Commercial Roof Maintenance

Proactive Commercial Roof Maintenance

Commercial Roof Maintenance You Can Count On

Taking a proactive approach to commercial roof maintenance can save you money and protect your roof. On average, property owners that react to problems as they arise spend much more money on repairs and maintenance than property owners that take the proactive approach.

In addition, proactive maintenance can significant increase the lifespan of a roof. With reactive maintenance, the average lifespan of a roof is 13 years. Proactive maintenance can extend that lifespan to 21 years on average. This will help you to put off replacement and decrease the total life cycle costs of your roof.

Comparing Price Against Value

When you’re deciding on a commercial roofing contractor, your goal shouldn’t be to pay the lowest possible price. Instead, you should think about how much you’ll spend across the roof’s lifecycle. If a contractor overlooks the long-term costs associated with a roof, you’re likely to spend more in the long run.

Tools like infrared scanners and services like membrane testing can help to identify where damage is most likely to occur. With this cutting-edge, in-depth analysis, you can tackle potential issues before they occur, helping to prevent future damage. A faulty roof could also be a liability, which why you should work with professionals that can help you avoid problems.

Deciding Between Roof Repair, Restoration, and Replacement

Commercial Roof Maintenece ContractorsAcross the lifespan of a roof, it’s put through significant wear and tear. Not only do roofing materials naturally degrade over time, but weather can also take a toll on your roof. By using tools to test and analyze your roof, a roofing contractor can get a better sense of the condition your roof is in currently. From there, you can decide if your roof should be repaired, restored, or replaced.

The roofing provider you work with should have detailed knowledge of energy solutions, building codes, as well as roofing systems. Not only are there nine major roofing types, but there are 60 subsets as well. An experienced professional can work with you to make the best decision for your property.

If you work with a provider that offers repair and restoration services in addition to replacements, it’s more likely that the analysis they conduct will be accurate. Generally speaking, it’s worthwhile to repair a roof if repairs will allow it to survive its predicted service life without exceeding the cost of replacement.

Technology Is Essential

Technology adoption rates have been slow in the construction industry. However, the benefits of technology are clear. Using technology allows contractors to:

* Save Money
* Boost Productivity
* Stay Organized

If you work with a provider that’s invested in technology, that provider is well equipped to help you make smart decisions regarding your roof’s maintenance. With the right software, it will be easier to manage roof assets. Tracking and reporting tools such as inventory management and invoice and data tracking, and also give you a clear picture of your roof’s lifespan.

Commercial Roof Repair Contractors With Experience and Integrity

When providers use technology internally, they can improve the cost efficiency of their operations. With GPS tracking, management can remotely supervise technicians, which can lead to a productivity increase of more than 20%. Some of these savings are passed on to the client. On top of that, when a provider uses electronic invoice and accounting software, you’re far less likely to have issues with billing.

Are Multiple Technicians Necessary?

According to studies on efficiency, jobs should be approached with the lowest number of workers required to complete the project safely. In most cases, the number of needed technicians for roofing project is one. When fewer technicians are on a job, costs are likely to be lower.

Experience Is Essential

People often assume that the biggest hazard to a roof is the weather, but that’s not actually true. An estimated 40% of roof problems are caused by human error. This could include faulty installation or maintenance. This makes it all the more important to work with a roofing company that has experienced and well-trained technicians.

Quality management systems are essential as well. Certification indicates that the provider has clear standards in place to maintain high-quality service. Sadly, just 12% of the service industry is certified, which means finding a provider that meets these standards may not be easy.

A provider depends on its technicians to provide consistent results. That’s why you should confirm that the provider conducts regular training on safe work practices. Providers should also assess current practices so that they can improve safety standards.

It’s essential to make sure that both the provider you’re using and that company’s technicians have ample experience. Many contractors haven’t been in business for long, and they simply don’t have the knowledge and experience required for the job. Data from the U.S. Census Bureau states that 45% of roofing contractors are newly formed. Ideally, you should work with a provider that’s been working in this industry for at least a decade.

Talk to the providers that you’re considering and ask them to tell you more about their self-performance policy. When you work with a contract that self-performs, you can rest easy knowing that the technician on your roof has received the necessary safety and uniform standard training. If you work with a provider that sub-contracts, you can’t be confident that technicians have undergone screening or received the training necessary for the job.

Take a Look at the Basics

There are many other factors that should be taken into consideration when selecting a provider, including their licensing, location, and the experience they have with your preferred roofing system. You may also want to request a bank reference or review the provider’s Dun & Bradstreet report to get a clearer picture of the provider’s finances.

It isn’t always easy to get a handle on roofing costs. However, if you have the right questions and know what to focus on, you’ll be able to make smart decisions that will help you control your spending and keep your roof in great shape. With the right provider and proactive roof maintenance, you’ll be able to avoid issues going forward.

Keep Your Roof Intact With Regular Inspections

Experienced Commercial Roofing Services

When it comes to the quality of your roof or even the overall life, regular inspections will be a life saver to your roof. Your hard-earned personal and business belongings require the continued maintenance of your building’s roof. So, don’t forget that some form of prevention no matter how small will save you quite the expensive and tragic failure within the future.

In order to get the process done, you’ll need to get the expert advice of a professional within the roofing industry to address any and all of your concerns. Additionally, the contractor will aid as you seek to determine how much of a life your roof still has as well as a maintenance plan to move forward.

So, when it comes to hiring a professional, you’ll need to keep the following in mind:

  • Be sure to seek well known professionals who take pride in their work.
  • Having more than one estimate is never a bad thing.
  • You may also want to acquire references from other buildings in your area that were worked on by the contractor that you are interested in. Don’t be too shy in asking to see proof of their insurance certificate and inquire if they have worker’s insurance.
  • Check with the Better Business Bureau for open complaints lodged against your potential contractor.
  • Examine and make sure that the provided estimate is specific to the job at hand as well as for disposal of unwanted or old material after completion. If you’re having a new roof put in, do some additional checks to ensure that the decking doesn’t have any damaged material.
  • Be sure to ask for a written warranty for all the work that was done as well as for future repair and inspection. And be sure to keep all information secured should you need it again.

In addition to all the we’ve mentioned, here are some more tips that you should keep in mind:

  • Any conducted inspection should be followed with a repair plan on any issues which were found.
  • After any storm, be sure to have your roof inspected for damages since heavy winds compromise the integrity of your roof. Keep in mind that even though your roof seems to have survived, there can still be minor issues which can cause failure in another event.
    Have your contractor recheck areas that were previously repaired to ensure that they are still intact.
  • Ensure that leaves and others objects on top of your roof is removed since they can cause a build up of moisture. Moisture goes on to cause deterioration. And if you live in a dry area, dry material can start fires.
  • Keep tree branches at least six feet away from your roof to prevent damage and scraping. Don’t forget to check your gutters and clear them out.
  • If you live in an area with heavy winds, be sure that your gutter as well as your downspout is properly secured to prevent uplifting and damage to your property as well as others around. When your contractor is conducting any inspections, be sure to mentions any vents in and around. Be sure that they are properly sealed and you can use flashing cement in the case of any visible openings. However, you may need to replace any form of flashing once it has been damaged or deteriorated if your vents can move back in place.
  • If you often face storms with big hail stones, be sure to give your insurance company a call to have your roofing structure properly inspected even in the case of no visible damage.
