Roofers: They're Number One

Benefits Of Rainwater Collection Roofing For Commercial Businesses

Rainwater collection is something that people may feel is reserved for residential homes or homestead properties. Many companies are now looking to rainwater collection as a way to not only go green but also a way to provide their various projects with water. If you have not considered this as an option for your business, here are some of the benefits. Remember, a commercial roofing contractor can assess your current roofing situation to help make the proper rainwater collection upgrades. 

Reduced Water Consumption

The leading benefit to having a rainwater collection system of any kind is to help reduce water consumption. Having one on a roof,  especially flat or slightly angeled roofing, can add to the benefit by allowing for more water to be collected easily. Though you cannot use rainwater in every water-based application, it can still help significantly. For example, rainwater can be used in flushing toilets throughout the building or in water applications that allow machinery to keep working. 


Hydropower is something that can be implemented during times when electricity may be out. This can happen during storms and other related situations that cause power outages. Instead of using generators for all aspects of a power backup, you may want to consider hydropower. Hydropower, as well as solar power or combined hydro and solar, can help operate things like your lights. It can also help keep security systems, identification checkpoints, and basic systems running for production and in your storage warehouses. 

Reduced Landscaping Damage 

Rain does not only bring the possibility of roof damage, it can also bring several issues for your commercial landscaping. Heavy rains can cause severe erosion which can lead to flooding. When rainwater is coming directly from the roof onto the ground, it is not only causing erosion there but also causing issues near the foundation of the building. When you have a rainwater system placed into the foundation and construction of your roofing, you can avoid or greatly reduce this erosion. 

These are just a few of the benefits of having your commercial roofing contractor upgrade your rainwater collection and roofing. If you think this may be an ideal upgrade, contact your contractor. They will assess your current roof and determine what upgrades should be made. They can also help with flat roof upgrades that may help in rainwater collection and the overall green rating of your business.

Roofers: They're Number One

Who is number one on your list? We have to say that roofers are number one on our list. Would you expect anything else from people who write a blog about roofers? Probably not, but allow us to explain a bit more. While we have appreciation for a lot of different professions, we have really come to appreciate the balance of skills that roofers must hold. They need to know how to work with their hands. At the same time, they also need a lot of technical knowledge, and they need to be able to make some pretty involved mathematical calculations, too. Thank you, roofers.
