Roof Repair

By True Roofing

Commercial Roof Repair

A roof can be said to be the most important component of a building, and the most expensive. Anyone who owns or manages a property is aware that the most expensive aspect of a property is the roofing. That is not surprising given that your structure cannot function without a roof. Nobody wants to live or work in a building without roofing. 

The initial purchase, installation, and maintenance can be costly but it is not unnecessary. If you install a high-quality roof, you will reap the benefits for many years to come. The reason for this is that you would only need to repair it a few times, mostly depending on your local weather.

Regardless, your roof will need to be repaired at least once or twice. This article will assist you in breaking down all of the must-knows that come with repairing your roof.

Factors to consider in commercial roof repair

When you notice a problem with your roof, such as a leak, the first thing that comes to mind is to repair it. Of course, that is the only option. However, there are some factors to consider before hiring a roofing company to repair your roof. Here are a few of them: 

Roof Age: If your roof is new and has a problem, such as water leakage, repairing it is a great option. Weather and other factors that tend to weaken the strength of a roof could be to blame for the leakage. If your roof is about 15 to 20 years old then chances are you might need more than repairing. You may have to replace it entirely.

Cost: If getting estimates from a consultant shows that fixing the roof will be prohibitively expensive, it is best to replace it instead. It is preferable to spend all of that money on a higher-quality new roof rather than repairing it.

Deteriorating Flashings: Flashings are the materials that protect your roof from water damage. They can mostly be fixed. You don’t need to completely replace your roof when flashings are not so severe. If you notice that it is deteriorating and may become a major problem, you should contact a professional as soon as possible to have it repaired. 

Roof leaks: This can result in soft spots and wet insulation. It is recommended that you consult a specialist to determine whether it is repairable or should be replaced.

Project turnaround time: Because repairing can be a lot of work, it can take a long time. If the time it would take to repair the roof is too long for you, you could consider replacing it. 

Season: It is not recommended to repair your roof during the winter. That could even be dangerous. The best time to repair your roof is unquestionably during the summer when the weather is pleasant and the risks are significantly reduced.

These are just a few of the factors that may influence whether you should repair or replace your roof. It is best to consult a company to determine the best option, but it is also critical that you understand a few things yourself so that you do not make a poor decision. Knowing these things can help you determine whether the consultant is making the best decision for you.

Estimate of Commercial Roof Repair

The cost of repairing a roof is not fixed because various factors must be considered before providing an estimate. The cost of materials, time, and labor will be determined by the condition of the roof. It would be necessary to consult professionals to determine the total and precise amount you would be spending. Before speaking with a consultant, you should be aware of the following:

A consistent, reliable, and true to their word roofing contractor will do things the same high quality way every time. If a roofing company you're consulting has no predictable process, they also have no predictable results. In other words, the return on your investment with them will be a gamble. At True Roofing, our roofing process is the same whether it's for a minor roof repair or a major roof replacement. Our results are high quality, reliable, predictable, repeatable. 


The Inspection

The inspection is the first step many contractors skimp on. That's a mistake that can cost both you as the customer and the roofer dearly. That doesn't mean it has to take a long time, however. An inspection by an experienced and highly qualified roofing veteran can be conducted in 30-60 minutes and again, they will follow a set process with a checklist to ensure complete assessment of the situation. If a roofer is casual about assessing your roof and flippant about quoting you thousands of dollars for repairs or installation, we suggest you move on to another company. The inspection sets the ground work for everything else.


Working Out The Details

The quoting, discussion of budgetary concerns, payment options such as financing, and finally scheduling. If you have any special notes or concerns, if you have specific scheduling, if you want a certain type of shingle, custom metal roof, tile roof, etc., we will discuss all these details with you, answer every possible question you have, and ensure you're ready to move on. True Roofing will never use high pressure sales tactics, nor will we ever need to. You will see the value upfront, and we do everything possible to make our services as affordable as possible to everyone at all budget levels. No high pressure sales, ever.


Doing it Right the First Time

The last step is to actually get out there and do the work. Whether it's a minor repair, major repair, small installation, major replacement, your roofing crew will treat it with the same level of attention that we treat all our projects. Armed with the detailed inspection notes and knowing exactly what needs to be done, prepared with the schedule and time frames, and any special notes & concerns you may have, our crew can proceed along the previously agreed on plan and execute it flawlessly. The purpose of the process is to standardize results, and we carry that mindset into our work on the roof as well. Do it once, do it right.

Ask questions

Before deciding on the best contractor for you, there are some questions you should ask:

  • If there would be an inspection before the job starts 
  • Disposal of debris 
  • Workers compensation insurance 
  • Low or no fumes 
  • Tenant friendly repair options 
  • No tear-off 
  • Little or no disruption. 

And if there is anything else you need to know, you simply ask. They should be willing to answer any questions you may have. And at NE Roofing Contractors, you can always count on these topics being taken care of and as smooth a roof repair as possible. 

Commercial Roof Insurance

Can my roof be insured? Yes, indeed! Commercial roofs are insurable. If you want to save money on future roof repairs or replacements, you should consider insuring your roof. 

It is a good idea to insure your roof against water infiltration, insect damage, storm and wind damage, and wind-borne debris from other structures. Your insurance should also cover both repairs and replacement, as well as your entire roof.


You may be wondering why you need to repair or replace your roof in the first place. A variety of factors, particularly the weather, contribute to the overall health of your roof. If you live in a state with extreme weather, such as the Southwest United States, you should have your roof inspected regularly. These weather conditions can be pretty harsh on your roofing and increase the potential for roof damage. 

This is why it is recommended that you insure your roof against all of these unforeseeable weather conditions. It is also critical to use the best contractors to avoid problems. 

At NE roofing contractors, where we have experienced roofers in Jersey City, Manhattan, Newark and many other locations, we make certain that the best service is provided and that you do not have to be concerned about issues such as debris disposal, high disruptions, or unfriendly tenant repair. We take into account all of your suggestions and work hard to provide you with the best service possible.
