THE COSTS OF ROOF REMOVAL
As we often say on this blog, we are proud to have developed an environmentally-friendly roof that doesn’t require tear off of the existing roofing system. Eliminating roof tear off is a great way to reduce the amount of material going to the local landfill, helping the environment while saving you money. Let’s look at a few different ways that avoiding roof tear off can save you money.
Someone has to get up on your roof and tear off the existing roof, and they aren’t going to do it for free. A commercial roof, especially a large commercial roof, takes a lot of time and a lot of hands to tear it off. The problem with roofs is you don’t want them to blow off in the wind, so they are fastened pretty well to the deck. Tear off is hard work and you have to pay someone to do it.
Again, this cost goes up with the size of the roof, but dumpsters can be really expensive. A large roof will fill up a lot of dumpsters, each of which has a price tag attached. You also have to have the dumpsters delivered, have to have a spot to place them, and may need equipment to lift the dumpsters up to the roof depending on the height of the roof and material on the roof.
Tear Off Can Lead to Increased Project Duration
A roofing project that requires tear off will last significantly longer than one that doesn’t. By eliminating the need for tear off, you can get your project completed faster, for less labor costs, and with less time having your building exposed to the elements. We’ve all heard the old adage, “Time is money”. That phrase has stuck around for years because it’s true.
Tearing off your old roof takes time, money, and labor. If you can find an effective system that eliminates the need for tear off, we believe you’ll be happier with your roofing project than if you had to perform tear off. You can find that system from us, a silicone roof coating.
