DON’T MAKE THIS MISTAKE
A major mistake made by many building owners these days is thinking that a minor leak or problem on their roof can be ignored while they worry about and take care of other things, instead of making prompt repairs. The problem with this line of thinking is that it ignores the fact that the problem on their roof will continue to grow, and can also affect other areas of the roof, not just the issue in question. By spotting a problem on your roof and fixing it immediately, you eliminate the chance for that issue to get worse and reduce the possibility that it will negatively impact other areas of the roof.
Prompt Repairs Save Money
It is often easier to put off the roof issues that you find in an inspection, because not only do they take time, effort, and project management to get the repairs made, but they also take money to get the repairs made. By putting off the repairs, you can put off what could be a very large expense, which building owners often equate to saving their company money. However, once you put that repair off, it doesn’t go away. In fact, it usually gets worse. Prompt repairs may originally take X amount of dollars to be made, but after waiting they require 1.5X or 2X amount of dollars to be made. That means you didn’t save any money, you just delayed spending it and ended up spending more! By making repairs promptly when an issue arises, you can actually save money on your repair project.
Making roof repairs is something that no one likes to do – except for maybe a professional roof repair contractor. Assuming that you are a building owner or a facility manager, you probably don’t want to get caught making repairs all the time. Don’t let the burden of roof repairs make you decide to postpone them! You might cause more damage to your roof, and you will almost certainly end up spending more time and money making the repairs down the road.
