Building owners don’t usually spend a lot of time on the roof of their property, and even if owners or managers inspect their roof regularly, most of the roofing issues we find are under the surface, and difficult to catch if you don’t know what to look for. That’s why we recommend semi-annual maintenance checkups for every roof we service. It may be surprising to some owners, but semi-annual roofing inspections can help you maintain the health of your entire structure, and prevent some major problems. Here’s why:
1. Semi-Annual Roof Inspections Stop Issues Before They Start
Many, if not most of our emergency calls are for roofing issues that have been festering for a long time undiagnosed, culminating in a big problem for building owners. This includes things like leaks and condensation. With regular maintenance, our team is able to fix small issues before they become big problems. Things like patches and sealants are routine and much easier to do before problems start.
2. Inspection Allows For You To Create A More Effective Budget
Planning for the financial success of your property is tricky, and knowing what kinds of repairs your roof will need in the future can be a crucial part of that. Our experienced teams of experts are able to tell you how much to budget for repairs that may be necessary down the line based on the current condition of your structure, so there are no surprises in the future.
3. Semi-Annual Inspections May Help With Your Insurance Claims
Inspections help negate any negligence on your part if there is a serious issue that occurs with your roofing system. With regular maintenance, you can be sure that all roofing systems are up to code and all issues are taken care of before they become larger issues. Diagnosing regular problems can help with your insurance rates for your structure, and also aid in your claim if an unexpected problem does occur with your roof. Our inspections provide you with detailed reports and recommendations, making it easier to file claims when necessary.
4. Inspections Increase The Life-Span of Your Roof
When damage is accurately assessed and repaired, your roof remains healthy for much longer. A full roof replacement is a major expense, and because the roof isn’t often visited on any building, it can be easily forgotten when it’s working well. Keep the health of your roof up to date so you don’t have to spend even more money on repairs in the future.
5.Inspections Tackle Water Damage Issues Fast
Every roof has some water, especially after it rains, but it can be difficult to assess what kind of water is normal, and what kind of water will damage your roofing membrane. Semi-annual inspections by our trained experts allow us to assess and make recommendations for your roof based on previous inspections because changes are meticulously tracked by a trained eye.
