Repairing Your Old Commercial Roof May Be Better Than Replacing It

For commercial properties, the cost of replacing a worn roof may be prohibitive. Not only is there a large outlay of funds which can be north of $300,000 depending on the size of the roof, but it also can be a capital expense that will have to be depreciated over time.

Fixing it makes sense financially

In such a case, it makes more financial sense to fix the current roof and then maintain it properly rather than do a costly replacement.

A building owner, for example, can spend $8,000 to $10,000 to do an excellent repair on their current roof to bring it back to battery.

Repair can be warrantied

Absolute Roof Solutions will even provide a two or three-year warranty on such a repair if the owner desires it.

This repair-rather-than-replace solution is more financially viable as it is less expensive and can be expensed in the current year.

Annual maintenance necessary

Going forward, it is necessary to keep the roof in good shape. To do so will require maintenance visits a few times a year to inspect the roof, fix new issues and clean drains and such. This might cost another $3,000 a year. Still a less expensive alternative than a full roof replacement.

If you are a commercial property owner, we can help you determine the best course of action for your roof and pocketbook.
