Protect Your Investment in Edmonton with Regular Flat Roof Maintenance
A new roof is one of the biggest investments you’ll make in maintaining your building, so it only makes sense to protect it. How can a Cozifoam Roof Maintenance Agreement help you do that?
Why Does My Roof Need Maintenance?
People sometimes think that as long as their roof doesn’t leak, there’s no need for roof maintenance. Nothing could be further from the truth! Every roof is constantly under attack from weather extremes, dirt and debris accumulation, third party damage, structural movement and even chemicals in the atmosphere. Regular maintenance is needed to detect problems when they can still be corrected easily and inexpensively.
What Can Damage My Roof?
Routine roof maintenance will correct minor problems before they escalate into major problems that may result in leakage and expensive water damage.
- Dirt and debris can accumulate on a low-slope roof, blocking drains, impeding water drainage, and hosting plant growth. We’ve often found trees growing on poorly maintained roofs we’ve replaced! All these conditions hasten the degradation of your roofing system and shorten its lifespan. Regular cleaning and maintenance extends roof life and reduces repair costs.
- Third party damage can result from tradesmen servicing other building systems, passersby throwing debris on the roof, or even animals.
- Extreme weather conditions can damage stacks, flashings, rooftop equipment or even the roofing system itself. When promptly detected, such damage can usually be repaired quickly and inexpensively.
How Much Money Can a Roof Maintenance Agreement Save Me?
Firestone Building Products and the Roofing Industry Alliance for Progress have done long-term studies that reveal building owners who have roof maintenance contracts extend their roof’s lifespan by as much as 61%, reducing their lifetime roof cost by 56%!
For example*, imagine 2 identical 20,000 sq. ft. buildings with identical new roofing systems, costing $140,000 in total. If these roofs receive regular maintenance, the studies found these roofs could last 21 years. Without regular inspections, these same roofs lasted only about 11 years before needing to be replaced, costing the owner another $140,000 (and that’s without inflation!).
The Benefits of Roof Maintenance
The benefits of roof maintenance are clear. The owner of the well-maintained roof saves at least $118,000 on his building maintenance costs! If you add to the equation the inconvenience of leaks and the cost of drywall / ceiling repairs as well as emergency leak repairs, the cost of not properly maintaining your roof is enormous!
What Will a Cozifoam Roof Maintenance Agreement Cost?
