Commercial Roof Maintenance

For those of us who live in South Florida, we can agree that we receive more than a fair share of roof-damaging hurricanes. This means that you need a roof that shields your business from the summer rains and provides shade for your clients and employees from the harsh heat that descends in June.

Unfortunately, many business owners tend to underestimate and ignore the importance of commercial roofing maintenance and only call a roofing expert when the problems become unavoidable. However, this "out of sight, out of mind" attitude towards your roofing system only ends up costing huge replacement costs in the long run.

 

Benefits of Maintaining Your Roof

Much like any other equipment or tool in your business, your roofing system needs routine maintenance to provide you with the performance you deserve. Our maintenance services are geared towards giving your roof the specialized care it needs to perform optimally.

Helps You Identify Underlying Problems

It is common for a problem to slip past your eyes, but it would be difficult to slip through the keen eyes of an experienced technician. If you have taken quite some time before scheduling a roofing inspection, it is vital that you schedule one as soon as possible. This is because a roofing expert will identify roofing problems faster before they become more problematic and expensive to repair. For instance, identifying some missing shingles before they eventually turn into problematic interior leaks will not only save you a lot of money but headaches as well. If the small problems are not identified and addressed in time, they gradually compromise the integrity of the building through structural damage.

Extends the Longevity of Your Roof

Sorry to burst your bubble—but commercial roofing is not cheap. However, routine maintenance is a better and cheaper option (compared to the overhead installation costs), assuring you of a longer service from your roof. Most commercial roofing systems are expected to last about 20-30 years, but without proper care, your roof's expected longevity can significantly reduce. Besides, the cost of repairs and replacements increases over time. Therefore, it is important for you to try as much as possible to get the most you can from your roof. The life of a commercial roof is determined by several factors that include weather, age — and the most important one — maintenance. Getting routine maintenance ensures that you prevent your roof from deteriorating, helping you get the most from your investment.

Keeps Your Business Open by Preventing Emergency Repairs

Face it — there are a few more discouraging things than running your business for a day without making any profit. One of the main benefits of regular maintenance is that businesses can run smoothly without delays or obstructions if the roof's maintenance is done right. No business owner wants to risk running their business in challenging times, especially if a roof problem is the issue. That is why it is important for you to schedule routine maintenance and pay attention to your business before the problem becomes too big to ignore.

Allows You to Realize Long-Term Savings

Whoever coined the old age tenet of "prevention is better than cure" must have been in the roofing industry. It is impossible to overstate how less expensive it is for regular maintenance than it is for a major repair or complete replacement. The longer you take before you can act on your roof, the more money it will cost your business in the long run. You do not have to wait until a conspicuous problem manifests itself in your building before you take action. Chances are, most of the equipment and machinery in your commercial building are more valuable than the roof itself.

Helps Improve Your Workplace

Roof damage can jeopardize the safety of your employees, clients, and your company. For instance, unnoticed leaks can result in the growth of mold and mildew, which pose health hazards to the occupants of the building. Besides, minor leaks can lead to structural damage, which weakens your building. Your building also starts to lose its visual appeal, value, and appearance and becomes an eyesore over time. Preventative maintenance keeps you ahead of these minor but vital aspects, hence having a significant impact on your business's profits and reputation.

Keeps Indoors Under Control

When your commercial building is regularly maintained, it stays dry and comfortable throughout the year. Some of the issues addressed during maintenance, like insulation, are extremely essential for comfort during extreme weather conditions. Besides, when the internal conditions of your commercial building are comfortable, your employees or occupants will be more productive. This translates to a better return on investment, not only from identifying and repairing roof damage immediately but also by improving the productivity of your employees.
