Oh no, you’ve recently noticed a problem with your commercial roof! So what are your options to fix your commercial roof?
Get your business back up and running! Read here what your roof repair options are and what the best one is for your commercial roof.
Before you commit to what steps you will take to recover your roof, here’s what you should consider:
Now that you’ve asked yourself those four questions. Let’s consider the pros and cons of your roof repair options.
If there is only minor damage and the repairs needed are relatively easy, just do a simple repair on the current issue. Doing a simple repair can extend the life of your roof and is less costly than other options.
Repairing just the damage and not doing a full roof overhaul is your best bet if the roof currently has quality insulation and the membrane of the roof is still in good shape. If the roof currently has an old membrane or poor insulation you should look at other options for your roof.
One of the most cost effective methods for giving your roof a touch-up! The coating provides an extra layer of protection from potential leaks and helps extend the life of your commercial roof. This coating can solve roof leaks on virtually any roofing material. Also, it’s seamless and easy to install!
Adding a layer of coating is also one of the least disruptive ways of treating your roof. This option is ideal for occupied buildings and won’t hinder your business.
Sometimes the damage is too much, and complete roof overhaul is the best bet for your building. One indicator that you need to replace your roof is if your roof had to be re-covered once before.
As mentioned earlier if a roof has a dated membrane or poor insulation, a full replacement is the best option that will help address all the roof issues. Also, if the damage consists of 25% of your roof or more, you might as well commit to a full roof replacement.
A total replacement is beneficial because it allows your roof to get fully updated and you’ll be less likely to have problems with your new roof in the coming years. So if you are thinking long-term, a full replacement is the choice for you!

Not only will it save you pain yourself, but they also protect the ones you care about. You won’t want to leave nails or debris laying all around a job site where children or pets will be running around after all! On top of all that they help protect you from lawsuits if you’re doing contract work and not a home repair for yourself. No nails left laying around means no injured people or pets and no popped tires, leaving you protected from having to pay for any damages caused by leftover debris of a job site. We highly recommend at least one of our magnetic sweepers be brought to any job site, if not multiple sweepers due to all of their helpful uses.
