Wondering If You Should Repair or Replace a Commercial Roof


Regular maintenance is necessary for commercial roofs. This will allow you to fix small problems and prevent costly repairs. You will likely need to look into a repair or replacement option if you notice any problems early on, such as a leak. Although a commercial roof can be replaced, it is not necessary. Often the decision between repair and replacement comes down to a professional contractor.

The Best Option for Recovering

Roof recovery can ensure that roofing systems last for many years. Recovering the root surface can fix minor roofing problems. A new roof cover can provide years of quality durability for your roofing systems if the components are in good condition. This can be done once with a commercial membrane, before your entire roofing system has to be replaced. Recovering over replacing is a great option. You won’t need to ship large quantities of construction materials to the landfill until your roof needs to be replaced.

Roof Replacement

You might need to replace your entire roof if you haven’t already repaired the roof’s coatings. It’s possible that your roof will also need to be replaced if it has suffered extensive damage. A roof with more than one quarter damage is considered a breaking point by most professional contractors and will require a total roof replacement. A full replacement is more cost-effective than doing repairs or recovering after the quarter damage.
