What to know about Commercial Roof Tear Offs

There are two options for repairing an existing roof. One is to install new roofing over the current roofing material, the second is to tear off the existing roof and put down a fresh layer of new materials. In most cases either is possible, depending on the extent of the damage in the original roof. While placing new roofing material over the old is the cheaper option, it is not necessarily the better choice; which, is why a commercial roof tear off should be considered.

Re-roofing over existing material is problematic because there is no way to fully diagnose problems that may lie beneath. For this reason, roofing over potential damage may not address all of the issues. For example, if condensation and mold have collected beneath the roofing deck—or even in the internal attic area of a building—then it is unlikely to be corrected by applying new shingles over old materials.

Benefits of Tears Offs

With the prevalence of rain and conditions favored by mold and mildew, a commercial roof tear off is a more sound solution. In the process of removing old roofing, old and worn out waterproofing is removed and replaced. Any problems are detected and scraped away. Brand new waterproofing and sealing material is laid. This guarantees that the new roofing materials will keep out the rain and be laid on a healthy foundation.

One additional bonus to commercial roof tear offs is that it will not compromise the manufacturer’s warranty, which may happen when roofing over existing material.
