As a business owner, you’ll do everything you can to keep things running smoothly. While routine maintenance from your Denver roof repair team will help prevent leaks, you’ll eventually need to replace the entire roof system. For most business owners, a full roof replacement feels like little more than an inconvenience. After all, you want your customers and clients to be able to use your services without interruption. Believe it or not, a roof replacement can actually benefit your company and your bottom line. Here’s how:
Increased Energy Efficiency
Cutting back on heating and cooling costs is always a priority. However, older roofing systems often lack the proper amount of insulation required to keep energy loss to a minimum. New materials and advances in roofing technology have made commercial roofs far more energy efficient. By replacing the roof, whether due to the age of the materials or a qualifying event through your business insurance policy
, you’ll see an immediate reduction in your energy bills, saving you money month after month.
Reduced Maintenance Costs
As roofs age, they start to develop more frequent leaks and damage. This is because the materials themselves are no longer as weather-resistant as they were when initially installed. The more maintenance the roof requires, the higher your repair costs will be each year. By replacing an older roof, you’ll reduce the number of maintenance appointments and repairs needed each year. This can help reduce your overall upkeep budget significantly.
Older roofs are often out of warranty, meaning the property owner has to pay for any repairs, even if the damage is due to faulty materials. When you install a new roof, the materials are backed by a manufacturer warranty. For most commercial materials, these warranties last for up to 15 years, depending on the type of materials used. While you’ll still need to schedule regular maintenance to preserve the warranty, you’ll have the peace of mind knowing that any catastrophic failure of the materials used will be covered by the manufacturer.
Protects Your Livelihood
Your business is your livelihood. When you have to close for repairs, you’re losing business, impacting your bottom line and inconveniencing your customers. Installing a new roof ensures that your building remains leak-free as long as possible. Not only does this make your building look more welcoming and inviting to clients, but it also protects the inventory, electronics, and necessary tools from extensive damage. Even losing a small amount of your inventory can take a toll on your operating budget, forcing you to dip into your profits to cover the repair.
