How To Create Your Roof Care Plan

Commercial roof care should be a concern for all building owners because it’s a major key to comfort and safety. Part of your budget should include routine roof inspections to ensure durability and low maintenance. Since every roof is unique, it helps cut costs to establish a relationship with a roofing contractor so they can learn your roof.

Developing an effective roof care budget can be achieved through Damschroder’s Life Cycle Cost Analysis. Here are important factors to consider to shape your budget planning for roof care.

Roof Evaluation

Damschroder offers various innovative commercial roofing solutions for you to consider. We are based in Fremont, Ohio but serve the entire state. By conducting a professional roof evaluation, we can help you determine the most economical and quality solutions for your facility. We can help you estimate costs for maintenance and repairs.

We also give estimates on how much life is left in your roof before new coatings or a reroof is needed. The life expectancy of roofs varies based on how they are maintained, as well as quality of service and environmental factors. It’s best to invest in a durable solution to reduce risks of leaks and other damage.

Our friendly experts will give you an objective evaluation so you can clearly plan for future roofing costs. The faster you take care of problems such as leaks, the more money you’ll save in the future. Leaks can spread and cause excessive damage, but when caught early they can be repaired at low costs.

Roof Replacement

A roof replacement involves removing your existing roof covering the deck. From there, we install insulation board to meet Ohio state code. Then the new roofing system is installed by our well trained specialists. A reroof is the installation of the new roofing system without tearing off the existing system.

Knowing the health of your roof at all times is one of the keys to avoiding a surprise roof replacement. But at some point all roofs need to be replaced, since materials eventually wear out and building codes change over time. If you have a very old roof with lots of leaks, then a roof replacement is often the more economical and safer solution.

Although a roof replacement will cost much more than repairs, it can also be the best long-term budgeting solution for peace of mind. Using quality materials installed by certified roofing experts is a reliable way to ensure longevity. As long as you get the roof checked once a year, you can plan to keep maintenance costs relatively low for the long term.

Preventive Maintenance

Annual preventative maintenance could allow you to cut your repair costs in half each year. By taking a proactive approach and spending a little more in the beginning, repairs can prevent future costs and emergencies. Ultimately, preventive maintenance is an integral part of budgeting because it can lead to substantial savings over time.

An effective way for Fremont, Ohio companies to get started on a roofing maintenance project is to make a service request with Damschroder. Describe the damage of your roof and upload an image of it. We can then initiate the process of Life Cycle Cost Analysis, so you know your options for costs and ensuring roof safety for your workers.

Life Cycle Cost Analysis

During our Life Cycle Cost Analysis, we meet with the customer. The analysis begins with our review of your roof plan, such as a 5 or 10 year plan. Then we walk the roofs and evaluate them and document what is needed to keep the building dry until a new roof is installed. This analysis is valuable for both roof evaluation and preventive maintenance.

The general lifespan of a commercial roof is anywhere from 10 to 40 years… In other words, it might only last a decade at best if you neglect it completely. On the other hand, it could last up to 40 years if you have it inspected routinely.

Weather is a major factor of durability, but it’s the one variable only nature controls. You, however, can control all the other factors.

The Life Cycle Cost Analysis will give you clarity on what your roofing costs will be for potentially several years. The more predictable your roofing budget it is, the more you’ll be able to plan for other expenses. Protecting your commercial roof is an essential responsibility to protect your business, building occupants, and your equipment. Damschroder’s Life Cycle Cost Analysis is a useful process for arriving at a sensible roofing budget.
