Even though most commercial roofing systems are created to provide your building with long-term performance, many can still develop problems during their lifespan. With improper installation, less than stellar design, or poor maintenance all can have a negative impact on your roof. When looking to fix a damaged commercial roof, there are four choices:  replace, recover, repair, or recoat.


Some problems on a roof can be minor and easily repaired, so they don’t warrant the expense of a replacement.



Not all damaged roofs need replacing. If the roof is fundamentally sound and has good installation, the most effective solution is to re-cover. In many cases, if a roof has only one membrane you can put another on top. However, keep in mind that a roof can only be re-covered once.



Sometimes a roof isn’t a good candidate for a re-cover if the damage is too extensive. If a roof has been re-covered once before, you need to replace it.



Many commercial roofs can be coated to extend their life.
