Routine roof maintenance and proper inspections are the key elements to extending the life of your roof system. The idea is to find and solve a minor problem before it becomes a big and costly problem. By the time a leak finds its way through the roof substrate to your ceiling where you see it, you may have severe and costly damage to your insulation, roof decking, and potential mold issues.Both Firestone Building Products and the Roofing Industry Alliance for Progress have done long-term studies that revealed building owners who employ roof maintenance contracts save money and get more years out of their roofs.

Average Lifespan of Roof Average Maintenance Cost

Roofs without Maintenance

11 years $.25 per square foot

Roofs with Maintenance Contracts

21 years $.14 per square foot

 

Two more reasons why you need a Roof Maintenance Plan

Commercial roofing: Roof maintenance and repair

1 – Periodic inspections are typically required by roofing system manufacturers in order to keep their warranties valid.

2 – Contractor traffic damages, deterioration of membrane and flashings, drain and gutter blockages, air conditions leak, storm damage, moisture infiltration, buckles, wrinkles, and bridges, base attachments for mechanical equipment come loose, membrane seams come loose, compressed or crushed insulation, cuts and punctures, membrane swells or cracks, ponding of water, debris buildup, loose metal flashing, caulking cracks, edge cavitation, and the list goes on. Simply put, bad things can happen to a roof and often do. The key is early detection while the solution is still inexpensive and your building is unharmed.
