Why Opt for Our Preventative Maintenance System?

With over 20 years experience and dedication to service and roof maintenance, we know the importance of preventative maintenance.
Regular maintenance is crucial to extending the lifespan of your membrane or commercial roof. If your roof has an active manufacturer’s warranty, a preventative maintenance program may be a requirement to keep the warranty as a building owner. However, maintaining any roof system will extend the lifespan anywhere from 5-10 years.

What to Consider in Preventative Maintenance Costs

Periodic roof maintenance costs can vary based on several factors. Here are some key factors that contribute to the overall cost:

Roof Size and Complexity

The size and complexity of a roof play a significant role in determining the cost. Larger roofs require more time, labor, and materials to inspect, clean, and maintain. Complex roof designs with multiple levels, slopes, angles, and architectural features may also increase the cost due to the additional effort required.

Roof Accessibility

The ease of access to the roof affects the cost of maintenance. If the roof is easily reachable with safe and convenient access points, it generally reduces the labor and equipment costs. However, if the roof has limited access or requires special equipment, such as cranes or scaffolding, to perform maintenance tasks, it can increase the cost.

Maintenance Scope and Frequency

The specific scope of maintenance required and the frequency at which it needs to be performed will impact the cost. Routine maintenance tasks such as inspections, cleaning debris, gutter clearance, and minor repairs are generally less expensive compared to extensive repairs, resealing, or replacing damaged sections of the roof. The frequency of maintenance visits, whether it's done annually, semi-annually, or quarterly, will also affect the overall cost.

Roofing Material and Condition

The type of roofing material used on the commercial property's roof can influence the maintenance cost. Different roofing materials require specific maintenance techniques and may have varying costs for materials and labor. Additionally, the condition of the roof plays a role in the cost. If the roof has existing issues or requires significant repairs, the maintenance cost may be higher.

Safety Requirements and Regulations

Roof maintenance often involves working at heights and requires adherence to safety regulations. IES Roofing Services ensure the safety of its technicians, follow safety protocols, and we use specialized safety equipment, as needed. Safety considerations can affect the cost of maintenance.

Contractor's Expertise and Reputation

The experience, expertise, and reputation of the roofing contractor also contribute to the cost. IES Roofing Services has a track record of quality work with our expertise and assurance of reliable service. It's important to balance cost with qualifications and reputation.

Geographic Location

The cost of labor and materials can vary depending on the geographic location. Here in the Greenville SC area, that’s not a problem. But current local wages and market competition can influence the overall cost.

Bad Weather Calls for Good Roof Maintenance

Roof systems, unlike most other parts of a home or building, are very susceptible to the Southeast’s extreme seasonal temperature fluctuations, torrential rains, strong wind gusts, nesting or burrowing animals, and airborne debris kicked up by hurricanes, tornados, and tropical storms. It is not uncommon for leaks to occur when a roof is long neglected. Periodic roof maintenance by IES will catch developing problems before they become serious. 

Why Roof Maintenance Pays Off

  • Address small repair needs before they become costly problems 
  • Avoid business closures due to unexpected repair needs
  • Prolong the lifespan of your roof
  • Save money by postponing the need for roof replacement
