Did you know that 99% of all roof leaks occur at transitions or penetration points? These are places where the roof meets a wall or an adjacent roof, and where equipment such as air conditioning units, vents, railings, drains, and even satellite stands are secured.
All of these together make potential trouble spots all over your roof. Our preventive maintenance programs strengthen those weak areas. As a result, we can help your roof meet and even exceed its designed life. Here are just a few of our benefits:
- Preventative maintenance can be done at a fraction of the cost of re-roofing.
- The challenges posed by hurricanes in Florida have taught many business owners that a premature re-roof can be costly and easily avoided.
- In a condominium, special assessments for a new roof can be a hardship for residents. Preventative Maintenance can eliminate this challenge and keep you within a normal roofing budget.
- I.R.S. rules state that maintenance expenses are considered operating expenses and are therefore deductable in the year they occur. This can create a significant tax savings over the standard multi-year amortization schedule for repairs. Consult your tax professional for details.
Average life of roof replacement vs. restoration
When properly maintained, restoration systems can be reinstalled directly over the previous system multiple times and offer extended warranties.
