Planned Maintenance for Roofing Systems

Roof problems certainly do not qualify as one of the pleasant experiences of life. Even those of a minor nature can test the limits of patience and produce a great deal of inconvenience and disruption in a building or facility. Major problems, requiring the replacement of large roof areas, can significantly affect a company’s profit and loss picture. The impact on the bottom line can be especially distressing if the roof repairs or replacement are unexpected and hot part of a planned budget.

No matter what the type, roofs have predictable aging patterns and will require repair and eventual replacement. Not always understood, however, is the fact that there are techniques and materials available that will substantially extend the useful service life of a roof system. We will review some of these procedures and survey a few of the product options that can be employed.
