Roof Maintenance Programs

The cost of repairing and replacing your commercial roof can be extremely costly, but there is a way to prevent spending so much. Roof maintenance can help you avoid having to spend a lot of money repairing or replacing your roof. It helps to keep your commercial roofing from sustaining irreparable damage in the future. It is the best strategy for keeping your roof in good condition.

Establishing an inspection plan is essential if you want to extend the life of your commercial roofing system. To have a roof maintenance program, you should consult your consultant first. It is advisable to have them inspect the roof first before proceeding to have a proper maintenance plan.

Roof Maintenance Programs

Having a regular roof maintenance program in place is an important step in keeping your roof in good condition. When your roof is in good condition, you won't have to repair it as frequently or replace it entirely. 

You should have a proper inspection plan in place that will assist you in detecting problems and preventing premature failure and future repairs. 

Before developing a maintenance program, you should consider the following steps:

Determine the risk level

The risk level of your roof is influenced by your environment’s weather. Inspections should be carried out more frequently in areas prone to severe weather. Weather conditions like hurricanes, strong winds, hailstorms, heat, and prolonged sun exposure can all have a negative impact on your roof. 

Knowing your roof's risk level should help you determine how frequently you should have inspections and maintenance performed.

Have an inspection plan

You should have a standard roof maintenance plan that you follow. After major weather or construction events, you can have your roof inspected. This allows you to detect any problems before they worsen. You should also begin by inspecting the walls, as some issues may be hidden there.

Schedule regular inspections

Depending on the age and status of your roof, you should have a roof maintenance program as regularly as possible. At least twice a year, a maintenance team should come. You are also expected to invite your team whenever you suspect an issue, even if it is outside of your regular schedule. 

This is why, when you need an inspection or maintenance, you can count on NE roofing contractors to be there. We assist you in creating a maintenance schedule and respond to any concerns you may have. Our number one priority is to provide you with the best possible service.

A consistent, reliable, and true to their word roofing contractor will do things the same high quality way every time. If a roofing company you're consulting has no predictable process, they also have no predictable results. In other words, the return on your investment with them will be a gamble. At True Roofing, our roofing process is the same whether it's for a minor roof repair or a major roof replacement. Our results are high quality, reliable, predictable, repeatable. 


The Inspection

The inspection is the first step many contractors skimp on. That's a mistake that can cost both you as the customer and the roofer dearly. That doesn't mean it has to take a long time, however. An inspection by an experienced and highly qualified roofing veteran can be conducted in 30-60 minutes and again, they will follow a set process with a checklist to ensure complete assessment of the situation. If a roofer is casual about assessing your roof and flippant about quoting you thousands of dollars for repairs or installation, we suggest you move on to another company. The inspection sets the ground work for everything else.


Working Out The Details

The quoting, discussion of budgetary concerns, payment options such as financing, and finally scheduling. If you have any special notes or concerns, if you have specific scheduling, if you want a certain type of shingle, custom metal roof, tile roof, etc., we will discuss all these details with you, answer every possible question you have, and ensure you're ready to move on. True Roofing will never use high pressure sales tactics, nor will we ever need to. You will see the value upfront, and we do everything possible to make our services as affordable as possible to everyone at all budget levels. No high pressure sales, ever.


Doing it Right the First Time

The last step is to actually get out there and do the work. Whether it's a minor repair, major repair, small installation, major replacement, your roofing crew will treat it with the same level of attention that we treat all our projects. Armed with the detailed inspection notes and knowing exactly what needs to be done, prepared with the schedule and time frames, and any special notes & concerns you may have, our crew can proceed along the previously agreed on plan and execute it flawlessly. The purpose of the process is to standardize results, and we carry that mindset into our work on the roof as well. Do it once, do it right.

Importance of Roof Maintenance  

Roof maintenance, as previously mentioned, aids in identifying potential problems and resolving them before they become irreparable. This extends the life of your roof and keeps it in good condition. It is easier to keep your warranty valid if you perform regular maintenance. After all, some damages are not covered by your warranty. 

Furthermore, maintenance is far less expensive than having to repair or replace a roof. By having your roof inspected regularly, you can save a lot of money and time.

A roof maintenance program should aim to:

  • Keep the roof clean and debris-free
  • Make sure your drainage systems are clear and functional
  • Limit penetrations of the roof
  • Repair areas with standing water
  • Restrict roof access to authorized personnel only
  • Train maintenance personnel on ongoing maintenance needs
  • Regularly, inspect sloped roofs with overhangs for signs of ice dams and insulate the attic as needed
  • Identify potential problems
  • Clear snow

Keep a record of each inspection to ensure that problem areas are properly maintained, preventing more damage to your roof.

Roof Maintenance Cost

Maintenance is less expensive than repair and replacement. The cost of your regular maintenance is determined by several factors:

  • The state of your roof 
  • Roof layout - roofs with multiple levels or different areas to get more expensive 
  • Roof access - the more difficult it is to gain access to your roof, the higher the maintenance cost
  • The area of the roof

On average, the cost would be between $0.03 and $0.04 per square foot. In addition, there would be a $0.75 per mile fuel charge. If there are any extra costs as a result of the factors listed above, your contractor should notify you. 

NE roofing contractors strive to provide the best roofing service at the most reasonable price. We provide excellent service while keeping your budget in mind. During the inspection, we work within your budget while providing excellent service.

Roof Maintenance Schedule

The timing of your roof maintenance should be determined by your environment as well as the condition of your roof. If you live in an area with harsh weather, you should have a more frequent inspection and maintenance check. Also, the more activity on the roof, the more frequently it must be inspected. Foot traffic, access to the roof, and a lot of weight and pressure on the roof all have an impact on the condition of your roof. 

Maintenance should be performed every six months if the weather is normal and there is little activity on the roof. However, you should still consult with your contractor before making a decision. 

Many owners put off maintenance because they believe it is unimportant or that it is too expensive. The cost of commercial roof maintenance is not expensive if you plan ahead of time and schedule a check at least once a year.

You can also pay your contractor in advance so that you don't have to worry about payment until the following year.


Roof maintenance is the best option if you want to save money while also extending the life of your roof. The reason for this is that you will avoid damages that may necessitate the replacement of the entire roof in the future. Repairing and replacing after severe damage will cost a significant amount more than regular maintenance. 

In most cases, you can hire the same contractor who installed your roof to maintain it. If you must hire someone else, make sure it is someone you trust. Having someone who gets it right the first time and does an excellent job can save you a lot of stress in the future.

You should also look for someone who can work within your budget, stay on schedule, and deliver a long-lasting product. With all of this, you are assured of a long-lasting roofing system and significant cost savings.
