The benefits of maintenance

Most experienced building owners and facility managers agree maintaining buildings' components and systems is necessary to optimize and extend buildings' functional lives. However, in some instances carrying out proper roof system maintenance is overlooked.

To maximize roof system life, NRCA recommends preventative maintenance for roof systems; NRCA also provides sources for additional useful information regarding roof system maintenance and repairs.

Preventative maintenance

Preventative maintenance is intended to enable building owners and facility managers to proactively identify and implement solutions to roof system problems before problems become more widespread. In most instances, if roofing-related problems are identified early and properly repaired, the problem's extent and cost of necessary repairs will be significantly less than if the problem were left unattended.
