One of the biggest questions that building owners and
managers have when they reach out to our commercial roofing experts
here at Heidler Roofing is whether their old or damaged roof needs to be
completely replaced. They often ask this with a little bit of fear because it’s
a common misconception that replacement is enormously expensive and disruptive
to business. However, it’s also a common misconception that the only option for
a commercial roof that’s experiencing problems
and leaks is a total tear-off and rebuild.
The truth is that less extensive repairs or even restoration
options may better suit the situation.
For our final installment in the recent Ultimate
Guide to Commercial Roofing post series here on the blog, we’re taking a
look at repair versus replacement. We’ll also touch on restoration, which has
become more popular with the advancement of commercial
roofing materials over time.
