The Future of Re-Roofing: How Permanent Platforms Are Changing the Game

November 1, 2023by @admin-platformpro0

Greetings, everyone. I’m Cully Cangelosi, the president of Platform Pro, and today I’d like to discuss an issue that might sound too practical to be exciting but has a significant impact on homeowners, property managers, and construction companies alike: re-roofing.

The Old Way of Doing Things

Traditionally, re-roofing a building has been a logistical nightmare in many respects. The roof isn’t just a protective layer; it’s a complex system with numerous elements like AC units, solar panels, and various other installations. And until recently, one of the biggest headaches was dealing with AC roof platforms. Conventional wisdom dictated that these platforms needed to be removed and then re-installed, a labor-intensive and potentially costly procedure. But what if there’s a better way?

The Power of Innovation

When we founded Platform Pro, we looked at the most common pain points in the roofing industry and thought, “There must be a way to make this easier.” The result is our patented AC roof platform design, a game-changer for anyone involved in re-roofing projects. Why? Because it’s the first design that doesn’t need to be entirely removed when re-roofing your home or building. You simply replace the four split boots on each leg, and voila—the platform is as good as new. It’s that simple, and it’s designed to offer ease and convenience.

Versatility Is Key

But ease of replacement isn’t the only advantage. We’ve engineered our platforms to be adjustable from a 0/12 to a 12/12 roof pitch. This means our platforms are versatile enough to accommodate a wide range of architectural structures, even those with uneven roof surfaces. With a one-size-fits-most approach, we’ve removed yet another headache from the re-roofing equation.

Time is Money

Any contractor will tell you that time is one of the most critical factors in any construction project. Our design can be assembled and installed in approximately one hour, depending on the pitch. This is not just a time-saver; it’s a cost-saver too. The quicker the installation, the more cost-effective your project becomes.

Environmentally Friendly

Sustainability is not just a buzzword; it’s a responsibility. We take it seriously at Platform Pro, which is why our platforms are 100% recyclable and environmentally friendly. Our materials are UV resistant, adding to the durability and reducing the need for frequent replacements.

Reduced Risk

One of the hidden costs of re-roofing with traditional platforms is the risk of damage to the roofing system, which can lead to leaks or rot. By minimizing the need for removal and re-installation, our platforms significantly reduce this risk. The less you tamper with the existing roof structure, the less likely you’ll face issues down the line.

Looking Ahead

The roofing industry is evolving, and solutions like our patented permanent platforms are indicative of a future where re-roofing is far less cumbersome than it has traditionally been. It’s not just about making tasks easier but also about making them more efficient, safer, and environmentally responsible.

As we move forward, our commitment to innovation remains steadfast. We’re not just content with solving today’s problems; we’re focused on anticipating tomorrow’s challenges. This is an exciting time to be involved in construction technology, and we’re thrilled to be part of the wave of innovation making life easier for everyone involved.

Thank you for taking the time to read this. Here’s to smarter, more efficient roofing solutions for all.

Best Regards, Cully Cangelosi, President, Platform Pro
