Do you have a maintenance agreement for your commercial flat roof? If you don’t, take a moment to consider getting one. Getting routine maintenance from an experienced commercial flat roof contractor will keep the roof in good condition and pay off in the long run.
What Is Covered in a Maintenance Agreement?
Vanguard’s maintenance plans start with a Roof Condition Assessment. An experienced roofer does a thorough inspection of the parapet walls, drains, gutters, scuppers, roof membrane, flashing, and penetration details. This assessment happens two times a year, once before winter comes and once after it’s gone.
The maintenance agreement calls for making proactive repairs and performing preventative maintenance to keep your roof in good condition. It covers all maintenance required for warranty compliance.
If the roof developed a leak or has another problem, it’s a reactive repair. The roofer will tell you about it, so you can prioritize the work needed to make repairs. He also highlights any defects found in the roof structure, which would require more extensive work to correct.
The roofer keeps a full history of the roof inspections and maintenance. This history is important if you need warranty work done.
The Benefits of a Commercial Flat Roof Maintenance Agreement
With a maintenance agreement in place for your flat roof, you will reap the benefits.
- A qualified roofer inspects the roof twice a year. A trained eye can spot small problems and get them fixed before they become critical. This proactive maintenance ensures the roof lasts as long as possible.
- Repairing minor problems quickly avoids damage to the building below and prevents downtime due to leaks. This saves time and money for the business.
- Many manufacturer warranties require routine maintenance. If the maintenance isn’t done, it can void the warranty. A maintenance agreement helps keep the roof in compliance.
- A maintenance agreement protects your roofing investment and the building’s contents.
- It will save you a lot of money in the long run, as it postpones the need to replace the roof by making it last longer.
