Cozifoam Roof Armor SystemsYour Choice for Low-Slope Roofing
A new roof is one of the biggest investments you’ll make in maintaining your building, so it only makes sense to protect it. To help explain how can a roof maintenance agreement help you do that, here are some answers to commonly asked questions:
Why does my roof need maintenance?
People tend to think that as long as their roof doesn’t leak, there’s no need for roof maintenance. This is not true. Why? Because 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?
- Dirt and debris
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
Third party damage can result from tradesmen servicing other building systems, passersby throwing debris on the roof, or even animals.
- Extreme weather conditions
Extreme weather can damage stacks, flashings, rooftop equipment or even the roofing system itself. When promptly detected, such damage can usually be repaired quickly and inexpensively.
Routine roof maintenance will correct minor problems like these before they escalate into major problems that may result in leakage and expensive water damage.
How much money can a Roof Maintenance Agreement save me?
For example: imagine two 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!)
What are the benefits of roof maintenance?
Long term studies have shown that roof maintenance contracts extend a roof’s lifespan by as much as 61%, reducing their lifetime roof cost by 56%. That’s tens of thousands of dollars!*
What will a Cozifoam Roof Maintenance Agreement Cost Me?
10 cents/ sq ft of roof area, with a minimum of $250 for smaller roofs. A mobilization fee may apply for outlying areas.
What services will a Cozifoam Roof Maintenance Agreement include?
The Cozifoam Roof Maintenance Agreement includes one yearly inspection of your Cozifoam spray foam roofing system, including:
- Checking for and repairing loose flashings
- Checking and cleaning roof drains and scuppers
- Cleaning and removing accumulated debris
- Checking for and repairing third party damage (i.e. damage caused by maintenance technicians (i.e. HVAC), passersby, animals)
- Checking for and repairing damage from extreme weather
- Provide a written report on the condition of the roof to the building owner
- Repair or replacement of damaged areas is limited to 1% of the total roof area per year
- The Maintenance Agreement is renewable on a yearly basis or can be prepaid for the term you desire. A 10% discount applies to prepaid Maintenance Agreements.
Why do I need a Maintenance Agreement if my roof already has a warrant?
Let’s use the analogy of the warranty on a new car. When you purchase a new vehicle, you can get a bumper-to-bumper comprehensive warranty. But will the Warranty cover replacing wiper blades, changing oil, or repairing damage that happens when somebody backs into you in a parking lot? Of course not!
Our Maintenance Agreements protect you against things no warranty can possibly cover: neglect, lack of reasonable maintenance, prompt repair of third party damage, and so on. Our Maintenance Agreements provide you with total peace of mind and protect your investment!
