Protect Your Investment: The Vital Importance of Commercial Roof Maintenance

Commercial Roof Maintenance Is a Valuable Investment

As a business owner, few assets impact your overhead more than your commercial building—and few assets impact your commercial building more than your commercial roof. Your commercial roof plays a key role in protecting every aspect of your business from the elements, including your employees, equipment, stock, and more. Because of its importance, commercial roof maintenance is essential for protecting your investment.

At Skyline Contracting, we offer comprehensive commercial roof maintenance as part of our full catalog of commercial roofing services. Throughout the years that we’ve been in business, we’ve too often seen commercial roofs need a replacement long before their expected lifespans simply due to poor maintenance. Here’s why commercial roof maintenance is so critical in protecting your business and your bottom line.

More Cost-Effective Than Reactive Repairs

Commercial roof maintenance is a cost-effective way to keep your roof performing at its best. In particular, it’s much more cost-effective than waiting for problems to appear on your roof before scheduling a repair

While it may seem like your roof can be left alone until problems show up, the reality is that issues like leaks and other damage take a long time to develop. By the time you notice the problem, a leak will have damaged other portions of your building and roof already. This means any repair you schedule at this time will need to both resolve the leak and fix water damage that could now be widespread.

Any comprehensive maintenance package will include regular roof inspections, and these will ensure problems are noticed before they progress further. This will enable you to make proactive, preventative repairs that will be much less costly than attempting to resolve a leak after the fact.

Avoid Insurance Issues

Insurance helps to cover many types of damage to your roof, typically including fires, storm damage, and more. However, few if any insurance policies cover neglect—and if it’s determined that your roof failed due to poor maintenance, you’ll be left paying out of pocket for the repairs.

Investing in ongoing roof maintenance helps to establish that you’re taking care of your roof. During the inspection process, your roofer will make careful documentation of any potential issues. This will provide you with a paper trail to establish a timeline for when new issues emerge, helping to build your case with insurance and potentially avoid denied claims.

Maintain Roof Warranties

Similar to your insurance policy, manufacturer and product warranties on your roof typically won’t apply if your roof fails due to poor maintenance. These warranties are designed to cover your roof in case of defects or other product issues, but they depend on your roof being well-maintained throughout its lifespan. With commercial roof maintenance, you can again ensure your roof is not neglected and maintain your warranty coverage.

Keep Up Property Value

Ongoing roof maintenance will keep your roof in excellent condition and help to extend its lifespan. If you’re looking to sell your building, this will also serve to maintain your property’s value. 

Potential buyers will not want to purchase a commercial building whose roof they expect to replace in just a few years. The better maintained your roof is, the more appealing it will be on the commercial real estate market. Through ongoing maintenance, you can provide a clear picture of the current condition of your commercial roof and the property overall.
