Like most major investments, the performance of your commercial roof depends on proper maintenance. Careful maintenance of your new commercial roof will identify issues before they become major problems. While you may incur some short-term costs to maintain your roof, investing in ongoing maintenance now will provide significant cost savings and add years to the life of your new roof. By conducting maintenance at regular intervals, you can have confidence that you are protecting all of your valuable assets inside the building.
Still, many commercial building owners are unsure of whom to call should a problem arise. After all, when you undertake the substantial expense of installing a new roof, you would like it to last throughout the warranty period—typically 20 years or more.

Four Warning Signs of Commercial Roof Damage
Commercial and Industrial Roof Maintenance Frequently Asked Questions
- What is the value of an annual preventive maintenance and repair maintenance contract?
- What is the difference between maintenance agreements and warranties?
- What should I look for in a maintenance crew?
Professional roofing contractors, designers and manufacturers all agree that an annual roof system inspection, including necessary wear and tear repairs, will prolong the life of your commercial or industrial building’s roof. An annual maintenance and repair program will save your company thousands of dollars and greatly lessen the chances of a devastating roof catastrophe.
When you have an annual commercial roof maintenance agreement from your professional roofer, you don’t have to worry about remembering to call for your inspections—it’s all on us. We’ll schedule the inspections ahead of time, always letting you know when the inspections will take place at your convenience.
What is the difference between maintenance agreements and warranties?
When we issue a warranty, it comes directly from the manufacturer. Once a new roof is installed, the manufacturer sends a representative out to the site to conduct a full inspection. If anything needs to be adjusted, the professional roofing contractor does it at that time. Your repairs should be made at no cost to you. (The only exception would be damage due to outside forces, such as a tree limb puncturing a membrane, or damage caused by an HVAC crew. Still, your roofer can make the repairs.)
Manufacturer warranties require periodic maintenance with repairs at the owner’s expense to maintain the warranty. If the manufacturer receives a call about a problem with the roof, their first call will be to your commercial roofer to find out if your company has been conducting regular maintenance.
