The key to getting the most out of your commercial roofing is adhering to a maintenance routine. More than a few property owners and managers tend to forget how important roofing maintenance is, some of them falling into the “out of sight, out of mind” trap. The following are some of the things you should keep in mind about roofing maintenance:
- It Maximizes the Roof’s Lifespan – A long-lasting roof means more time between replacements, which can have a positive impact on your property’s long-term costs. A commercial roof is exposed to considerably more stress compared to its residential counterparts. The damage caused by continued exposure to high winds, ultraviolet rays, and airborne debris can shorten a roof’s life and lead to a premature roof replacement. Sticking to a scheduled maintenance routine can help you get the fullest extent of your roof’s life span – perhaps even extend it.
- It Helps Minimize Business Disruption – If your highrise is housing several businesses, an unattended roof leak can cost several days’ worth of revenue. Keeping a close eye on the condition of your commercial roofing, as well as addressing potential problems in a timely manner, will cost you less. But more importantly, it guarantees business continuity by preventing disruptions from happening in the first place.
- It Helps Prevent Loss of Assets –
- It Helps Increase Your Property Value – No tenant would want to occupy office space in a building with a leaky roof. In a retail setting, leaks can get into the merchandise – which can be problematic if you’re selling food or paper products – and adds to the risk of personal injury to customers. On the other hand, if your building is reputed to be well-maintained and leak-free, it can increase property value and command better rental costs.
