When it comes to roof maintenance, preventive and reactive approaches are both important. However, putting a premium on the first can eliminate the necessity for the second. Beyond reducing the chances of surprise leakage, preventive roof maintenance also offers unheralded benefits:
Lowering Repair Costs
You don’t need to be a veteran roofing contractor, like Elite Construction, to conclude that minor issues are less costly to fix than major ones. Commercial property owners usually spend 11¢ less per square foot by tackling proactive repairs yearly than those that only react to leaks. Homeowners should expect practically similar savings.
Avoiding Unplanned Expenses
The beauty of arranging routine inspections is that you can prepare for repairs financially. The same can’t be said about out-of-scheduling roofing projects. In addition to spotting signs of damage, we can tell you how much time you have to address them so you can plan ahead.
Dealing with surprise leaks in the middle of the night can upend your life. It can affect your sleep and your work the following day. If you have plans set, they might have to wait because active leakage is a pressing matter. In commercial properties, any roofing company will attest that unscheduled repairs could affect your day-to-day business operations.
Averting Premature Replacement
Undiscovered, isolated problems can accelerate the deterioration of the entire roofing system. A great case in point is severe sheathing damage due to an undetected leak. If you want to maximize the service life of your current roof, make preventive maintenance a top priority.
Getting Insurance Claim Approved
Any roofing contractor will tell you that preventive maintenance is one of the keys to insurance claim approval. Scheduled inspections and timely repairs, create a paper trail proving that you’re doing everything to keep it in good shape. In cases of serious storm damage, your insurer can’t deny your claim due to neglect.
