A Proactive Approach to Commercial Roof Maintenance

May 6, 2021

A great roofing company will always emphasize the importance of roof maintenance after installation. However, many commercial building managers rarely pay attention to this recommendation, resulting in a no-win situation.  Chances are, they only handle the roof problems as they arise, and this could be a more expensive approach. 

Benefits of Proactive Maintenance Measures

The ‘fix it when it breaks’ slogan is not the best approach to commercial roof maintenance. Your roofing system is a significant investment in your business, and ensuring it’s in good shape should be a priority. 

Below are some reasons why proactively maintaining your roof is essential:

It reduces Repair Costs

Besides constant exposure to adverse weather conditions, failure to maintain your roof can make it vulnerable to other roofing issues with time. Once you schedule proactive roofing maintenance, you will identify all roofing issues early and handle them before they become unmanageable, saving you from excess repair expenses. 

Reduces Liability

Most building owners and administrators have tenants. It is their responsibility to ensure the tenants operate in a leak-free environment, save for natural disasters that are out of your control. However, preventive roof maintenance will ensure your roof is in good condition to withstand damage. It will also help reduce your exposure to dangers from fall accidents, slip and falling debris.

Protects the Interior

There’s no way to escape Mother Nature’s wrath. Some storms are strong enough to destroy your roofing system, resulting in water seeping into the interior. This can lead to extensive interior damage, resulting in costly repairs. Ensuring regular commercial roof checkup reduces such occurrences.

It saves you from Unplanned Downtime

Time is precious; hence it should be a priority to ensure there’s no unscheduled downtime. When you take a proactive roof maintenance approach, you have a greater chance of identifying minor issues before they become challenging. A minor repair will not cause any downtime, but a major one will inconvenience your tenants or business.

Extends your Roof’s Lifespan

Often, the lifespan of a commercial roof is 25-30 years. However, if you don’t properly maintain your roof, the lifespan will be cut short. Besides, reactive maintenance leads to a lifespan of 13-21 years. A proactive approach is an ideal solution to your roof’s more extended life. It gives you a chance to identify and do away with threatening conditions before they grow into challenges that call for replacements and repairs. 

Reduces Energy Consumption

Leaves and other debris can accumulate on your roofing system, making its reflective abilities inefficient. This leads to excess heat buildup in the interior, causing you to rely on air conditioners that raise your utility expenses. By proactively maintaining your roof, you can improve your level of comfort and save on energy.
