Commercial Roof Replacement
Frequently Asked Questions
A commercial roof should be replaced after 25 to 50 years. Most commercial roofing systems have a life expectancy of 25 to 30 years. However, metal roofs can last longer.
A leaking roof is one sign that your commercial roof needs to be replaced. However, there are other signs that a trained eye will notice. For example, blisters or cracks sometimes start to appear on a commercial roof when it needs replacement. Damaged flashing and failing seals also mean that the end of your roof’s life is near.
Commercial roof replacement can take several days or as long as a month. The length of time depends on the roof size, the type of roof system applied, and how much damage needs to be repaired before the new roofing system can be installed. The roofing industry is also very weather dependent.
The lifespan of a commercial roofing system can vary from 20 to 50 years – depending on the type of roofing system used and the weather conditions in the area. Commercial roofing systems that are regularly inspected by trained professionals and are properly maintained last longer.
A trusted commercial roofing authority will offer you a detailed report with all of your roofing options. In most cases, replacement is recommended if the repair cost is 50% or higher than the replacement cost.
An experienced commercial roofing company will ask how your building is being used, look at weather patterns in your area, and consider the existing roof structure before making recommendations on the type of materials used for a commercial roof replacement. In some cases, a liquid applied roofing system might be recommended to extend the life of your current roof.
In roof replacement, the existing roof system is removed and disposed of before the new roofing system is installed. Reroofing describes the act of adding a new roof system on top of the existing one. While reroofing is typically the cheaper option, it is not always recommended.
A commercial roof system is chosen after a thorough inspection and comprehensive assessment by a commercial roof inspector. Therefore, in your report, you will typically be given an extensive range of roofing systems from which to select.
