The Cost of Cutting Costs on a Commercial Roof

December 10, 2019

If you’re thinking of cutting costs for your commercial roof repair or replacement by using a cheaper installer, think again! A company that offers low prices may complete your roofing project with low-quality materials, or materials that aren’t suitable for your type of building. Or they may not guarantee their work—so you could find yourself having to make yet more repairs sooner than you expect! Not only will an inferior repair or installation job cost you more in the long run than a job done right the first time, you’ll also lose money when your problem roof interrupts your business’ operations on a regular basis.

According to the National Roofing Contractors Association, 48% of roof system failures occur due to workmanship. Read on to see how you can save money by using a highly reputable installer.

High-Quality Materials

Don’t cut corners with materials. While high-quality materials cost more up front, they’ll last longer and require fewer repairs—and that saves you money in the long run. A reputable roofing contractor will use the best materials available to install your commercial roofing system. 


People who work for a high-quality roofing company receive regular safety and skills-based training. While this costs the company money and will raise installation prices, a skilled and safety-minded team ultimately costs less than an untrained, careless team when you consider the expense of mistakes and improper technique.


When you decide on a roofing company, make sure their workers are insured. This will add to the cost of your project, as insurance for roofers is expensive—but it’s a price worth paying, as it protects you as well as the people working on your roof. Roofers work at significant heights, which puts them at great risk on a daily basis, and accidents do happen. And if the company you hire doesn’t carry insurance, you could be liable for any accidents that occur on your property. It’s not worth the risk! 

Avoid Repeated Patching 

While it’s tempting to patch a roof over and over again as problems occur, repeated patching is never a good solution. Frequent leaks and weather damage will interrupt your operations, and you’ll waste time having to call your roofers back again and again. You’ll ultimately save more money when you replace your roof when it needs it.
