Commercial Roof Maintenance
Investment in your roof doesn’t end when installation is completed. That’s when it’s time to look down the road and incorporate the maintenance events into its future that will stretch the value of your build-cost as long as possible. And it’s worth the effort: research reports that proactively maintained roofs last up to 60% longer than reactively maintained roofs.
Appropriate roof maintenance doesn’t have to be complicated or expensive. But there are a few things you should know, and some of them might come as a surprise. Less than 1% of roof failures occur due to defective materials. That means that aside from installation errors, what happens to your roof after construction is most often to blame.
Of course that includes weather. It also includes work performed by other trades. HVAC, painting, plumbing, and general maintenance can all be a source of wear-and-tear to your roof. Debris and material left over from work performed can cause damage and absorb heat. Keeping your roof clean minimizes unnecessary damage and preserves energy efficiency.
The most vulnerable aspects of your roof assembly should be regularly inspected to stay one step ahead of wear and tear:

“An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” Never is that more true than when it comes to your roof’s maintenance. The most important function of a roof is to keep the elements at bay. If water finds its way in, larger problems are likely downstream, and smaller problems are inclined to get bigger. That’s why regular inspection is essential to your roof’s longevity. Inspection is the critical tool in proactive maintenance– the opportunity to address issues before they become problems.
