The best way for a building owner to ensure satisfactory post-installation roof performance is to have a formal, long-term maintenance agreement with a professional roofing contractor. Maintenance programs typically offer the following advantages:
- A maintenance program is proactive rather than reactive. It can help to identify problems at their early stages, while they can be corrected and before they become catastrophes
- Regular maintenance can reveal and address sources and causes of leaks before they occur. Too many owners have their roofs examined only after a roof leak occurs.
- A maintenance program allows for a planned, organized approach to the management of a roof asset — and allows for responsible, timely preparation of long-term capital expenditures
- Response time to address leakage problems is greatly improved. Warranty repairs, on the other hand, can take time to be processed — while the problem remains unresolved.
Building owners should take care in selecting the roofing contractor who will perform the maintenance work. Additional information is available from NRCA or from this NRCA-member professional roofing contractor.
