The Importance of Preventive Maintenance for Commercial Roofs

Regardless of the type, every building owner wants to get the most out of their commercial roof system. The most cost-effective way to maximize roof performance and increase its life cycle is a proactive approach to preventive maintenance. The key word here is preventive. If an owner has tarps covering their computers, then at that point they have waited too long.
Building owners should consider that spending a little bit today can save a tremendous amount of time and money tomorrow. A preventive maintenance plan is an investment for the future. After all, you wouldn’t go years without changing your car’s oil or rotating its tires and not expect your vehicle’s performance to suffer, so why would your roof be any different?
Preventive maintenance includes regularly scheduled inspections, periodic repairs of common roofing components (flashing's, drains, curbs, etc.) and the addition of reflective coatings.
Inspections: It is recommended to have your roof inspected at least twice a year, once in the spring and once in the fall. Your local roofing professional should:

1) Inspect drains and downspouts to make sure they are clear of blockage that will inhibit proper drainage.
2) Check penetrations and flashings for any gaps or tears.
3) Inspect rooftop vents and equipment to make sure they are well sealed.
4) Look for any signs of damage to the roof and recommend solutions.
Proper preventive maintenance is one the most effective tools for maximizing the service life of a commercial roofing system and allows for an organized approach to successful roof asset management. Keep in mind that the initial cost of your roof is only a portion of its total cost of ownership over the roof’s lifespan. The key to increasing performance, while simultaneously decreasing cost, is a proactive method of properly identifying and repairing minor problems today to avoid major complications tomorrow. Chances are you spent a considerable amount of money for your new roof, so it is in your best interest to protect it by implementing a habit of regular preventive maintenance.
