Preventative Roofing Maintenance

Age and exposure to the elements invariably cause roof deterioration and, eventually, roof failure. As a result, implementing a preventive maintenance program to diagnose major roof problems before they occur is critical to extending roof life, protecting roof warranties and significantly reducing emergency repairs.

Silktown has 24/7 on-call dispatch for leaks and emergency repairs, as well as storm and hurricane damage analysis, repair, and insurance claim support.

Our semi-annual or annual roof inspections also protect standing warranties and extend the longevity of existing roofing systems.

Typically the annual cost of instituting a maintenance program ranges from 4 to 13 cents per square foot, plus the cost of repairs. By comparison, the cost of replacing that same roof may be upwards of $8 to $20 per square foot. Add to this the cost of lost product, disruption of operations, the cost of emergency repair, and it becomes merely common sense to take the necessary measures to prolong the life of your roof.

Deferring the cost of roof replacement for a period of five years or more saves not only the cost of replacement over that period, but also the opportunity costs on that money. Another benefit of the roof preventive maintenance program is the documentation that tracks warranty issues, ensuring that repair covered by your roof’s warranty does not become an additional out-of-pocket expense—saving you time and money.
