Roof Maintenance: Reactive or Proactive?

Maintaining your roofing system is extremely important. When it comes to your roof maintenance are you proactive or reactive?

We all know that a properly maintained roof can last significantly longer than a neglected roof. While residential homeowners can face costs associated with replacement, commercial building managers and owners can also see their bottom line dwindle when a neglected roof needs replacing.

Roof Maintenance: Reactive or Proactive?
Be Proactive!!! Don’t wait until your roof looks like this…

But there is also a big difference in how a roof is maintained. According to Roofing Contractor magazine, to save money, many building owners wait until obvious problems are apparent before conducting maintenance. This type of reactive maintenance will, in fact, increase roof life-cycle costs.

Spot repairs made during a proactive maintenance visit are far less costly than replacing membranes, insulation, and decking if a leak occurs down the road. Proactive roof maintenance helps identify potential problem-causing areas, thus decreasing life-cycle costs.

Benefits of proactive roof maintenance include:

  • Peace of mind. You won’t have to worry about roof leaks or being surprised with a big repair bill.
  • Saving money. Last-minute repairs can be costly. Proactive maintenance helps prevent small problems from becoming big ones.
  • Increased lifespan of your roof. Regular inspections help ensure your roofs stay healthy for a long time. If well taken care of, your roof should last well beyond the warranty period. Delaying maintenance could reduce that lifespan.

Now’s the time to set up a proactive maintenance schedule. It’s also important that maintenance checks be done immediately after severe storms with high winds, hail, or even heavy snowfall. Call Spann Roofing to set up a service schedule to keep your roof in proper shape and your roof maintenance costs low.
