Although most commercial roofing systems can withstand extreme weather conditions and other outside elements, they may still fail over time. Fortunately, there are many ways for property owners to fix their roofing issues.
Choosing Between Roof Repair or Replacement
During your routine inspection, your roofer may find issues on your commercial roofing system, such as cracks or leaks. As such, they may recommend either repairing or replacing your roof, depending on the extent of the damage. You may want to consider a roof repair if the roof membrane is in a good condition. This is because a roof with a high degree of insulation and thermal efficiency is easy to repair. A roof repair is the most affordable solution.
On the other hand, a roof replacement may be the best option if the roof shows visible damage. If your roofing system is suffering from large cracks or leakage, your roofer may advise you to replace your existing roof with a new one. A new roof is the best long-term option to prevent further damage to your property.
Restoring Solutions for Damaged Roof
If you think repairing your roof may not be enough, but you’re not yet ready to replace your roof, you may want to restore your roof in other ways. Thus, roof re-covering or roof coating may be a good alternative if your commercial roofing system is still in relatively good shape. Re-covering your roof allows your roofer to put another membrane on top of the first membrane that is damaged. However, take note that you can only re-cover your roof only once.
Roof coating, meanwhile, provides your roofing system extra protection against leaks and other damage. It also extends its lifespan and improves the aesthetic appeal of your property. For instance, you may want to consider a reflective coating for energy savings as it helps reflect heat and ultraviolet (UV) rays away from your roof. It also protects your shingles and makes your building cooler.
