Navigating roofing projects during uncertain economic times requires careful planning and strategic decision-making. As prices rise and unexpected factors like storm damage may impact your maintenance budget, it is essential to look into various solutions to stretch that budget a bit further.


What To Do When Reroof is Not in the Cards Yet?

Reroof or repair has always been a question of precise timing. Reroof too early and you may lose some return on investment on your existing roof. Reroof too late and the project may become more expensive due to the inability to repurpose your existing insulation or deck. However, in the current economic climate, many businesses have difficulty making capital improvement decisions such as roofing projects in order to preserve the budgets. Therefore, in some cases roofing projects may not be feasible at the moment. So what can you do when you have to delay your reroof due to budgetary concerns?


  1. 1. Schedule Repairs: Address immediate issues and leaks to prevent further damage until a complete reroofing project becomes possible. Contact us today for a free comprehensive evaluation of your roof to determine your existing condition and prioritize what to address first. 
  2. 2. Implement a Preventative Maintenance Plan: Let’s establish a proactive maintenance plan to extend the life of your current roof. After a thorough assessment of your roof’s condition and needs, we will design and implement a custom preventative maintenance strategy to maximize its performance until your deferred reroofing project is approved.
  3. 3. Look Into Roof Coatings: These waterproofing solutions restore the watertight integrity of your existing roof and significantly prolong its life. Check out this article to learn more. To determine whether roof coatings may be a good interim solution for you, don’t hesitate to get in touch with your CentiMark team and schedule a thorough roof evaluation.
  4. 4. Phased Roofing Program: When budgets are tight and a new roof is needed, consider a phased roofing program. Under this scenario, the most critical portion of the building can be reroofed and other sections repaired over time. As your budget allows, additional sections can be reroofed.
  5. 5. Zero-interest Plans: When a new roof is the logical decision and your budget cannot accommodate the cost, consider zero-interest short-term payment programs. CentiMark can work with you to build a payment plan to fit your needs.



Remember that delaying a roofing project should be a temporary solution and monitoring your roof's condition closely is crucial. Reassess the feasibility of a roofing project as soon as circumstances allow. Contact us today for roof evaluations, repairs, coatings and maintenance plans to extend the life and maximize the performance of your existing roof until you are ready.
