What’s A Roof Retrofit?
Put simply, a roof retrofit is the process of installing a new roof over an existing flat or low-slope one. They’re often picked to boost performance and longevity while avoiding the costs of tearing off and replacing the current roof.
The advantages of roof retrofits don’t stop there, however. Other benefits include:
- Minimal to Zero Downtime
- Budget Friendly
- Extends Roof Lifespan
- Greater Safety
- Improves Roof Durability
- Fast Construction Time
- Reduces Energy Costs
- Increases Building Curb Appeal
- Environmentally Friendly
Understanding Metal Retrofit Roofing System Installation
The primary benefit of roof retrofitting is saving money. Costs are reduced with no need to tear off and dispose of the existing roof.
Likely the most overlooked aspect of complete roof replacement is downtime. When the roof comes off and interior contents are exposed, general business operations are sometimes disrupted. With commercial roofing retrofits, everything can continue uninterrupted since the original roof remains in place.
Shorter construction time is another advantage of roof retrofitting compared to the remove-and-replace option. Crews can begin installing the new roof over the existing roof right away.
A byproduct of keeping the existing roof in place is enhanced safety. Workers remove the platform they’re standing on during the roof removal process. Once the roof is gone, crews must work around open framing that’s sometimes high off the ground. With a retrofit, they walk on the existing roof.
Your Metal Retrofit Roofing System Repair Source
Stellar Commercial Roofing would love to assist if you’re in the market for a metal roof retrofit. We’re a fully licensed roofing contractor offering two types of retrofits:
Single-ply roof retrofitting involves applying a single ply of roofing material – the most common is Thermoplastic Polyolefin, or TPO – over an existing roof. In comparison, a metal roof is placed over the existing metal roof with a metal hugger system.
Both methods are incredibly effective ways to get the most from your roof. Please get in touch with our team if you want to know which is best for your situation.
