Savvy facility & property managers know the importance of preventative maintenance (PM) for their buildings’ roofs. No one really wants to hear they need a new roof, so pay attention to it in advance – have a semi-annual or seasonal preventative maintenance program in place. It costs so little yet can save so much!
Besides obvious things like clearing debris out of drains and gutters, PM can also reveal problems that can be corrected in time to prevent major damage to your building and its contents. We regularly find and repair cuts, tears, cigarette burns and bullet holes (yes, bullet holes – what goes up must come down!). Flashing issues, vent pipes, open seams, membrane shrinkage, and deterioration from the sun’s ultra-violet rays are some other roofing problems that need to be monitored and corrected.
It’s so important to tend to these issues quickly because timing can make a huge difference in the damage they cause and the costs to repair them. Call us at Commonwealth Roofing and we’ll give you a no-cost, no-obligation assessment of your roof’s condition and set a plan for getting the most value out of it.
