The first choice in roofing is usually repair, based on its relatively low cost. At what point, however, is such a measure uneconomical? Once it has been decided that a particular roof is beyond repair, then re-cover, retrofit, and replacement options arise.
Most building owners think about their roof only when there’s a problem—usually a leak. By that time, water has already caused damage to valuable merchandise, slowed production, and/or caused a slip-and-fall accident. Once the damage is done, all the building owner can do is call a roofing contractor and get the roof repaired.
Though no roof is maintenance free, taking these four steps can reduce life-cycle costs.
