Should you Get a Commercial Roof Replacement or Re-Roof?


Understanding Commercial Roof Replacement

If your roof is having significant problems, too worn out for regular repairs, or at the end of its lifespan, you may be left wondering about the course to take. Should you go for re-roofing or roof replacement to restore the appearance and efficiency of your commercial property? Let’s take a closer look at the differences between these two major options for installing a new roof.

 

Commercial Re-Roofing

A re-roof is when a new roofing system is installed without tearing off the existing system. It is a quicker and more cost-effective way to restore your roof’s appearance and provide a protective layer against the elements. Commercial re-roofing can be a good idea if your commercial roof is nearing the end of its lifespan but the roofing materials are in good shape and there’s no major water or storm damage.

Re-roofing generally involves repair, roofing restoration, and retrofitting. The existing roofing installation is refitted and sealed before laying a new membrane over the old one. Your roofing contractor will perform an inspection to determine if the underlying insulation, membrane, and supporting structure can support the additional weight. Re-roofing can only be done once, so your roof may be a candidate if it has only one layer of the membrane.

One benefit of having your commercial property reroofed is the reduced costs involved. Since you don’t need to have a new roof deck or structural support, the process will not require extensive labor, materials, and time. You will save the expense and hassle of removing and disposing of the old materials. Also, the project will be completed faster because you will not be replacing the entire roof.

Commercial Roof Replacement

roof replacement involves tearing off the existing roofing system down to the deck. From there, the insulation board is installed to meet state code and then the new roofing system would be installed. If the roof deck is severely damaged, it may be necessary to repair or replace it entirely to prevent further damage.

Unlike reroofing, which may cover up problems with the deck and other materials, a roof replacement will address all problems for a safer and sturdier roof. The installation will be stronger because there’s no old or damaged membrane layer between the roof deck and the new roofing materials. Also, the materials will last longer than with re-roofing.

While completely replacing a roof is more costly than re-roofing, you will save more money over the long haul because signs of damage were identified addressed to prevent expensive repairs down the road. Roofing materials have to withstand high winds, heat, debris, and moisture, which is it’s important to find a reliable roofing contractor when doing a commercial roof replacement.

Commercial Roof Replacement Process

Replace your roof if it's been damaged in a natural disaster or weather event. You should also consider replacing the shingles when they're worn down too much to keep water from pooling on top of them, which can lead damage deeper into materials below that are more expensive for you! Here is a guide on what to contemplate when replacing a roof:

Find a Need for a Roof Replacement

  1. Cost: The cost of a new roofing system may seem daunting at first, but if your house experiences several repairs throughout the year it could actually be less expensive in the long run.
  2. Activity: The cost of repairing the same equipment over again is much greater than just purchasing a new piece. Pausing operations for one time replacement can be better than enduring reoccurring repairs that will disrupt your business’s workflow and profitability in general
  3. Safety: If you have concerns about larger pieces of the structure falling apart or causing damage inside your building, it may be best to get a new roof.
  4. Productivity: When the time comes for your home's roofing system to be replaced, a professional will have an idea on how well it is functioning. If there are some issues that can't really get fixed with just repairs then you'll need a complete roof replacement!

Contact a Roofing Contractor

When it comes time for a new roof, be sure to contact a roofing company as soon as possible. They will conduct an inspection and determine whether or not you need any repairs on top of that before completing work! You can also ask about prices; project timelines (inclusive if there are delays); business functionality during these processes such-and so forth.

Plan For a Roof Replacement

To make sure everything runs smoothly and that everyone has the opportunity to work at their full potential during this process - we recommend preparing several weeks ahead of schedule by allowing employees reduced hours or working from home if they need assistance in order not disrupt customer service operations too much while planning out what materials, blueprints, and designs will be needed once tearing begins on site

New Commercial Roof Installation

There are numerous benefits to installing a new commercial roof. Not only will it greatly improve the look of any building, but it also provides your property with enhanced protection against the elements. Better waterproofing features can help decrease damage and extend the life of your structure significantly. You'll also be able to enjoy improved energy efficiency.

New materials offer incredible insulation which helps keep the interior temperature at ideal levels throughout the year, allowing you to save money on utility bills each month.
