Roof Replacement: Does Your Business Need It?
Jun 25, 2018
Roof replacement is a costly proposition, especially when it comes to your business. The key is knowing when to pull the trigger on a new roof, and when to wait. Here are three questions you’ll need to answer before you decide whether or not your company needs roof replacement.
Question #1: Will Repairs Do the Trick?
This can be a complicated question to answer, and you will want an informed opinion from a certified professional. Almost any rooftop damage can be repaired. What you need to know is whether repairs will provide long term results for your building, or if you’ll only receive short-term relief. Should your roof still have five or more years left on its expected life span, repairs will probably provide greater value overall.
Question #2: Can I Restore My Roof Instead?
Extensive cracking and leaking problems may make you feel like tearing your hair out, but you can often mend this degradation without jumping to replacement. Restorative roof coatings can repair deteriorated spots on your roof and simultaneously improve your system’s functionality. Many companies even witness a ten year addition to their roof’s lifetime; that’s another decade between you and roof replacement. If your rooftop damage isn’t substantial, ask your roofing consultant about a restoration.
Question #3: What Does My Cost Comparison Tell Me?
Are the remaining years on your roof system worth the cost of repairs? Consider also how much your business could save in repair costs and energy consumption via roof replacement. You can perform your own analysis, or you can rely on a commercial roofing specialists to help you.
