While the total cost of a commercial roof install or replacement depends on the type of roof, its condition and especially the size of the project, most studies place the cost of replacing a commercial roof anywhere from $7.00 to $35.00 per square foot. Depends on size of your roof, ease and access to your roof, recover or tear off, how may roof layers. and how much insulation do you need.
With that said, there’s really no way to estimate the cost of your installation accurately without our Salesman actually taking a look at your roof. While online cost calculators do exist, take them with a grain of salt most of them are not up to date.
Thankfully, since they’re such major investments, most commercial roofing systems are built to last. But they can’t last forever, and when problems like leaks start popping up, they won’t stop until you put some time and money into rectifying them.
Business owners have a variety of options when it comes to working on their roofs. They could choose to repair isolated damage, re-cover the roof to prolong its lifespan, coat the roof to add some protection or opt for a total tear-off and replacement. Each decision has its merits.
Commercial roof repairs are good option if:
However, if your roof’s problems run deeper than just a few leaks here or there, repairs will only fix these issues in the short term.
Re-covering your roof basically entails adding another membrane on top of the membrane that already exists. It’s a good option if:
Keep in mind, however, that your roof can only effectively be re-covered once.
Roof coating generally comes in the form of a thin liquid membrane that is applied to your roof to add another layer of protection. It’s a good option if:

Typically, installation of a new commercial roof is advisable and cost-effective if:

With many older roofing materials, you wouldn’t want to install a new roof anytime that the temperature is below 40 degrees. The risk of damage to roofing materials during the installation process is much higher anytime the temperature is anywhere near freezing. Your best bet for a successful, headache-free install is generally anywhere from early spring to late fall, before it starts to get too cold.
Some modern roofing materials, however, can be installed at even lower temperatures without significant risk of damage. Depending on your roofing project, as long as your roof is clear, you may be able to install a new roof year-round.
Our suggestion? Plan ahead. If you know that you need significant roofing work, especially a new commercial roof, plan it out far in advance. That way, you’ll be able to lock down the roofing company that you trust the most.
