Do Not Overreact By Fully Replacing Your Commercial Roof When Issues Arise

As a business owner or a commercial property owner in Toronto, your operating budget undoubtedly addresses monthly expenses including but not limited to:

  • Utilities
  • Maintenance
  • Insurance
  • Payroll

Regrettably, bigger-ticket expenses, such as roof replacement or restoration services, are generally not part of the monthly expense plan and, as a result, they can certainly have a negative effect on cash flow.

When an issue is apparent or obvious with a commercial roof, initial reactions may be:

  • The roof needs to be replaced quickly
  • The cost will be significant (and a loan may be needed)
  • The business might need to shut down for a few days

However, unless that issue or damage is extensive or ongoing/repetitive, there is a high probability that a full roof replacement will not be needed, and the issue/damage may be resolved through the services of a Toronto roof restoration company.

Full commercial roof replacement can be a costly and time-consuming action. Engaging a Toronto roof restoration company to perform a thorough roof inspection will often identify an isolated/localized problem that can be resolved through less extensive services.

There are several advantages to roof renovation services compared to a complete roof replacement for your commercial property. These advantages include:

  • A lower cost than a full replacement (and a more manageable unanticipated expense)
  • Less business downtime or even no interruption of regular business operations
  • A proactive investment in avoiding potentially extensive repairs in the future
  • Preventative measures against possible future increases in insurance premiums

In essence, when your commercial roof is showing signs of current or pending damage, it would be beneficial to contact a Toronto roof restoration firm, such as Triumph Roofing, to avoid a knee-jerk reaction or decision to have the roof replaced immediately and to determine whether a less expensive option would be sufficient.

Regular Maintenance Eases The Need For Commercial Roof Renovation Services

Regardless of the type of roof (flat or sloped) or the type of roofing materials used, it is inevitable that repairs (renovation or restoration services) will be required at some point, particularly due to the extreme seasonal weather conditions in Toronto.

The implementation of a regular maintenance program, including thorough inspections of your commercial roof at least once and preferably twice annually (spring and fall), will play a significant role in extending the life of the roof/roofing materials and in minimizing costs for renovation or restoration services over time.

When conducting a thorough commercial roof inspection, the Triumph Roofing experts will consider all areas/aspects where problems can occur, such as:

  • Roofing materials
  • Membranes
  • Flashing
  • Vents
  • Insulation
  • Gutters/downspouts
  • Sub-structure
  • Age and weathering
  • etc.

and, should any issues or concerns be identified, they will recommend immediate actions or appropriate preventative measures. The dollars invested in an annual maintenance package can pay significant dividends in terms of repair cost savings in the long run.

If you are uncertain whether your commercial roof is in need of repairs or replacement, call the commercial roofing experts at Triumph Roofing today at 416-534-8877 and arrange an inspection that will help resolve your dilemma and potentially save hundreds of dollars in unnecessary roof replacement costs.
