Is your roof leaking or have you noticed mold on the surface? Is it time to get a new one? When it comes to roofing replacement, MK Roofing & Services is the company to call.
We all know by now that the roof speaks for your business and that it is a vital part of an establishment that needs more attention, so it lasts for years. Commercial roof repairs and replacement requires time and a significant investment. So it helps to have at least a considerable amount of knowledge about essential criteria when using such services because this roof serves as a foundation and umbrella for which other elements of the building such as ceiling and adjacent walls relied on the top. So, how do you know when it is time to replace or repair your roof? So what happens if you find a leak on your roof? For example, can replacement or repair wait? Let’s find out.
Ideally, it is best to provide a reactive solution before getting worse when such a thing happens. However, it is understandable that sometimes financial constraints get in the way of things. The good news is we can spare ourselves from surprises by knowing the dynamics of the commercial roofing system- factors that could give us a clue when it happens so we can prepare for it.
Internal Factor – this depends on the type of commercial roofing materials used. Asphalt Shingles have an average lifespan of 15-30 years. Concrete Roofs can last 30- 50 years, and Metal Roofs estimate to last 50- 70 years.
External Factor – outside influences that include exposure to the sun, contact with trees, and weather conditions. Just as UV rays cause skin cancer, the roof’s vulnerability to the sun can also cause damage over time. Roofs that are constantly brushed with surrounding trees are prone to damage caused by fallen limbs or branches. Weather disturbances such as winds, storms, hail, and blizzards are common scenarios that may lead to repair or replacement.
While every business hopes that their new roof will last for years to come, let’s face it, things happen -a storm, for example, which we have no control over or poor decisions were made in the past, including wrong systems, particular roof or under maintenance.
When a roof crisis occurs, the commercial building owner must often think about roof replacement’s advantages and disadvantages versus roof repair. Aside from financial capability, one must also consider the extent of the damage, the impact of the crack toward the overall structure of the building, temporary fix or long term solution and any construction plans or future expansions that you may have in the future.
