When a commercial building runs into issues with damage or leaks it’s very important to recover or re-roof a system entirely. Learning the differences between roof coatings, re-covering and full reroofing jobs can make sure that you make the right decision with your roofing systems. Here are the differences so that you can decide which would work best for you.
Coating your commercial roof will improve life expectancy. With the help of ongoing coatings, you can reduce the chance for leaks, improve the aesthetics on your roof as well as lower the cooling costs for your roof. Ongoing coatings can be an excellent way that you can protect your roof from where overtime.
Recovering can take place as long as there hasn’t been too much damage to the other components of the roof. If your roof has been previously recovered, a complete re-roof may be required. Re-covering will make sure that you can enjoy a cheaper replacement cost and added protection for your roof through a new insulating layer of roofing materials.
A re-roofing job can be more costly for your commercial roof but it’s a better long-term solution than patching areas or recovering. If a large portion of your roof needs to be repaired, a complete re-roofing job is usually the best solution for protection and energy savings. If 25% of your roof is damaged, complete replacement or recovery is usually the best option.
