For many business owners, the roof tends to be that part of the property where the adage “out of sight, out of mind” applies. The truth, however, should be far from that. Regular maintenance of your roof is important as it’s more than just for looks – the roof protects your entire place of business.
In this article, Lone-Star Roof Systems discusses why the saying “off the top of your head” should actually be more pertinent to your commercial roofing.
Regular Maintenance Protects Your Investment
What is in your building is worth more than the amount you’ll have to pay to keep your roof regularly maintained. Just imagine the damage and losses when a leak damages your physical goods or when water drips on your computer or server and you end up losing data vital to your business. Keep your roof well-maintained to avoid this kind of nightmare.
Regular Maintenance Extends the Roof’s Life Span
Keeping your roofing system well-maintained and in good condition extends its life span and, similarly, the time between repair work. Commercial roofs generally have a life span of at least 20 years, but the expected lifetime is really just 10-15 years without proper maintenance. If you see yourself occupying your property for longer than 15 years, regular maintenance can help you save money on expensive replacements.
Regular Maintenance Prevents Structural Damage
Keeping your roof well-maintained reduces the risk of rust and rotten wood. Either can compromise your property’s structural integrity, and may end up costing more than the estimated amount for roof maintenance.
