As you try to decide whether you need a commercial roof replacement, you’ll likely speak with several different commercial roofers. They may provide different opinions and different recommendations for your new roof. That’s not at all unusual. Different roofers specials in different materials so they’ll recommend what they install.
Weighing the Replacement or Repair Options
When you’re spending money on roof repairs regularly, you may begin wondering if another repair is really worth the money. It really depends on the type and reason for the repair. If you’re replacing HVAC systems or other roofing equipment, you will likely have multiple repairs. However, you should consider talking to a commercial roofer about what you’re doing before you start and jointly determine if a new roof is better than multiple repairs after the new systems are installed.
On the other hand, when you simply keep having roof leaks because of an aging roof, then you’ll need to look at the whole roof, decide how much more you’re willing to invest in the roof. At some point it may become a better fiscal decision to replace the roof.
