At some point, you’re going to need a commercial roof replacement. Commercial roofs are built to be strong and withstand severe weather conditions, but unfortunately they don’t last forever. As a business owner, you’ll want to protect your property and keep your employees safe and dry. A strong roof is vital to a successful workplace, and just like any other maintenance it should be taken care of in a timely fashion. However, you may be unsure about whether or not you need a replacement.
Some signs you may require a commercial roof replacement include:
- High energy bills
- Aging roof (20-25 years)
- Multiple layers of roofing
- Damaged flashing or decking
- Dry rot, bubbling, holes or tears
- Clear signs of weather damage
No matter what signs you notice, however, it’s better to contact a group of specialists who can survey the roof carefully and help you come to the correct decision.

If you’re thinking about a commercial roof replacement, there are some things you can do to prepare in advance and throughout the process.
1. Develop a Plan
First thing’s first: if you’re starting to wonder if it’s time for a commercial roof replacement, contact us and let one of our experts survey your roof. We pride ourselves on honest service at all times, and we will tell you whether or not you are currently in need of a replacement. From there, it’s best to start thinking of a plan. Make a list of questions you want to ask our specialists. What kind of material are you looking for? Can your business run effectively during a roof replacement, or will you need to change locations temporarily?
2. Know Your Budget
Once as it’s decided that you need a commercial roof replacement, we will provide you with an honest and competitive estimate. From there, it’s up to you to decide your budget. We will never pressure you just to make a sale, and we encourage you to sit down and take some time to run the numbers. It’s always best to leave some extra wiggle room in case any added expenses come up.
3. Go Over Project Details Thoroughly
After you know what you can afford and you’ve decided to move forward, you can sit down with our team of experts to go over the finer details. Make sure you understand the time frame, as the length of commercial roof projects can vary. This could affect your business operations and staff members, so take plenty of notes on the information you receive. Additionally, make sure to come to the table with any other questions you may have. You will have plenty of opportunity to speak with us throughout the process as well, but it’s better to know what to expect before the project begins.
4. Communicate with Your Staff
This is one of the most important ways you can prepare for your commercial roof replacement. Though most experienced roofing companies will do their best not to interrupt your business operations, any kind of construction work will usually affect your employees in some way. Keep them updated throughout and make sure they are prepared for any changes to hours, their work location, parking, or the overall noise level.
5. Have a Maintenance Plan
When your commercial roof replacement is complete, our specialists will show you the final result and make sure you are completely satisfied. However, moving forward you should continue to protect your investment by maintaining your roof carefully. It’s always a good idea to conduct regular roof inspections, check the roof after particularly severe storms, and make sure your gutters are unclogged. Finally, make sure to ask us about our warranty to get more information about the future of your roof.
