7 Questions to Help Determine if a Restoration is Possible for your Commercial Roof

By now, you’ve certainly heard that commercial roof restorations can be viable options for bringing failing roofs back to watertight condition and back under warranty. And they do so with much less cost and disruption than a complete tear off and replacement.

Seems like a no brainer, right? Well unfortunately, not all roofs qualify. There are many factors that go into determining if a restoration is possible.

Questions to Consider

  • What percentage of insulation is wet, if any?
  • How many existing roof systems are present?
  • What percentage of the scrim is exposed?
  • What percentage of fasteners are backing out?
  • Over what percentage of the roof is there ponding water? Is it a slope issue?
  • Are there severely rusted metal panels that make the roof unsafe to walk on? (Metal roofs)
  • Is there presence of aluminized coating? (Metal roofs)

Before selecting a roofing company, it’s smart to ask them what percentage of their annual business is comprised of restorations vs. replacements. If a company primarily does replacements, they might be inclined to recommend a replacement as the only solution. Therefore, relying on a professional roofing company that also has considerable experience in roof restorations is best in giving you an objective opinion.
