Preventative Roofing Maintenance
Ignoring maintenance is the single biggest cause for premature roof failure! Taking good care of a roof with regular inspections and simple maintenance can significantly extend the life of your roof and commercial property.
During an inspection, our seasoned workmen evaluate the roof, its penetrations at flashing tie-ins and collars, membranes, walkways, service areas at roof top mechanical equipment, drainage, foliage overgrowth, sheet metal copings and counter-flashings as well as conditions including contaminants, trash and debris.
Out-of-sight, out-of-mind thinking is not just a poor approach to roof health and management of capital investment, its also dangerous. Facility Managers can look like heroes instead of profit spenders because in actuality, Roof Maintenance Pays!
Proper roof maintenance not only adds years of life to a roof, it uncovers problems before a roof leak wets insulation, creates mold, damages the interior building and/or creates tenant complaints, lost use of space and revenue, slip and fall accidents and more.
Building owners can lose a minimum of $0.07 per square foot per year in a building value when roofs are not properly maintained. Additionally, roofing experts contend that a building owner should budget between $0.05 and $0.25 per square foot per year for preventative maintenance. Most often, proper maintenance can double the life of a roof!
