Like most business owners, you’re always looking for methods to save money.

One option that may be worth considering is a commercial roof restoration. But before making any decisions, it’s important to ask yourself some questions to determine if this is the right option for your business.

Here are the top 14 questions to ask yourself when deliberating a roof restoration.

1. Is Your Roof Leaking?

While your roof might leak, it does not necessarily need to be replaced. Roof repairs are less expensive than roof replacements and can save you money.

2. Do You Need to Replace Your Roof?

If your roof is old or has been damaged by a storm or fire, it needs to be replaced before more damage can be done to the interior of your business.

3. Are You Experiencing Other Problems With Your Roof?

If you answered yes to any previous questions, your roof likely has other problems.

These could be signs of structural damage, which can be expensive to fix if left unchecked. However, commercial roofing systems can be repaired or replaced relatively affordably.

So it is best to examine the entire roof before deciding on either repair or replacement.

4. Can You Afford a Roof Replacement?

Any roof replacement project is going to cost a significant amount of money.

But a roof replacement project can also be costly if you don’t do enough research beforehand. Fortunately, there are some things that you can do before you decide to go ahead with a roof replacement project that will help to bring costs down.

5. Will a Roof Replacement Cost Less Than Repairing It?

Repairing a roof is less expensive and far less intrusive than replacing it. However, if your roof leaks and the damage is significant, it will likely cost more to repair than replace.

Replacing the roof is often the more economical option, especially if the damage is significant and the roof is very old. An older roof may have a major leak and significant damage throughout the roof and may need replacement to prevent additional damage to the building itself.

6. Is Your Roof in Bad Shape?

It is important to replace your roof when it is in bad shape because if you do not replace it, you will spend more money in the future on repairs. Also, if your roof is in bad shape, it will damage the rest of your commercial building.

7. Are You Willing to Invest in Roof Restoration?

It’s an excellent idea to maintain your roof with regular maintenance and inspection.

Restoration of your roof is more cost-effective than a complete replacement and will ensure a longer life for your commercial building roof. Roof restoration is a great alternative that should be considered for your roof.

8. How Old Is Your Roof?

Depending on how old your roof is, you will need a replacement for various degrees.

If it’s over 20 years old, you should consider getting an estimate for a roof replacement or a roof restoration. If your roof is over ten years old, it can be repaired up to 50% of its age, so it can only go so far, and depending on how old your roof is, you may need a roof replacement rather than a roof restoration.

9. Do You Have a Warranty on Your Roof?

If you have a warranty on your roof, it may come with additional requirements if the warranty is still valid.

You should check the fine print of your warranty to know what you are required to do to maintain or extend it. You may be able to get a portion of the cost of a replacement roof back through the warranty if your warranty is still valid.

10. What Is the Cost of a Roof Replacement or Roof Restoration?

Prices can vary from small to large; it all depends on the damage to your current roof and the size of your building. The price can also vary depending on roofing materials, such as metal roofing.

11. What Type of Roof Do You Have?

Knowing the material of your roof beforehand can make the process go faster and smoother when determining the cost of the roof replacement or roof restoration.

12. Is There a Better Option Than a Roof Restoration?

Your roof is your business’s first line of defence against weather, wind, and rain. While it can be restored and repaired, it is best to do it as quickly as possible to prevent further damage and leaks in your commercial building.

If you notice any signs of damage or leaks, contact a professional immediately. The longer you wait, the more damage you can do to your roof.

13. Are You Dealing With an Emergency Roofing Situation?

If you need an emergency repair, contact a professional as soon as possible to prevent further damage to your commercial property.

Never delay, as water damage can expedite the growth of mould and can cause damage to your walls, and if it is causing structural damage to your building, it may result in having to replace your ceilings and walls. A damaged roof can result in thousands of pounds worth of damage if it is not taken care of quickly by a roofing professional.

14. What are the Benefits of a Roof Restoration?

It improves the value of your building: a roof is your commercial building’s biggest asset and first impression.

A damaged roof can decrease the value of your building and make it difficult to sell it down the road. A roof restoration can make it look like a new roof at a fraction of the cost of a new roof and will increase the value of your building for prospective buyers.

It increases the energy efficiency of your building. A damaged roof can decrease the energy efficiency of your building and cause your energy bills to skyrocket.
