Roofing contractor reviewing roof asset management program.

Roof asset management is a way to proactively protect your roof system by identifying and taking corrective action before problems become bigger and more costly during the life cycle of your roof. But, there’s more to roof asset management than just a maintenance program. It’s a trust-built relationship between you and your roofing contractor to keep the quality of what’s inside of your building intact while keeping track of the equipment on the outside of it, also known as the building envelope.

Summer maintenance on a commercial HVAC system.

When caring for your commercial roof, maintenance schedules suggest that you have a full roof inspection twice a year as part of your roof’s preventive maintenance. The best times are before winter and before summer. On most commercial buildings the HVAC equipment is mounted on the roof, so it’s prudent to have the HVAC system inspected during the same time. With temperatures potentially rising above 90-100 degrees, it’s necessary to have a smooth-running HVAC system in the summer for airflow, ventilation and for cooling your workspace.

Roofing workers completing a roof replacement.

Repairing a roof essentially entails fixing or patching a smaller issue while it’s still performing at a high quality level. However, if the issue is a much larger problem, you’re essentially asking a roofing contractor to put a bandaid on your home’s roof. And bandaids wear off over time (as well as void your warranty in some cases). Let’s say you have a small hole in your roof. A commercial roof repair might be the right fix for the job. But what if the hole or loose shingle in your roof has been there for several years? This means that any sort of debris, water, and mold could have found its way into the structure of the roof. Cost can add up quickly by not being aware or knowing the differences between repairs, restoration or replacement.
