A properly maintained roof can add years of life to it. Not only will it last longer, but it will cost you less over the life of the roof. Significantly less according to buildings.com. In their study the cost of reactive roof repair was 25 cents per square while proactive roof maintenance cost just 13 cents per square. Add the fact that a proactively maintained roof lasts, on average, 8 years longer than a reactively repaired roof and it’s clear that working with a commercial roofer on regular roof maintenance is essential.
What is Commercial Roof Maintenance?
When you find a commercial roofer, talk to them about their commercial roof maintenance program. Most roofers offer annual or semi-annual inspections for a fixed cost for a complete inspection and minor repairs. Depending on your contract, that repair may include different things like sealing joints or cleaning debris from the drainage system. It may also include resealing flashing. Other inspections are just that, an inspection. No matter what your commercial roofer does for you, they will help reduce overall repair costs.
How Can Spending Money Save Money?
Regular roofing inspections do two things that help save money. First, they identify small issues before they become big problems. That means a potential leak can be stopped before it turns into a big leak that potentially damages the building’s structure, your equipment or inventory. The cost to repair a small problem is significantly less than a larger one.
Second, they document the state of your roof on a regular basis. If you end up with an insurance claim, your adjustor may try to deny the claim based on the condition of the roof. If you can prove, through regular inspections, that your roofing system was in good condition before the storm, you have a better case when it comes to getting your claim covered. Plus, when you call Russ Noyes as your commercial roofer, your adjustor sees we’re a HAAG certified which adds to our credibility.
