5 Benefits You Need To Know About Commercial Re-Roofing
Why Re-Roofing Is The Best Idea For Your Arizona Business
When your roof is aging and starts to fail, you may think that your only option is to invest in a new roof installation. You may put off getting the new roof because you don’t want to spend the money and you don’t want to experience the disruption to your operations. But doing so will put your business at risk while your roof continues to disintegrate and experience problems.
Re-roofing offers a great alternative. With re-roofing, you don’t have to remove the old roof and install a new one. Instead, the new roof is installed right on top of the old roof, which is allowable under most building codes. Here are five benefits you can enjoy with commercial re-roofing:
Faster Roof Installation
Typically, a new Peoria roof installation involves removing all the old roofing materials first. All the old shingle or tile, underlayment, flashing, foam, and any other roofing material must be completely removed. If the decking is damaged, then it would be removed also. That process can take quite some time, which will draw out the length of your project.
Re-roofing saves time by eliminating that step completely. The new roof can be installed straight away, ensuring that the project is finished much faster.
Save Money On The Re-Roofing Costs
Cutting out removal of the old roofing materials will cut down on the labor involved significantly. In turn, that will cut down the cost of your roofing project significantly. Much of the cost of a new roof installation is labor. Choosing re-roofing is going to bring down those costs, which will lower the overall cost of your project by a lot.
With re-roofing, you are going to have at least two complete layers of roofing on your business. (Some local building codes allow for more.) Those extra layers of roofing materials provide additional insulation for the roof, which will protect it against the elements and will make your building more energy-efficient overall. The thicker each of the roofing layers are, the more insulation you will enjoy.
Additional Protection To Your Roof
Say a branch hits your roof – a common occurrence during Arizona’s monsoon season. Chances are good that the branch is going to damage your roofing. It may knock some roofing elements loose, or it may break or cut through some other elements. Since you have an extra layer of roofing material with re-roofing, you also have an extra layer of protection. Falling debris and other threats to your roof will have to make it through two layers to have an impact, reducing the risk of damage.
Save Waste From The Landfill
By leaving the old roofing material on your roof, you save a lot of waste from going into the landfill. That old roofing material stays right on your roof, where it continues to offer protection and insulation. You keep materials that can’t be recycled out of the landfill for another 10 or 20 years, depending on the lifespan of the new roofing materials. You may even be able to keep the waste out of the landfill for longer.
Choosing re-roofing has a lot of benefits over a new roof installation. If your business is in need of a new roof, talk to a reputable roofing company about whether re-roofing would be an appropriate option. In many cases, re-roofing can be performed instead of a new installation, and it can save you a lot of money while ensuring that your roof has an added layer of insulation and protection, as well.
