Maintenance pays! The most important reason for performing maintenance on your commercial roof is to protect the capital investment you already have in that roof. When you buy a car, taking it in for service helps keep it in good shape and running smoothly. Plus, if there's a problem, a good mechanic will identify it before it gets to bad and causes too much damage, which can be costly. The same principle goes for roof maintenance, where your car is your roof!
Ongoing, proper roof maintenance will add years to the life of your roof and will, most likely, catch damages and leaks before they cause problems to the interior of your building.
