Do I Need A Flat Roof Replacement?
By some estimates, as many as 80% of roofs are prematurely replaced. Many issues can be addressed with simple repairs or roof restoration, which Empire also offers, but there are some problems that may indicate your roof needs more than regular maintenance.
If your flat roof is experiencing any of the following issues, it may be time to replace:
- You are continuously paying for repairs that don’t seem to improve your roof’s efficiency.
- Repairs are becoming more frequent or widespread.
- Your roof is exhibiting signs of structural deficiency.
- Your roof is reaching the end of its projected service life.
- Your roof is no longer under warranty due to age or condition.
We at Empire Contractors will never suggest a total roof replacement unless it is absolutely necessary. If you suspect your roof may need to be replaced, we will send one of our friendly, knowledgeable technicians out to your site for a thorough inspection before any contracts are signed.
