Chapter 5: Is It Time for a Commercial Roof Replacement or Repair?

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 replaced entirely. They often ask this with a bit of fear because commercial roof replacement is expensive and disruptive to business. However, it’s often a necessary investment, and one that can help you save money on your energy costs and protect your building for years to come.

For a commercial roof experiencing problems and leaks, a common misconception is that the only option is a total tear-off and rebuild. The truth is that less extensive commercial roof repairs or even restoration options may better suit the situation.

For over 60 years, Heidler Roofing has provided our customers with free roofing estimates to assess their unique situation. We will help you determine whether you need a commercial roofing coating or replace the existing roof with a different type of roofing.
