Advanced Roof Design can design a Preventive Maintenance Program that will fit your individual needs and budget, and that will help extend the life expectancy of your roofing system while saving you money.

The following are issues that can negatively affect your roofing systems:

  • Weather conditions (hail, sun, rain, snow, ice, wind)
  • Poor design, defective materials & poor roof installation
  • Failure to maintain or repair the roof (neglect)
  • Roof top contaminants (oil, grease, fuels, fluids, HVAC discharge)
  • Building & roof movement & expansion
  • Contractor damage (foot traffic)
  • Vandalism
  • Ponding water
  • Clogged drains and scuppers
  • Defective flashings and penetrations

An effective Preventative Maintenance Program should be proactive rather than reactive. Industry statistics show that owners and facility managers who react to problems as they occur pay an average of $.25 per square foot annually for maintenance. Owners and facility managers who have a Preventative Maintenance Program in place, and who inspect and repair proactively before problems occur, spend an average of $.14 per square foot annually. Proactively maintained roofs also have an average lifespan that is 8 years longer than roofs that are reactively repaired.  This saves building owners and facility managers 50% over the life of a 30-year roof when compared to replacing the roof every 15 – 20 years.

Advanced Roof Design Preventative Maintenance Program Includes:

  • Regularly scheduled on-site visual roof inspections
  • Photographs of roof condition for documentation purposes
  • Removal of debris, and cleaning of all waterways, drains, and gutters
  • Removal of sediment buildup on roof systems
  • Repair minor roof deficiency conditions
  • Provide quotes for needed major repairs
