The shelter a roof provides for us is often overlooked and not even thought about until there is a problem. A massive storm may hit and all of a sudden there are five buckets around your business collecting water. Now you are faced with a dilemma. Skyline Designs Roofing & Restoration would like to talk about the options of roof restoration and roof replacement for your commercial roof.
Roof Restoration VS Replacement
If there is just a portion of your roof that needs to be repaired, you might want to consider a roof restoration rather than a full replacement. Here’s why:
1. Cost- If you have to completely replace a roof, the cost is quite a bit more than a restoration.
2. Less Disruptive- The restoration process is far less disruptive to your business. You most likely don’t have to worry about closing your doors while the job is completed.
3. Added Longevity- On average, a commercial roof is expected to last about 20 years. By doing a restoration, you are looking at adding 10-15 years to the life of your roof.
How Long is a Commercial Roof Good For?
There are some cases where the roof is so damaged that the only option may be to replace it. This should be a last resort though. If there is any way around replacement, you should take it. When replacing your roof, you should consider a different type of roof altogether. If you put the same roof back on, you are more likely to run into the same issue down the road. Chicago Flat Roof can help evaluate the current roof and lay out all the options you may have for a new one.
What are the Signs of a Damaged or Failing Roof?
Usually you know if you have issues from your roof by doing a visual check. If you see any cracks in the flashing, standing water, bubbling or tears, this can all mean you have a pending problem on your hands. If these issues are not fixed promptly, the roof will continue to break down and most likely cause leaks. Leaks can lead to a whole other set of problems from mold to water stains and odor issues. If there is a problem with your roof, it will not get better with time. It will only get worse. Waiting to get the problem fixed will only effect the safety of your establishment and cost you more money in the long run.
How Can I Extend the Life of My Roof?
Scheduling routine maintenance for your roof is a sure way to extend the life of your commercial or business roof. At least once a year, it should be inspected by Skyline Designs Roofing & Restoration to catch any issues early on and save you money.
