Restore, Repair, or Replace? Choosing the Right Response for Your Roof

You know that your commercial roof requires attention, but you’re not sure of the right route to take. Does it need to be replaced? Or might some minor repairs be sufficient?

Read on for our expert opinion.

Serious Signs That Your Roof Needs Help

If you’ve noticed any of the following issues in your roof, it’s time to take action:


Ignoring cracks in your roofing is a dangerous game. These can become very dangerous fairly quickly, potentially threatening the integrity of your entire roof. Repairs are generally cheaper than a replacement. That’s why when cracks begin to appear, you should call out the experts immediately.

Weather Damage

After your roof has been exposed to extreme weather conditions, it’s smart to have it checked out by the pros. Quick fixes focus on how a roof looks, but here at Castro Roofing, we go beyond the visible problems to maintain its entire structure in excellent condition.

Missing or Exposed Elements

If parts of your roof have fallen off or you’re seeing elements that you haven’t seen before, these are concerning changes. A small repair may be all that’s needed, but if you leave it too long, the situation could worsen.


There are very few warning signs as obvious as a leak when it comes to roofing issues! If water is entering your building through the roof, this should be treated as an emergency. The more water that enters, the more likely it is that serious damage will occur.

Shoddy Workmanship

If your roof was installed badly in the first place, it’s just a matter of time before issues arise. Rather than wait and see what happens, you should invite a reputable firm like Castro Roofing to perform an inspection. We can address problems proactively.

What to Consider Before Choosing a Roofing Service

In general, we advise that clients replace their roof if the projected repair will cost 20% or more of the replacement cost. This is so they enjoy the best possible value for money.

Other factors that influence our advice include the extent and location of the damage to your roof. If it poses a health and safety risk to maintain, we may recommend a full replacement.

Naturally, you will have your own concerns including the impact on your business and the overall cost of the work.

When you consult the experienced and dependable professionals at Castro Roofing, we give our honest opinion. We will recommend the best course of action, bearing in mind your unique circumstances.

Restoration: A Middle Way

If a repair won’t suffice but a replacement feels extreme, there is another approach you can take to your roof. Castro Roofing offers a restoration service that will address any issues and reinforce your roof so it lasts longer.

This is in many ways the best of both worlds: it offers a long and short-term solution in one. Our liquid roof system is far superior to superficial paint coating options.
