Repair, Restore, Replace…in that order!

You’ve probably heard us preach this in the past – but this phrase still holds true today! Not all commercial roofs need to be replaced. In fact, studies* show as many as 85% of roofs are replaced unnecessarily due to poor information.

For a persistent, leaky roof that seems to be stuck in the leak-repair-leak-repair cycle, the standard way of thinking leans toward a complete roof tear off and replacement. But that’s not always the smartest solution.  A professional roof restoration can be a better way to not only bring the roof back to watertight condition under warranty, but also extend its life as a sustainable effort instead of filling a landfill with truckloads of tear off material.

How do you know if your roof can be restored?

There’s state-of-the-art technology available in the commercial roofing industry that utilizes a visual analysis, infrared scan, and core sample for testing and analysis to detect a roof’s remaining useful life down to exact years and months.

The results also give a clear picture of a roof’s current condition. If a roof doesn’t have wet insulation, it’s most likely a candidate for a restoration. And that commercial roof restoration saves time, money and disruption over a standard replacement.

If a roof is determined to require a replacement, be sure to check out options because there are new systems available on the market that offer seamlessness, better waterproofing and more weather resistance.
