As we all know, a roof protects your buildings, and everything and everyone inside. However commercial roofs can be expensive, depending on the type of roofing material, size of the roof, and other factors. But your roof doesn’t have to break the bank. There are ways to save money without compromising quality or durability.
1. Know your warranty.
Whether you are the original building owner or manager, or you bought an existing building, it’s important to know if your roof is still under warranty, and if so, make sure you fully understand the coverage terms, conditions, and exclusions. If your roof needs repair or replacement, it might still be covered.
2. Lower your energy expenses.
When you work with a professional roofing contractor, they can inspect your roof to ensure everything is watertight and properly sealed. They can also tell you if you have energy-efficient roofing materials, which also will help reduce your energy costs. The result? A suitable, stable climate on the inside at an affordable price.
3. Schedule regular roof inspections.
At ASI, we recommend having your roof inspected at least two times per year, ideally in the spring and fall, to help make sure there are no cracks, leaks, etc. that could grow over time. By staying ahead of potential damage, you’re extending the life of your roof and saving yourself from costly repairs or a potential replacement. This regular maintenance is crucial in prolonging the lifespan of your commercial roof.
4. Choose a reputable roofing contractor.
You should not try to inspect or maintain your roof on your own. Not only do you have a business to run, but chances are you don’t know what you’re looking for. When hiring a commercial roofing contractor, choose a reputable and licensed professional who displays quality workmanship and uses the correct approach and a tailored roofing solution, which helps keep your costs down.
5. Maintain proper ventilation and insulation.
Having the correct type of ventilation and insulation is necessary to keep the temperature of your roof regulated. With regulated temperature, you’re helping to prevent the formation of ice dams and moisture accumulation. This helps to avoid potential roof damage, which can save you money in future roof repairs.
Following these five tips will help you save money on your commercial roof while ensuring quality, durability, and safety in the long run. Don’t wait until it’s too late. Contact our ASI Roofing team today to get your seasonal inspection scheduled! Click here or call 614-873-2057.
