THE THREE R’S OF ROOFING
R1 - ROOF REPAIR
Once a leak is detected on the interior of the building, substantial damage has already been done. It's only a matter of time before the damage causes sections of the ceiling to cave in, interrupting workflow, ruining equipment and possibly injuring employees. Any number of these unpleasant scenarios and more can result from this preventable catastrophe.
Best Roofing is committed to saving roofs versus replacing roofs. Roof repair is a more affordable and immediate solution to a leaky roof. If the roof is in good general condition, we focus our efforts on repairing flashing conditions. We repair roofs quickly and affordably without interrupting your business.
Where do most roofs leak?
Most Roof Leaks Occur at What Are Called "Flashing Conditions"
Flashing conditions are where the roof changes directions in certain sections such as air conditioning units, exhaust vents, skylights or walls. In fact, 90% of all roof leaks originate from flashing conditions
Roof Repair vs. Roof Replacement
- Immediate solution
- Much cheaper
- Doesn't disturb your business
Other roofers recommend replacing the entire roof at the site of these simple leaks. Roof replacement is extremely expensive and incredibly disrupting to your daily operations.
R2 - ROOF RESTORATION
Roof Restoration is the complete rejuvenation of the entire field of roof surface that can significantly extend the life of your roof.
Advantages of Restoration
Less Than Half the Cost of a New Roof
Roof replacement is incredibly expensive. We here at Best Roofing have experience in roof replacement and realize how expensive it can be. Most roofers encourage replacing the roof before entertaining the notion of restoring the existing roof. We specialize in roof restoration to save our clients money. It's that simple.
Extends Life of Existing Roof
Roof restoration can add up to 20 years to the life of your existing roof. When your roof is beyond simple repair, replacement isn't necessary without proper inspection. Our trained professionals are knowledgeable and proficient in restoring even the most borderline neglected roofs.
Replacing a roof, in addition to being expensive and many times unnecessary, is very disruptive to daily business. From the noise to the debris, replacing a roof can cause a serious and unavoidable interruption of your business for you and your customers. Roof restoration is faster and with considerably less mess than a conventional new roof.
- Roof Replacement isn't as necessary as most roofers recommend
Estimates have shown that nearly 43% of leaky roofs should have been restored rather than replaced. Of that segment, 50% of all flat roofs and 90% of metal roofs CAN be restored for half the cost of a new roof.
Saving Roofs vs. Replacing Roofs
If a roof is at a later point in its life cycle, restoration is the best option. After the flashing conditions are appropriately resolved, the field of the roof is resurfaced with a polymer enhanced compound. This resurfacing compound protects the roofing surface and preserves the roof's integrity.
Restoration requires a special expertise that few companies can claim proficiency with. Best Roofing has mastered this process over the past 31 years, and is considered by our clients as the leader in commercial roof restoration.
R3 - REPLACEMENT
Some roofs have reached the point that repair or restoration is no longer possible. When repairs will not solve the problem and the roof system has aged beyond being able to be restored, Roof Replacement may be the only option.
Advantages of Roof Replacement
- Long-Term Benefits
Roof Replacement is the best long-term option when roofs fail. If done correctly, most roof systems can last up to 20 years or more, depending on the installer and materials used.
- Peace of Mind
Replacing an unsalvageable roof can provide to be less costly in the future and therefore offer more peace of mind for any business. Costly repairs can prove to be more of a hassle and hindrance to a company dealing with constant leaks. Replacing the roof may be more of an initial investment but can save money in maintenance expenses in the future.
