Roofing is one of your building’s biggest assets and one that is under the most duress from the outside elements. In Tampa, where MaintenX is headquartered, we understand the importance of quality roofing due to our turbulent hurricane season. Clients who take care of their roofing systems don’t have to worry about water damage and structural issues during the summer months, because their roofing is prepared for the worst.
Regular maintenance can save you thousands of dollars by preventing damage and emergency repairs. By making a few simple changes to your roofing maintenance plan, you can become a more proactive facility manager and help your maintenance team improve the quality of service along the way.
Proactive vs. Reactive Roofing Maintenance
Proactive roofing maintenance is the less popular approach because it seems more expensive. Regular roof inspections and cleanings will increase your annual spending slightly, but it will save you from shelling out for major roofing repairs and renovations. Preventative maintenance can also add 10 to 15 years of service life for your roof, making the yearly inspection and cleaning well worth the effort.
Do you know what your roof needs?
Do you know what service your particular type of roofing needs, or how to identify early signs of problems? If not, you should have a talk with your maintenance team to better understand your roofing system’s needs and maintenance schedule that will best suit the material type. Some roofing materials like concrete need less maintenance, while stylish roofing options like wood shakes will need a strict maintenance routine to preserve their look and utility.
What about maintenance goals? Do you know how to tell when your roof maintenance plan is working? If your roof is well cared for, you can expect lower energy costs because the interior will be better insulated. You’ll also have no visible signs of damage, mildew, or algae growth if your roofing is regularly inspected and cleaned.
