Are Preventative Roof Maintenance Programs Worth the Cost?


As a homeowner, there are several aspects you must address to ensure your property remains functional and attractive. However, those costs eventually add up, and we understand why you would try to stretch your maintenance budget as far as possible. One of the things you’d typically do is ignore specific projects that aren’t an immediate concern, such as maintaining your roof. It seems logical to do if your roofing materials appear to be in excellent condition.

The problem with roof maintenance is that you can never predict when you may have a major problem resulting in the need for roof replacement. Think about your car for a second. You’re aware that you occasionally need an oil change and tire rotation. Similarly, whether you’ve recently replaced your roof or if it’s served you for the past two decades, a maintenance program is a must-have.

Bear in mind that while your car can give you signals that it’s due for a service, your roof cannot. For this reason, you need a professional to occasionally inspect the roof’s condition to ensure that it’s in top shape. Considering your investment in the ‘roof over your head’, wouldn’t it make sense to do everything to try and protect it? Only a maintenance program can give you peace of mind that your roof is in reliable hands.

If you’re still not convinced, perhaps these reasons to have a maintenance program in place will change your mind.

Roof maintenance involves occasionally inspecting the most vulnerable areas of the roof. The company you hire will inspect the roof at least once a year to determine if it’s in a condition that supports its function. They will find potential problems, diagnose the issue, and offer a solution before it transforms into a massive financial headache for you. The absence of a maintenance plan will allow minor issues to slowly develop until it becomes uncontrollable, resulting in a roofing emergency. Taking preventative action in the present can help save you money in the future.

If you’ve recently replaced your roof, it’s understandable to demand the maximum from your investment. A roof replacement isn’t cheap, so it’s wise to acquire a maintenance program. Typically, some roofing materials can last up to 25 years, and by hiring a professional to inspect the roof periodically, you will get the most out of your roof.

Apart from the fact that a maintenance program means you’re preventing further damage to the roof, there are other perks you can enjoy from a roofing contractor. Depending on the service provider, these may sometimes include minor discounts on future repairs, workmanship warranties, priority appointments, and a complete check-up with attic analysis. As a result, you enjoy more bang for your buck.

Nobody wants to spend their time worrying about the condition of their roof and if it may start leaking or cave in at any moment. By investing in a roof maintenance program, you also obtain peace of mind that you know it’s in reliable hands if there is an issue with your roof. The routine inspection will either catch a problem early or give your roof a clean bill of health. Either way, you and your family are safe, and you can be confident heading into stormy seasons.
