Whether you own or manage 1 structure or 1,000, understanding and maintaining your roofing systems are a key part to asset management.

Believe it or not, most owners/managers do not know what type of roofing systems they have on their buildings, what type and thickness of insulation they have or even the easiest way to access the roof on a particular building. It is difficult to manage the roofing life cycle if you don’t even know what roofing system you have or what your expectation for that system is. Maintaining an up-to-date inventory of all buildings and their roofing systems is vital in maintaining one’s roofing asset.
When was your roofing system installed? When was the last time your roof was serviced? When does your roofing warranty expire? If you don’t know the answers to these questions, you are not alone. Likely you have more pressing issues to think about. However, it doesn’t make these questions any less important, especially in times when roofing system issues are occurring. Proper record keeping allows for ease of access to this information in addition to all other information related to the installation and maintenance of your roofing systems.
One of the biggest mistakes made by the recipient of a new roofing system is the lack of maintenance performed after the initial installation. Almost all manufacturers’ warranties call for a regular maintenance plan to keep the warranty effective and up-to-date. Taking that a step further, a preventive maintenance program not only minimize leaks, it will keep the roofing insulation dry and intact during the life of the roof increasing the odds that the insulation can be “re-used” during the next installation. This not only reduces the cost of the 2nd installation (almost 30-40%), it also keeps materials out of the landfills resulting in a net positive environmental impact.At Whitco Roofing we use top rate preventive maintenance strategies tailored to your roof.
