Depending on the age and overall condition of your commercial roof, there are several options you can take in order to improve the quality and lifespan of your roof.
Repair – When the roof has suffered minor damage but is in good shape overall, you rarely need to go so far as to re-cover or replace the roof. Some simple repairs should be enough to get your back in good shape and costs much less than doing a replacement.
Re-Cover – Essentially adding an extra layer, doing a re-cover will add a secondary membrane over your current roof material. This adds an additional layer of protection for your roof. This is a great option for old roofs that still have good insulation. It is quicker to install and much cheaper compared to doing a full roof replacement.
Replacement – If the roof is old and damaged, the only option may be to do a complete tear-off and add replace it with new roofing materials. This the best option when the roofing insulation also needs to be replaced and your looking to update the roof to a newer, energy efficient roofing material.
If you’re looking for a solution that allows you to extend the life of your roof, you might consider having a roof coating applied. This is a cheaper and faster method of adding extra protection to your roof then repairs or a re-cover. It won’t have the some level of protection as a re-cover, but it is a cost effective option when you are looking for a short term solution to improve your roof.
