Commercial roofing issues require a different approach than residential roofing problems. First, experts will see if a repair will be enough to address the damage. If not, perhaps a restoration would be a better solution. The last resort is roof replacement, which is reserved for severe roof damage. Following this order when approaching commercial roof problems is important for a few reasons, including saving money and time.

Repairs are usually recommended for minor damage which has affected an isolated part of the roof. However, just because the damage is superficial doesn’t mean you can delay addressing it. Damage still needs to be addressed ASAP as it can worsen and eventually compromise your commercial roofing system. It’s also important to note that if there’s a lot of minor damage in a particular section of your roof, it doesn’t mean you have to tear the entire roof off and replace it. A good contractor will be able to determine the extent of the damage and repair the affected section effectively, without resorting to more invasive and costlier methods.
A roof restoration is basically a step-up from repairs. Rather than fixing a single section of the roof, a roof restoration updates the entire structure by identifying issues and addressing them. A restoration involves an inspection and a thorough cleaning, then repairing and restoring damaged sections. It ensures that the roof returns to its optimal condition. Roofers will also add protective layers to improve the roof’s resilience and service life. If your roof has sustained damage but repairs are not enough, then a roof restoration is the best course of action in terms of cost, value and time.
A commercial roof replacement involves a thorough inspection, tearing off all the old sections and underlayment, and replacing them with new ones. Roof replacement is the last resort you should take when it comes to commercial roofing issues, for several reasons. The biggest reasons are cost and the effort and time needed to finish the replacement. Furthermore, it’s also not an eco-friendly solution as everything torn off, if not recycled, will end up in a landfill. But if your roof has sustained major damage or is already nearing the end of its service life, the most cost-effective solution is roof replacement. With a roof replacement, you can address all existing issues in one go.
