Deciding Whether To Restore Or Replace A Commercial Roof

 In Blog, Roof Installation, Roof maintenance, Roof Replacement

As a commercial property owner, manager, or director, you’re always on a tight schedule and budget. Weighing every option for maintaining your building or facility is a crucial part of your job. The roof is a considerable investment and essential to the function of a building. In the event of damage or old age, two options commonly weighed against each other: whether to undergo a roof restoration or replace a commercial roof entirely.

Restoring or Replacing A Commercial Roof

Knowing the difference between roof restoration vs. roof replacement can save you time and money in the long run. Proper roof maintenance will maximize a roof’s lifespan, prolonging the need for a commercial roof replacement.

If the structural condition of the roof remains in good condition, you may be able to get away with a roof restoration. A roof restoration will use the old roof as much as possible, cutting down on costs and materials. However, if the roof has deteriorated past a certain point, you’ll need a roof replacement.

A roof restoration is only worth the time and effort if it will extend the life of your roof significantly. All damaged materials have to be replaced. If a significant amount of materials have suffered damage, a roof restoration won’t be ideal.

Restoring Weather-Damaged Roof

In Colorado, the weather is a direct threat to our rooftops. We’ve got winds, hail, wildfires, and water damage to contend with all year round. Every season brings something new that can damage our roofs. These common Colorado weather patterns can damage a roof but leave it intact enough to warrant restoration rather than a complete replacement.

So long as the weather damage hasn’t threatened the integrity of the roofing structure or caused any water damage and intrusion, a restoration may be all that is necessary.
