Do You Need a Complete Commercial Roof Installed or Re-Roof?
Re-roofing and new roof installation are different projects, so it’s important to know the difference between them. Re-roofing involves placing new material over the worn material on your commercial roof. This is a more affordable option, as it doesn’t require as much construction and restores the roof’s strength and appearance more quickly.
When a new roof is installed, more labor is required. Your roofer will tear off the old materials until they reach the deck. Once repairs are completed, they will install the new materials just like they would on new construction. This is a more costly project, although it does provide you with a new roof that has more longevity than re-roofing.

How Much Does a New Commercial Roof Cost?
There are many factors that go into the overall cost of a commercial roof. This is why it’s almost impossible to say an exact price until a roofer has done a full inspection of your property. However, if you’d like to learn more about what goes into a new commercial roof, some of the costs are broken down below.

Re-Roofing vs Roof Replacement
Re-roofing is the best solution for roofs that still have some life in them but need new material to improve longevity and appearance. Roof replacements are the best solutions for roofs that have excessive damage and need to be gutted before being equipped with new materials.

- Can only be done once
- Doesn’t last as long as a roof replacement
