Commercial Roofing Tulsa- Repair or Replace?

Commercial Roofing Tulsa- How bad is the roof and how much is damaged will determine if you should repair or replace the commercial roofing system.

Problems can arise from a roof install that went wrong, designed incorrectly, not properly maintained and just typical wear and tear. Even though commercial roofing in Tulsa is designed for long-term performance, there can be many problems that develop during the lifespan of the roofing system.

When you’re looking into fixing a commercial roofing system, there are a couple options of full replacement, repair, re-cover and coat. How do you determine which maintenance you’ll need?

Some of the questions you’ll want to ask yourself are:

  • How easy would a tear off be?
  • What is the building used for?
  • Where is it located?
  • Does the building generate moisture?

Going down the path of these questions will determine the best route to go.


With a repair, some of the roof problems can be minor and easily repaired. If the membrane of the roof is in good shape or if the roof has good insulation, a repair might be in-store. Some of the benefits of a roof repair in Tulsa is less costly than a roof replacement, and will help extend the life of the roof.

Sometimes the roofing system doesn’t need a full overhaul. Choosing a re-cover includes a redo of the membrane if the roof hasn’t been re-covered prior. The benefits of a re-cover include cheaper maintenance, extended warranties, and less disruptive than a complete replacement.

Roof Replacement

Sometimes a commercial roofing system needs an overhaul of repairs that add up to being a complete roof replacement. For example, if the commercial roofing system has been repaired before, you will need to replace it. A rule of thumb to know if it’s a replace or repair is that 25% or more of the roof is damaged, a replacement should be implemented.

The benefits to choosing a roof replacement in Tulsa:

  • Looking for long-term solution
  • If you plan on keeping the building that you’re in for a longer period of time
  • Lower maintenance cost
  • Energy savings (go-green)
  • Least likely to have reoccurring issues

Most commercial roofing systems have incorporated a coating in order to extend the life. A coating can simply add extra protection against leaks, helps improve the aesthetics, cost effective, and energy savings with reflecting heat and UV qualities.
