While this question is impossible to answer without seeing the roof leak in question, it’s safe to say that most leaking roofs do not need to be entirely replaced. Hiring a professional roofing contractor for repairs is the best thing to do. They should be able to inspect the leak and offer a solution far less radical than replacement of the entire system.

Flat roofing is a different ballgame than traditional pitched residential roofing. From the materials to the installation procedures, everything is different – including the expertise needed. In flat roofing, the installers’ skill is just as important as the roofing material you choose. Poor installation leads to the pooling of moisture that inevitably causes leaking. You also need to think about biannual roof maintenance when you have a flat roof. This can help you avoid costly repairs down the road.
Most commercial and industrial roofing is expected to last somewhere between 10 to 30 years – depending upon the environmental factors at play. 15 years is a good average for commercial flat roofing in Chicago and Northwest Indiana. With proper inspections and maintenance, a commercial flat roof’s lifetime can be greatly extended.
Working with an experienced roofing contractor means any time of year is a good time for roof replacement. They will be able to advise you on the best times in your specific area. While most materials have no temperature barriers to application, there are certain times of the year when inclement weather and subzero temperatures are more common. Having your project planned to avoid those times is the best option, but roofing issues don’t wait for the best time to occur, so call a professional like Flat Roof Inc. as soon as you feel the need.
