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.

Signs You Need Your Roof Replaced?

Roofing materials are cracking or falling off of the roof. You can see debris come off of the roof when it’s windy or rains.
If you have leaks in many different areas inside your building, this is a sign there is a lot of trouble above. In most cases, a replacement is the only way to remedy all damage properly.
Ceiling is Bubbling
When your ceiling has large bubbles, this means there is water damage above that is putting weight onto the structure below. A replacement will repair the damage and prevent water from pooling and causing this problem again.
Moss is Growing
If there is moss or algae at the top of your building, this means moisture is sticking around and damage is nearby. When this happens, a replacement is one of the best ways to clear the issue quickly.

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.

Roof Size

While it’s true that you may be able to get roofing materials at a better price for buying in bulk, a larger roof will still end up costing you more money in the long run. That’s largely because it requires more time and more labor by the team that’s doing the work.

Difficulty Factors

If your commercial roof is difficult to access or has a lot of peaks and slopes, it’s going to cost more money in labor to have a replacement done. The severity of damage and the number of repairs that need to be done can also impact the price of the replacement if that makes the job more difficult.

Cost of Materials

Some roofing materials are more affordable than others, especially when purchased in bulk. However, roofs that are 20,000 square feet or more will simply require a lot of material to cover. When this is the case, the cost will increase based on how much product you need.

Roof Type

The type of roof on your commercial building will also impact the overall price that you pay. For example, a flat roof is generally easier to work on because it’s easy to access and one flat level. However, if you have a sawtooth roof or one with a lot of pitches and slopes, it will add difficulty to the project. Usually, that means a roofer will have to charge more simply because of additional labor.

Installation Costs

Every roofer has different pricing depending on the team they have to hire, the type of roof you have, the material being installed, and the damage being repaired. For this reason, it’s important to get quoted on your job by reputable professionals that you can trust.

Re-Roofing vs Roof Replacement
