The roof is one of the building’s most valuable assets. Not only does it protect the building, but it also safeguards all of the occupants and sensitive materials within the structure. Roof inspections are recommended annually or semi-annually depending on different indicators including: condition of roof, location, and sensitivity of interior assets.
If you are a commercial property owner or facility manager, you know first-hand how expensive emergency roof repair can be. The best way to avoid such costly surprises is to establish a routine maintenance plan, which will keep you abreast of potential problems before they occur. Proactive versus reactive maintenance can save thousands of dollars over the life of your roof.
By beginning a roof maintenance plan, you will enjoy the satisfaction of knowing you are proactively maintaining and controlling costs. You can budget for repairs and schedule them when it’s convenient for you. You will have more options in terms of solutions when you catch the damage early. Plus, a well maintained roof will outlast a neglected one up to ten years.
