WHY DO I NEED A MAINTENANCE PLAN IF I HAVE A WARRANTY?
Why do you need both? In short, warranties don’t make your roof last longer.
As the person in charge of your site, it’s your responsibility to maintain your roofing system. Failure to have your roof regularly inspected, cleaned and having minor repairs performed, could void your warranty when a leak comes through.
An average roof warranty requires at least one roof inspection to be performed a year by an authorised contractor. During the yearly inspection, the inspector will check for not only existing problems, but areas that could turn into potential problems in the future. This then allows repairs to be made before the problem grows and becomes more costly.
A good maintenance plan will clean your gutters, mend your flashings and perform minor repairs for the cost of the program. Having a service team visit your roof regularly not only gives you peace of mind, but it expands your roof’s lifespan and keeps you within your warranty guidelines.
What Do Inspections Involve?
Inspections are to clean the roof system of natural debris, clear all gutters and waterways, and assess vulnerable points in the roof system to ensure that no degradation can leak in the future.
There are three main types of maintenance contract options we offer:
Annual, auto renew one visit contract that requires the contractors to visit the facility once a year for gutter and drain cleaning along with a visual inspection and report.
Annual, auto renew twice a year visit contract that requires gutter and drains cleaning, debris removal, along with a visual inspection, small general repairs, and a report.
Annual, auto renew three times a year visit contract that requires gutter and drains cleaning, debris removal, along with a visual inspection, small general repairs, and a full inspection report on the third visit.
