Why is Maintenance So Important?
The number one cause of premature roof failure is neglect of routine maintenance. Water entering the building damages not only the roof, but what’s inside. Even a small hole can let a large amount of water into a roofing system, damaging interiors, merchandise, equipment, not to mention the work environment and business productivity.
Roof replacements are traditionally one of the most costly investments that a building owner can make. At RAMCON, we focus on the continued maintenance of roofing assets and not just roof replacements. Our philosophy is to assist building owners in the maintenance and upkeep of their existing roofing assets with the intention of extending the service life of the roof assembly as long as it is a fiscally sound decision to do so.
We work with building owners and managers through various services to help you control costs. These managed services include roof maintenance plans, annual infrared scans of the roof assembly, coating applications when necessary and other services that allow a building owner to manage their roofs and the costs associated with maintaining them. We know that if a roof is properly maintained, it can yield far more valuable use life than if it unmanaged and left to deteriorate.
Roof Maintenance Pays Off
Roofing industry experts say that a building owner who budgets only 5 cents per square foot per year, can avoid losing three times that much per square foot each year. Add it up for a typical owner/manager, that’s easily tens of thousands of dollars each year in cost savings.
“The decision not to employ an aggressive roof maintenance program is costing owners between $.010 and $0.15 per sq. ft., per year.” – Dennis Firman, after managing 600 million sq. ft. of roof as maintenance chief for the U.S. Air Force.
