December 13, 2021 by Heritage Roofing
Roof damage can occur due to an extreme weather event, lack of maintenance, accident, or normal wear. Regardless of the cause of your roofing concern, schedule a professional inspection immediately if you believe this part of your building has problems. Keep in mind that fast action is key to avoiding extensive damage and prolonging the life of your roof.
Here are strategies pro use to address different levels of commercial roof damage.
Professionals can easily repair a roof with excellent insulation and thermal efficiency. Repairs are an option for minor issues like cracks at some areas of the membrane. If your roofer suggests this option, don’t delay it. Keep in mind that even the smallest of problems can compromise the lifespan of your roof when ignored.
If your roof has good insulation and an efficient ventilation system, your contractor may suggest re-covering it. They can easily install a new membrane over the old one. The process of recovering is also faster than a complete roof tear-off. However, you can only have a roof re-covered once.
Persistent leaks, cracks and broken shingles are common signs you need a roof replacement. You can’t permanently deal with these issues with repairs or a re-cover. If your roof is approaching the end of its life, a roof replacement can be more cost-effective than the earlier options. With a new roof, your building will have better protection against the elements, and you may also enjoy more savings on energy costs.
Coatings can help prolong the service life of commercial roofing systems. It will give your roof added defense against leaks while also enhancing its look. Another benefit of investing in roof coating is energy savings. It reflects solar heat and UV rays, helping your building stay comfortably cool, especially during summer.
