Roof maintenance or as it is more commonly known, roof management is the proactive way to give your roof system a longer life span. Many property owners look for a roof system that can last 20 years or more, but how you maintain that roof will heavily weigh in on whether or not your roof system can last that long. Having a warranty is not enough since most warranties void if the roof is not properly maintained. That is why we offer a comprehensive approach to giving you the roof maintenance you need to save in the long run.

Below you will see various common myths that usually put your roof at risk since they are often times not true.
PLAN AHEAD & SAVE
Instead of reacting to your roof issues, be proactive and always know the status of your roof system. The best way to accomplish this is by implementing some form of yearly roof management system. Most modern roofing systems include some type of insulation beneath the membrane. As a building owner, you have invested a significant amount of dollars in your existing roof system. However, this major asset can become a liability. But since it is a major asset of the building envelope, you want to protect that investment.
Over time, weather, moisture, freeze/thaw cycles, and other natural and random forces constantly exposed to the building can leave your operations and investment at risk of various types of damage including water infiltration. Water infiltration can severely deteriorate insulation material causing building owners significant repair or costly and unnecessary premature roof replacement.
Proactively inspecting and maintaining your roof each year will ensure that damaging water will stay out of your roofing system, and often offering the opportunity to reuse this material during the restoration or re-covering process. These types of approaches not only extend the life span of your current roofing system, but also significantly reduces the life cycle cost of your roof.
