As a building owner or facilities manager, you likely understand the benefits of building maintenance. However, if you’re not including a line item for commercial roof maintenance in your budget, you should be. Whether you have steep slope asphalt or tile roofing or flat roofing of any type, it needs maintenance.
A Well-Maintained Roof Benefits Your Business
Although your customers may not be able to see your roof, it can impact their perception of your business. Think about what your opinion is of a business who has trash cans or buckets placed inside to catch rainwater. Chances are good that this gives you a slightly negative impression.
What about your equipment, supplies and inventory? Can water damage either or both? You don’t want to deal with equipment repair or have to write off a loss due to water damage. Commercial roof maintenance helps keep everything inside your building safe. Additionally, if you have to shut down an area of your office or facility due to a water leak, you may see some level of reduced productivity.
Finally, most every building owner knows that proactive maintenance is cheaper than reactive repair. This is especially true for your roof. Roof damage can spread throughout the roof’s structure and inside the building which can lead to extensive renovation after the external repair.
What Does Maintenance Entail
Depending on your roof’s material and age, we’ll recommend either our once a year or twice a year maintenance. During each maintenance visit we’ll inspect your roof, take care of any minor issues like resealing areas around flashing and clearing any clogged drains. If we find an area in need of repair, we’ll provide you with an estimate for that repair. Upon your approval, we take care of the roof repair.
