Replacing a Roof

A roof installed with first quality craftsmanship should last for many years. While superior construction may make it less vulnerable to storm damage, it cannot make it impervious to all the potential storm factors. Storms come and go, but a well constructed roof is more likely to weather it without damage. Blowing debris is one reason you should always inspect your commercial roof after a storm. Early intervention when damage does occur can be the difference of being able to repair, or the need to replace the roof.  Wear and tear from age will also eventually take its toll on your roofs integrity. When faced with roof replacement, ensure you choose a reputable, experienced, licensed, bonded and insured roofing contractor. Longhorn commercial roofing in Austin, TX can provide the quality and expertise you require for your roofing needs.

The Signs You May Need a New Roof 

         The average lifespan of a commercial roof varies, depending on the roofing material. Other factors that can affect the roof's longevity, include environmental conditions, and whether or not it has received routine maintenance. The age of the roof is a good indicator of when replacement may be an expected.

         Leaks can occur due to different reasons, such as poor craftsmanship, loose flashing and damage. Flashing is installed around the roofs perimeter and intrusions, such as ventilation pipes. Age is a major cause of the need for roof replacement, and the aged roof will eventually develop leaks with possible damage to the roof substructure.  When water ponds on the roof, leaks are more likely to occur. Ponding can cause leaks and failure of the roof substructure as the size grows, and weight of water increases. Contact Longhorn commercial roofing in Austin, TX for an evaluation of your roof's condition, and the solution you need.

         Bubbles and blisters on the roof surface  indicate moisture is in the roof cover. Leaks may occur, and the roofs lifespan will be reduced. Longhorn commercial roofing in Austin, TX can provide the repair required for this and other roof problems.

         When choosing between roof repair vs. replacement, there are a number of considerations. For example, a roof with a recent leak and sound structure is likely to qualify for repair or a roof coating. On the other hand, a roof with long term leaks, and structural damage is more likely to require replacement. Roof coating is an option for many roof problems, and can save you money vs. the cost of replacement. Not every roof is a candidate, but the majority are, even when they require some repair.

         Advanced deterioration due to environmental factors, such as extreme heat or cold, will reduce a roof's lifespan. Solutions are available for environmental extremes, and can reduce the impact. If your commercial roofing  is showing wear and tear, have your roof inspected for a possible replacement or roof coating.

Installing a commercial roof is one of the biggest investments you will make in your business. If, your commercial roof is damaged extensively it will need replacing but if it just needs some repairs or re-coating than Liquid EPDM Rubber is your best solution.
