4 Benefits of Replacing Your Commercial Roof
Did your commercial building take a beating from the severe storms that passed through North Texas during the spring and early summer? Unexpected hail and high winds can really do a number on commercial buildings, many of which have flat roofs. If yours has developed leaks or other visible signs of damage, you might be wondering if you should try to have it repaired or just get a total roof replacement. Springtree Restoration repairs and replaces storm-battered roofs throughout North Texas, and we’re here to help you choose the solution that best fits your needs.
Replacing Your Commercial Roof: The Benefits
1). You’ll Have a Fresh Start
Commercial roofs are built to last, but they don’t last forever. If your roof has been holding on for 25 – 30 years, it’s probably due for a replacement. Visible damage, multiple leaks, and high energy bills are all signs that your roof has deteriorated and is beginning to fail. The next hailstorm that comes through North Texas could destroy the roof. By having a total roof replacement, you start with fresh materials and new construction that will last you another 30 years.
2). It’s a Complete Damage Solution
If your commercial roof has been damaged and repaired in the past, further repairs might not be an option. For example, if your roof membrane has already been re-covered, it shouldn’t be re-covered again. If water has penetrated through the roof in multiple areas, or if more than a quarter of the roof has been damaged, replacement is the best choice. A roof replacement includes the roof and the underlying layers, so you won’t have to worry about past damage coming back to haunt you in the future.
3). New Upgrades Mean Energy Savings
Roofing materials have come a long way in the past 30 years. There are now energy-efficient choices for just about every part of a roof. There is also a better understanding of how roof colors affect heat absorption and reflection, and the trend of “cool roofing” is a popular example of this. If your roof hasn’t been updated in many years, you could be paying too much to heat and cool your building. Upgrading to a more energy-efficient roofing system could save you money going forward.
4). Improved Return on Investment
A good roof is one of the first things potential buyers look at when choosing a commercial building to purchase. A new roof can add a lot of value to your building, which translates into a higher sale price when you decide to sell. If your roof is newly updated with high-quality materials and workmanship, you can expect to recoup most of the cost of your new roof when you sell. This could be much more lucrative than selling a building with a patched and re-covered roof.
The Bottom Line
If your roof is basically in good condition and still has many years left in its lifespan, roof repair might be your best bet. If it’s 25 – 30 years old, has extensive damage, or has already been repaired, your building could benefit from having a new roof installed.
