Importance of Roof Maintenance
All roof systems require periodic maintenance and should be inspected a minimum of twice a year, once in the spring and again in the fall. If roof conditions are subject to unusual conditions, inspections should take place on a more frequent basis (6-12 times per year).
Roofs should always be inspected after severe weather or in the case that structural damage has occurred to the building.
A preventative maintenance inspection consists of a thorough visual inspection, photographs and documentation of the roof system. This includes penetrations, metal components and accessories, flashings, adjacent walls, mechanical equipment or any other special conditions that can impact the roof system’s integrity.

Repairing vs Replacing Your Commercial Roof
Roof repairs are just one of the many maintenance checks properties must undergo. If the roof issues found are only minor and can be remedied, there is no need to replace it at all.
Likewise, if your roof insulation is still intact, in good condition and has not yet reached its expected lifespan, a repair is the most practical route. Not only is it more affordable than replacing the roof, it can also prolong its lifespan.
When to Replace Your Roof
Experts suggest that if more than 25% of a roof has been damaged, then its replacement is highly advised. Aside from the roof itself, it’s also important roof insulation be replaced once it is already wet or ruined.
Signs of Moisture or Water Damage
Water is a powerful force. Once it seeps beneath your roof’s shingles, it can quickly find its way inside, where it can cause serious damage and even health problems.
If you see signs of moisture inside, including brown spots on the ceiling, peeling paint or mold, you should probably opt to replace your entire roof rather than attempt a patch or repair.
A Recent Disaster
If your neighborhood was recently hit with a hurricane, tornado, or especially violent storm, the damage may be extensive enough to require a total roof replacement. Even a single harsh winter can push an ailing roof into a state of emergency.
Is your roof just five years old and leaking? In this case, the problem is more likely related to the quality of the installation or even a defect in the materials rather than normal wear and tear.
On the other hand, a 20-year-old roof with a couple of problem areas is probably near the end of its lifespan and due to be replaced.
You should also consider the type of roofing materials you have. For example, an 80-year-old slate roof might have a few more decades of life ahead of it, whereas a metal roof in its eighth decade is well past its prime.
Asphalt shingles are the most common roofing material due to their affordability and aesthetic appeal, and the latest generation of premium asphalt shingles are made to last up to 50 years with proper maintenance.
