A comprehensive commercial roofing maintenance plan is the best – and most economical – way to extend the life of your commercial roof. A well-maintained roof will last many years past its initial warranty period, and every savvy building owner understands that delaying roof replacement as long as possible frees up money that can be used for other expenditures. Experienced building owners who need to get the most from their roof investment realize that regular commercial roof maintenance is simply an integral part of a fiscally responsible facility plan.
Ideally, a commercial roof should be inspected a minimum of twice a year, usually in spring and fall. Most commercial roof system warranties have specific maintenance guidelines that must be followed in order to keep the warranty in effect. In some cases, enrolling in a qualified commercial roof maintenance plan can actually extend your warranty.
In addition to regular inspections, warranty maintenance and general repairs, there are things building owners and mangers can do to extend the service life of their commercial roof. All workers who have access to the roof should follow general precautions, such as:
Keeping accurate and complete records of your commercial roof’s history is imperative to a successful commercial roof maintenance plan. It’s nice to keep both a digital copy and a hard copy of all the necessary documents, which should include original roof specs, shop drawings and proposals, daily construction reports, manufacturer’s roofing system product sheets, warranty documents and records of all roof changes, modifications and repairs.
An initial comprehensive commercial roof survey, including an energy audit analysis, provides a solid foundation at the start of a new commercial roof maintenance program. The survey should feature a detailed report of the roof’s current condition, the age and size of the roof, and the type of roofing system present. Any factor that influences the existing or future roof condition, such as location and type of access portals, the number and placement of paths, prevailing environmental factors and building use, are all-valuable for establishing a successful commercial roof maintenance plan.
