No matter what type of roof you have, it will likely have to be replaced at some point.
The materials used to construct a roof on a commercial structure can last for many years. Depending on the material selected for your structure, the roof may last for 15 years or up to 50+ years. Metal roofing is one of the most durable options available, while shingles are quite common because they’re more affordable than other options. But no matter what type of roof you have, it will likely have to be replaced at some point. No roofing materials are designed to last forever, and some have to be replaced more frequently than others.
When the time comes for commercial roofing replacement on your structure, you might notice some warning signs. An old or worn-out roof isn’t as efficient as a newer roof, which means energy bills tend to skyrocket toward the end of its lifespan. You might also notice that the space feels drafty in winter or warmer during the summer months, or that it’s difficult to maintain a consistent temperature. Another warning sign of roofing trouble is moisture in the space. When a roof can longer prevent water from seeping through it, commercial roofing replacement may be necessary.
