research, we have compiled the Defender Series. Four distinct levels meet all your warranty needs. Each level is custom designed by our engineering department for the unique needs of your facility. Exceptional performance, durability, and strong warranties make up each Defender level. Expert installation and excellent customer service are always included.
