Why commercial roof maintenance is important
As with many things in life, it’s a matter of paying a little bit now to help avoid a more costly bill later. A commercial roof maintenance plan is no different. Having a commercial roof maintenance plan can help keep your building’s roof in top condition as well as bolster your company’s productivity and raise that bottom line.
When to repair vs replace your roof
Whether you decide to do a partial roof repair or replace it can depend on several factors like the size of the area needing repair and existing roofing material. What seems like a simple and cheap repair may not always be either simple or cheap. You may actually end up saving more money in the long run by a full roof replacement.

Frequently Asked Questions About Commercial Roof Maintenance
What is a roof maintenance plan?
A commercial roof maintenance plan is a written agreement between a building owner or manager and a roofing contractor for the care and scheduled maintenance of a commercial building’s roofing system. The goal is to keep the roof in optimal condition and avoid more costly repairs later down the road.
What does commercial roof maintenance include?
An entry-level commercial roof maintenance contract will usually include at the very least an inspection, a thorough cleaning of the drain baskets and gutters and a final inspection report. Higher level plans may also involve continuing scheduled inspections, repairs and other maintenance tasks.
How much does roof maintenance cost?
Location, a commercial roof’s slope, its roofing material and the total square footage needing coverage all factor into the cost of a commercial roof maintenance plan. In general, you can expect to pay about $.25 per square foot if your roof is under a roofing maintenance plan that is conducted in reaction to problems that may arise. A more proactive roofing maintenance plan can run you on average almost half that amount, or $.14 per square foot.
What type of roof will last the longest?
A roof made of steel, metal, tile and concrete can, if properly maintained, can last upwards of 50 years. If your roof is made of typical asphalt shingles or is a single-ply or built-up style roof, then you can reasonably expect it to last for close to 30 years. Location (i.e. weather and temperature), workmanship and having or not having a roof maintenance plan can also determine a roof’s lifespan.
