If you want your building to be protected from the elements, you have to consider the option of either replacing or upgrading it. Although replacement is often recommended when you have a specific type of roof in mind, or when the old one is heavily damaged, retrofitting is actually a cost-effective and overall superior solution for improving everything from thickness and elongation, to making your roof resistant to hail, wind uplift and heavy foot traffic.
One of the mistakes some building owners make is to opt for tearing off the old roof and installing a new a single-ply roofing system that has to be held down by lots of screws and actually reduces the waterproofing thickness of their roofs. Such a retrofit is counterproductive, and can even lead you to waste a lot of money.
Upgrading to a metal roof can be done easily by simply adding new metal panels on top of your existing flat roof area. Although the flat roof requires some preparation for the process, you’ll find that a top notch metal roofing Denver team can get everything done quickly. Metal roof panels can even be installed on top of existing flat metal roofing installations, as long as the old roof is not too badly damaged.
If you want to learn more about the process of retrofitting your roof, and even if you just want some additional coating to protect your roof from UV radiation during the summer, the best course of action is to contact your local commercial roofing experts and ask them about the process directly.
