When Should a Commercial Roof be Replaced?
HOW LONG DOES A COMMERCIAL ROOF LAST?
Commercial roofs can last anywhere between a decade to 30 years. This depends on a number of factors. Maintaining your roof properly will extend its lifespan, while intense weather can shorten it. Regardless, if the roof on your business is 25 years or older, it’s time to consider a commercial roof replacement.
WHEN SHOULD A COMMERCIAL ROOF BE REPLACED?
Noticing bubbles between the roofing material and insulation? This is a telltale sign you need to replace your commercial roof. These blisters are formed by moisture accumulation over time, or sometimes by subsurface material delamination.
REPLACE THE WHOLE ROOF, OR A JUST A SECTION?
Depending on your budget, you might want to consider replacing a section of your roof instead of the whole system. Generally, if over a quarter of your roof is damaged, it’s more cost-effective to replace the roof entirely.
Unsure what’s the right choice for your roof? An inspector will be able to look your commercial property over and let you know what the best step forward is.
