AVOID THE COSTS OF REPAIRING YOUR ROOF
Making repairs on you can be extremely expensive. So much so that most large property managers have several employees working under them to help manage the repairs their roof needs from time to time. So, if roof repairs are expensive, you should try to avoid them right?
Take Care of Your Roof to Avoid Costly Repairs
Too many building owners and property managers treat their roof as though it isn’t important once it’s installed. Yes, when it’s up and running it’s a very nice thing and it sort of pushes the roof to the back of your mind. But you should still strive to keep it running in tip-top shape to avoid very costly repairs. Repairs that were once a 3 hour, $400 fix can balloon into a month long project that costs 10x what they originally would have had they been addressed early on in the process.
The roof on your building is important to your operations and important to properly maintain, not only because it accomplishes several key tasks for your building, but also because it is simply expensive to repair or replace. The roof over your head should be a key priority simply because you don’t want to have to replace it.
Choose a System with Minimal Repairs
When you are looking at new roof systems, don’t just consider up-front costs, installation methods, and performance. You should also consider the longevity of the roof. Are you going to have to make repairs to it a couple times a year? Those repairs cost money that should be factored into your decision. Will you have to put a new roof on in 8 years because the one you purchased isn’t very long-lived? That’s a factor too. Your roof can be a nightmare if it’s constantly leaking and failing, so don’t let that happen to you.
The roof on your building is important for many different reasons, one of which is the fact that if you don’t take care of it, it will cost you a huge amount of money to repair or replace. Don’t fall into that trap; pick a good roof from the beginning and make minor repairs when need to avoid the major repairs later.
