2022 rings in after a long 2021. We’ve all been in the front row for a year of twists and turns to get where we are today. So much has been put on the back burner in order to address more pressing issues but now with the new year, it’s time to set a resolution to get back to basics. It’s time to focus on roof maintenance.
What does roof maintenance look like?
There’s a myth that roof maintenance simply requires a ladder, hammer, and someone to get up on the roof to check it out. These days, there’s so much more that goes into these complex systems that requires professional experience to catch discrepancies. Big things like missing tiles or puddling are easy to see but the little things that go unnoticed often cause the costliest fixes. It’s important to look out for these and to catch them fast before they become a problem.
Since timing is so imperative, we at Kodiak Roofing have developed a roof maintenance program to help ensure your roof is taken care of. Based on your commercial roof and its needs, we make a plan for inspections and repairs. Each visit comes with:
- Complete assessment of roof
- Inspect and clean drains of debris, re-secure drain fasteners if necessary. If drains are blocked below the roof line, the client will be advised
- Inspect all flashings at all penetrations and curbs, including pipes and skylights
- Inspect seams in the roof field and expansion joints
- Re-secure loose sheet metal roof flashings and reseal cracked or missing caulk joints
- Advise the client of any repairs exceeding the scope of this agreement
- Copy of Field Report or Formal Assessment with photographs to client
- And more!
Why does maintenance matter?
This is a question we get asked a lot. Many building owners look for a one-and-done solution and hope for the best in the long run. However, in order to extend the longevity of your roof, it’s better to take a preventative route instead of an easy fix. Not only does this save money in the long run, it also raises an owner’s confidence that their roof will continue to shelter their investments.
