When you take good care of your roof, you are making an investment in your building. Roof leaks can lead to structural damage and can harm the products and materials inside your facility. While some damage is visible at the roof surface, the untrained eye will miss larger, more costly issues to repair, such as hail damage or moisture in the insulation layers.
Performing regular inspections and scheduling repairs during fair weather are the best strategies in avoiding emergency and unplanned roof repair, according to FacilitiesNet.
The experts at Centimark say every dollar spent on preventative maintenance, saves an estimated five dollars through reduced emergency repairs, decreased building interior damage and increased roof life expectancy.
The service life of a roof without a Preventative Maintenance Program is estimated to be 12 years, drastically reduced from its intended service life of 20 years.
Read through this roofing maintenance timeline to find out if you are on schedule with the correct preventative measures. Gauge your maintenance calendar practices to make sure you are adequately protecting your roofing investment.
