Commercial roofs usually last about 20 years. Restoration can add 10 to 15 years of life. Labor and materials account for the bulk of roof repair costs, but the design of the roof and the magnitude of the damage will also influence the price. Usually, most roofs will last from 20 to 25 years, although this service life varies depending on the material used to build the roof.
Inspecting the roof for minor damage and wear once or twice a year can prevent major problems in the future that would require expensive repair or even a complete roof replacement. It is essential to remove dirt and peeling paint before treating the roof; otherwise, any residue left on the surface of the shingles will interfere with the adhesion of the roof membrane and subsequently the paint will peel off or lift. Deep cleaning is required to prepare a roof for roof restoration, and most standard pressure cleaning machines fail to do this. Asphalt is a common roofing material, but homeowners can also choose a metal, composite, slate, shingle, shingle or flat roof option.
Sealing means applying a special roofing paint or coating and costs per square metre or per hour, depending on the roofing contractor. You will need to make sure that you hire a roofing company that is competent in repairing your particular roofing material. Much depends on the existing condition of the roof and how many repairs are needed before the roof is sealed. Since most of us don't feel comfortable climbing onto a roof to make repairs, it's essential to hire a roofing contractor you can trust.
Because working from the top of their roof can be dangerous, most homeowners will be better off calling a professional for all their roofing needs. For example, many consider tile roofs to be easy to repair, while slate or tile roofs are among the most difficult. A professional roof restoration job will also keep you on the right side of the line when it comes to your homeowners insurance, while poor or failed work could void the policy. Roof resealing can be added to these costs, it is optional, but it provides an additional layer of protection and can increase the longevity of the roof.
Cleaning the roof regularly at least once a year (or more depending on the weather) helps reduce the need for future repairs, maintains the roof and keeps your home looking attractive. Usually, the words “roof repair costs” fill homeowners with visions of overwhelming bills, but repairing a roof is simpler and less expensive than replacing a roof.
