For your commercial re-roofing needs,turn to the pros at DK Haney Roofing
Commercial roofs are designed and built to last, but even the best commercial roofs don’t last forever. After years of taking a beating from severe weather, including wind, storms and extreme heat, it may be time to repair or replace your roof.
But there’s another option that can be more cost effective: Re-roofing.
What is Re-roofing?
As opposed to a full roof replacement or patchwork repair, re-roofing involves leaving the existing roof in place and adding an additional layer of materials over the existing roof. Re-roofing may even involve just a portion of your existing roof and not the entire roof. However, if an existing roof has been severely damaged and is wet or saturated, including moisture in the insulation, the affected areas most likely will be needed to be removed with a full replacement. If those affected areas are not removed, they’ll likely cause problems in the future, even with the addition of a second layer.
The best way to determine if you should go with a full roof replacement or re-roofing is to have an experienced commercial roofing contractor like DK Haney come in and do a thorough inspection and then consult with you on your options.
It should be noted that according to most building codes you can legally have a maximum of two roofing systems in place on a commercial roof. So, if you already have two systems, no matter how good the condition, you’ll need to completely remove one system before installing another. However, you don’t need to remove both roofing systems to install a new one.
Also, if the second layer of your roof is dry and in good condition, it can remain. A roofing contractor like DK Haney could then come in and re-roof over top to help minimize removal costs, while staying within building code requirements (with two roofing systems).
What are the benefits of Re-roofing?
There are four key benefits of re-roofing versus a complete roof replacement:
- Cost. Being that removing an entire roofing system is so labor intensive and costly, re-roofing is a more cost effective option, especially if you only need to remove a portion of the existing roofing system before installing a new one.
- Time. As mentioned in the previous point, removing an entire roof is much more labor intensive – and time is money. Re-roofing often takes a fraction of the time, meaning your business operations can resume as normal sooner than later.
- Support. By adding a second layer of roofing, whatever material you use, the interior of your property will be better protected with an additional layer of strength and support.
- Environment. Re-roofing typically means less roofing material to be removed, which in turn means less material to be hauled off to landfills. It’s better for the environment and your pocketbook.
