Maintain

Thinking of doing some preventive maintenance on your roof? That is normally the best way to deal with an issue, stop it from happening.

Roof life is directly related to how often it is inspected and how quickly small problems are identified & repaired. Periodic maintenance is vital to a long & healthy roof life!

The federal government, the largest building owner in the United States, found their average roof lasted less than 5 years before leakage and less than 8 years before replacement.

NRCA study showed that 35 percent of all roofs do not reach their life expectancy. Of the causes identified with premature roof failure 47% is due to poor workmanship, 16% to poor design, 9% each to faulty materials and weathering, 8% each to trapped moisture or mechanical damage and 3% to roof traffic.

If you don’t have a formalized inspection & maintenance program to identify and repair roof problems, how long do you think your roof will last?

Affordable Roofing’s goal is to educate owners and building managers to the fact that programmed roof maintenance makes economic sense. A roof inspected semi-annually can last as much as 50% longer than one that is visited only when there is a leak.
