Did you know that having a regularly scheduled program for roof maintenance can extend the life of your roof? That is because the life of your roof is directly related to how often your roof is inspected and how quickly small problems are identified and repaired.

Your roof is a major investment and once you have a roof system in place, there is nothing more important to ensuring the long-term performance of that roof than a program of regular inspections and proper maintenance. As many as 35% of all roofs do not reach their life expectancy.

So what causes a roof to fail?

  • 47% is due to poor workmanship
  • 16% is due to poor design
  • 9% each is due to faulty materials and weathering
  • 8% each is due to trapped moisture or mechanical damage
  • 3% is due to roof traffic

 

It has been found that having your roof inspected twice a year with any needed repairs can help it last as much as 50% longer than a roof that is only looked at when there is a leak. Having documented maintenance provides you with a written history of your roof and its repairs. It can help you create a budget and a plan for your future roof needs.

A roof maintenance plan not only extends the life expectancy of your roofing system, it can minimize your roof’s life cycle costs by deferring costly roof replacements until their time.

Protect all of your roof warranties, materials, labor, and workmanship by regularly having a Quality Roofing professional inspect and maintain your roof.
