Commercial roof maintenance is of the utmost importance. Whether you own the building, or you manage the facilities, you will want to take a proactive approach. Otherwise, Orlando commercial roofing costs could be an unexpected expense that you will have no choice but to deal with.
Be More Proactive
Unfortunately, most building owners and facility managers are reactive as opposed to proactive. They deal with repairs as they occur as opposed to working to maintain the roof so that there aren’t major repairs to contend with.
It’s a good idea to inspect and repair roofs routinely. By doing so, you will reduce roofing costs and extend the lifespan of the roof considerably. After all, if you can extend the life so that you don’t have to replace the roof anytime in the near future, it’s a great idea.
Our goal at Roof Top Services is to help you with the proactive approach by helping you determine when small repairs need to be made as well as providing you with annual roof inspections.
We offer a variety of analytical tools that can ensure you are learning more about your roof. For example, rather than a basic visual analysis, we can provide membrane testing, infrared scanning, and more. It will provide you with greater accuracy on when and where roofing problems may occur.
Repairing vs. Replacing Your Commercial Roof
Throughout the life of your roof, it is going to experience a significant amount of wear and tear. With being in the roofing industry since 1998, we have seen a lot of issues occur. Weathering and degeneration will take its toll on the roof over time. The current age and condition of your roof will play a part when determining whether a repair needs to be made or if it is better to replace the roof entirely.
Often, a repair is going to be the better solution because it will be a more cost-effective one. Further, several small repairs throughout the year may be able to prevent a major repair later on. For example, if you address some areas of a flat roof where ponding occurs early on, you won’t have to worry about a major problem where your roof collapses under the sheer weight of the ponding as well as the mold and mildew that has occurred.
You will want to keep a close eye on how much you are spending on roof maintenance. If you are continuously making repairs, it may be time to budget for a replacement roof. Having a new roof, particularly when it is maintained properly year after year, may end up saving you a lot of money.
One of the best rules of thumb is to repair your roof so that it survives the original service life expectancy. The moment the repairs start to exceed the cost of a new roof, you will want to start looking at a new commercial roof and this is where we can help.
It’s important to use technology when it comes to maintaining your roof. We can help you to achieve lower costs while being more cost-effective with our procedures. When you have concerns about your roof, we can help. We can send one of our certified sales technicians out to your business in order to provide a full analysis.
