With so many degrading factors, roof maintenance programs are critical to address any issues on a small scale and save money over the lifecycle of the roof. Whether your roof is newly installed or a few years old, a dedicated maintenance program can help your roof to perform more efficiently in the long-term and remain in maintainable condition up to, or past, the standard lifecycle.
For a $300,000 roof installation, proactively budgeting for items such as:
Visual surveys twice per year, plus after severe storms, at a cost of $.01 per square foot per year.
Moisture surveys on a 3-year cycle at $.05 per square foot per year.
Repair and warranty service documentation at $.02 per square foot per year.
Has the potential for more than $215,000 in savings over a 20-year lifecycle when compared to a roof without a maintenance plan that needs complete replacement after a 10-year lifecycle.
