What is more appealing— replacing your commercial roof every 10-15 years or having your existing roof stay intact for more than 25 years? With a good commercial roof maintenance program in place, you don’t have to settle for ongoing, costly roof problems or premature roof replacement. Routine inspection and maintenance performed by a capable professional will help keep those heavy expense burdens at bay, ensure your roof warranty is valid, and increase your roof’s odds of lasting for its life expectancy.
Why Is Roof Maintenance Important?
At some point, all roofing systems have problems. Leaks, cracks, blisters, surface erosion, weathering– those are just a few of the many problems a roof may encounter. Even the smallest leak can have a huge impact. If it’s left untended, it could lead to a host of major problems and some expensive roof work.
For the building owner, the advantages and benefits couldn’t be any clearer. To put it in simple terms, a good roof maintenance program can translate into thousands of dollars in savings.
You Need Capable Commercial Roofing Professionals
There’s another thing that’s just as important as the need for roof maintenance. The people who handle the maintenance program need to be capable roofing professionals with strong expertise and solid training credentials. After all, letting the wrong person on a roof can invite in disaster or, worse, a complete roof failure.
Choice Roof Contractors take your roofing needs very seriously. They have all undergone a well-respected, comprehensive commercial roof systems training seminar for additional expertise. They also abide by the strictest professional standards for roof servicing and all-around performance.
Even better, those factors are one extension of their commitment to providing completely professional roof maintenance services. For the lifetime of their business, Choice Roof Contractors also have access to highly-experienced roofing contractors who are available to answer questions or concerns. In other words, building owners can be assured by our members’ access to around-the-clock access to highly professional roofing experts and an extensive roofing knowledge base.
The Roof Maintenance Program Includes:
- Comprehensive examination of an entire roof area for damage
- Careful evaluation of the roof’s perimeter for any damage, one of the most common areas for roofing problems
- Removal of all debris on roof
- Inspection and cleansing of all drains and grates
- Close examination of status of all roof seams, curbs, and penetrations
- Confirmation of no spaces having developed at roof’s weld points
- Assessment of all sheet metal flashings and counter flashings at all key points of roof
- Verification of all flashings being safe and secure
- Examination and confirmation of roof access scuttle, ladder, and locking mechanism as operable
- Assessment and confirmation of all HVAC unit access doors being in good shape and secure
- Submission of written report to building owner of condition of roof and other important and relevant details
When is Choice Roof Contractor Group’s Maintenance Program Available?
One of our quality-minded professionals will be available to inspect and perform light maintenance on your roof on an annual, if not semi-annual basis. Roof inspection and maintenance sessions are best done in the spring and fall. Many building owners schedule their springtime session sometime between April 1 and June 30 and/or the fall session sometime between October 1 and December 30. For wintertime sessions, it is recommended an inspection and maintenance service be done right before the next rainy season.
Another thing to keep in mind is location. Some areas of the country have high ultraviolet ray exposure, coastal climates, or places subject to high-speed winds. In those areas, semi-annual sessions are a recipe for best roof damage control and containment results.
Roof Maintenance Does More than Save Money
When a roof is inspected and maintenanced, the details of what was done are recorded in the roof’s history documentation. A detailed roof history is invaluable in situations such as insurance claim filings, where critical details can be cross-checked and referenced when necessary. A roof maintenance schedule can also add value to your building. By proactively taking care of any problems, you can add many years of life to your investment.
A detailed roof history will also bring other benefits. These include:
- Easier to do precise business budgeting
- Makes building owner aware of what’s going on with the roof
- Easier to monitor instances of foot traffic on roof
