Although most commercial roofing systems are more durable than residential roofs, it’s important that you keep them in good condition throughout their service life. The most cost-effective way to go about this is to invest in preventive maintenance.
In this post, the experts at A-Best Roofing explain why preventive maintenance is critical to the health and longevity of your commercial roof.
Prevents Small Problems From Worsening
An ounce of prevention is worth more than a pound of cure. Preventive maintenance not only keeps your roof in good condition, but it also allows you to address relatively minor roofing problems that might become a big problem in the near future.
Leaks, for example, can rapidly grow in just a couple of weeks, turning from something harmless into something that puts your inventory and equipment at risk. Preventive maintenance also costs a lot less than repairing major damage.
Increases Your Roof’s Lifespan
Most commercial roofing systems, such as single-ply membranes, have an average life span of 25 to 30 years. Preventive maintenance helps extend your commercial roof’s lifespan, lengthening the time between replacements.
Finally, investing in preventive roof maintenance actually makes your roof easier to maintain. Since you’re addressing problems before they even begin, you reduce the frequency of more extensive roof repairs. This is especially important for flat roofs, as small problems on the roof surface and drainage system can become costly concerns when not addressed immediately.
