Knowing when it's time for a commercial roof replacement

Any commercial roof will require regular maintenance in order to repair small issues and manage problems before they become major expenses. If you’ve noticed early problems with your roof such as a leak it’s likely that you will need to consider a repair or replacement option. For replacement of a commercial roof is not oh is necessary but the call on repair versus replacement often comes down to working with a professional contractor.

When Recovering Is An Option

A roof recovering can make sure that a roofing system can last over the years to come. A minor roofing issue can be fixed by recovering the surface of the roots. If the components are in good shape and in need of an extensive amount of repairs, installing a brand-new cover on the roof can be an option that could provide you with years of quality longevity on your roofing systems. You can often only do this once with a commercial membrane before the entire roofing system needs to be replaced again. The big benefit of using recovering over replacement is that it’s considerably cheaper for your budget and you won’t have to send a large amount of the construction materials to a local landfill until the roof requires replacement.

Roof Replacement

If you’ve already recovered the coatings on your roof it’s likely that you might need a complete roof replacement. If the damage to your roof is extensive as well it’s likely they you will need a full replacement too. Most professional contractors consider a roof that’s more than one quarter damaged to be a breaking point and a need for a complete roof replacement. After the quarter damage Mark a full replacement is much more cost-effective than performing the repairs and doing a recovering.
