Does Your Building Need a Roof Maintenance Plan?
Your Duro-Last roofing system is maintenance free… but the rooftop environment is not!
Depending on the environment at your location, rooftop equipment, building details, rooftop activities and the weather conditions your roof experiences, your roof will benefit from routine inspections to correct problems before they result in leaking or roof damage.
Leaves or windblown debris can collect on rooftops, impeding drainage and should be removed at least annually to ensure the longevity of your roofing system. Falling limbs, tradesmen working on rooftop equipment or loose equipment panels blowing across the roof can can cause cuts or punctures. At your request we will customize a commercial roof maintenance service plan to fit your building and specific roofing system needs.
We recommend that you have your rooftop maintenance performed at least once a year but depending on environment, both a spring and fall inspection may be recommended.
It is also important to have your roof checked after severe weather for damage or debris.
With a proper roof maintenance service plan, you will extend the life of your roof by taking care of minor issues before they become a major repair. Depending on roof design you may help prevent overloading the roof structure with ponding water due to blocked drainage systems.
Quality roofing systems have an average lifespan of 20 to 30 years, with proper care. An ignored rooftop may have its service life cut short by many years and incur more expensive repair costs along the way. And if maintenance is neglected chronic minor roof leaks may damage insulation or building structure, adding significantly to the cost of roof replacement.
Without proper roof care roof service life is reduced, repair costs are higher and the structure, equipment, product, staff and clients are at risk due to leaking or roof failure.
The value of a standard roof maintenance plan far outweighs the costs of major repairs or premature roof replacement due to neglect of the rooftop.
