Not many people relish the idea of going to the dentist…for lots of reasons. But most of us make ourselves go every six months to a year for our regular cleanings and preventative maintenance. We all know that taking care of our teeth proactively will make our teeth last longer. Makes sense. The same holds true for your roof. You can put a brand new roof on your building today, but if you want to make it last…if you want to protect your investment…then regular TLC is needed. Studies show that depending on a number of factors, performing routine preventative maintenance can up to double the life expectancy of a roof. Yowzer! That’s time and money well spent, since replacement costs can be significant. And since your roof protects all of the assets housed within, you’re really protecting a whole lot more than just your roof. Just something to chew on.
