Reactive Vs Proactive
As a Property Owner or Manager, the condition and safety of your building is of high priority to you. The peace of mind you gain in being proactive (inspect and repair routinely) with your roofing maintenance, saving money in the long run and having less problems to worry about is worth its weight in gold. It’s no wonder many property owners and managers are moving to a roofing maintenance plan that will protect their building, their investment, their interior belongings and also the safety and welfare of their employees.
Proactive maintenance helps identify potential problem-causing areas, thus decreasing life-cycle costs. According to data gathered in a 15-year alliance between Firestone Building Products and ProLogis, with a proactive maintenance schedule in place, the average life-cycle cost is 14 cents per square foot. The average reactive maintenance life-cycle costs are 25 cents per square foot. A roofing system with proactive maintenance can have an average roof life of 21 years compared to 13 years with a reactive maintenance program, depending on the roofing system and building type.
Setting up a proactive maintenance schedule should be well thought out and tailored to your environmental conditions surrounding the building as well as your target roof life goal.
Omnipresence can set up a proactive maintenance and service schedule on a quarterly, semi-annual or annual basis. We also recommend maintenance checks be done immediately after severe storms involving high winds, heavy snowfalls, hail and downpours.
