Weather, aging, sunlight, wind, expansion and contraction are just a few of the elements that can affect your roofing system. Annual inspections and preventative maintenance of your roofing system can reduce costly repairs and help your roofing system reach the end of its projected life cycle.
Most roofing system manufacturers require annual inspections and documentation to keep their warranties valid. Additionally, preventative maintenance programs are tax-deductible.
Industry studies have shown that owners who utilized preventative maintenance programs extended the service life of their roofing systems an average of 8 years. A 42-year study demonstrated that owners utilizing a preventative maintenance program spent approximately 67% less than owners who failed to invest in a preventative maintenance program.
