Your business’s roof is one of the most critical components of your building. If it begins to fall apart, the rest of your facility will follow shortly after. Preventative maintenance catches issues before they become worse. Here are a few reasons why preventative maintenance is critical to your budget.

Catch Leaks Early

Leaks can lead to severe deterioration of the roof. When your roof leaks, the water damages the interior of the building and leads to structural issues and costly repairs. Additionally, mold and mildew can grow within the structure, causing a health hazard to those inside the building. Finding and fixing a leak before it becomes a massive problem saves you money. It also prevents you from shutting down operations for the repairs that may be needed.

If you start to notice signs of any damage, schedule an inspection to see where the damage is happening and if it can be easily repaired. You never want to find yourself in a situation where the leak has caused more harm than expected, costing you thousands of dollars in a roof replacement. Not to mention all the visitors and staff who could have been exposed to the potential dangers of a damaged roof. We catch the problems early on to save you time and money on the solution.

Increase Roof’s Life Expectancy

Many companies are not prepared to replace their roof 10 to 20 years before the end of its life expectancy. Consider maintenance a form of insurance for your roof. When you invest in maintenance, you are less likely to deal with significant problems compromising the roof’s integrity. It also gives you a heads up of any unnoticeable damage early on.

Maintain Roof Health

Every building’s plan should be different and custom to the roof’s particular needs. However, there are some maintenance tasks that all roofs require. For example, removing debris, water-entry point defect repair, and flashing and vent examination are critical. Likewise, your plan should include documentation of any defects or damage to the roof.
