The best way to save money on getting a new roofing system is to maintain your current roof and its system. Without a good maintenance plan in place the roof can begin to fall apart very quickly with less attention than it needs. You can talk to a roofing contractor and they can help you implement a plan based on your roof. The next thing you know you can have a big repair that needs attending or worse the roof is in need of a tear off.


When your roof develops a problem it is important that you contact a roofing contractor to evaluate the issue sand come up with a solution. The longer a repair that needs attending doesn’t get fixed the worse and more problems it can cause until it is too late and the damage is so bad a total tear off is required. Once the insulation and decking gets ruined the cost of replacing goes up. That is why it is important to check your roof more often and have a maintenance plan in place.


It is generally a good idea to at least have an annual inspection by a professional roofing contractor with lots of experience on commercial flat roofs. They can see where there may be possible problems that building owners do not realize. The best time to have an inspection is in the spring time right after all the snow/ice is gone and temperatures are warmer near 70’s.
