The days are getting shorter, the weather is colder, winter is here–and December is just a few days away! That means it’s time to be thinking about budgeting your preventative maintenance program for your commercial building’s roof for 2024.

And now is the perfect time to get started! By establishing a regular maintenance schedule now, you can help ensure that your roof stays in good condition all year long.

Why Now?

There are a few reasons why December is the perfect time to set up your preventative maintenance program.

We start to experience our first significant snow and ice buildup in December. Sure, Minnesota still gets snowfall well into March – sometimes a lot! But once we have a good thaw, our crews are ready to get on your roof and inspect its condition.

Spring is also the time we see a lot of leaks as ice and snow-pack melt and the melted water finds its way into your building. By getting ahead of things now, you’ll be confident that crews are ready to inspect your roof at the first signs of Spring – helping ensure that your roof is prepared for Spring and Summer rain.

Don’t Forget to Budget for Commercial Roof Maintenance

Many facilities and property managers are finalizing their OPEX budgets in December. By setting up your preventative maintenance program now, you can ensure it’s included in your budget for the year. Your pricing will be locked in.

Establishing a preventative maintenance plan in December will give you a jump on everyone who waits until Spring flowers start to bloom. Being one of the first in line means you’ll get more value from your contract.

Finally, December is a great time to get signed up for a preventative maintenance program, as you have less going on. After the first of the year, when the pace gets back to normal, you’ll have more on your mind and could easily forget about it. When your roof leaks in mid-March, you’ll be at the end of the line for our service schedule.

What are the advantages of a preventative maintenance program for your building’s roof?

Here are just a few of the benefits of having a preventative maintenance program in place:

Reduced Repair Costs

A well-maintained roof lasts longer and requires fewer repairs. This can save you money in the long run.

Increased Property Value

A good roof is an important part of any commercial building. By keeping your roof in good condition, you can help increase the value of your property. Just like a well-maintained car, your commercial building’s value increases when you can provide a history of maintenance and inspections.

Reduced Liability

If a problem with your roof leads to water damage or other problems, you could be held liable for the damage it causes. A preventative maintenance program can help minimize the risk of this happening.

Expense Management

By having a preventative maintenance contract in place, you spread the cost of commercial roof maintenance out over time. You’ll always know your monthly cost to keep your roof in tip-top condition.

Add Life To Your Commercial Roof

Having your roof inspected routinely and repairing issues when they are small can add years to the life of your roof. You’ll always know the status of your roof, eliminating guesswork and the need to budget for a major repair.
