The roof of a commercial building is vital to its structure. They can be complex and feature different materials, insulations, application methods and warranty.
However, commercial roofs can sustain damage, wear and tear due to aging, or weaken as a result of various factors. When this happens, your roof becomes more vulnerable to escalating damage.
For example, weakened seams might lead to pooled water leaking into the roof itself. Severe weather and high winds might take a harder toll on a roof that is already aging. And of course, every roof system type has its own projected lifespan.
While it is often possible to repair damage without replacement, there comes the point in every roof’s lifespan when a full replacement makes more sense than endless repairs. Perhaps there’s so much damage that repairs aren’t an economical choice.
When your roof is nearing the end of its life cycle, there are likely to be more and more repairs in the future. In both cases, it usually makes the most sense to pursue a commercial roof replacement, rather than try to push an aging or damaged roof past its life expectancy.
