While scheduled maintenance by a professional roofing company can add years to the life-cycle of your roof, there are simple tasks that you, as the owner or property manager, can do.
1. Monitor changes in the roof by taking routine photos.
2. Who is the first line of defense if something goes wrong? Be sure that everyone knows who to call the moment something happens? Time is money when it comes to your roof.
3. Foot traffic on a roof can be problematic. Know who’s on your roof and allow only authorized personnel to attend to roof maintenance or repairs.
4. Encourage your tenants or employees to inform you of any problems or leaks they encounter immediately, even if on the outside of the building.
Regular scheduled maintenance by a professional and diligence on the part of owners and property managers can help identify and fix problems before they become major and costly.
